Electronic files

Save your document in high-quality .pdf format, with a resolution of up to 1200x1200. “Submit files”, above, will take you to further instructions and link you to the Copy Centers’ web-based order form. Fill out the form (instructions provided), attach your file, and send it. You will need to either provide an m-number on the form or fax a requisition with two authorized signatures before any work can begin.

  • Delivery location; include building name and room number.
  • Date you need the finished material.
