Poster print

 

Poster print at external provider starting January 2017

As of January 2017, Kiel University Computing Centre does not offer printing of posters using their own devices any more. However, there is an easy way to use an external provider for this service. The posters can be printed at the company 'W.E. Gut Gedruckt GmbH & Co. KG‘, Knooper Weg 175, 24118 Kiel.

The current contract lasts until December 2020.

This page describes details of the agreement and how to use the new service.

Registration

For login and billing purposes the billing codes, which are also used for the  multifunctional copiers available on the university campus, are used. Existing billing codes can easily be unlocked for the poster printing service. The institutions at the university that have registered a billing code, simply have to download a straightforward PDF application form for activating poster print.

The web application that is used by local administrators of billing codes, offers for each billing code a prefilled application form (please see  separate information page for administrators of billing codes). The signed application form has to be sent to Kiel University Computing Center, where the poster print service then will be activated for the regarding billing code. The company that is in charge of printing the posters will receive a copy of the application form for setting up a billing account.

Institutions not using billing codes, have to apply for a new billing code accordingly. Detailed information and application forms can be found at the pages of copy management and also at our separate information registration page for new services.

Submitting orders

Orders are submitted by uploading a pdf file on a Kiel University web page. Therefore a RZ-Kennung with the regarding password has to be used, which is assigned to at least one billing code which is activated for printing posters. The address for submitting orders via web upload is:

https://posterprint.rz.uni-kiel.de
(only available from within the campus network or via VPN)

 

Posterprint-Login

For the login the RZ-Kennung has to be used (i.g. suabc123) with the regarding Active-Directory password, which is also used for the multifunctional printers.
