For the past 96 years, Virginia Tech Printing Services has captured the university’s rich traditions, achievements, and research discoveries through the power of print.

Printing Services’ space on South Main Street today is a stark contrast to the department’s first location in the basement of the First Academic Building in 1923.

Printing Services served the university community in the First Academic Building for almost 30 years. In 1953, the department moved into the Mechanical Engineering Laboratory across from the Power Plant and was located there until the 1990s, when the department moved to its current location at 1425 South Main Street.

Pivotal markers of the Virginia Tech experience — commencement booklets, Moss Art Center guides, Virginia Tech business cards, and more — are all printed in-house by Printing Services.

Printing Services functions as an auxiliary of the university and provides the same services as a commercial print shop. A team of approximately 15 complete nearly 3,000 printing jobs in-house each year, including almost 200 business card orders every month.

Faculty, staff, students, and recognized student and staff organizations can tap into Printing Services’ complete range of offset and digital services. From simple one-color jobs to highly complex four-color pieces, Printing Services’ offerings include:
