Turnaround times

Payment & job pickup

Students, staff, and faculty need to add funds directly to their school issued FIT ID cards. After receiving an email notification that your job's been completed, stop by Pomerantz D529A to self-swipe the ID card which will then charge your account. View Adding Funds To Your MyFIT eAccount video quick guide for more details. Step-by-step instructions can also be found in this guide

Student responsibility

It is your responsibility to setup files and complete order forms correctly.  In the event that staff finds any errors/omissions to either, we will contact you and your job might be put on hold or rejected. It's the responsibility of the student to make their own corrections and/or resend their job if needed in a timely manner to avoid further delays to their turnaround time. Students with unpaid jobs left at PrintFX for two weeks or longer will have an academic hold placed on their account.

Alumni

Staff approval required. No commercial work. 30% surcharge. Extended pickup turnaround times. Rush pickup unavailable. Prove alumni status by emailing staff your job using your FIT affiliated gmail. All jobs must be prepaid using a PrintFX supplied guest card.  Please see these instructions to find out how to fund this card.
