Large FORMAT Printing
The lab includes a large format printer that can be used to print posters, banners, and blueprints. Poster printing costs $0.20 (black & white) and $0.40 (color) per inch of the 36″ wide roll that is used (see picture to the right for clarification). Large format designs can be printed in various formats, but it is recommended that you save your document as a PDF to guarantee the best experience. Please use a minimum of 150 pixels per inch to avoid a pixelated appearance.
To request a large format print job:
Email email@example.com with a subject line of “Large Format”.
In the email please attach a PDF version of your document.
Indicate the final print size you would like the document to be. Please note that one side of the document must be smaller than 36″ for us to print it.
Include any other relevant information (i.e., number of copies).
A staff member will review your file and email you within 3 days of your initial request to let you know the costs. Once you approve the costs staff will place your file in our large format printing queue. We may have other jobs already in the print queue so please be patient.
There are coin-operated copy machines on the upper and main levels of the library. Photo copies are $0.10/page for black and white and $0.50/page for color copying.
Each copy machine has the ability to scan to a file (formats available: jpg, tif, pdf). Files can be saved at the machine to a USB drive or emailed to an account. There is no charge for using the scanner.
We offer free faxing on the main level near the front checkout desk. We do not offer international faxing.
Plymouth District Library is transforming The Lab into a space for makers, crafters, and other people looking to expand their skills or create something special.
The Lab is open to all during designated hours.
