About the Design Lab

The Design Lab is a 2D digital production space and a hub for student interaction and collaboration. We provide access to design tools, software, equipment, and printing services around the creative printing needs of all students. Students get to bring their own paper and experimental materials to print on our vast array of printers. Besides the common printers you encounter throughout the school, the laser and inkjet printers, we offer access to unique machines like the Risograph printers, Vinyl Cutter, Roll scanner, Solvent Printer (For sticker Printing Only), Dye Sublimation Printer, and UV Printer. Students have access to commercial booklet production tools with the help of trained personnel who can assist you from per to post booklet production.

This is the only lab that allows you to bring your own paper stock. The lab does not provide any paper free to students or faculty. Paper is sold at the lab for the printers.
