As college students constantly on the move, we don’t always get to be near our home printers every hour of the day, and sometimes, they break down or run out of ink at the most inconvenient times. Hassle, ‘di ba? With heavy requirements and cramped schedules plaguing us every week, we definitely need a go-to emergency printer we can rely on, which is why nearby printing shops are our next best friend. Whether you’ve got some bulky readings or last minute papers to print, these places have got you covered.
