  Beginning Monday, August 19 and running through Friday, August 23, the Ithaca College Center for Print Production will be installing new presses in the print shop. Coming, as it does, the week before classes start for the Fall '19 semester, that is typically a very busy week in the print shop, but circumstances have left this as the only available window to install the new equipment. The print shop will remain open during this process, but turnaround times will, by necessity, be somewhat lengthened. We encourage Faculty and Staff to keep this in mind as they are submitting their orders.

Thank you for your patience as we tackle this project. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Glen Harris at 274-5702 or by email at
