Opening Late Friday

Hi all. Just a quick FYI to let you all know that this Friday, September 26, the lab will be opening at 12:00 noon instead of at 9am. This is due to the Teaching with New Media Symposium being held here in the Weigle Information Commons. If you need to print a poster, we'll start taking names at noon when we open.

Poster Printer Prices

We're changing our poster printing prices from $.35/inch to $.50/inch on the longest side of the poster. This means that a 36"x48" poster will cost $24.00. (The same poster will cost you $100 at Campus Copy or Kinkos.) We continue to accept only PennCash as a means of payment. For more exciting information on printing posters in the lab, be sure to check out our Poster Printer FAQ.
