The Process

Provide OCM with the content facts and key copy points for your project with the form; be sure to zip multiple attachments to upload them, and we will get to work. Send any logos and/or photography necessary, or we can arrange to have photos taken or selected from our archives.

We will begin working on a project once we receive all the content and/or materials from you and you’ve signed off on our estimate. While giving us a heads up that a project is coming our way is appreciated, we cannot officially put it in the queue and line up resources until the request is presented in its entirety.

If we are starting with brand new copy for your project, OCM will either send you a written draft to review prior to our starting design or you will receive a first proof of the project with the edited copy in place. Share this proof with all the people responsible for final sign-off and be sure that you are happy with all aspects of the copy and design. Read the copy thoroughly for any errors and get feedback from your peers. This is the time to bring up issues and concerns or any major overhauls to copy or design. After this point, it can negatively impact your timeline and budget.

If you have issues or concerns about the piece at this stage, contact OCM immediately so we can address the problem.

We’ll send you a final proof. If it’s perfect, you sign off on the project, and we will send it to the printer or other vendor.

Note: We do our best to avoid mistakes, but it is ultimately your unit’s responsibility to review and verify all content you wish to publish. This includes the proper spelling of names and the accuracy of dates, fees, addresses and other information. As a general rule, please have three different people review your material before you approve it to print.

Please take ample time to review the project at this stage before it goes to print; even the smallest of changes can be extremely costly and will be your unit’s financial responsibility.
