Printing at FedEx Kinkos
SPU works with the Ballard Office of FedEx Kinkos for small quantity printing projects. (Under 75 posters or flyers). If the quantity is higher than that, you'll want to get a second estimate from Lori Ross at Quality Press (loriR@qualitypress.com). Please make sure you know the cost before you agree to have the project printed. (Printing prices have gone up significantly in the last few years due to a break down in the supply chain of paper.)
FedEx Kinkos can usually deliver the project back to Mailing Services by next day. Drop off and pick up happens daily at around 3pm.
First, email FedEx Kinkos (firstname.lastname@example.org) and ask for pricing so you can make sure it fits your budget.
Here is an example of information to include:
