Campus Distributions

Campus distributions are a great way to get your message into the hands of faculty, staff, and administrators at Sacramento State. This service is available to university departments, bonafide faculty/staff/student organizations, and university auxiliaries.

Campus distributions can be requested through Print Shop Pro. You may either request your project to be printed and distributed, or you may verify the count needed for your specific distribution and supply the required number of pieces.

Updating our Distribution Sheets:
Help us keep the campus distribution counts and administrator names current. For each of the categories below, search or scroll down to locate your department mail stop. The administration list includes the names of MPP, Program Director, Associate Dean and Department Chair contacts for your mail stop. The faculty/staff list includes the count only for each category. Then click here to submit any deletions, changes or additions to your department's information. The lists are updated on a quarterly basis.

Please note: To avoid a common cause of duplicate mailings, do not include MPP, Program Directors, Associate Deans or Department Chairs in your faculty or staff counts.

Outside Vendor Policy

Can I use an outside vendor for printing?

Per the University Procurement Manual, University Print has the right to review all print and copy projects for the University.

Should University Print be unable to provide the required service within the necessary timeframe, or price match an outside quote, we have the option of coordinating the project with an off-campus vendor.

Alternatively, University Print may issue the department an approval to use an outside vendor for a specific job. If you would like more information pertaining to the use of an off-campus vendor, please contact University Print directly at extension 8-6198.
