Submitting source files

Products such as standard UCSD letterhead and business cards ask you to choose from official logos and do not accept alternative source files. On print jobs that do accept source files, you will see “File Upload” at the top of the page. You can submit your source file in one of these ways:

  • Digital files from your computer: Select the “Upload file” tab and click “Browse” to navigate to your folder.
    • Previously used files: Choose from those listed in the “My Saved Files” box. If none are listed, you have no saved files.
  • Digital media such as CDs or paper hard copies: Select the “Offline Material” tab and specify how you'll deliver the original to Imprints:
    • Bring to any Imprints location
    • Send via campus mail to Imprints, Mail Code 0031
