Preprinted Giveaways
AUPresses is making available some preprinted collateral pieces for our members, including #ReadUP bookmarks, and laptop stickers featuring the University Press Week logomark. 

A request form for these will be available when the bookmarks have arrived in office (by mid-October). In the meantime, if you need a handful of laptop stickers for early events, please contact This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it . If you need bookmarks, the files are available in Design Assets for local printing.

Social Media Asset
Add a "twibbon" of the message Read. Think. Act. to your social media profiles! Check it out and add here >


We use the hashtag #ReadUP to communicate the core of our mission: valuable scholarship and writing on any topic you can imagine. (It's pronounced "Read up" to encompass the entire AUPresses community‚ not just U.P.'s!) Read for tips on how you can use this during UP Week and to amplify the value of your work year-round. (During UP Week, we also may use the hashtag #upweek or #ReadThinkAct, and you are welcome to, as well—these can just get cluttered!)

Creating Videos

Question prompts and filming tips for creating quick video clips—use them on your own social media and/or send to Ingram for their annual University Press Week montage! Videos are due to Ingram by Friday, October 11, but use the prompts and guidance to make videos throughout the fall.
