Copy and Print Services
St. Edward’s University has partnered with FedEx Office to provide discounted copy and print services for our campus community. FedEx Office can process both simple and complex copy and print orders, including signs and graphics and most orders are available to be delivered to campus at no additional cost. FedEx Office is also able to provide packing and distribution for these projects.
Copy and Print Consultation
A FedEx Office Solutions Consultant is available to the St. Edward’s community to advise on large or complex FedEx Office projects. Please contact Eddie James at eddie.james [at] fedex.com to set up a consultation or discuss your needs.
The FedEx Print-On-Demand portal can be used to order St. Edward's University branded letterhead, business cards, signs, posters, brochures, color and black and white copies and more. If you do not have a FedEx Print-On-Demand account and would like to set one up, please contact business.services [at] stedwards.edu.
Employees can also visit the FedEx Office location assigned to our university account at 327 Congress Ave (4th and Congress), to place orders in person or call 512-472-4448. Employees must provide the university’s FedEx Office Discount Number (0889865610) and show their University Photo ID to receive the university’s negotiated pricing.
Please see the FAQs for additional information regarding order submission.
Paying for Orders
Those with PCards are strongly encouraged to submit orders via the FedEx Print-On-Demand portal and pay via PCard within the portal. For those without PCards, orders can be placed within the portal by providing a FOAPAL. Employees that submit orders via email are able to arrange payment via PCard or FOAPAL by contacting FedEx Office staff.
Employees that pay via personal card, cash, or check, can submit the expense via Concur to get reimbursed. Employees should keep the receipt for any orders paid for out-of-pocket to include in their expense report if necessary. For questions about Concur, please contact AP [at] stedwards.edu.
Turnaround time and Delivery
While most copy and print orders can be completed and delivered to campus within 24 hours, larger standard copy jobs or jobs that require binding, cutting, or lamination may take additional days to process and deliver. Delivery to campus is available for free for those orders that are completed at our partner FedEx Office near-site location.
More complex jobs such as large scale printing, sign and graphic printing, and orders including graphic design services may take a few days to process. Similarly, orders for press printing, custom printed boxes, and promotional products may require up to three weeks to source and process. When submitting these types of orders, please consider your timeline well in advance and allow enough time for processing.
Depending on the type of order, there are different delivery options available. For most projects, the default process will be to have those orders delivered by FedEx to the Operations Building and brought to the Smart Lockers in the Quick Dip for pickup.
If an employee needs a copy or print job completed more immediately, they can visit the near site FedEx Office location at 327 Congress Ave or use a departmental leased copier (one is available for use in the Library) or other desktop printer.
