You can generate an estimate quote in the Print Services Ordering System at any time. These steps demonstrate how to create a quote in general. The process is the same for whichever print product you are quoting, selecting the product and defining your specifications based on that product.
Notice that the Order Process Complete screen (Figure 2) shows Current Status as Quote Only:
When you Save as Quote it is not sent to Print Services. The quote is for your own quote comparison and/or approval processes as needed, and will not generate an order. To convert your quote into an order, go to My Orders > View the quote of interest > and click Submit Order.
Before you Submit Order for a quote, make sure it is a complete order! Quotes can be generated without attaching files, so if your order should have a file attachment, or any other part of the quote needs to be updated, make those revisions before you submit to avoid delays in order processing.
Submit your order online and upload your files all in one place. Pay for your orders using UB account numbers, campus cash, or credit card via UB Marketplace.
