Faculty Access to Copy, Print Online  

The University of Houston Print Shop’s new Digital Storefront allows you to order print jobs through an online ordering platform similar to Amazon. This portal will eliminate the need to walk down to the print shop and fill out an order form or provide a file via USB or email. You will now be able to build and preview your print jobs live before submitting them. Please be advised that as appropriate, jobs have to adhere to University of Houston Branding Guidelines.
