The Print Center offers a wide variety of print and design services – class materials, greeting cards, postcards, posters, brochures, business cards, textbooks, and digital art for the websites, emails, and social media. You name it, we probably do it. And if we don’t do it, we’ll find out who does, and for the best price.
We offer a variety of printing options to serve your needs, big or small. Print services are available to students and the outlying community, as well as to staff and faculty. We also offer some of the lowest prices in town, viewable on our price guide.
Specialty spot color inks
The PCC Print Center is able to print spot colors with digital Colour FLX technology with our Xerox® Iridesse® Production Press. These specialty dry inks include white, clear, and metallic inks. These spot colors can be applied to all—or part—of your design for sizes up to 12″ x 40″. There are many different possible applications of these inks to enhance your design such as:
- Print white ink on a colored paper stock
- Print color ink over a white spot to make colors pop off a colored paper stock
- Metallic inks can be applied to typography, photography or illustrations
- Colored inks can be mixed with Gold or Silver metallic inks for an endless range of colored metallics
- Clear ink can be printed over a metallic ink to apply a matte effect
- Clear ink can be printed over a color ink to add a glossy effect
- Multiple passes of clear ink can be applied to add a raised texture effect
The Print Center is happy to assist you with recommendations on how you can enhance your existing design with these spot color inks. Our Print Specialists can set-up your existing design to work with these inks for a minimal production fee, or create a new custom design which takes advantage of these printing techniques.

Panther Press book binding services
For those who learn best from reading printed materials, we now offer Panther Press book binding services for Open Education Resources (OER) textbooks and course materials! The Panther Press Program takes your digital file and creates a paperback book, with no minimum number of books needing to be ordered at once. This on-demand service can also be used to create personal projects and is available to students, staff, faculty, and members of the community.
We offer a wide variety of self-service device options in addition to full-service printing offered in the Print Center. Most copiers and printers throughout the PCC district have been enrolled in the Panther Print Program, a money-saving effort to manage costs associated with printing. Devices excluded from this mandatory program are part of the Xerox Fleet Program, where departments (or floors) lease or purchase a device to share. Note: Any printers or copiers not enrolled in either of these programs should manually enroll in the Panther Print Program.
For those looking to share a device but not lease or purchase one, we also offer shared networked copiers throughout the district. To use these, you’ll need a Copier ID that is linked to your department’s FOAP. We also offer cash-operated copiers in a few key locations that are available for use by students, staff, faculty, and members of the community.
Print orders are delivered to the PCC campus Bookstores for Sylvania, Southeast, Cascade and Rock Creek. Print orders may be delivered to Centers via Interoffice mail. Please allow 3 to 5 business days from the time of your order for delivery.
