Print

There was a time, not too long ago, when some were predicting the demise of print advertising; others were saying it was already dead. They were both wrong. The fact is, print is very much alive and well. Why? Because there are times when your marketing efforts need to make a lasting impression. And with the technological advancements of the past decade, print is more cost-effective and environmentally friendly than ever.

Print’s possibilities are truly endless…although MarComm Print, the design division of Marketing Communications, can help to narrow down the options, while also crafting a message that narrows in on your target market. Contact Tim Legge, MarComm Print’s director, and he’ll be happy to show you all of the exciting things that can be done with:

  • Magazines
  • Annual Reports
  • Brochures
  • Posters and Banners
  • Postcards and Invitations
  • Logo Design

Design

Simply put, the award-winning designers here at MarComm get it. And that’s good, because, since you’re here, you’ve probably got grand designs on a masterfully executed advertising and marketing campaign that includes both Web and Print, and you have neither the luxury of time nor the budget to waste on endless redesigns from designers who don’t get it. Or, maybe you’re here because you just need a postcard. Either way, you’ve come to the right place, because whether you need a full campaign or a digitally printed one-off, we can help. Helping our campus clients achieve their advertising and marketing goals is what we do.

No design project is too big or too small. Simply contact us , tell us what you need, and we’ll get it done.

Writing & Editing

A picture is worth a thousand words…except when it comes to marketing communications.

While it’s easy to imagine a print piece—ad, brochure, poster, or a cover story—featuring just words, it’s difficult to picture a very effective piece of communications featuring just a photograph or an illustration. And with regards to the Web, words are even more important, as it’s almost a certainty your website will never be found if it looks great but lacks appropriate, keyword-rich copy.

Words matter.

What you say matters.

How you say it matters.

At MarComm, we can customize editorial content to satisfy your needs and those of your intended audience, whether your copy needs are as short as a tagline/headline or bio, or as in-depth as a feature piece or a site write requiring expert keyword selection, original writing, and ethical search engine optimization (SEO). Of course, should you decide to write your own copy, MarComm can help refine your message, as well as provide professional editing and proofing.

You have something to say. If you can’t find the words to say it, contact us today.

Billing Policy

At MarComm, we charge an hourly rate for our marketing services that is approximately 40% below the rates of off-campus agencies. Below, you will see a breakdown of our rates for both Web and print design and writing.

Prior to starting a job, we work with our campus clients to come to an agreed upon budget. All time is tracked and billed to the quarter hour. As a department within the University of Notre Dame, we use FOAPAL to invoice. Note: a FOAPAL number is required prior to MarComm starting any work. Large print and Web projects are billed at the completion of the job, while smaller support projects are billed on a quarterly basis (July–September, October–December, January–March, and April–June). To ensure budget compliance, all fourth quarter support projects are closed and invoiced prior to the close of the fiscal year.

Rush projects are billed at double the following posted rates.
