I’m also the person that handles the printing from our internal large format printer. It’s an Epson Stylus Pro 9800. I inherited this part of the job last semester in the middle of a large project that everyone in digital was assisting with to get done in a timely manner. Since then the printer is now my sole responsibility. I am looking into creating an online form somewhere with different printer options to minimize the need to reprint due to lack of communication or understanding between myself and the departments that need jobs printed.
These are some of the things that will probably go into the form. These are based on mistakes that have already occurred during printing this month of August as well as my background work in photo and printing labs.
- Type of paper (might need to put together sample book)
- End use
- amount to be printed
