Sept. 1, 2013 – We now have a poster plotter to which you can print presentations, maps, blueprints, and more oversized print jobs. Prints cost 3¢/square inch (see right column for sample prices). You can print on 24" or 36" wide paper up to 72" in length.
The plotter uses the same Pharos system as our other printers; simply select the Newman Plotter from the list of printers on any of our public computers. Swipe your Hokie Passport at the Newman Plotter Release Station on the second floor, select the correct print job from the list, then wait for your printout to complete. (24" paper is the default; if you need 36" paper, ask for help at the Circulation Desk.)
Because there are no refunds for misprinted jobs, we strongly recommend printing only PDF documents (convert any other format to PDF). The Acrobat print window will display exactly how your output will fit on the selected page size and PDFs more accurately show how colors will appear on the paper.
3¢/sq. inch with 24" and 36" wide paper available (print out up to 72" in length).
