Print Solutions

The print team at Phillips Academy is dedicated to creating customized branded communications to promote the school. Working collaboratively across the Academy and in tandem with our digital colleagues, the print team executes more than 250 unique pieces annually ranging from invitations and program booklets to Andover magazine and custom donor materials.

Our primary focus is developing “external facing” materials for our key internal clients: the Office of Admission, the Office of Academy Resources, and the Office of Alumni Engagement.

For assistance in creating print materials or identifying external resources to help you develop print materials, please contact any member of our team listed at the bottom of this page, or email Allyson Irish, director of editorial and creative services, at airish@andover.edu.

Raise awareness, inform your target audience


Posters are a great way to share information with the Andover community. Please plan ahead and allow three weeks for a poster to be completed. All information should be sent to Ken Puleo and Jill H. Clerkin.

In order for us to create a poster for you, please provide the following:

  • Date posters are needed “in hand” (you generally want posters up at least one week prior to event)
  • Account number for billing
  • Quantity desired (25 is typical for on-campus posting)
  • Text (see below)
  • Photo(s) and other graphics. We need all images to be high resolution (2 MB or larger) if possible, otherwise images will be grainy

The right information can make all the difference between a confusing poster or something that is really interesting and clear. In order to make your announcement stand out and provide the necessary information to the Andover community, please provide the following:

  • Headline suggestion(s)
  • Speaker name (include graduation year if a student)
  • Title of talk/event
  • Day, date, time, location
  • Faculty Advisor w/ title
  • Will food/dessert be served?
  • Free and open to the public?
  • Provide approximately 200 words of descriptive text. Include a summary of the event/talk and provide information on the speaker. Text will be edited for clarity and Andover style.
  • Information about who is sponsoring the event
  • Information about who is funding the event (please provide exact fund names)
