How do I pre-order poster printing for pickup at Fishbowl?


Pre-ordering your poster print saves you time and money.

Detailed instructions for pre-ordering are below. 

  1. Sign in to the MPrint account web portal with your uniqname and UMICH (Level-1) password.
Note: If you are trying to reach the page from off-campus, you will need to connect to the U-M VPN first
