On-campus Print Services Update

Miami University will be switching to a new service provider for university-related printing effective March 31, 2020.

Miami’s printing portal will continue to be available at MiamiOH.edu/printing. This site hosts links to order printing – such as posters, flyers, brochures, business cards, letterhead and envelopes. Students and employees can also locate printers across campus via MUprint and learn more about Miami’s branding and logo standards.

Xerox will continue to accept print orders through March 31 with delivery through April 3. Any orders placed prior to March 31 that cannot be delivered by April 3 will be redirected to university communications and marketing for assistance.

What will change?

When selecting “Order Printing,” employees and students will be directed to log in (with unique ID and password) and then be routed to a new site run by Arnold Printing. This interface will appear different with some new options and categories.

How do I learn to use the new system?

For Phase 1, definitions and instructions to help navigate the new system will be provided. Also, live support will be provided through specified contact information. In Phases 2 and 3, training will be provided in labs on all campuses and support will continue to be available throughout the existence of the service.

For more information about this transition, please contact Barb Maccombs, director of client relations and operations in university communications and marketing, at 513-529-1382 or barb.maccombs@MiamiOH.edu.
