Marketing Services Requests

The Marketing and Communications staff can help you get the word out about your event, achievement or program. We have the expertise and tools to help you reach your intended audience.

Please make your request for Marketing and Communications services as soon as possible before your event. We work hard to provide you the best materials we can create, but that takes time and effort.

Marketing and Communications prioritizes all requests, taking special note of deadlines and event dates. Marketing and Communications reserves the right to alter that prioritization in the event of emergencies, scheduling conflicts and availability, and College-level priorities.

Multifaceted Requests

If you have a large project, if your request will involve several of Marketing and Communications’ services, or if you’d simply like to discuss a multifaceted project in person, please contact Julia Wood.

Written Communication

Your needs may include media outreach or written copy — everything from news releases, announcements in “Inside Pellissippi” or another type of article or publication. For written communication, please contact Lesli Bales-Sherrod. Please issue all requests at least three (3) weeks prior to your event or deadline to accommodate media and publication deadlines.


Maybe you wish to discuss a publication — whether it’s a poster, brochure, flyer, postcard, stationery, business cards or more — please use our Publication Request Form. Design services are now free, but your department or division will be charged for the cost of materials.


To request photography services, please us our Photography Request Form.

If you plan to use other photographer(s) for event coverage, whether those photographers are professional photographers, Pellissippi State employees or Pellissippi State students, please notify Marketing and Communications in advance at We can provide you with the proper Photo Release Forms.

Promotional Materials

If you’re looking for the media wall, tabletop displays, or tablecloths and runners, please submit a request through 25Live. Promotional items and giveaways ordered by the Marketing and Communications office are reserved for student recruitment purposes and can be obtained by contacting Julia Wood.

Instructions for ordering promotional items: 

  1. If you are ordering promotional items that include only a College logo, simply submit a requisition and work with Purchasing to complete your order. You do not need to contact Marketing and Communications.
  2. If you wish to incorporate custom artwork for a promotional item, then all artwork and designs must be approved by or created by the Marketing and Communications office to ensure that consistent College branding is maintained.
  3. To request artwork, complete the Publication Request Form and specify the details of your request. Include any ideas or requests you may have about the design for the item you are ordering, and also information about or a link to the specific item, so that our designers can refer to the vendor’s imprint instructions, such as colors, size, file formats, etc. 
  4. Submit a Requisition through Pellibiz. Marketing and Communications will develop the requested artwork, and we will get your approval before sending press-ready artwork to the Purchasing office or vendor.

Social Media

To share an announcement or event on one of Pellissippi State’s official social media channels, please contact email


At times, areas of the College wish to promote their events through paid advertising. Marketing and Communications can help with recommendations, design and placement. Advertising is an expensive venture, so you will need to make sure upfront that appropriate funding and approvals are in place. To inquire about advertising, please contact David Smith.
