Placing orders

Preferred supplier

Do you work according to a preferred supplier-agreement? You can directly assign your design or DTP-tasks to this design agency. Not sure whether your organisational unit or faculty makes use of a preferred supplier agreement? Contact the house style coordinator or your unit.


If your organisational unit does not use cooperate with one preferred supplier, all design agencies should be notified of each new assignment. This offers each of the three design agencies the opportunity to submit a quote and enables you to compare the different offers you receive. Each mini-competition you run helps you decide whom you assign each task.
