DOC (Digital Output Centre)

At Emily Carr University’s Digital Output Centre (DOC), students, staff, and faculty can submit digital files for output to several different devices: wide format inkjet & toner printers, colour laser printers and a vinyl cutter. High resolution scanning services are also available.

The DOC is a resource for both individuals and classes by contributing to the understanding and proficiency in document creation, print preparation and colour accuracy/management. In order to assist file preparation, there are five colour calibrated workstations for final adjustments of files.

Carlos Mendes and Eduardo Rodriguez are the resident Studio Technicians available to guide you through the process of preparing and submitting files for output, acessing high resolution scanning services, or colour calibrating your laptop.

Costs to the university community are kept as low as possible and compare favorably with off campus competitors. The cost for a print depends on the following factors: 1. Size of the print  2. Which printer is used (generally printers that can print at higher resolutions will cost more than the printers that print at lower resolutions) 3. Which paper/media is chosen.  You can visit the DOC and see sample prints and easily get a quick quote for any projects you are interested in printing.

If you are interested in utilizing the DOC or have questions about how the DOC can fit your needs, come and talk to us or send us an email. Instructors are welcome to discuss opportunities for bringing their classes into the DOC.

The DOC is located in room C4230 and the hours of operation are Monday through Friday, 9 am to 5 pm. Carlos & Eduardo can be contacted at
