Using approved ASU vendors and preferred suppliers
Creative and development vendors
In an effort to help streamline the ability to contract with suppliers that provide any or all of the following services, Purchasing and Business Services issued RFP 322204 and awarded contracts to suppliers for:
- Creative production services (design, writing, photography).
- Videography and/or animation — motion graphics.
- Web development.
- Mobile application development.
- Augmented reality and virtual reality.
The awarded vendors are contractually required to complete annual brand training, follow all ASU brand standards and provide regular reports of the work they are doing on behalf of the university.
The summary of the contracted suppliers provides contact information and the awarded services. Your unit can obtain an estimate and contract with any of these firms without conducting a formal solicitation — acquiring competitive bids is not necessary.
Discuss vendor requests with your unit’s lead communicator so they are kept aware. Clear communication with leads will prevent confusion and help reduce the time for any approvals required.
University policy defines how units acquire printing services and products. Learn more about print acquisition at ASU.
It is recommended that departments utilize the Print and Imaging Lab for all their print projects. The Print and Imaging Lab, ASU's in-house print facility, offers on-demand high-quality color printing, variable printing, large format printing such as posters, tradeshow graphics, student and faculty projects, and promotional product printing such as metal name tags, wood photo plaques, awards, mugs, photo panels, mouse pads and much more. The Print and Imaging Lab is also licensed as an Internal Campus Supplier for promotional products through IMG College Licensing, more commonly known as CLC. The preferred method of payment for orders is cost center and program numbers along with any work tags. The Print and Imaging Lab also accepts purchasing cards.
For assistance from the Print and Imaging Lab please email Print ASU or call 480-727-1636.
If the Print and Imaging Lab cannot accommodate the department's needs or if they would like to use services from an external supplier, the department must submit a requisition in the FMS for the services. Please review the Procurement Quick Reference Guide and contact Purchasing and Business Services.
Departments must comply with the university’s brand standards on all print orders.
