How to Submit a Request for Printing or Graphics Work
For a step-by-step brochure explaining how to use the system,
please visit www.hvcc.edu/graphics/work-order.pdf.
First, you must be registered to use the system (see blue side bar). You will then need to receive an approval e-mail stating you can log into the system.
When you submit a work order request, you will have the option of uploading a file to be printed. (We strongly recommend doing this if possible. It will speed up the turn around time and you can submit tickets remotely.)
But what if you only have a hard copy of your document? Or what if you have updates for a document that the Graphics Department already has? You can print out the ticket that the system creates in a pop-up window and attached it to the document. Then send the document and ticket to the Graphics Department through interoffice mail.
If your document file cannot be automatically converted into a pdf file by Active PDF on our system (such as an MS Publisher file). (Visit the ActivePDF document list to see what file types are eligible for pdf conversion.) You should then instead install the PrimoPDF maker available for free download. This tool can be used as a printer driver to create a PDF from virtually any document type, similar to Adobe Acrobat Professional. If you have any questions, please contact the Graphics Department at (518) 629-7316 and we’ll be happy to answer them.
