Requesting Services

To request our services please email: soneddes@unc.edu. No time is too soon to submit your EDS Request. Upon receipt of your request, you will be contacted to arrange an initial consultation appointment. During this meeting we will assess your project and determine how we may best help you to meet your goals.

What we need from you

Email requests must include the following information: the date the project is needed, your name, type of project (web-based graphic, poster, slides, computer presentation, brochure, etc.) and any details that are necessary to complete your project.

A 3-week turnaround is normally requested for most major projects. This time begins after we receive final project content approved and submitted by all contributors.

Please note: We ask that all copy for posters and desktop publishing projects come to us as Word files. If you have statistical data that are in another program, contact us so we can help you determine a format best suited to your needs and ours. We will work with you to suggest formats for Word documents that will help us meet your deadline. If you are in charge of a project with multiple participants, please be sure that all persons approve project materials prior to submission to EDS for production.
