Frequently Asked Questions
How much will my project cost?
This varies depending on the project. If you are a student, refer to the pricing page to get an idea of what you can expect to pay. Graphics time is billed at an hourly rate of $15 for students, and $20 for faculty/staff. A single 11"x17" poster is $0.70, and a large glossy poster is $15 per linear foot if printed at CIT Poster Printing on campus. If you would like the Graphics Office to quote a job for you, simply fill out the online order form and type "Request for Quote - [Name of project]" in the "Title of event or project" box.
How long will my project take?
Most projects generally take four (4) weeks to complete, including print time. For large brochures, catalogs, or websites, the time can take longer. It is best to set up a meeting with the Coordinator prior to starting your project so that an appropriate timeline can be established.
What information do you need?
The Graphics Office has designed an online order form to gather all the necessary information for your project. Take a look at this form if you are gathering information. Feel free to contact us if you have questions.
What types of projects do you do?
All kinds! Take a look at our portfolio in the orange sidebar on the right of each page. Categories range from student posters, postcards, brochures, logos and websites. Other projects such as tshirts, stickers, pocket booklets and life-sized cut-outs have also been done.
What is a "high-res" image?
A high-res image is an image of high enough resolution to be used for print. These images are at least 300dpi (dots per inch). Most images you find off the web are 72dpi, which are not suitable for print because they will appear grainy and/or pixelated. If you have questions or want to know if your image is high-res, email the Coordinator.
