PRINT SERVICES FOR STUDENTS

I want Laser Prints

More about Laser Prints

Print Ready: The Imaging Center does not alter your file in any way. All files must come in ready for print. The IC always prints ‘actual size’.

File Type: high resolution .jpg OR flattened PDF file (combine multiple like-sized files into a single PDF file).

Color Space: The IC works in both an Adobe RGB & U.S. Web Coated CMYK (SWOP) v.2 color space. We do not work in any other color profile and will convert your profile as necessary.

Turnaround Times: Your print job will be completed in the order it was received. The standard turnaround time for the laser printers is 1 full business day. There are no “Rush” options for laser print jobs. Please be aware that during midterms and finals, turnaround times can increase up to 2-3 business days. 

There is not a free “proof” before running your print job. If you are running a large job and want to see a proof, turn in a print submission for only one or two pages of your document. This will be completed within 24-hours. Once you are satisfied and “approve” your print, you may then turn in the final order for the full amount of pages & copies that you want. 

You will be notified via your CCS email when your job has been completed.

More Information: For further information on file set up and Imaging Center policies and procedures, please review The Imaging Center Main Guide

I want Riso Prints

More About Riso Prints

What is a Risograph: A Risograph is a digital stencil duplicator designed for high-volume reproduction of designs. As a printing method, a risograph printer sits somewhere between screen printing and offset lithography. It uses brightly colored inks, or “spot colors” allowing a wide range of bright and beautiful colors. A Risograph is a cost-effective self-publishing tool and is ideal for posters, graphic prints, comics, zines, or art books. 

If you are looking for photographic quality reproduction, we recommend using the Imaging Center’s laser or inkjet printing services instead.

Print Ready: The Imaging Center does not alter your file in any way. All files must come in ready for print. The IC always prints ‘actual size’. Please make sure your print is no larger than 10”x16” to allow for registration and crop marks. (We will add these for you.) 

File Type: PDF (multi-page PDF file separated by color – remember, the Riso only can print one color at a time). 

Naming Convention (required): Name_FileName_Risocolors-in-Print-Order.pdf Example: MichellePeck_CatonRug_Red-Blue-Yellow-Black.pdf

Breakdown: Name = Michelle Peck | File = Cat on Rug | Color 1: Red; Color 2: Blue; Color 3: Yellow; Color 4: Black

Your flattened PDF file should consist of 2-5 pages:

  • Page 1: Rendered Image (color composite) of your final piece
  • Page 2: Color 1 in Black & White / Grayscale
  • Page 3: Color 2 in Black & White / Grayscale
  • Page 4: Color 3 in Black & White / Grayscale
  • Page 5: Color 4 in Black & White / Grayscale

Colors Available: The Imaging Center allows up to 4 colors per Riso print. We have 12 colors available: Blue, Federal Blue, Bright Red, Yellow Black, Burgundy, Mint, Teal, Green, Fluorescent Pink, Sunflower & Fluorescent Orange. Color swatches are available here: Risograph Downloads

Resolution: 300 d.p.i. or higher. 600 d.p.i. is recommended.

Turnaround Times: Your print job will be completed in the order it was received. The standard turnaround time for the risograph printer is 5-7 full business days depending on the number of colors. There are no “Rush” options for laser print jobs. Please allow an additional 48 hours (2 business days) for each color beyond two, as copies need to cure, or dry between runs.

Color Alignment: Riso printing is never perfect, and is registered (registration = color alignment) by hand. For a “perfect” print, we recommend using the inkjet printer or the laser service.

Multi-page Project?
If you have a document with multiple pages, you have two options.

  • Submit a different form for each page. This is recommended for a single-sided job (like a booklet or calendar that only has single pages)
  • Make an appointment with an IC staff member to review your job before submitting it. Especially if you have a book or a double-paged project you’d like to print.

Disclaimer: Risograph printing is an imperfect process. The IC will not reprint for inherent printing imperfections. Smudges, roller marks, and misregistration are a part of the nature of Riso printing. The IC takes all the necessary measures to minimize ink transfers and misregistration. We suggest that you take these design precautions into consideration. Remember though, no Riso print is ever perfect (and that is what makes Riso printing so awesome!).
