Print on demand

What it is

Print on demand means you order the exact quantity of printed material you need, receive the finished order quickly, and reorder when you need more. Because you print only what you need, when you need it, you reduce waste and storage needs. The UI Copy Centers can scan, print, bind, and reprint documents on demand for UI faculty, staff, and students.

Send files electronically

You can send files over the web, from your work station directly to our server at any time and from all platforms - Windows, Mac, HP, or Unix, for example. You may need to load the correct printer driver onto your computer. There is no charge for this.

We offer full support

Our IT staff can help you load drivers and correctly set up and send files if necessary. The Copy Center staff are able to scan hard copy, clean up the images, merge the scanned copy with electronic files, and print everything as a single unit if your materials are in multiple formats or media. They can shift images to add space for binding and shift pages to start chapters on the right side.
