Business cards receive makeover

Design and Printing Services has announced a revised college business card that is available for in-house reproduction. This process allows for cards to be ordered in the amount needed, speeds up turn-around time and saves money. The type is slightly larger and uses the sans-mountain logo. Cards will continue to be printed in blue ink on white stock, but will not have thermograph (raised) lettering. Orders can be placed using a Design Work Request form with the business card template, available at Design Services (Haggerty Administration Building, Room 511). For more information, contact Mary Kastner at or x3241 or x3971.

From 1998 to 2003, she developed the Outreach Program at the Council on Latin American and Iberian Studies at Yale University, where she designed professional development programs for educators.
