Plotting on the RRZK again possible – glossy paper only [28 June 2019]

Due to technical and organizational reasons we currently only offer prints on glossy paper. The previously free plot on trial paper is no longer possible; prices have been reduced accordingly, see below.

We apologize for any inconvenience caused.

From October 1st, 2019 we stop the plot operation at the RRZK-Helpdesk. Until then you still have the possibility to print posters.

Print marks that have already purchased (in stock) can still redeemed up to this point.

For official purposes, you can contact the central in-house print shop of the University at any time.
