Publication & Print Services

We can handle files from both PC and Mac computers. Send us your files via e-mailftp, flash drive, or CD. Let us know your deadline, and we guarantee you’ll have your job in time. When your job is finished, we’ll contact you to pick up your finished materials, or let us deliver!

Graphic Design and Layout
We can help design your project from scratch, or start a layout from your files and photos. We design multi-page documents and reports, newsletters, brochures, invitations, report covers, posters, and more. We work with a variety of software, and will use the program that best suits the job. Costs are $30/hour for initial design and layout, $25/hour for edits.

Large-Format Posters
We can produce posters for conferences, display panels, and laboratory signage. We can print from Windows-based programs and from Macs. We can print posters up to 40" in one dimension and of unlimited length in the other. Please give us at least 24 hours to get you the final product (although a 1-2 -day lead time is preferred. It is also recommended that you email Susan Stein at sstein@vims.edu several days before you need your poster to ensure that it will get printed within your deadline. ). Cost is $7/running foot. Also consider having us print 11” x 17” reduced color copies of your poster for use as hand-outs to colleagues during your conference poster session. 

Large-Format Lamination
Our large-format laminator allows us to laminate any printed item up to 40" wide (unlimited length). The laminate is thin—only 3 mil—so you can laminate a poster and still easily roll it up in a carrying tube. Cost is $6/running foot.

Pouch Lamination
We can also laminate smaller, letter, legal, and tabloid size documents. There are 3 different thicknesses of laminate available.

Business Cards
Give us the information that you would like to appear on your business card and we will do the rest. The cost for a box of 250 is $27.50; the cost for a box of 500 is $32.00.  We can also do smaller runs of 50, and 100.

Report Binding
We can also bind printed materials—anything from a 10- to a 500-page manuscript. We offer a variety of binding options (e.g., strip, spiral, saddle-stitched). We'll put a clear cover on it, and away you go. Priced by the job (average cost is $1/book, plus a nominal cost for labor).
