Hostetter Business Services Building

About Us


Our History

We have been a part of the Penn State community since the 1930s. First known as Printing Services, we were housed in a three-story building on the west side of campus until December 1975, when we moved to our current location in Hostetter Building. Hostetter was constructed especially for us.

We continued to expand our services and facilities over the years, adding a mailing and addressing wing in the mid-1980s and periodically updating our equipment. We were the first printer in the State College area to offer desktop publishing and the first to open a film and image center. We remain deeply committed to providing our customers with the most cutting-edge resources available.

We enjoy a special relationship with each one of our customers. They know they can count on us for innovative solutions and exceptional service—and that we wholeheartedly support the entire University community. We work closely with the Department of University Publications to ensure that all University communications—both print and electronic—present a consistent image. In addition, we print diplomas and commencement bulletins—and we are the primary provider of official University stationery.

We are proud to be Penn Staters—and we look forward to serving the University community for many years to come.
