We can work with any department to coordinate printing and payment for any project that will be submitted through the Service Bureau. 

How does it work?

There are many ways for areas of the college to pay for printing for the various projects they undertake.




Departmental Funds use one of the many cards we have on file that are linked to a department’s printing budget. If you are a student, faculty or staff who have been granted access to this type of funding we will need departmental approval in the form of an email from the administrative contact sent to the Service Bureau at



What we can’t do





The Admin for your area can email the Service Bureau before you submit with your name, the funding amount and any other details that may be helpful to us.

We are not able to target specific budget lines other than printing funds. If you have questions about how to charge a department project or target another account please email the Service Bureau Manager – Jennifer Keats at jkeats@saic.edu and we will work to get everything worked out before the order is placed.



Who can use the Departmental funding?

If you work in an area that will have multiple users submitting jobs on your behalf and using a card on file here you can send us an email with a list of those users and for how long they have access. For example, you are in charge of five student workers in the SITE galleries and they may submit orders for the Fall semester on your behalf.

Who can submit orders on behalf of a department?

In order to track the funding of your group we require that only those listed as Leaders be the persons who are submitting orders on behalf of your group.

We have a database includes the authorized leaders and will use it to reference and track the remaining balance of your funds after your orders are submitted and paid for.

Want someone else to pick it up? Read below!

How do I let you know my order is for a specific department?

During the order process at the bottom of the window will be a section for Funding and Special Instructions.



Clicking on the Funding Option drop down you will see an option for Student Group. Choose that and then just below that will be a section for Special Instructions.

In that area you will let us know which Student Group you belong.



 Who can pick up orders once they are printed?

Anyone from your group can pick up your order once it has been charged to the correct account.

When your order is complete and paid for the Leader who submitted the order will receive an email with a link to schedule a pick up.

They can forward this email to whomever is going to be picking up your order – who can pick a day and time to come to campus that is convenient for them.  They will need to know the order number when scheduling the pick up. Once they schedule they will receive the code and instructions to the Lock Box.
