So. You're a couple days away from an interview and looking for a place to print your resume - don't worry, you're not alone! This post gets plenty of hits from people just like you. And you have plenty of options.
So, wondering where you can print your resume? Below are five places to print your resume, just in time for your big interview or career fair.
Printing at home: Printing your resume from home on resume paper is your easiest and most convenient option if you have access to a printer. Scoop up some resume paper from Staples or Amazon. We tend to
like the Opus Resume Paper because it has a nice off-white ivory that adds a touch of polish - and comes complete with a high quality interview portfolio to make sure you're all set for your upcoming interview. If you're not kitted out with a portfolio and resume paper, start there.
- Staples: Staples has a copy center with an associate to help with your printing needs. Staples is organized a bit differently than FedEx Office, and generally seems to to not run as large of a production operation at the full-service counter. This makes small jobs a bit easier to sneak into the queue. The best part about this is that you don't need to figure anything out on your own, but like any full-service operation, you're going to want to flag down an associate for help. We were quoted $0.41 - $3.00 per resume print when we called into our local Staples location. So, a bit more expensive than FedEx Office depending on what exactly you purchase. You can find a nearby Staples location through this tool. Make the most of your premium resume paper with a beautiful and modern resume design, such as the one offered through Creative Market below which can be populated easily in Microsoft Word in a few minutes.
- Public libraries: Yep! Your good old public library is a place to print your resume. Not all libraries are the same, so give them a call to understand their process beforehand. For example, you will want to know if you need to bring a thumb drive or if it'd be smarter to access your resume via email. Don't expect the library to stock premium resume paper (but ask!). If you can't find nice resume paper handy, elevate your appearance with some of our best leather portfolios. Public libraries can be a great resume printing options on the cheap. We didn't conduct research on pricing, since every location will be different - so call your local library for more information.
- FedEx Office: This office center's work stations are split into self-serve and full service areas. The self-service work stations are great if you're familiar with the machines and how to get in and out quickly. Some machines, like the desktop computers, charge per minute. The copy machines charge per print, whether that print is a mistake or perfect, so start with a test print or two. FedEx Office also carries resume paper that you can purchase. Purchasing resume paper sometimes will nudge you to the full-service production desk so try to bring your own resume paper, you can see our top resume paper recommendations here. You will load your paper into one of their printers, log onto a computer, and print to the correct printer. If unfamiliar, grab an associate to help so that you aren't paying extra for learning the process. If you don't have your own paper and use the full-service production center, resume prints are $0.24 - $0.79 cents per print, per a call into our local FedEx Office location. You can find nearby FedEx Office locations through this tool, just filter for print services.
