The Imaging Center (IC) provides a variety of print services to the CCS community. It is located on the 6th floor of the Taubman Center in room 631.
The IC’s regular hours are Monday – Thursday from 8am to 10pm and Friday from 8am to 3pm. There are extended weekend hours during midterms and finals, which are posted on Blackboard and on the CCS information monitors.
The Imaging Center has two Canon production laser printers, which include basic copying & scanning services, two Epson wide-format printers, and two Epson sheet-feed inkjet printers. In addition, the IC also offers draft quality wide-format printing on an Epson plotter printer. On the Canon laser printer, the IC can print up to 13” x 19” and use 110 lb. card stock. The Imaging Center also provides various plastic coil and wire binding services. Students can provide their own laser paper to print at a low-cost rate; they must bring the paper in its original packaging so that the IC has all of the accurate information on paper type.
Students must bring files to the IC that are print-ready and on a flash drive. The Imaging Center will accept files from staff and faculty through fillable online forms that can be found on the “Imaging Center” link within the “Campus Offices” page on the CCS Blackboard website. Services are available at a discounted price for staff and faculty. If color prints or posters are being charged to a department, an 8-digit budget code number is required in order for the job to be processed. The appropriate account number can be obtained from your Department Administrator.
When using the inkjet printers, we strongly encourage students to create test strips or hard proofs prior to submitting their final print job. These test strips are free. Students can also use a Soft Proofing station located in the 24-hour lab to preview their print job with our laser and inkjet color profiles on a calibrated monitor.
For faculty teaching a sponsored project course, or any other course that will require large-scale printing, please contact the Imaging Center within the first few weeks of the semester with information on what type and how much printing is needed to complete the project and any major due dates. In order to set up a student print budget, the Imaging Center will need a current class roster.
Black and white copying is available for faculty (self-serve) in the adjunct faculty office space located on the 2nd floor of the Kresge-Ford building, room C205.
