Paper + Ink Use
If you use the printers, you will have to pay for all material you use â€“ no matter if it was for tests, errors, or the final print. You will receive an invoice by e-mail, which you can pay on the 2nd floor at EV 02-705 (Johanna Mongraw), by card only.
You are expected to operate the equipment yourself. If there is a problem, you have to be prepared to do some troubleshooting.
The equipment at the Post Image Lab was bought through a research grant by CFI. It is assumed that part of the research is to explore the technical possibilities of the equipment, and that users already have some advanced knowledge of it. If you don’t want to deal with the technical aspects of the equipment, you should hire a tech-savy research assistant. If you donâ€™t know a research assistant who has expertise in digital imaging, we can provide you with a list of people who are available.
You are always welcome to share your experience with a specific piece of equipment. Some equipment is very specialized, so if you discover some tricks, hidden features or bugs, please let us know. If you have any suggestions on how to improve the lab, feedback is always welcome!
