The print publishing staff is located in the Office of College Communications and Marketing (CCM) suite on the second floor of Alumni Hall.

If you need assistance developing your print materials, please contact to initiate the process. We will help to determine if there is a web or digital distribution component to your project and will distribute project information to the appropriate CCM staff members where needed. Our office is available to assist departments in their efforts to create and maintain official college brand collateral.

Below, you will find an overview of the publication services we can offer to assist you with your print projects. All faculty and staff are encouraged to review and understand the college’s Print Publishing Guidelines, especially the list of questions to consider about your project.

Publication Services

Print Publications & Materials Development and Planning

  • Whether you are creating a new print publication or updating existing publications, we will work with you to help determine the best way to produce your publication to fit your needs. As part of this process, we will provide you with a production schedule based on the project requirements.
  • Timing will depend on the size of the project. Small jobs or revisions to existing publications often take less time, whereas new or large projects can take eight to 12 weeks.

Preparing & Proofreading Your Copy

  • As you are developing the copy for your publications, please review the Print Publishing Guidelines (PDF/103KB) for writing copy and submitting your copy.
  • For most projects, you will be provided with digital proofs of the final publication for your approval via our web-based project management system, Basecamp. Campus partners are responsible for proofreading and approving the proofs. Extensive changes made at this point in the process can delay the project and add to the cost. In most cases, we request that proofs are returned within 48 hours. Four rounds of proofs are the maximum number allowed on major print projects, so please be sure to proofread carefully


  • CCM possesses the expertise to select the photos best suited for your publication. Where appropriate, the Creative Director will provide options from which campus partners may choose, accessible through our web-based photo library, Portfolio.
  • If you are submitting your own photography for a print publication, we ask that you submit high-resolution (600 dpi) color digital files of the photos. We can use color prints, black and white prints, or transparencies (slides), but these require scanning, which may require extra time.
  • For specific photography needs, CCM can hire and schedule a freelance photographer and advise you on what photos to take. Photo shoots typically take 2-4 weeks to schedule and complete, so you will want to plan this time into your overall project schedule.

Online Templates

  • CCM has various online templates available for Saint Anselm annual projects that you can easily edit online, and the PDF is delivered to the college and printed in our print shop. The templates are not intended for large, off-set printing projects.
  • Log in to Saint Anselm's Online Ordering Page.

Other Print Publications
(signs, programs, fliers, other small printed pieces)

  • CCM has installed a computer workstand loaded with the college's official fonts, color palette and logos in the Print Shop.
  • The purpose of this workstand is to provide our brand assets to the college community, so that any departmental or smaller printed pieces that are produced outside of CCM can be consistent, with the same look and feel as official college publications, as we strive to effectively communicate our unique Anselmian brand to the world. 
  • Please review the CCM Brand Review Process and Workstand Instructions (PDF/94KB) to learn more. These documents are also available on the workstand.
  • As always, CCM is available to work with departments and offices on larger publications that require design and print assistance.

*For full explanations, please review the guidelines (PDF/103KB).

  • College Descriptions

    When designing publications for external audiences, it is recommended that one of the following standard college descriptions be used. Two versions of varying lengths are available for your use:

    Version One

    Founded in 1889, Saint Anselm College is a Benedictine, Catholic, liberal arts college dedicated to undergraduate education. Located on 400 acres overlooking Manchester, NH, Saint Anselm seeks to provide an educational experience that promotes the intellectual, spiritual and personal growth of its students. Saint Anselm College is the third oldest Catholic college in New England.

    Version Two

    Founded in 1889, Saint Anselm College is a Benedictine, Catholic, liberal arts college dedicated to undergraduate education. Located on 400 acres overlooking Manchester, NH, Saint Anselm seeks to provide an educational experience that promotes the intellectual, spiritual and personal growth of its students. The college's nationally recognized Humanities Program challenges students to think critically about timeless questions of value, moral choice and human greatness. The college's Benedictine heritage is reflected in long-standing traditions of hospitality, a love of learning, community service, and citizenship. The third oldest Catholic college in New England, Saint Anselm enrolls just under 2,000 students, with about 40 percent participating in community service in New Hampshire and throughout the country.

    The preferred method of referring to the college is Saint Anselm College.

  • Editorial Review

    The Office of College Communications and Marketing has the responsibility to ensure that all official Saint Anselm publications and printed materials project a consistent editorial and graphic identity.

    To ensure editorial consistency among printed and Web publications, the college follows the guidelines of the The Chicago Manual of Style for all publications except Portraits magazine and news related writing, which follows the Associated Press Stylebook and Briefing on Media Law. Our guide for word use and spelling is Webster's New World College Dictionary. We have created an online style guide ( addressing college-specific usage as well as the most common style questions regarding capitalization, punctuation, title, etc. For guidance on style questions not addressed there, refer to The Chicago Manual of Style, AP Stylebook, or Webster's Dictionary.

    The Office of College Communications and Marketing, whether produced on campus or with external vendors, should review publications and advertising required by all academic and administrative departments of the college. As needed, the director of creative services will work with staff and faculty to assist with design, review, and content. Admission and Advancement publications have scheduling priority.

  • Cost

    The Office of College Communications and Marketing offers editing, design, and print production management at no cost to departments, to help create the best publications possible to meet specific needs. Photography, external design services, printing, and postage are charged to the department requesting the service.
