Printing

Printing is on first-come, first-served. Most printing jobs are completed within 24 hours, depending on traffic. The ink is dry to the touch as it comes out of the printer but the paper still has solvents in it. We recommend that you allow the print to dry for a few minutes before rolling the image. Poly paper in particular, needs extra time to dry. When your printing is completed, we will contact you either by email or a phone call.

Scanning

Our Book Scan Station is located at the Multimedia Center. The scanner can scan images up to 12" by 17". Use the settings: PDF; color; photo quality and save the scanned image to your USB drive, or your Andrews University email account. There is no charge for scanning.
