Poster Printing

The HP Designjet T2300, located at the Student Computing Services (SCS) desk on Level 2, 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 resolution and dimensions, with at least one side that is less than or equal to 41.6", to account for .2" margins.

To scan, bring the document to be scanned to the SCS desk. The T2300 can scan a document up to 36" wide at up to 600 dpi. There is no length limitation, but it must be a loose, unbound document. 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).
