Brochure Design/Layout

BCU is happy to design your brochure or flyer. We can also provide design advice. Labor and design fees apply at $65.00 per hour.

Please call or stop by to set up a consultation for initial layout and design requirements as related to the WSU Brand.

Design Templates

If you would like to design your own brochure, we recommend starting with a template.

The first step is knowing where and on what equipment the brochure or flyer will print. The copier or printer you are using will have limitations. If you design for those limitations, your end product will turn out better and be easier to produce.

Copy machines cannot print to the edge of the paper unless you print on an oversized piece of paper and then cut it to size. When the ink/image/design goes right to the edge, this is called "bleeding to the edge". This is a more expensive option because it uses larger paper and includes a cutting fee. An 8.5x11 tri-fold brochure with bleed will cost approximately $1.42 each PLUS $16.25 labor for the entire job for cutting. The same brochure without bleed will cost .77 cents each.
100 brochures without bleed - $77.00
100 brochures with bleed - $158.25

Recognition Awards and Certificates

We can create unique awards and certificates that can be printed, mounted, framed or laminated. These custom made recognition awards are great for retirements, special recognitions, or service awards for staff, faculty, students and special donors. Please set up a consultation meeting with our staff to create a specific template and layout for you or your department. Please bring all of the necessary text, in a word file format, and graphics in an electronic format, needed for your award or certificate.

Certificate setup fees cost $16.25 and each print is $2.00. Layout design fees for custom certificates cost $65.00 per hour of labor.
