Educational Programs

Educational Programs

Teachers spend weeks preparing for parent-teacher conferences. Although students and faculty know the school campus by memory, parents only visit the building a couple times a year. A program is a convenient resource to include a map of classrooms, the gymnasium, faculty rooms, and washrooms. Similarly, a schedule of the time and place appointments or presentations take place with specific teachers makes for a seamless evening.

The transition from high school to college can be overwhelming. Universities would be advised to create a program for freshman students visiting campus for new student orientation. Designing a custom program is an opportunity to present students with a map of their new college campus, a detailed schedule of events, an introduction to important faculty members and contact information of new student resources. Remind students of your mission statement and reinforce their place in the college community. Local businesses would be smart to advertise their location, hours, and discounts for students in the orientation program.

Personal and Social

There are few things more intimate than the marriage of two people. Wedding ceremonies can be small or large. Regardless, the ceremony and reception are often planned months in advance. A program informs guests of what to expect and the schedule of events to take place throughout the day or even the weekend. Including this important information in a program means the couple can enjoy their special day without repeatedly answering questions about the address of the reception hall, for example. More importantly, a classy program is a special keepsake for wedding guests and the newlyweds. The wedding program is a way to commemorate the date, location, persons, and unique details of the special day. When you hire Cushing to print programs for a personal event, we work with you to customize the program to match your taste, and provide you with the high quality product that you deserve on your wedding day.

Corporate Events

Corporate Events

Business conferences, trade shows, and corporate seminars take months to plan. Coordinating the availability of keynote speakers, preparing the venue, organizing the sleeping and eating arrangements for participants–oftentimes, a conference center will accommodate hundreds, if not thousands of people! Event programs are crucial for minimizing chaos and relaying important information to the masses. Without proper way finding tools, attendees can get lost in a large conference center. Creating a standard program to be distributed among participants is key to keeping a large number of people on the same schedule, in addition to providing attendees with bios of panel speakers or a map of booths at a tradeshow. Extra pages in a program can even be sold as corporate ad space.


“Thanks again to Cushing’s production team… not only for getting the program done, but also for keeping such an eye out for things like having duplicate text on the cover and body. It re-confirms that I made the right decision moving over to you fine folk.”

-Kevin, Loyola University Chicago Department of Fine and Performing Arts

Arts Theater Film Music

Let Cushing create upscale programs for the opening of a fine art gallery or a more cost effective option to distribute at a high school play. Both programs inform visitors of the date, time, location, and persons involved in coordination of event, that can be saved as a special memory forever. Use a program as a means to express your mission statement or thank friends and family for their support throughout the grueling weeks of rehearsals leading up to opening night.

Have you ever been sitting in a dark theater, wishing you hadn’t finished that soda so quickly? You would prefer not to stumble through the dark, distracting the other theater goers, as you try to make your way to the bathroom. A list of the scenes and the intermission in the program is a helpful tool. If you knew there was only one scene left, you could have waited until intermission! Before the show starts, actor bios and lists of past work, entertains theater goers anxiously waiting for the show to start.
