Printing

Reproduction by any method other than copier is not done by Lander Printing Services. Such work is out-sourced to those who are equipped to handle it. Examples include letterheads, B/C, envelopes, jobs with very heavy solids or metallic colors, very heavy papers, embossing, die-cutting, perforating, numbering, very long runs, et al. We can recommend printers or you can make use of someone of your own choice. NOT while-you-wait.

Scanning

We can scan in B&W or color up to size 11x17”. The scanned files will be sent to one of our workstations and from there can be forwarded to your email (if the file is not too large) or saved to disk or thumb drive. This usually can NOT be done while-you-wait. The cost is .01/pg. 

Lamination

We can laminate items up to 22” wide x any length x up to index-card thickness. Please call ahead to have us warm up the laminator; this takes ½ hour. This is a heat process so any wax-based toner will soften and run. Students: leave your ID with us as collateral until item is paid for. We can take cash or checks. 

This usually cannot be done while-you-wait. The cost is .75/running ft.

Binding

We can punch and bind books up to 1.5” thick with GBC binding and it can usually be done while-you-wait. We stock a variety of sizes and colors of combs but you may provide your own. We recommend the use of thicker paper for F & B covers. 

This binding’s advantage is that additional pages can easily be added or subtracted. The cost ranges from $1 upwards depending on book thickness. Other types of binding are available outsourced; please inquire for prices and options.

Stapling

We can staple up to 60 sheets of 20# bond or about a 1/4” stack of paper. While-you-wait is usually OK. The charge is .03/staple.

Hole-Drilling

We can punch holes in paper in a variety of positions. Usually while-you-wait. We ask that you check that there are no staples or paper clips in the area to be punched as these will damage our machine. Paper only, please: no plastic, wood or metal. The charge is .004/sheet drilled.

Padding

We are able to glue stacks of paper together to form pads. These are useful for scratch pads or any paper item that is to be carried around with you for tear-off purposes. NOT while-you-wait as the glue needs time to dry. We recommend pads of no more than ¼ inch or 50 sheets as that is a comfortable thickness. We include chipboard backing in the price. Our price pays for the padding press plus consumables such as brushes, glue, cutting and chipboard backing. Please check items that you bring to us for padding that they don’t include confidential information such as SS #s. The charge is .20/pad of 50 sheets.

Namebadges

All requests for namebadges should be submitted on a standard purchasing requisition to copyservices@lander.edu. Please note that every badge has the Lander logo and “Lander University” at the bottom; you will have 3 lines for your name, title and department. All information should be submitted in a word document, NOT hand-written. Price: $5.08 ea

Paper

Our prices include basic 20/50# paper in white or pastel colors. We have other papers to choose from at cost. We ask that you NOT request paper from us that you will be using in your office copiers. You should order that yourself. We will make an exception for an emergency or for sizes/colors that are impractical for you to order. While-you-wait is OK.

Cutting

We can cut paper up to 24” long down to any size. Paper only, please: No plastic, wood, metal. Please check that there are no staples or paper clips in the area to be cut. Examples: cut 8.5 x 14 down to 8.5 x 11. Cut paper to fit desktop dispensers. Sticky notes to smaller size. Covers from textbooks so they can be punched for 3-hole binder. While-you-wait is usually OK. The price is .10/cut.

Folding

We can fold paper to several configurations. NO staples, paperclips, wrinkled or curled paper. Single sheets only, please: Our machine will not fold sets of materials. The price is $.015/fold.

Flatbed/hand truck – no charge. Please do NOT keep overnight.

Graphic Design Services

We offer advice and expertise on designing your projects. Layout guidelines may vary depending on the individual project. If you are submitting your own ready-to-print project, any major corrections after a proof is provided requires the original designer to make the corrections and resubmit. Some projects will require all original files to be submitted along with PDF files to allow us to make minor corrections such as spacing and margins. Major projects will require a meeting with the designer and printer to go over all specifications in order to meet production deadlines.

Specialty Items

If it can be printed on, we can have it done. Items such as pencils, pens, T-shirts, etc. cannot be produced by LPS but are outsourced to specialty firms. All requests for these items should be accompanied by a Purchase Requisition. NOT while-you-wait.
