Tisch DDS Large-Format Printing (Tisch Digital Design Studio) Capacity: 1
Starting May 13th, 2023 we’ll be switching from in-person appointments for printing to an online fine submission form until the start of the Fall semester. When your poster is ready we’ll let you know, and you can pick it up from the DDS during the library’s open hours. Please note that we have a turnaround time of two business days. For questions, don't hesitate to reach out to us at email@example.com.
About Large-Format Printing at the DDS
Large-format printing is available to all members of the Tufts community, by appointment with the Digital Design Studio (DDS) in Tisch Library. The DDS is an educational space for critically engaging with media, which includes being able to print posters and other student design projects. Our service is oriented towards academic conference posters and other large-format printing projects for students, and our printer is suitable for posters, signage, photographs, and similar projects. Our service may not be the best-suited for other needs.
To learn more about what you can print at the DDS, pricing and payment, and other information, please see the printing page the DDS website.
To request a printing appointment outside of our regularly bookable hours, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we may be able to make arrangements. Such requests made a week or more in advance are more likely to be able to be met.
PRICING UPDATE EFFECTIVE JULY 1, 2022
Effective July 1, 2022, our pricing will be $3.00 per square foot, regardless of paper type. This simpler-to-use system aligns with square foot pricing models used by other large-format printing service providers on campus, and allows us to keep up with rising costs more easily.
You can calculate the cost of poster printing in our new model using our handy calculator.
How much time to book an appointment for
The width of our printer is 44 inches. As long as one side of your poster is 44 inches or less, the other side can be as long as you want.
Each 30 minute appointment block can be used for printing up to 100 inches on the long side of your poster(s) (this is approximately the size of two conference posters side-by-side). Please book additional time if needed.
If you are looking to book an appointment but there are no appointments available, please email us at TischDDS@tufts.edu. To see our staffed services schedule, visit the DDS hours page on the Tisch Library website.
