Good for nothing!
Looking for a low cost way to communicate your message across campus? Publications and Creative Services can help you at a minimal cost...You might have noticed or received the creative cards that have been distributed through inter-departmental mail (no postage needed) over the last five or six weeks. These cards were printed by our own ASU Print Shop on scrap paper, and designed by the creative crew in Publications and Creative Services. All of this was done for less than you can treat your family out to pizza! So, the next time you need to get your message across the campus, consider calling Ron, Mark, Georgia or Heath in Publications and Creative Services.
