Uniformed Services University

Graphics

We are a full-service design and production studio offering creative, professional graphic design to the USU community. Our dedicated graphic design professionals work closely with all our clients to enhance their products and generate results. In order to better serve you, we kindly ask those who require our services to contact us early in the project development phase so that we may have ample time to produce quality products and avoid costly or time-consuming delays or mistakes. 

The UMS Graphics Branch provides poster printing, displays, signs, diagrams, figures, charts and graphs for publications and numerous other graphic products. We can create medical/scientific charts, graphs, and text for journal publication, poster session displays, and visual aids for meetings and classroom presentations. We produce detailed publication-quality diagrams in B&W or color, line drawings to supplement teaching programs, accompany articles for publication, or illustrate research displayed in poster sessions. We also create a variety of informational signs, forms, brochures, logos, books, covers, folders, banners, and flyers to support the USU mission and activities.

Graphics is a “Fee for Service” branch. Project charges are billed to current and valid University Cost Centers or grants.  We do not accept any form of personal payment. We are happy to provide estimates for projects of any size.

Most projects are generally handled on a first come, first served basis and require sufficient turn-around time, which will affect the completion of other pending requests.  In short, the turn-around time for your project is predicated upon by the complexity and scope of your project, and our current workload. Please be patient with us as we work to meet your and others’ needs.

Please contact us ahead of time to get an approximation of when your project will be completed.

Again, please bear in mind when submitting a new project that we serve the entire USUHS community and therefore may not be able to immediately begin working on your project. Although we seek to meet your production needs as timely and efficiently as possible, we need  your help in doing so. Please contact us at the planning stage of your project. We will help you resolve any technical issues prior to your expending unnecessary time and effort, make suggestions to streamline the process, as well as  give you a better idea when your project will be completed and delivered.

Currently, the majority of graphic design and production work takes place off campus at our Twinbrook location, and as such, precludes us from having walk-in customers at Twinbrook . All work requests can be submitted either online to graphics@usuhs.edu or by going to our Customer Service Center located in G070 and filling out a work request form. We urge you to follow up with us by confirming that we received your work request along with your work file(s) and that there are no problems or questions regarding your project. Because our graphic design work takes place off campus, we ask that you factor in additional delivery time (usually a day) to the USUHS campus when considering your turn-around time.
