How can I get my file printed?

The Innovation Media Center (IMC) of the F.H.G. Library houses a high quality Epson inkjet printer, suitable for printing graphic design files.  We are located on the first floor of the Library (Just down the hall from the Starbucks!) 

  • We require a minimum of 24 hours notice for Epson art print jobs.  Jobs submitted for deadlines shorter than this cannot be guaranteed. 
  • Posters can be printed from rolls of paper 17" wide or on various sized sheets of paper.  
  • There will be no free reprints for errors of formatting or color differentiation.  You are responsible for the formatting and design of your file.  Library Staff cannot be responsible for editing your work or formatting the print. 

  • All printing must be paid for at the time you pick up your poster.  We accept cash, check, credit/debit or Ram Bucks as payment.

  • You can submit your file for printing via the Printing Request Form.

  • Maximum width for Epson art printers is 17" wide. If you have a print wider than 17", or you would like a draft-quality print, please check out our Poster Printing page.

 

What happens after I submit my file to the IMC?

 

  • The IMC does not offer poster printing services on Saturdays. If you submit your print request after 4pm on Friday no one will see your email until noon on Sunday (During Summer sessions there are no poster printing services Saturday or Sunday).
  • Once we receive your file, we check to make sure that the file you submitted matches the size you requested and is in a format which we can print. If we find a problem we may call or email you. Please keep an eye on your email.
  • Within 1 business day we will print your poster and contact you (via email) once your order is complete.
  • You may pick up your poster during the IMC hours of operation once you receive our email.
