 +  * Category 4 fees are approved on the first Monday of Sept, Dec, March, June
 +  * Fees should cover Materials, Labor, Maintenance cost, Replacement cost.
 +  * The focus for staffing the print are should be evenings and weekends (when the ITC Shop is closed, and faculty are not available). 5-9 on weekdays. Photo has allocated 24 hours/week in their funding.
 +  * Charge needs to be in block amounts for service credits. No refunds are given, and credits can have a sunset. Possibly have papercut use a credit or point value instead of dollars.
 +  * For 3D printing we need to schedule the projects and work out the demand per week.
