What we offer

Wide format printing

Wide format printing is available in the CADLab office at 124 Architecture 2 Building.

Wide-format printing should be submitted digitally to cadprint@umanitoba.ca or by sharing a OneDrive link. You will receive a reply confirming we have received your file. Once the print is complete you will be contacted to schedule a pickup time.

Note:

  • Students when able should schedule their appointment times when they are required to be on campus
  • Only one person will be allowed in the shop at any time
  • Masks are mandatory
  • Prints may take significantly longer to complete. Please plan accordingly.
  • Printing services will only be provided to current University of Manitoba staff and students. During busy periods, Faculty of Architecture students will receive priority and other printing may be delayed 24+ hours.

Payment

We accept Debit, Visa, or Mastercard.

If your Faculty or Department is paying for your prints (via FOP), please download and complete the printing payment form.

Please ensure that the financial authority's name, office phone number, signature and account usage justification are on the form before submitting your file. Incomplete payment forms will not be accepted. Please have the financial authority email us giving authorization for you to print to the account.

Pricing and sizes

We charge based on the dimensions of your file, calculated by square feet. We can print up to 0.5" less than the roll widths listed (minus 0.25" margin on either side). The maximum length is only limited by the size of the roll.

There is a minimum charge based on the width of your poster(s). If the total width of your print job comes in at under 18" across the roll, we will charge as if it was 18". For example, if you had a 6"x48" poster, we would charge as if it were a 18"x48" poster. However, if the poster was 6"x41", the long end would fit across the paper roll (on a 42" roll) and we would charge at 6"x41".

Canon High Quality Inkjet Printer Colour & B&W
Matte Canvas (42" roll) $4.50
Satin Gloss (42" roll) $3.75
Premium Heavy Bond (42" roll) $3.00

Customer Supplied Sheets
*Add $5 for first sheet, $2 each subsequent sheet

$2.00
Oce Production Quality Printer
White Film (36" roll) $3.00
Semi Opaque Film (36" roll) $2.25

Adhesive Bond (36" roll) $2.25
Heavy Bond (42" roll) $1.75
Translucent Bond (36" roll) $1.25
Light Bond (42" roll) $0.75

We can also print on customer-supplied paper up to 44" wide on the Canon printer. Most of the common cut sheets sold at the UofM Bookstore will work. Paper types include: Strathmore/Strathmore Museum, Mayfair, Stonehedge/Maidstone, vellum and Crystal Mohawk. Other similar papers may work as well but we cannot guarantee compatibility. Nor can we guarantee any level of colour matching due to the differing white points and densities of the papers. Please ensure that you leave a margin of no less than 1/4 of an inch on 3 sides and 2 inches on the last side (this should be on one of the short sides) on your image as the printer cannot print right to the end of a sheet.

We can trim prints up to 72" in length. If either the width or height of your poster is greater than 72", you will need to trim the poster yourself. We also reserve the right to withhold cutting services for large batch jobs (many small individual images, for example).

Preparing your file

Please ensure that your files are sized to the correct dimensions and that all images have adequate resolution for the size you are printing. We will not modify posters and images. Double check your files to ensure there are no errors! CADLab staff are not responsible for files with spelling mistakes, corrupt images, wrong fonts, and other problems that sometimes show up in PDF files.

Do not add crop marks! Full-length crop marks will be added to make cutting easier.

PDF files are accepted for wide-format printing. Our printing software does not accept Powerpoint or AutoCAD files.  The customer is responsible for converting the files to PDF before delivery to CADLab. TIFs and JPEGs for image files are accepted (ie. photos).

If printing on canvas and additional space is required around your poster for framing, please ensure that you've added sufficient white space as your border.

Equipment loans

CADLab has equipment available for loan. To borrow equipment, visit room 124 Architecture 2 Building and complete a sign-out form.

All items listed were purchased through the Faculty of Architecture Student Innovation and Enrichment Fund (SIEF). If there is equipment you would like to have available for sign-out, please visit the other funding opportunities portion of the Funding and awards website. There you will find information about how you can submit a proposal for new equipment purchases.

Rules

  1. Equipment can only be signed out by Faculty of Architecture students and staff.
  2. As the equipment is purchased from SIEF, student's needs have priority over staff.
  3. Equipment must be returned on the date and time indicated on the sign-out form. Failure to do so will result in fines and possibly the loss of borrowing privileges. Items must be brought back before 12:00pm on the due date (3:00pm on weekends). If the equipment is brought back after that time, a $5.00 fine will be assessed and an additional $5.00 will be assessed for each extra day that the equipment is not returned. If you are unable to come in at the time indicated, please call and request an extension.
  4. When borrowing equipment you are required to sign an agreement and are responsible for any damage, loss or theft that occurs while the equipment is in your care.
