Purchasing Method

Email or call one of the supplier contacts listed on this page.  Request a quote (and samples, if applicable).  Once you have a quote that is acceptable to you, request a purchase order in PantherExpress using the USD/Quote Standard Form. You do not need to collect 3 quotes to complete the process when using University-wide contracted suppliers.

You may contact one or many of the University-contracted printers for quotes to compare pricing, quality, delivery times, etc. You may decide which University-wide contracted supplier to contract with based on these findings.

If you need assistance with design, you may hire a University-wide Contracted Supplier for graphic design or contact University Communications and Marketing.
