PRINTS
Please submit the Design Production form along with your PDF files to SAAH-Design@uiowa.edu. The form is interactive and when submitted will go directly to the Production Studio by email, along with any file attachments for processing. Prints are processed every M, W, F. You will be notified by email as soon as your prints are ready. Prints will be available for pick-up outside of ABW 323. 

FILE FABRICATION
Special projects which require the use of the Direct-to-Garment printer, Carvey, Vinyl Cutter, or Paper Plotter can either be fabricated for you by staff (file drop --> pick-up when complete) or if you prefer key access, training can be accommodated with enough advanced notice. It is helpful to submit your Production Form and files for review early, in the event modifications to the design are needed.
