Utley Brothers has been a University source for Business Cards for many years. In the past few months, Procurement and Strategic Sourcing (PASS) has conducted a Request for Proposal process for this commodity, and Utley Brothers is the successful vendor.
As a result, we are pleased to announce that the program is now being expanded to include your Business Card, Letterhead and Letterhead Envelope needs. Access is obtained in the same manner as previously, via the Super Savings Opportunities on our website, www.purchasing.wayne.edu. Access to this page requires a WSU login ID and Password. Once there, scroll down to Utley Brothers, and you will find a page with detailed instructions on how to access Utley’s website and how to obtain a logon and password.
Some of the many benefits of this program are listed below:
- Simple to use;
- Utley Brothers will continue to accept both Procurement Card and IRB orders
- Real time proofs for the placement of orders
Annual savings to the University community on the Business Cards alone are estimated to be approximately $10,000. Since we’ve not aggregated our spend for Letterhead, we cannot forecast the savings on that, but based on the unit prices, we believe it to be substantial.
It’s still that simple. Place your order online, and you will receive your order within 6 business days. At the end of the month, all orders will be debited to the designated accounts.
The system is limited to the purchase of Business Cards, Letterheads and Envelopes. Commercial printing orders must still be placed using a Purchase Requisition for the time being.
