Revised Contract for Stationery, Envelopes and Business Cards
Jack Battenfield, Associate Vice President
Effective July 1, 1999, UF Printing and Graphic Services will no longer print stationery and business cards and therefore is no longer part of the university’s contract for official stationery, envelopes and business cards. The contract (bid #99J-33YC) remains in effect for the year ending June 30, 2000, with printing provided by Double M and Ameriprint. Prices remain at less than 25 percent of what was charged nine years ago. Services continue to include free pick-up and delivery and quick turn-around time (generally no more than five working days).
Typesetting charges for stationery and envelopes varies from free to $8, and prices for the optional blue ink varies from $7 to $10.
You can select from either printer, use black or navy blue ink, economy or quality recycled paper stock. You can also select from two economy envelopes: one that matches the economy letterhead and one that is slightly less in quality but better for mass mailings.
Prices for essentially the same stationery order can vary by more than 40 percent. To determine the best buy, add the cost of the items you want plus possible first-time typesetting and the possible charge if you prefer blue ink.
Remember that you can buy from either printer. You are not expected to buy stationery from one printer and envelopes from another just to save 50 cents. Convenience also has a value. Envelopes and letterhead generally match better if from the same printer on the same brand of paper.
Please provide this information to the person in your office who orders stationery, envelopes and business cards. Detailed information on stationery and cost will be sent to you in campus mail and be available on the web at http://www.admin.ufl.edu/ddd/dddlist.htm
