The Day the Earth Stood Still
We knew there would be a new President. Understood clearly that he was from the business sector. We had some concerns about outsourcing but believed that our business model was sound and respected within the University and nationally. To prepare for the new administration, our team prepared a report outlining the long history of service and quality. A report that showcased our abilities from design thru production. A piece so special and that told such a compelling tale that upon reading it any person would know that OU Printing and Mailing Services was truly the biggest and best University operation in the county.
