Large format printing is available at three campus libraries.


$4.00 per square foot

  • Partial linear feet are rounded up to the next foot for purposes of computing sq/ft
    • Example: 16 inches = 2 feet
  • Same cost for all types of paper
  • You must pay for your print before you pick it up.
  • Once the print job has started, there are no changes; patrons are liable for the cost of that print job plus the cost of any subsequent/altered prints.

Prices for common sizes in inches

  • 18x20 = $16
  • 22x28 = $24
  • 24x36 = $24
  • 36x48 = $48
  • 44x56 = $80

Is there a volume discount?
