Do you accept IDB (Interdepartmental Billings) and P-cards?

We accept IDBs on purchases over $250. To process an IDB, we simply need the approval of the budget owner. We can also process P-card transactions in store or securely over the phone during regular business hours.

Can I pick up my custom order at the Bookstore? If the order is large how do I get it to my office?

You can pick up a custom order at the Main Campus Bookstore or the Foothills Campus Health Sciences Bookstore. For large orders, we're more than happy to deliver it to any building on the Main Campus. Please arrange for this when you place your order.

How much time does the Bookstore need to get my order in?

This will depend on the size, breadth and application of the order. Certain items can be completed within 2 weeks, but 3 - 6 weeks is common for standard orders. For fastest turnaround, please have your files ready and in .ai or .eps vector format.

We stock a variety of standard branded products in store in large quantities for last minute requests.

Does the Bookstore charge setup fees and delivery?

There are no setup or delivery fees for standard shipping to either our Main or Foothills Campus. The price we quote you is the all in price with no hidden charges - this gets your department the most swag for your dollar.

We may charge a design fee if the artwork requires adjustment. Please ensure your files are ready to go, in .ai or .eps vector format.

How long has the Bookstore been in the promotional products business?

We've been fostering school spirit with UCalgary branded merchandise since day one, back in 1966. We're the resident experts on promotional products on campus, and we'll make sure your department's products meet the university's standards for brand and quality.
