Digital Output Center
The Digital Output Center is Pratt's centralized output areas for color laser, professional photo, and large format printing and plotting. We employ the latest technologies and color management practices to ensure that every item student's output is of the highest possible quality. For large format we offer a large stable of specialty stocks including photo-gloss, acetate, canvas, sewable fabric, and mylar, as well as several fine art materials. We consider ourselves the most robust print facility in the borough of Brooklyn.
Workshop instruction is available to students 10 weeks per semester to help students gain understanding of proper file preparation. Included is a primer on color management. Students receive a $10 printing credit for attending the workshop. We are again expanding print capacity by upgrading 60% of our plotter fleet in our Higgins Hall location and adding yet another high end plotter in our Main Campus location. A friendly, professional staff is always on hand to assist students with file prep and print instruction.
Every semester, students are allocated a free print allotment of what is equivalent to 200 B/W letter size pages. Students use Pratt Card to add funds that are used for printing or other services that accept Pratt Card. Please visit www.prattcard.com. Departments can allocate funds to be used for specific users during the fiscal year. Please fill out the Expense Transfer Form, and contact the labs for further information.
