Established in 1978, the Print Services Department of George Mason University was created to facilitate and centralize duplicating operations on campus. Since then, the department has grown to become one of the most recognized and respected campus duplication departments on the East Coast. In order to provide additional service to the campus community, Print Services follows the educational mission of the University; the Course Materials Service provides assistance to professors needing usage of copyrighted materials for inclusion in course packets.
Print Services is partnered with corporations such as Meridian Imaging Solutions, Konica Minolta, Ricoh, and Xerox. It remains on the leading edge of technological advances in order to fulfill the operational needs of all academic, administrative and affiliated departments of the University. Through consolidation of photocopier and digital press volume and equipment in several contracts with outside vendors, we are able to ensure that the University and the Commonwealth of Virginia are realizing the highest reliability and best value for its printing and duplicating budgets.
The department employs a customer-oriented management style that strives for excellence in quality and service, allowing it to remain a leader in its field today and for years to come. Print Services currently operates four full-service Copy Centers on its three campuses as well a Course Materials Service. All public coin and card-operated copiers, as well as Pay-for Print services, on campus are also owned and maintained by Print Services.
Print Services’ capabilities are not limited to photocopying and pay-for-print . Our copy centers are equipped with production-quality monochrome and color digital presses capable of high-speed, high-volume traditional photocopy coupled with digital printing. In addition to supporting many digital file formats from the University software library, the centers are equipped with a wide selection of standard and specialty papers and finishing equipment to match your project needs. Patrons using the Johnson Center copy center also have the ability to submit duplication jobs electronically using the Johnson Center Digital Storefront. For departments and student organizations without access to a graphic designer, copy center operators can help you get your message across. From business cards and flyers to posters and spiral bound books, 5 copies or 50,000 – let us help complete your organization’s print project on time and within budget!
