The Creative Services team includes the following individuals:

Tom Slate
Print Shop Manager
(217) 206-6042

I’ve been in printing for 30 years now, I guess you can call me a dinosaur of printing. I started in high school for the school newspaper, I’ve pretty much been in every avenue of printing, from setting type for the old letter presses, taking photos, stripping negatives, working in darkrooms, printing sales, graphic equipment sales, and still from time to time I troubleshoot for some of the younger printers that need some assistance from the dinosaur. Not to forget I’ve been around a press or two. For now I’m working on making the print shop greener, if not totally green. Its a long road but I do see light at the end of the tunnel. When I do find time for myself I enjoy fishing, travel, Texas holdem poker, and helping my wife landscaping our yard.

Patty Sullivan

Patty holds a BS in journalism from the U of I Urbana-Champaign. She joined the Campus Services department in 1990 as a typesetter when she decided she didn’t want to be a newspaper reporter after all. She’s had a hand in creating every kind of printed project on campus, from the smallest business card to the PAC entry mural.
