Carnegie Mellon University

Welcome to Tartan Ink

Tartan Ink, CMU's copy and print center, operates three centers for the Carnegie Mellon University community. Tartan Ink, our main store, opened at the beginning of July 2017 in the Cohon University Center’s lower level.  Our other locations include the Tepper Copy Center in Tepper Quad Room 1214 and the Production Center in Hall of Arts Room A18.

In addition to the copy and print locations, the Tartan Ink offers an opportunity for individual departments to meet their copying and printing needs within their offices. Working out of the Cohon University Center and Hall of Arts, the Tartan Ink Convenience Copier Program and Tartan Ink Managed Printer Program currently supports over 200 units across campus. Our experienced staff provide contract negotiating with vendors, administrative support, as well as maintenance and supplies for copiers and printers of various sizes.

Tartan Ink continues to support students completing OPT documentation via copying, printing, passport photos, and UPS shipping.
