Printing

The T2300 prints on semigloss paper, up to 42" wide. To print, bring your file to the SCS desk as a JPEG or TIFF on a flash drive. The image should be set to your desired dimensions, with at least one side that is less than or equal to 41.6", to account for .2" margins. At the SCS desk, staff will verify the size of your print and give you a slip with its cost. After paying at the Reserve desk and bringing your receipt back to the SCS desk, your document will be printed.

You can save a scanned document to your flash drive as a TIFF, JPEG, or PDF file. Alternatively, you can print the scanned document for the cost of printing (the scanning charge will be waived).
