Printing Services uses higher quality paper for color printing than Multi-Function Devices (MFDs) and laser printers use. It is heavier (28 lb. instead of normal 20 lb. bond) and has a smoother finish, which makes the colors brighter.

Prices for using colored paper, heavier paper, and premium paper are slightly higher. A 15% surcharge is added to personal printing and non-profit organizations' printing done at Calvin Printing Services.

Supplies

Staples and toner are provided to on-campus Multi-function Device printers (MFD) and laser printers. As well as three types of paper:

  • 8.5 x 11, white, 20# (regular and 3-hole punched)
  • 8.5 x 14, white, 20#
  • 11 x 17, white, 20#

Printing services charges departments monthly for the following devices:

  • MFD $50.00 B&W, $75.00 Color
  • Laser $25.00 B&W, $35.00 Color
  • Local $10.00 B&W, $12.50 Color
