In order to access and print with the 17", 24", and 44" large-format inkjet printers and the B/W and PANTONE Xerox laser printer, you must be enrolled in an Art, Art History or Design class. Papercut is only good at the Digital Lab. Wepa does not work at the Digital Lab. To access your Papercut balance or redeem fund cards, you must login to Papercut here.

The SAAHD Digital Lab functions in a workshop model to help students realize their visions from both the design and production sides of the digital printing workflow. Printing costs also reflect this philosophy. However, we've included a few video tutorials that walk you through some of the most common printing scenarios and problems.

For a full printing service center, please address your questions to the Pixel Lab at Henzlik Hall or University of Nebraska-Lincoln Print Services.
