Departmental jobs
Forms: Download a Print, Copy, Bookbinding or Design order form or pick one up at PrintFX, Pomerantz Center, D529A.
File/Copy sizes: Be sure your files are sized, proofed and ready for printing. When creating large posters, use larger images with higher resolutions. A 4x6 image from the web (72dpi) will not make a good 18x24 poster.  PrintFX is not responsible for client mistakes. If you want us to change the document size, we can only enlarge or reduce to fit the paper size you choose (Fit To Page).
Design jobs: Complete a Design Order form. For designing assistance, please contact the PrintFX coordinator, Jasper Lin, who will arrange a consultation with our staff graphic designer.
Payment: Budget-to-budget transfer process available. Submit the 'PrintFX Supplies Reimbursement' Form along with the order form at time of drop-off. After the job is completed, PrintFX will submit this form to Accounting and they will transfer the cost of your job from your budget into PrintFX's budget.
Scanning and trimming services: Available in PrintFX's self service area, free of charge on a first come, first serve basis.
High volume print/copy jobs: Please use the FIT Print Shop.
Orientations: Available by appointment only for instructors and their classes. Please submit an Orientation Request Form at least 24 hours in advance.

RGB: Use the Adobe RGB 1998 and RGB color mode for everything….not CMYK! To set up your entire Adobe Suite with the Adobe RGB 1998 colorspace, go to Adobe Bridge>Edit>Creative suite color settings>North American Prepress 2>Apply.
Color accuracy: If printing using inkjet sheets/posters and specialty media, please use our self-service area's color calibrated monitor to softproof your files (instructions provided) using our ICC profiles.
