Confidentiality and Security
We understand the importance of security and confidentiality for our client's projects. Our entire staff is trained to understand that customer confidentiality is crucial. As an in-house printer, we are able to offer a high level of security by keeping your projects on-campus, handled solely by university staff.
We also offer a high level of security for the reproduction of exams. Although we employ students as delivery persons, they are not allowed to see or handle any exams. We offer 24-hour service on exams.
Billing is easy. Payment through the university electronic, automatic billing system is the preferred method. All we need is your department's Banner account number (charge number) when you place your order. We also accept checks or cash.
Course Packet Experience
With our longstanding experience in the preparation and fulfillment of academic course packet materials, we can produce your course packets or laboratory manual packets and keep them on file for electronic on-demand printing, future revisions and distribution. Our course packet program provides digital storage, fast turnaround production and bookstore delivery. Contact customer service at [email protected] for assistance with course packet production and workflow and copyright permission requests for books and journals, etc.
Save Time and Money
Office copiers and printers are convenient and economical for small copy jobs. However, they can cost you money on larger jobs. When you have large projects involving long runs that can tie up personnel and equipment, we can save you time and money by combining several operations on our high-speed printers. Labor-intensive handwork can be eliminated, especially collating, stapling and binding. In addition, you can extend the life of your office copier and consumables by using our equipment for high-volume jobs.
Free Pick-up and Delivery when available
University Printing Services offers free pick-up and delivery most of the time, and a quick turnaround on your copy jobs. Please call 994-5708 to arrange for pick-up or stop by and discuss your print job in person.
Sometimes we will not be able to deliver due to our staffing shortage, but you'll get the chance to come down to the basement of Culbertson and say, "Hello!"
