Wayne State University

Strategic Partnership Printers

The university has selected three commercial print vendors to serve as preferred suppliers, as the result of a competitive bid effort. The three vendors will provide a significant cost savings to the university, improve customer service, and increase efficiency in the print ordering process.

The Mardon Group/Allied Pricing Guide

We are pleased to announce Mardon Group (dba Allied Printing) as a new minority strategic partner. Both Inland Press and Graphics East have a long history of successfully working with the university. Each vendor has completed a rate guide to help you with pricing orders. Each of them have full capability to handle your printing needs.

The university no longer has a preferred supplier for direct mailing service. Each of the commercial print vendors, with appropriate permissions, can provide direct mailing service. That eliminates the burden of having one company print and then send to another company to mail.

Please proceed as you normally would to secure printing services. Discuss your print job with the print vendor of your choice, and have them submit a quote to you. Once you are satisfied with the quote, prepare a WayneBuy Requisition and upload the quote in WayneBuy as support documentation. Please use the Print Request Form to initiate your requisition. The Print Request Form is available on the WayneBuy homepage, in the forms section. It is the third box over labeled Printing Request. 

If you are unsure about the capabilities/specialties of each vendor, contact them directly, or contact Christa. If you have questions about WayneBuy or the requisition process, please contact Robin.
