PSA Communications Project Request Guidelines

The PSA Communications team strives to meet deadlines and deliver the highest quality work possible; however, we need your help to manage a heavy project load. 

To ensure that your project is completed on time, please plan ahead and allow adequate production time. Let us know your needs as soon as you know communications materials are needed.

Below are estimated production times for several project types. The actual delivery time will depend on the complexity of your project, how soon we receive all approved text and images, and the workload.

Please respect our need to plan our work and do not request a “RUSH” project simply because you didn’t plan ahead.


  • Text review and design cannot start until we have all approved text and images
  • Add 2-3 weeks (10-15 working days) if your project requires writing, text editing or photography
  • Changes to text or design will delay the delivery time
  • Priority will be given to projects identified as critical by administrators and to projects with event- or mailing-driven deadlines
