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.
