Use Library Tech: Large-Scale Printing & Scanning

Large-Scale Printing & Scanning

The  Library TechHub can provide access to large format printing and scanning.
These services are available to all current Caltech students, staff, faculty, and postdocs.

Please note: The updated 42" feed scanner is still on order, more details will be provided after it has been installed. 

Before sending a file to Library staff for printing, please be aware of the following:

  • Prints are charged at $8/linear foot, oriented to minimize length

  • A​​​​​ valid Access account and PTA or UID are required for billing purposes

  • When possible, create your document at the desired print size, rather than relying on scaling.

  • If scaling is required please use consistent measurements when noting expected Height and Width dimensions, or give the most important measurement if the second is flexible (ex: 46"x36", or 42 inches High)

  • Our 36" wide paper roll has a maximum printable width of 35.6"

    • White space in the margins to either side of the 36" dimension may be clipped with no change in overall image size, otherwise a 1% reduction in scaling may be applied

Please fill in the Large Format Print Request when your file is ready.
