Cost of services?

Our prices are competitive, with the added bonus of our services being conveniently located on Salisbury University’s campus. For specific costs, please contact Copy Center at copycenter@salibury.edu or ext. 36180.


How long does printing take?

Several factors, including the complexity of the job, determine speed. Allow a minimum of five days for more complex jobs and three days for copies of documents. Rush orders will be expedited as possible.


How do I send a job to the Copy Center?

Electronic files (PDF) are preferred, Word documents are also acceptable. Files may be emailed to copycenter@salisbury.edu and should include quantity, type, color and size of paper, color of ink, hole punching, stapling, folding or binding. A scan of the work order can be sent along with the email or sent via campus mail.


Is a sample of my job helpful?

A sample will ensure accuracy, especially with specific logos, fonts and colors.


Why do the printed colors look different from the colors I see on my screen?

In short, printers and monitors produce colors in different ways. Monitors use the RGB (red, green, blue) color model, which usually supports a wider spectrum of colors. Printers use the CMYK (cyan, magenta, yellow, black) color model, which can reproduce most – but not all – of the colors in the RGB color model. Depending on the equipment used, CMYK generally matches 85–90 percent of the colors in the RGB model.


How is my SU logo or mascot image approved for use in my documents?

If you would like to include the SU logo or an image of Sammy the Sea Gull, an approved logo/mascot image can be emailed to insert into your document. A selection of approved logos/mascot images is available through SU’s Publications Office and online at: www.salisbury.edu/newsevents/pr_pub_guidelines.html


Does the Copy Center design documents?

The Copy Center is part of the Publications Office, where all of SU’s document design is done. The Publications Office can readily assist with your design; contact them to have your project designed and printed to fit University style, branding and purchasing standards.


Will my document fit University style and branding guidelines?

The Publications Office can ensure that all documents will best represent SU and your department, as well as effectively reach the targeted audience. With a work order and planning they can help you fulfill your needs.


On what kinds of paper can documents be printed?

Regular weight,“state” paper is available in white in the following sizes: 8.5” x 11”(letter/flyer), 8.5” x 14” (legal) and 11” x 17” (poster size). Blue, goldenrod, green, pink and yellow, in letter size, are also stocked. Other sizes are available by special order. Cost of the state paper is included in the copy charge.

Can posters be printed?

Yes, posters can be printed in black and white or color; 11” x 17” is our standard poster size. Other sizes and designs can be discussed with our Publications Office. Please make sure a proper SU logo and Title IX statement appear on posters. We can email you them if needed.


Which bindings are offered?

Comb-binding, saddle-stitch and regular stapled binding, all of which are limited by the number of pages in your document. Documents may also be three-hole punched.


How can I be sure the job is secure?

The Copy Center provides a secure drop off and pick up of jobs such as exams with lock boxes located in the hallway outside of room 074. Combinations are needed to access these boxes. If the job is too large for the box, contact Copy Center staff to arrange for secure drop off and pick up.


What about copyright laws?

The copyright law of the United States (Title 127, United States Code) governs the making of photocopies or other reproductions of copyrighted material. Salisbury University reserves the right to refuse to accept a copying order if, in its judgment, fulfillment of the order would involve violation of copyright law. Refer to the Blackwell Library website concerning copyright.
