WORKING WITH FAD Printing Service

  • OPPrint prints only .pdf files
  • CHECK FINAL DOCUMENT SIZE of pdf!!!. Document size must match the requested print size or the job will be rejected! Enlarging letter-sized PDFs result in poor image resolution. 
  • For color accuracy on the T210, use CMYK color mode. 
  • Print projects will be completed on a first-come, first-served basis. Depending upon workload, print projects can take up to two days to complete. Do not expect overnight turn-around. Allow time in your schedule for the resolution of problems.
  • Inkjet printing is a short-run print process (5-7 quantities). If large quantities are needed, please contact Printing Services for offset lithography printing solutions. High quantities will increase the length of turn-around times.
  • OPPrint does not deliver printed projects. Please pick up printed jobs in the Art Department office in OP1109.  A Printing Backcharge form which will be created by the Art Department must be signed by the appropriate budget supervisor (dean, department chair, etc.) before the project will be released.
Not all .pdfs are the same.

Many are encountering a submission problem when trying to upload their .pdf files for inkjet output. This is a file size issue… the file is too large (larger than 48 MB in size). Yes, Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator have the "Save As" to .pdf option and InDesign has the "Export" option, but these paths to a .pdf do not by default compress the file size of the .pdf. You need to adjust the .pdf presets as you "Save As" (a pdf dialog box should popup) in Photoshop and Illustrator and/or click on the "Adobe PDF Presets prior to "Export" and adjust the presets to lower the file size.  In the dialog box, select the "Smallest File Size" present, then click on the "Compression" option in the left column of the dialog box. Resize from 100 ppi to 150 ppi in the Color and Grayscale Images options then click "Save" or "Export"

The best process for creating a small file size pdf is to "Print" to a .ps (Postscript) file and using Acrobat Pro/Distiller, distill the .ps file to a .pdf - using the "Standard" preset. This process will typically take a 60 to 80 MB .psd file and create a 1.2 to 1.8 MB .pdf.

If all of this information leaves you confused and intimidated, you can simply bring the large file size .pdf you created to Fine Arts Design on a key drive and we will copy the file to our computer and get it printed.
  • CHECK FINAL DOUMENT SIZE.  Document size must match requested print size or job will be rejected. Enlarging letter-sized pdf's result in poor image resolution.
