About UI Copy Center Services
Brochures, posters, letters, memos, reports, theses, course packs, exams, newsletters, forms, and more: the UI Copy Centers on campus print, copy, and finish University-related material quickly and inexpensively. Our services also include helping with copyright clearance for course packs; addressing; and managing the self-service copiers located in most of the University’s libraries.
The Copy Centers are online, so faculty, staff, and students can send files from their computers. The Centers operate on a walk-up basis; many orders can be completed while you wait and most others within 24 hours. In addition, the staff can clean up your scanned copy and combine scanned copy with electronic files. University of Iowa requisitions, m-numbers (standing accounts), UI identification cards, and cash are accepted for payment.
Copy or print?
This depends on the quantity to be printed, the dimensions of the paper sheet, the print quality needed, whether the job involves color printing, and the date it must be finished. The Copy Centers print black toner on 11x17-inch or smaller paper, with 24-hour, or less, turnaround the norm.
Printing Services produces black-and-white and color documents in larger quantities on paper sizes that can exceed 11x17 inches; that may need editorial or design services; that use halftones or need precise registration; and that allow for slightly longer turnaround time.
