How Much Lead Time is Required?
Copy Jobs: Minimum lead time of most jobs is 24 hours. Any jobs that require extra time such as typesetting, design or copy clean-up, folding, booklet making, course packets that require binding, or any large documents should be submitted at least one week before due date, especially during peak work periods such as the start or end of the semester.
Print Jobs: If your job needs to be printed (letterhead, business cards, envelopes, pads, large quantities, jobs with colored inks), we recommend ordering two weeks in advance in case we have to order paper or ink. Please call us, we'll be happy to check our supplies and scheduling for you.
It's easy – just fill out a Service Request Form, bring in your copy and pick out your paper. That's it! The form is available online, at the Print Shop or from your office assistant.
You can email your files to us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Include all necessary information – number of originals, quantity requested, color and size of paper, one or two-sided, finishing (folding, stapling, etc.). Be sure to include your account number (a filled out form).
How Do I Ensure Good Quality Prints?
- Good black copy, on white stock is preferred.
One-sided copy is preferable.
Signatures, initials, etc. should be in black ballpoint pen (not felt tip).
Clean copy, no scotch tape over image area and no paste-ups.
Use white out to clean up all dirty areas.
All originals must be the same size.
When reordering a job, send us the originals.
All pages must be in proper order and facing the same direction.
Send a sample of the job when possible.
