Print Shop Overview
The Print Shop is located at 1174 Entley Street (off 13 Avenue, across from Koncrete Industries) and is open Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. The Print Shop telephone number is 509-527-3014.
Print Shop Services
Approximately seven million pieces of paper pass through Walla Walla Public Schools Print Shop equipment each year. Print Shop staff use an offset press and high speed copy machines as the primary method of reproduction. Duplication of original prints, bookletmaking, and folding are the Print Shop’s primary functions. Services are limited to in-house equipment. Some types of binding (comb, etc.), drilling, laminating, counting, and other finishing services ARE NOT available at the Print Shop. Customers requesting services not available at the Print Shop will be notified to determine if their job should be sent to an outside vendor (AT THEIR EXPENSE) for production. Print Shop staff will provide complimentary cost estimates for services not available in the Print Shop.
All printing requests must be submitted with a request form (see page 4 for example) and a camera-ready original. Print request forms are available through your printing liaison, office secretary or at the Print Shop. Incomplete request forms or poor quality originals are subject to return, and thus delay job turnaround time.
Due to large volumes of requests received, Print Shop staff encourage five days lead time, however most jobs are returned within two days. To better serve our customers, requests submitted without five days lead time will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis to determine turnaround time. Large quantity or specialty printing requests may require additional time. Classroom materials, parental communications and administrative forms will receive the highest priority. Personal and logo notepads, business cards, bookmarks and other materials may be deferred if circumstances warrant. Printing orders are delivered to customers on Tuesday and Thursdays (unless other arrangements have been made).
PLEASE NOTE! The last three weeks of the school year and the first two months of the new school year are particularly high volume printing times. Printing requests submitted during these periods may require more lead time. Print Shop personnel strive for the quickest turnaround possible! Help them out by submitting order forms as soon as possible.
Originals must be submitted in black ink or print (from laser or ink jet printers). Originals done in pencil or colored inks do not reproduce well. Also, originals on dark colored paper do not print well. For best results, black felt-tip ink pens should be used for signatures. NOTE: PHOTOGRAPHS DO NOT REPRODUCE WELL ON COPY MACHINES.
Print Shop staff are not responsible for “proofing” materials submitted for printing. Reprinting, as a result of proofing errors, is expensive and creates delays. Please proof all materials prior to submitting for production.
Copyright & Other Restrictions
The copyright law of the United States governs the making of reproductions or photocopies of copyrighted material. Copyright legislation is intended to provide incentive and to protect the financial interests of creative individuals by prohibiting others from copying or otherwise misusing their works. If found guilty of willfully infringing a copyright for private or commercial financial gain, the penalty could be $10,000 or imprisonment for up to one year or both. Even when the motive for a violation is altruistic (for example, providing materials for students while saving taxpayer dollars), such noncompliance not only endangers the educational enterprise, but undermines the image commonly referred to in education laws as “teacher as exemplar.”
Take a Close Look
Please keep in mind that stickers, greeting cards, coloring books, Disney products, cartoons from magazines and the newspaper, and magazine articles are copyrighted materials and must have written authorized approval to reproduce.
Right to Refuse
Walla Walla Public Schools Print Shop staff members reserve the right to refuse to accept a printing request if, in their judgement, fulfillment of the request would involve violation of the copyright law. Print Shop staff will print copyright material only if the requestor can provide written permission to use the copyrighted material(s).
PRINT SHOP STAFF WILL NOT PRINT ANY MATERIAL(S) OF A RELIGIOUS OR POLITICAL NATURE.
