Memphis College of Art has a print lab equipped with a number of professional-quality output devices. Devices are grouped into two levels of acccess: those that all students can use, and those for which prints must be requested through multiple paths.
First, the following devices are available for all students to use:
- 2 Epson Stylus Pro 4900 printers
- 4 Epson Stylus Pro 4880 printers
These printers are accessible to all students, 24/7, at no cost. Students are required to supply their own paper; we recommend Epson-brand paper for the highest quality prints, and easiest setup of print jobs. These printers may never be used with plain paper, handmade paper, canvas, or fabrics; these types of paper will damage the printers, and are therefore forbidden.
If you are unfamiliar with using these printers, a print lab workstudy is available during certain times of the week to assist with printing. The schedule for the print lab workstudy will be made available outside the print lab door.
In addition to the previous printers, students can request large-format prints up to 44-inches wide from the IT Department Helpdesk. Prints are completed on an Epson Stylus Pro 9800 large-format printer, and are charged at a cost of $12.83 per linear foot printed at 44 inches wide.
