Printing Services can accommodate almost any size copy job, using fast, digital copiers that scan documents, eliminate most collating errors. All sets will match.
All print and copy jobs must relate to University work.
Exam papers and other sensitive materials should be sent in a sealed envelope and marked as confidential.

Changes on Reprint Jobs
Printing Services will also make requested changes to letterhead, business cards, forms and envelopes before reprinting. We can also make minor changes to brochures, posters, fliers and other pieces to be reprinted.
Binding and Other Services
Multi-page booklets, directories or course materials can be bound with fastback tape, coil, GBC/spiral or velo bindings. Stapling, folding, hole punching, trimming and collating services are offered. We also do laminating in small quantities and foam board mounting.
The Printing Department can accept digital files for output and reproduction. PDFs, MS Publisher, or MS Word files can be emailed as an attachment to Jeff Kearney at email@example.com or Steve Scott at firstname.lastname@example.org. If your file is very large, please call first: 412.396.6391.
For Faster Service
To speed up your print project, be sure to specify the date you want it to be delivered. If your schedule is tight, you can avoid delays by hand delivering the requisition to Printing Services on the first floor of Fisher Hall, rather than using inter-department delivery services. (All projects must be logged in by the receptionist in Fisher Hall—first door to the left.)
You can also save a day by picking up your projects when they are done, rather than waiting for the once-a-day pick-up and delivery service. The Printing Department is open from 8:30 a.m. to 4 :30 p.m. Monday through Friday.
We can often turn around work in two days if needed. So, if you expect to be sending a rush job, advance notice is appreciated. Give us a call and let us know the work is coming and we will try to make time for it.
- When print projects are delayed, it is often because one of these essential steps has been omitted:
- Completing a requisition form, and logging it in with Linda Garofalo, receptionist in Fisher Hall
Completing all information on the form, including:
- An accurate account number
- Number of copies required
- Number of originals submitted
- Delivery date
- Delivery method and location
Complex Printing Projects
Printing Services may suggest that your copy or printing job should be sent through Public Affairs for design or writing improvements. While we may also catch and correct occasional errors, and usually catch and update old logos, we assume all materials are ready to go when submitted for printing.
Outside Printing Firms
Printing Services and Public Affairs can also coordinate 4-color or larger quantity print jobs through outside vendors. We can give you a price and time estimate. We like to work with established vendors with whom the University has a good relationship, so please do not attempt to place work with outside printers on your own.
We will work with you to develop a printed project that meets your budget. Costs are determined by the colors and paper selected, size of the project (number of pages), binding, number of copies, and photos needed. Last-minute text changes to the final printers proof can be very expensive.
