AC Print Centre Price Adjustments

Posted by Stephanie Rogers on May 19, 2017 in News

Effective June 1, 2017, a 5% increase will be applied to printing services and paper supply orders through the AC Print Centre. Prior to this increase, the service prices for AC departments have remained unchanged for four years.  The current price change is in response to increased manufacturing costs across the paper industry.

The new printing price applies to black & white printing only, and the price for colour printing will not be impacted. Please note that large print quantities will be custom quoted, and volume discounts will be applied when possible. Even with the increase, prices remain competitive and in most cases, lower than market rates.

The increase for office paper applies to 100% recycled 20 lb. white copy paper supplied through the Print Centre and procured through the university’s contract supplier, OfficeMax Grand & Toy. This paper is for use in departmental printers and multifunctional devices across campus.

Dalhousie has adopted a Paper Policy which includes a commitment to the use of 100% post-consumer recycled paper as the university’s base paper, along with recommendations to reduce the environmental and economic footprint of paper use. To help offset paper costs, please ensure that print devices are defaulted to duplex printing and copying, and utilize the scan-to-email functionality on multifunctional devices to support the electronic transmission of documents.

The most economical and sustainable option for regular office paper continues to be 100% post-consumer paper procured through the university’s fine paper contract, which can be ordered through the Print Centre.
