Large Format Printing

Primary documentation

The primary documentation for all photo printing at Ace will now live on this wiki page. There is no required class before using standard document printing on the Brother printers but certification class is required for large format printing on the Epson 9880 Wide Format Printer.

The printers

We have three printers available at Ace. Two for standard document printing on letter paper, and one ink plotter for large (up to A0) sized posters. The following asset pages have specific details about each printer as well as the status of each.  The status can also be checked on Slack by using the “/asset” command.

Where they are

There are two Brother printers, one in both coworking and clean fab for document printing. For photo printing and large posters, the Epson 9880 Wide Format Printer is in clean fab.
