Printing & Copying in both black only and color are available.
For printing and copying, the costs are based on quantity of impressions per original, per submission. An original is one page in the set of what is being printed or duplicated. For instance, if you have a 5-page document to print, you have 5 originals.
B&W prints and copies are:
8.5 x 11 = .05 one sided copies, black & white
8.5 x 11 = .09 two sided copies
11 x 17 = .10 one sided copies, black and white
11 x 17 = .18 two sided copies
*The cost for B&W prints and copies for off-campus patrons is currently $0.01 more per copy.
Color copy/print prices are based on color coverage and paper size, weight and color.
Multiple colors, sizes and weights of paper are available for purchase in the Print Shop as well. Pricing varies based on availability, weight and finish of the paper being requested.
There are multiple finishing options available. These services are charged by cost of material, plus a $15/hr. labor charge (minimum of $3.75, broken by the quarter-hour as necessary):
- stapling (multiple position)
- padding (glue binding)
- 2 & 3-hole punch
- booklet production (saddle-stitching and face trimming)
- bulk paper folding
- carbonless forms (up to 4-part)
Spiral Comb Binding and Plastic EZCoil Binding are available in multiple sizes of combs and coils. Pricing varies based on the size of the document to be bound (number of sheets in booklet), plus labor.
Wide-format poster printing is also available in the Print Shop, up to 42" wide. Costs are calculated by poster dimensions. The cost is $1.00 per lineal inch for full color, .67 per lineal inch for color text only and .42 per lineal inch black and white. This equates to approximately $48 for a 36"x48" poster in full color and $20.16 per black and white poster 36 x 48".

ORDER TURNAROUND TIMES
Please note that minimum turnaround times have automatically been built in to every order as a goal of ours, it is not a guaranteed date that you will receive your order. Significant delays may be experienced during times of heavy usage by our customers, every order is important to us. Please know that all printing orders are processed in the order which they are received.
TRACK YOUR PRINT ORDERS
You may track your orders through the production process from beginning to end. While logged into your account, click on "My Orders", find the order that you are interested in and look at the last column "Status". If your order status is "Submitted, it means that we have not yet put it into production.
EMBED YOUR FONTS
When composing documents be sure to embed the fonts into the document. In MS Word click on tools, options, save tab, put a check in the box labeled "embed true type fonts". In Publisher click on tools, commercial printing tools, fonts, place a check mark in the box labeled "embed true type fonts"; no other boxes should be checked in this window.
Please note that none of the staff at the Print Shop performs layout and design work, unless previously requested, therefore we are unfamiliar with many of the functions within these or many other programs that you may use to compose documents, but I would venture to say that any composition program has a way to embed the fonts.
ATTENTION PUBLISHER USERS
Publisher files will not convert to PDF during the upload process; instead the system will attach the original Publisher file. Please ensure that the fonts are embedded and that you convert to a pdf file prior to submitting.
FILE ATTACHEMENT/PDF CONVERSIONS
During the order process, when you attach your file, it will automatically be converted into a PDF. You will then have the opportunity to proof the PDF, ensuring that everything is correct before proceeding with the next step. Please note that if you decline the PDF, your original file will be uploaded with the print order. Publisher is an exception to this rule. We will not print unless document is provided as a pdf.
Please note that any scanned items inserted into your publications, in most cases, will not reproduce in a high quality manner. You must be scanning at a minimum of 300 dpi in order to provide print quality. Images downloaded from the internet are typically 72 dpi and will not reproduce well.
