The News & Media Services office at the Virginia Institute of Marine Science disseminates VIMS news via press releases, the VIMS website, social media, and other channels. The Office also supports public outreach programs and internal audiences with its Publications Center and Print Shop.
Publications Center and Print Shop
We offer a variety of low-cost media and graphic services for VIMS faculty, staff, and students. Because we are a service center, you need just an account number for all services and materials—no purchase orders or copy cards required.
Learn about the services we provide, from poster printing to PowerPoint templates, and from binding to business cards.
