OFFICE OF MAIL & DUPLICATING SERVICES

After re-assessing our costs and considering the expanding needs of our community, I am pleased to announce that as of April 1, 2017, pricing within the Office of Mail & Duplicating Services is being reduced while services are being expanded. The savings are significant (i.e. black and white copies are being reduced from $.06 to $.04 while color copies are being reduced from $.65 to $.25).

Furthermore, we have added laminating and hard cover binding services to the many other existing products. Office of Mail & Duplicating Services' staff will deliver your print job along with your department's daily mail, if desired. Hopefully, with the reduced pricing, expanded services, and overall convenience, you will select to keep your copy- and print-related jobs within CGU. Come visit and let us know what we can do to help you and your department/office.

For your shipping needs, we provide most domestic and international USPS, FedEx, and UPS services. As an added convenience, all mail and duplicating services are available for personal use. You just need to render payment at the time of service. In addition to the aforementioned services, once per day all mail and courier packages are being delivered and picked up to help facilitate support to your department.

The Office of Mail & Duplicating Services is located directly below the Student Services Office in Harper Hall East, room 6. We may be contacted at 909-621-8320, or you may send a detailed request to mailroom@cgu.edu.
