In April, ABA's Reprographics team was recognized by the Association of College & University Printers (ACUP) for their outstanding work in handling an accelerated work order.

According to the ACUP, the Accelerated Service Award is given to the in-plant that best successfully meets an extreme production deadline. In this case, Reprographics was tasked with producing an additional 44 binders for a client, each with separate tabs, covers, inserts, black & white printing, etc., on top of the 107 binders they had already produced - all within a critically short timeframe.

The Reprographics print shop is known to produce not only outstanding work, but to perform on-demand, often given short notice. Below is an excerptfor the award from the ACUP:

"...The following Monday morning - the day the trainings began – Reprographics received a call indicating a last-minute enrollment surge had occurred. Reprographics was asked to produce an additional 44 binders for all five days – and remember, a different binder for each day was required – and they needed to be completed by noon, that same day!

This was a tremendous task to be completed in very short order. Each binder required black & white pages, color pages, tabs, covers, spines, insertion into the 44 binders and boxing up for shipping. By 10:30 that same morning, the program manager was told that the entire project had just that moment been completed and was ready for pickup.

Our judges found this performance to be the best of the best. They noted Sacramento State's Reprographics Office's dedication and commitment to serving the demands of an anxious client, on a precise time schedule, and with last minute changes and additions."
