Frequently Asked Questions 

What happened to Print Services?

The University's Print Services Department closed, effective February 7, 2021. Printing service contracts have been awarded to three local print vendors. Campus departments will now order through these three vendors to augment their choices for printing. The three bids were awarded to: 
  • Amherst Copy 
  • Tiger Press/Copycat 
  • Marcus Printing 
The print ordering process has switched to BuyWays and will be entered as you would for any purchase. After logging into BuyWays, you will be on the Preferred Vendors page. Scroll to the bottom and select the UMA Printing icon under Services. Then click the External Supplier Page link to begin the order process. ** Copy paper ordering has changed. Departments will now order copy paper through W.B. Mason. 
Please visit Printing at UMass Amherst to access the vendors and view more details. Forms and job aids can be downloaded from the "Resource Files" area towards the bottom of this page.
