Lucidpress Templates

Lucidpress is a new, limited access tool that will allow our university partners to easily and quickly create professional design products that reflect our brand’s bold look and feel.

Many templates available

University Marketing has created a variety of templates in Lucidpress, including brochures, posters, flyers, and social media graphics.

Request Access

Lucidpress seats are allocated on a case-by-case basis and are assigned for a specific amount of time to complete a project.

Please fill out this form to inquire about seat availability. Please allow 2-3 business days for a response.

do not distribute lucidpress pdfs online

Documents posted on Texas State University websites must meet accessibility requirements. PDFs created in Lucidpress will not meet these requirements. University Marketing recommends using TXST websites or social media channels to effectively distribute information online.

Check Your Spelling and Grammar

You are responsible for checking the spelling, grammar, and style of your document in Lucidpress. Our Writing Guidelines and Editorial Style Guide can help you achieve a strong TXST voice.

You are also responsible for ensuring that any information you use in your publication — including phone numbers, email addresses, dates, and website links — is accurate.

University Marketing Review Process

A University Marketing designer will review your project before you're allowed to download your files. We'll review for brand compliance and may offer some design suggestions. We won't be reviewing spelling, grammar, or facts, so make sure to look over your writing before you send your project to review.

To initiate the review process, click on the request approval button in the top right corner of the Lucidpress editor. Please allow 5-7 business days for University Marketing to review your publication.
