How To Set Up A Paid Service

The general process to setup department paid print or plot service is as follows:

  1. Decide on persons to have department-paid print/plot, the time frame, and type of service. Our Print Services Coordinator can assist you with information about the services and locations available and an estimate of the cost involved.
  2. Decide on the specifics of the print/plot to be purchased (e.g. 3 color plots, 2 black and white, etc). If you are interested in higher grade paper choices, you must use the ASC plotter, for instance, poster prints for a high profile conference on glossy paper.
  3. The purchase order amount will be calculated from items 1 & 2. After you have an estimate of the cost, go to the AT Order Form to enter the chartfield information for the account that will pay for the service. Printing services are provided through the Application Support Center.
  4. Once the requisition is setup and in the system, Academic Technology will provide print/plot credits to the individuals and notify the department and faculty member that the setup for the service is complete. Note that the “department paid” line items are mixed in with “individually paid” line items in the billing system. Thus, if the individual goes over the intended amount, they will be billed individually through University Financial Services.
