Best Practices:

  • Always keep 2 copies of your file: 1 copy should be your master file that includes editable layers that you can always return to to make changes. 1 copy should be your print file, which has all layers flattened to reduce the size of the file sent to the printer, allowing it to print faster. 
  • Recommended file formats: JPEG, PDF, PNG
  • Minimum page setup size is 12"x12" 
  • Please do not print directly from a USB drive or web browser, drag your file to the desktop before opening it in any program for printing. 
  • Please plan ahead when you have a print assignment due. The best way to reduce anxiety when making a large print is to not print at the last minute, leaving no time for error should one arise.
