Publication Request

Publications Request Form

The VASG communications center is responsible for co-branding of all partner projects. (For this reason please consult our styleguide before submitting this form.) This form is meant to be the start of an enjoyable discussion, whereby we can log your new project into the workflow. As such please understand that we require a three week lead to accommodate your request. This would allow time for production, two reviews, a final proof, and if necessary printing.

Production Schedule: Because publications range in size, text, purpose, complexity and components, the time for design and printing (if required) varies significantly. An update of an existing postcard can be turned around in two weeks (a week for design and proofing, and a week for printing), while a new publication that is multiple pages, requires new text and new photography, can take up to eight weeks (four to six weeks for writing, photography, design and proofing, and two to three weeks to print).

Please fill in all of the information boxes below.
