New Printing Resource Comes to Campus
The University is pleased to announce that, through a cooperative, cross-campus effort, we will be able to provide a new “one-stop” on-campus resource for all University printing needs. Student Stores Printing, centrally located on the top floor of Student Stores, will now provide a full suite of high-quality, competitively priced printing services, including business cards and stationery.
Xerox Printing Operations, which has provided printing and related services to the University since 2012, will be closing its campus office Oct. 26, 2015. Xerox will no longer accept jobs requiring assistance with layout or graphic design after Sept. 18, 2015. Print-ready printing orders are due by Oct. 1, 2015 and all orders will be completed and delivered before Xerox closes.
While the partnership with Xerox was a useful resource for students, faculty and staff, Xerox encountered many of the same challenges that have affected the printing industry in recent years – namely the proliferation of digital technologies and the decline in demand for printed products – and it was determined that there was not a sufficient volume of work to sustain campus operations.
In addition to printing, Student Stores Printing will offer layout and set-up for business cards and stationery to ensure consistency of the Carolina visual identity.
With the exception of business cards and stationery, Student Stores Printing does not currently offer custom graphic design services but instead refers University customers to our campus partners.

Xerox’s closing does not affect Carolina Managed Print Services (formerly Carolina Copy), the University’s photocopy/printer services. The University will continue to provide the multi-functional copier/printer/fax/scan devices and services to schools, departments and work units.
