Print & Graphic Design Supplier Consolidation

Effective, November 24, 2021, print and graphic design suppliers were consolidated so that these services can only be purchased through a limited number of University-wide Contracted Suppliers. This means:

  • Print & graphic design suppliers have been consolidated so that these services can only be purchased through a limited number of University-wide Contracted Suppliers. 
  • No new Purchase Orders will be able to be placed in the PantherExpress System or PRISM with print and graphic design suppliers that have been consolidated.
  • Contracts established prior to November 24, 2021 will be honored and invoices will still be able to be processed against those existing Purchase Orders.
  • All University-wide Contracted Suppliers are available and able to service all University of Pittsburgh campuses. 
  • University resources such as Printing Services and University Communications may still be available to assist with your project.

As a reminder, University Policy AO 30 requires that departments use a University-wide Contracted Supplier for purchasing items/services for which the University has an agreement. Additionally, utilizing University-wide Contracted Suppliers for print/graphic design services provides a variety of benefits to the University and your department, including: 

  • Best overall value and brand fidelity to the University.  
  • Competitive pricing. Please note: we still recommended obtaining quotes from multiple suppliers to ensure the best pricing. 
  • Wide range of high-quality services to fit needs. 
  • Faster contracting process for the services required. 
  • Supporting local and diverse businesses.
