SoA Print

School of Art Print Shop

Prices

As a non-for-profit print shop, we keep our prices as low as possible.

For payment, we accept cash, check, Mason Money, MasterCard ($10 minimum) and Visa ($10 Minimum).*
Payment must be made up front (except for scans.)

*Cash and check currently not accepted due to Covid-19. $10 minimum no longer required during this time as well.

We offer a variety of goods and services, including:

Inkjet Printing

Also known as pigment or giclée printing, our inkjet printers print with archival pigment-based inks on acid-free paper, producing museum-grade prints that will not fade or yellow on their own and last a lifetime. Photographs, fine art reproductions, and illustrative pieces come out wonderfully on these prints. We can print large images on our 44″ Canon printer.

Each print has a 1″ margin all around that cannot be printed on (2″ from either dimension).

Sheets

Our pre-cut sheets need a 1 inch white margin all around, so the largest image size we can accept is 2 inches shorter than the sheet on both dimensions. This white margin does not need to be included in the file.

Laser Printing

Our color-matched laser prints offer vibrant color at high speed and low cost, making them an excellent choice for posters, cards, proofs, books, and magazines. We generate laser prints up to 12″x18″ on plain (normal printer), coated (glossy) and uncoated (copy/matte) paper stocks.

For double-sided printing each side will be charged as a separate print.

Each paper size has a 1/4″ margin all around that cannot be printed on (1/2″ from either dimension).

Copy Finish

The “matte” option for our laser papers. The paper itself isn’t shiny, but any part of the image that was printed will be due to the toner.

Bringing Your Own Paper

You can bring your own paper for a 20% discount. We will need both the weight (lb) and grammage (gsm or g/m2) of the paper when you order. The maximum weight we can print on is 110 lbs and the maximum grammage is 300 lb. The largest we can print is 12″x18″. If it is a transparency, the paper needs to be treated for a Copier to ensure it won’t melt in our machines. If it is sticker paper, the paper cannot be pre-cut into smaller sections, such as labels.

Flatbed Scans

Artwork can be professionally scanned at our facility to generate digital images for the web, digital archiving, and printing. Our 12″ x 17″ flatbed scanner is ideal for making high-resolution reproductions or enlargements of artwork of nearly any size. Larger prints may take multiple scans, but the final image will look seamless.

Scans

We charge by the number of scans it takes to capture the image if the image needs to be scanned in sections. Final price is determined after the service is done, but we are happy to give you our best guess beforehand.
