Large format printer

Booking form | Pricing | Payment

Large-format printing is available in the Digital Design Studio (DDS) on the 3rd floor of Tisch Library. The service is available to all members of the Tufts community.

Our printer is suitable for posters, signage, photographs, and similar projects. It is not suitable for anything that needs large production runs (e.g. a dozen or more flyers, handouts, magazine covers, etc.) or anything double sided (e.g. magazines, brochures, booklets, programs, play bills, etc.).

To print at the DDS, book an appointment below. Please bring your files as a PDF, JPG, or TIFF. Our print management software will optimize space and minimize cost when printing multiple files—you do not need to consolidate multiple files into a single document. If you need assistance with exporting your file to one of these types or need to borrow a USB drive, please arrive 15 minutes early and ask for help at the DDS front desk.

All prints are on 44'' wide paper; patrons are responsible for trimming excess white space after printing (paper cutters are provided by the DDS). As we do not have storage space for posters, patrons are asked to wait in the DDS during their print appointment and take their posters with them when they are finished.
 
If you are more than 5 minutes late, we may be unable to keep your appointment.

Booking form

Coming soon. Until then, prints are available on a walk-in basis from half an hour after the DDS opens until half an hour before the DDS closes.

For departments and classes printing more than 5 posters, please reach out a minimum of one week in advance of your deadline. If possible, we prefer it if you can reach out at the beginning of the semester.
