EDIT / PRINT IT YOURSELF

If you are proficient in basic digital editing, printing, and/or scanning, you are able to use PCNW’s labs yourself. If you are new to PCNW you’ll need to complete a short orientation that will introduce you to the labs, policies, equipment, etc. To schedule an orientation call us at 206.720.7222 x0 or e-mail pcnw@pcnw.org

Our labs are equipped with a volunteer monitor who can help you troubleshoot, but please note that monitors are not there to instruct you or do the printing for you. If you need instruction, please review our schedule of class and workshop offerings.

Cost is determined by how much time, paper, and ink is used. Renters are welcome to bring their own paper, or may opt to use PCNW Stock Paper available in sheet and rolls, including Glossy, Luster, and Matte surfaces. See our Hours & Rates for details.
