The Digital Print Center

Services:
The Digital Print Center will provide archival quality prints to undergraduate and graduate art students. Art students currently enrolled in a class where large format printing is required have the privilege to collaborate with designated printmaking faculty and or the technician in the printing of archival works in the Digital Print Center. The Digital Print Center will make every effort to work in collaboration with the student artist and complete the print job while the artist is present. The Digital Print Center has the right to refuse any request including excessive multiple prints. (See pricing guidelines below)

Financial Responsibility:
All prints, including test prints, are the financial responsibility of the artist. All charges must be prepaid before prints are made. Artists will see a chart listing charges and will be given a receipt of these charges once payment is received and prior to printing.

Security regarding files received for printing:


The Digital Print Center will delete ALL files relating to a print request after a printing job is completed. Labeled CD’s-R, DVD’s-R or USB 2 thumb drives or external hard drives (firewire or USB) is the way to bring us files for printing.

It is the responsibility of the artist to properly label all materials left in the Digital Print Center with the artists name and contact information.

It is the responsibility of the artist to create a back up of all files that may be left for printing at the Digital Print Center.

The Digital Print Center will make every effort to work in collaboration with the artist and complete the print job while the artist is present. If the prints must be left, the 3-day limit applies. It is the responsibility of the artist to pick up prints within 3 days of the completion date. The Digital Print Center cannot serve as a storage facility for prints. The condition of the prints not collected within three days of the completion date cannot be guaranteed. Prints that are not picked up or are refused will belong to the Digital Print Center and we will be able to use it for any purpose.

It is the responsibility of the artist to provide the appropriate materials to safely transport the completed prints away from the Digital Print Center (portfolio, tube, wrapping tissue, glassine, etc.)

Content of Submitted Files:

The mission of the Digital Print Center is to provide, to its full capabilities, archival digital printing support for the students of the University of Massachusetts Amherst, however, if in this process the content of the images or data is deemed inappropriate or is requested for purposes other than the production of art; the service requested may be denied. The Digital Print Center or the Department of Art, Architecture and Art History will not censor or prevent any credible works of art from being created.

Contact:
