    • Prints large-scale posters that are used for the Spring symposium and other activities. 
    • This is the poster closest to the CoLab entrance and can be used for any sort of poster. 

LARGER POSTER PRINTER (44x50 inch posters)

  • What It Does
    • Prints EXTREMELY large-scale posters that are often used for external conferences. 
    • This is the printer closest to the ASC.

Co-Lab Printer

  • What it does
    • The Canon printer in the Co-Lab prints color.
    • NOTE: The printer is called the CANON printer if the student is printing from the two computers next to it. It is called the CO-LAB COLOR PRINTER if they are printing from the two computers that face the library lawn. ONLY these four computers print to the color printer.
  • If you want to print on your own paper (or print labels) you can use the Co-Lab Color Printer. Use the BYPASS TRAY. It pulls down from the right side of the color printer. Go into "Printer Properties" then select "Paper" and choose to print to the Bypass Tray. To print on a certain side of the paper, put that side FACE DOWN on the tray.
