Digital print – Bath Spa University

Print designs and explore graphics large and small.

We offer students the opportunity to produce printed work in many forms. The Digital Print workshop enables students to produce high quality digital work using industry-standard software such as the Adobe Creative suite, large-format digital printers, large format scanners, and vinyl plotters.

This enables students to produce work on a large scale, but also to produce books and magazines as well. In addition to a high-end professional printing/binding printer for producing books, we teach traditional bookbinding techniques to enable students to produce professional quality publications.

We have comprehensive digital workshops and facilities and we're constantly adding to our digital technology. Our current facilities include:

  • 3D printers
  • 3D scanner
  • CNC router and milling machine
  • CAD lab
  • Laser cutters (plastics, paper, wood, fabric)
  • Vinyl plotter cutter
  • Ceramic transfer printer
  • Digital embroidery machines
  • Large format inkjet printers
  • Mac and PC suites for Adobe CC, AutoCAD, 3DS Max, Unity3D, Dragonframe and more.

As a Bath Spa student of any course, once you’ve booked and attended your safety induction, you can use any of our workshop facilities.

We work closely with your course tutors to ensure that you’re inducted to the workshops that are relevant to your course, and this process is ongoing and flexible – you’re encouraged to attend refresher inductions as needed so that you’re always working safely with the wealth of techniques, facilities and technical support available.
