Printing and Laminating

Students may use their Ball State username to access a print allocation of 600 black and white impressions each academic term. Use the Student Print Smart service to print from a Library workstation, or initiate printing from your mobile device. Color printing is available for $.25 per impression.

The GIS Research and Map Collection offers large format poster and presentation printing, as well as laminating services, to Ball State ID holders for a fee.  

Faculty and staff can request a departmental account for large format printing and laminating, and authorize specific people to use that account. Departmental accounts may be requested online.
