Beginning January 1, 2013, Computing Services will no longer offer name tag or name tent printing services.
The process of creating and printing name tags and tents is something easily done within Word, and given our staffing changes and the increasing nature of last minute requests it is just not something we can effectively keep up with anymore.
We will continue to offer name tag and tent printing through the end of the year, and are happy to come to your office and show you how to do merges from Excel into Word templates onto specific Avery stock. It’s a very simple, straight-forward process.
If you need suggestions about what kind of paper stock to buy, we've included a few options from Avery at the end of this message. Avery does not, however, provide the scored card stock used for name tents--that is ordered through Lise Reed (firstname.lastname@example.org) from UM Printing Services.
Alternatively, you could use outside vendors such as Dollar Bill Copying
on 611 Church (665-9200), or the Kolossos
on 2055 W. Stadium (994-5400). We've called and verified with each that they would be able to accommodate such requests.
We apologize for any inconvenience this causes but hope you'll understand that this is a necessary change for our department to make.
If you have any questions please feel free to respond to this message.
