Printshop open days

With new machines, new services and new opening hours, the CERN Printshop has turned over many new leaves at the start of 2013. Come and find out more from 25 to 27 March at the Printshop open days!


The CERN Printshop’s new 8-metre long black and white printer.

The CERN Printshop’s new 8-metre long black-and-white printer is a technical marvel. It can produce 160 pages per minute (it prints on both sides in one pass) and can also staple, punch holes, do thermal binding and make A4 or A5 brochures.

The new colour printer is more discreet but no less efficient: it churns out 70 A4 or A3 pages per minute. Once they are printed, colour documents can be inserted into the black and white machine to be hole-punched, made into brochures or bound. They can even be mixed in with black-and-white pages and, as if by magic, come out in the right order!

Having recently acquired a state-of-the-art large-format printer, the CERN Printshop can now print posters in A2, A1 or A0 format. Please note that these jobs are only carried out on final versions, and that no “test” is included in the price (we advise you to do your test jobs on an A3 printer). In addition, the Printshop still offers the same services as before: spiral binding, and lamination of documents, as well as the sale of poster tubes and conference badge-holders.

Please be aware that print orders must now be placed by completing a form at Documents must be submitted in PDF format. Every order will result in a ticket being created with the Service Desk so that requests can be followed up more easily.

The Printshop open days will take place on 25, 26 and 27 March, from 9.00 a.m. until 12 noon and from 1.00 p.m. until 4.00 p.m. Don’t miss out! You may get a special “printshop present” (hurry while stocks last!).
