Since we print in color, we don’t get a lot of call to print on colored papers, and so only carry a limited supply of these brightly colored papers. Come in to the Graphics Center, and we will be happy to show you what we currently have in stock. Most of the colored paper and card stocks are 8.5″ x 11″, but we do have a few 11″ x 17″ colored papers as well.
All of our sticker paper is 8.5″ x 11″ paper; be sure to remember there is a .25″ white border on all 4 sides that can’t be printed on. (see borderless printing if this doesn’t make sense.)
The available sizes for magnet paper are 8.5″ x 11″ and 12″ by 18″; be sure to remember there is a .25″ white border on all 4 sides that can’t be printed on. (see borderless printing if this doesn’t make sense.)
Clear plastic, 8.5″ x 11″ only.
Turn Around Times for Color Printing
Printing is done on a first-come first served basis. We will print small jobs while you wait if that is possible, but try to allow a business day in the event that there are many and/or large jobs ahead of yours, the machine is being serviced, or other unforeseeable circumstances. Our printer is rated at 70 sheets per minute for single-sided paper, so we can accommodate large jobs, please contact us for a time estimate for your particular job.
You can supply us with PDF’s or photo files such as .jpg.
From Microsoft applications, go to file menu, choose “Save as” and on the drop down menu for file format, choose pdf., as in the video below.
