High Speed Duplicating

Printing Services


(also called Production Copying)

Photocopying is a relatively quick way to make a good copy of most “black and white” documents. It is usually recommended for small runs (less than 1000 copies per page) of text-oriented documents. Most people are aware of the limitations of photocopying. Copiers do not like things taped together; they do not cope well with photos or originals on coloured paper; they can only accept a certain range of paper thickness, and any colour ink is fine, as long as it's black.

The University of Winnipeg operates two large high speed Ricoh AF1050 production copiers. These machines operate like a photocopier, producing 85 copies per minute. High speed duplicating is ideal for black copies on 8 ½” x 11" paper and light weight cover stock.

In addition to conventional photocopying, our production machines can insert, collate, add covers, staple or hole punch your job.

For high speed duplicating costs, see the Price List.

e-Printing

e-printing is a digital process that integrates scanning, laser imaging and xerographic (photocopier) printing in a single machine. What you get is photocopier speed, laser printer quality and the ability to print from a diskette, cd or electronic file.

e-printing accepts electronic files transmitted over a network or captures digital masters from hard copy originals placed in its high resolution scanner. Once in the system, these digital masters may be viewed for merging with other documents, printed for proofing, stored for printing at a later date, or printed on a 600 dpi laser printer at a speed up to 85 pages per minute.

e-printing is ideal for student course packs, lab manuals, etc.

To submit electronic files for printing send an email to printjob@uwinnipeg.ca indicating the details of the job (number of copies, paper color etc.) and the account number to be charged and attach the file. Adobe Acrobat (pdf) is the best format to use, since it embeds the fonts and ensures that what we print will be the same as what you see on your screen.

Like external commercial printshops, we charge a small handling fee for files brought to us on a CD or floppy disc. (The trade calls it a RIP charge, because the file is sent through a raster image processing device.)
