Did you know the Dick Smith Library offers a laminating service? Laminating is available Monday through Friday from 8 AM to 5 PM. The laminator needs about 15 minutes to warm up, so plan accordingly. You can call Special Services Assistant Vickie Sowell at 254-968-9869 to let her know you are bringing something over to laminate, and she can turn the laminator on.
Due to an increase in the price of laminating film and yearly maintenance, and the need to save for a replacement machine, the cost for laminating increased from 75 cents per foot to $1 per foot effective June 1, 2010, with a minimum charge of $1.
The laminator can handle items up to 27 inches wide. This means that we can fit three 8.5” by 11” pieces of paper per foot of laminate. We are happy to give you an estimate of the cost before doing the laminating job. Posters and other items larger than 27 inches must be folded and go through the machine twice, and are charged accordingly, plus an extra $1 for the additional labor involved. Please allow one-day turnaround for these two-person jobs.
You can pay with cash, a check, or a Texan Card. Vickie will also process interdepartmental charge forms for laminating done for Tarleton. You’ll need to have the correct local account number from your department, and to sign the charge form. It’s a good idea to bring the name and phone number of the person who gives you the account number, so we can call them if we have any questions.
If you have any questions about the library’s laminating service, please call Vickie Sowell at 254-968-9869 or Special Services Librarian Amanda Pape at 254-968-9251.
