Copying and Digital Printing

If you have a copy job of 35 impressions or more, the university asks that you utilize Print Services rather than using your department's copier. It saves time and money, and we can offer you much more. Our high-speed B&W copier and digital color printer feature:

  • B&W High-Speed Copying
  • Full Color Digital Printing
  • Collating
  • Stapling
  • Saddle-Stitch Binding
  • Square-fold Binding
  • Three-Hole Drilling
  • Finish Trimming
  • High Quality Scanning
  • Clear Spot/Varnish Toner

Paper is included in the cost of the copies. Pre-ordered sizes range from 8.5" x 11" to 13" x 19" and weights range from 20lb. text to 110lb cover. Contact us if you require a custom option. Some services may be billable. For a price quote, call Print Services at 978-665-3394 or email

Job Submission Guidelines

  1. For jobs that are ready to copy, PDF files are preferred. Email your PDF files to One attachment per email, please. Include instructions in the body of your email such as: quantity, paper choice, finishing (1 or 2 sided, staple, 3-hole drill, or booklet format), contact info, department name, projected due date, and FOAPAL (if applicable). You do not need a copy order form unless you are scanning hardcopy to us via the Print Services button on your departmental copier or submitting hard copy through campus mail. Please indicate if the printing is for a GCE course.
  2. You may be asked to approve a proof of your copy or printout, depending on the quantity or complexity of your request.
  3. Submitted jobs must meet university and copyright guidelines (PDF).
  4. If you need help designing your project, we offer design services.
  5. When submitting hardcopy, please fill out a Copy Request Form and include it with your original job. Scan and email the job to by using any Ricoh multifunction device on campus, or you can send it by inter-campus mail. Please avoid staples or paperclips for problem-free processing.

Turn-Around Time

  1. Most "ready-to-copy" jobs are completed within 24 hours and can be delivered by Materials Management, to your department's office. If you’d prefer to pick-up your job, please notify us when you place your order.
  2. Requests with high quantities (more than 1,000 total copies), and/or bindery work (folding, cutting, hand stapling, hand collating, binding, mailing, etc.) are likely to take longer.
