Self-Produced Publications

If you choose to self-produce you must follow these procedures:

1. Maintain the graphic identity of FIT

The college's graphic identity relies on the consistent application of the logo, typefaces, and colors that represent the FIT brand. You must follow the guidelines in the FIT Style Guide in order to properly implement the FIT graphic identity.

2. Submit a proof to Communications and External Relations

Please send a PDF or a hard copy to Ellen Davidson one week prior to printing.

Useful Tips When Self-Producing

  • Fact-check all copy. Do not assume that supplied names, titles, websites, etc. are correct. Research and confirm all dates, locations, and other logistical information.
  • Schedule realistically, building in time for proofreading, approval by your supervisors, corrections, final file preparation, and distribution/mailing of your final project.
  • Know what printing resources you will be using prior to designing your project. FIT's print shop, the college's PrintFX/Graphics Lab, and external service providers all have different capabilities.
