Ways to facilitate a faster turn-around:

  • Plan Ahead – communication with Print Shop staff as far in advance as possible about upcoming jobs, particularly if that job will require special paper stock.
  • Use Print Shop Pro – this tracks jobs and asks all the necessary questions up front, which will expedite the process. 
  • Be Responsive - the time spent waiting for a response for clarification or proof approval can delay the turn-around time.
  • Format Documents Appropriately – PDF is the best way to submit. (IE: when a wide-format poster is submitted for 36x48”, it should be formatted to that size for the best result).
  • Call with Questions – Print Shop staff are always available to answer questions

Student Projects:

Students should take advantage of the Print Shop especially if they are in need of a large printed job. For example, things like the Business Policy Project, students can bring that to the Printshop to get projects printed to save time and money.
