Media Center Helpful Hints
- Please wear your ID Badge. The Media Center is for Duncanville ISD employees only. (Volunteers, booster clubs and PTAs are also permitted). District-related material only.
- Children under the age of 11 are not allowed in the Media Center for liability reasons. Please leave them with a caregiver. Older children must be under your supervision at all times.
- Color copies can be made on the Media Center Xerox copier. Black & white copies should be made on your campus copier.
- It is always a good idea to bring your laptop with you if you are printing something on the Media Center copier with SafeQ. That way, if something goes wrong, we can troubleshoot it while you are here.
- If you are planning to laminate on the oversize machine (38 inches), please call 20 minutes ahead so it can be warmed up. I do not keep it on unless it is needed.
- Make sure you know your school/department’s charge policy before you come.
- Forms of payment – cash or check.
- The Media Center is a self-service center. I am happy to help you while you are here. I am not set up to take orders.
- All of the equipment in the Media Center is available for your use free of charge. You pay for the materials you use while you are here.
- The Media Center has two desktop computers that are hooked up to the various printers. They are not available for you to use to create a project.
- Color posters come in many sizes (See below). For best results, please design your original as an 8.5 x 11 document and put it on a flash drive.
- Select downloaded images with the best resolution you can find. If it looks fuzzy enlarged on your computer screen, it will be even fuzzier when it is enlarged as poster.
- It is not possible to make a black & white document into a color document without the color original.
