PRINT CENTER

The Print Center serves faculty, staff, and students with full service and self service printing needs. Our mission is to create professional products, to limit outsourcing and to reduce the stress often associated with printing. We work with Marketing to preserve the university’s branding and strive to create products that meet the standards of RVU. From design to finish, we are here to help! We are located on the Colorado Campus in the Frank Ritchel Ames Memorial Library. Utah print orders are processed at the Colorado Campus and then shipped to Utah.

Self Service Printing

Self-serve or walk-up printers are available for student use on both campuses. These printers are maintained by the Print Center. Students need to download a printer driver or they can submit their prints through a webportal. Students must be on campus and connected to the RVU network before sending prints to these printers. These prints are paid for with student print accounts. Instructions for getting started with the self-serve printers can be found on MyVista and the Print Center website.

Can you cut the binding of my book and add a spiral? How much will that cost?
Yes, we can. The price varies between $1.00-$3.50 and is based on the size of the spiral required to bind your book. You can order the spiral binding through the Print Center website, then drop your book off at the Print Center (CO Campus). If you are on the Utah Campus, contact the Print Center and we will work with you to get your book shipped to us and then shipped back to you.

Where do I pick up my prints when I get an email saying they are ready?

  • CO Campus: Student orders are picked up from the file cabinet marked “Print Center Pick-Up”, which is located in the library near the circulation desk. Files are arranged alphabetically by last name.
  • UT Campus: Student orders are picked up from the table in the Print Copy Room.
  • Faculty and Staff print orders are delivered to their offices unless specified otherwise.

How do I find out my student print account balance? 
If you are on campus, you can log in to https://papercut.rvu.edu/user. (User id is your email address. Password is your 365 password.) Your print account balance will be available on the “Summary” tab. If you are not on campus, you can email printcenter@rvu.edu and we will email you your print account balance.

What is the Print Center turnaround time?
Print Center orders are processed as they are received. There is a minimum four-day turnaround time for RVUCOM-SU print orders as it takes three days to ship items to the Utah Campus. For research posters, we recommend getting your file to us at least one week in advance. Custom apparel orders take up to 3 weeks to complete.

How do I print to the self-serve printers?
Instructions for printing to the self-serve printers can be found by logging into the Print Center website or MyVista under Student Printing.

How do I add money to my printing account?

Yes! Your printing funds carry over until you graduate.

Can unused printing money be transferred to my loan?
