Graphics and Presentations Design and Presentations Lab do not operate for profit. Any charges incurred for services are priced at our cost. However, we do charge for production of electronic output (scanning, pdf creation, optical media duplication, etc), mostly as an encentive for you to learn and use the equipment provided yourself.
We do everything we can to keep your costs to a minimum. Try us first, you'll find that we are a great deal cheaper for a number of our services than other options on campus. Please see our price list for material rates
