The print staff makes tangible the concepts developed by the design team and clients across campus. They operate a full range of copiers, presses, and bindery equipment to produce a wide range of materials from black and white to multi-color on a variety of papers. In addition to the production of flyers, invitations, handbooks, newsletters, brochures, tab dividers, posters, and NCR forms, the shop produces all stationery needs for the campus community, including letterhead, envelopes, and business cards.
Printing services are generally recharged against allocations provided in state budgets, and reports are sent to Accounts Payable on a monthly basis. Projects funded with non-state resources are invoiced accordingly. The staff makes every effort to put a given job on the most cost effective machine for that publication, considering deadlines as well as the quantity, size, and paper. Recharges are for supplies and materials only. (Labor and overhead are not included in recharge costs.)
Copy work is most appropriate for short runs (under 2000 total impressions) or eleventh hour projects (“rush jobs”) on standard size papers (letter, legal, and tabloid). The center is well equipped with a high speed Canon ImageRunner 110 digital copier, a Canon 600 copier, a Xerox Docucolor250, and a 24” wide format printer. Size capability is 11x17 for black and white, 11x17 in color with full bleeds, and 24” wide by any length on the wide format printer.
Offset printing is the method used for work requiring color ink, for long runs (whether black or color), non-standard sizes, and special stocks, such as textured paper, envelopes, etc. The shop’s workhorse is a two-color Heidelberg QM46, accompanied by a two-color Multigraph 1250 with envelope feeder, and a one-color AB Dick 360.
Finishing operations include cutting, folding, stapling, padding, collating, trimming, perfing, scoring, three-hole drilling, laminating, or booklet making by wire stitch, coil or plastic spiral. Posters up to 2’ x 3’ can be mounted on foam core.
Completed projects are packaged and delivered to the ordering department by our student assistants, or they can be boxed for shipment to a mail house as designated on the work request form. For tracking purposes, you will be asked to sign a receipt slip.
Projects that require security (such as exams) are packaged and delivered under special procedures. Check the "confidential" box on the Printing Work Request form. Call Print Services at x2646 for further information.
