Facility on point for providing printing services | News

Next time you need color copies, signs, business cards, posters or banners, don’t run all over town looking for a print shop. Go to One Point.

MWR’s One Point Print and Audio Visual Services is a one-stop shop for all things printed, and anyone with access to the Arsenal is eligible to be a patron.

Located in building 1500 on Weeden Mountain Drive in the building known best for Challenger Bingo, the shop is open Monday through Friday, but meeting “by appointment” is preferred.

Whitney Emerson, operations assistant at One Point, has worked there two years and said its services are twofold. The shop helps facilitate meetings on post by providing projectors, screens, speakers and microphones. Helping to set such meetings up and “tear them down” is one part of Emerson’s job.

The other is being the main person to create printed materials from customer’s emailed digital files.

Francine Stone, director, IT operations and conferencing for Morale, Welfare and Recreation, said prices at One Point are competitive to similar services off-post and in some cases are much lower. There is no minimum purchase required. Prices are set to cover maintenance and supply expenses and modest profits are returned to customers by MWR with improvements and quality of life programs.

“We have a lot invested and really want people to know more about our wonderful service,” Stone said.

• Printing services include:

• Printing on 8.5 x 11 and 11 x 17 paper, with options to include full color, black and white, glossy paper or card stock, and double-sided printing

• Business cards

• 20-by-30 posters

• Paper by the ream

• Comb binding

• Saddle stitching

• Vinyl banners

• Paper banners

• Directional signs

• Personalized artwork (including consultation and development)

• Heavy duty lamination

• Matting

The majority of business for the One Point comes from within the Arsenal, but about 20% of sales involve non-government business from people with access to the Arsenal. Depending on the size and scope of a project, print jobs are usually turned around quickly.

“We ask for seven business days,” Emerson said, but some things can be done much faster. Business cards, for example, are usually printed within two days.

Emerson provides quotes up front with posters and laminating charged by the square foot.

Whether you want to wish someone a happy birthday, publicize your hours, or have a favorite photo made into a hard-back poster, call One Point at 313-4503 for an estimate. A printed price list is also available. Hours are 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.
