@ THE DIGITAL LAB:

For AAHD students who need access to computers with Adobe design and video software, the Digital Lab is an available solution. Flatbed scanners, Wacom tablets, large-format inkjet printers, and photo/video equipment for checkout provide students numerous possibilities for artistic output and portfolio documentation. See all of our available resources here.

EQUIPMENT CHECKOUT:

Photo, video and other equipment is available for student checkout. Some equipment is class-specific and only circulates to students currently enrolled in those classes. Ncard must be presented to check out any equipment.

You will receive a follow up email from the student worker confirming your reservation**

DIGITAL PRINTING:

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. Ink does not work at the Digital Lab. To access your Papercut balance or redeem fund cards, you must login to Papercut here.

The AAHD 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.
