FedEx Office, formerly FedEx Kinko's which was commonly known as Kinko's... you go there and make copies and stuff... or have your passport photos taken... They have a great hydraulic cutter, which can cut anything! They charge $1.49 per cut. So it's cheaper to cut your textbook in half than to make business cards. You can also hook your laptop to their print stations and use the Internet for 10 cents a minute. There is a SonyPicture Station located in the store.
FedEx Office stopped providing notary services as of June 1, 2010.
Kinko's was founded in 1971 to serve university students at UC Santa Barbara — most locations were originally open 24 hours. FedEx Kinko's Davis initialized shorter business hours due to the high volume of UCD and City jobs, and the low customer flow between 12AM and 6AM. On 2008-06-02, they renamed themselves to the pithy and catchy name "FedEx Office". So much better than a drab and formal name like "Kinko's".
This store has the latest FedEx pickup in town: 4:45PM M-F and 3:30PM Sat. for express packages and 6:00PM M-F for ground packages. A later 6:00PM M-F pickup time is available for express packages bound for destinations within California, Alaska, Hawaii or Nevada, and select zip codes in Arizona, Idaho, Oregon, Utah and Washingon. See the Fedex website for details. Otherwise you have to drive to the airport. The last FedEx Ground pickup is at 6PM M-F. The store became a FedEx Kinko's when FedEx acquired the company in response to UPS' purchase of Mailboxes Etc. in 2001.
FedEx Office began offering free unlimited WiFi at this store beginning October 6, 2010. The rest of their 1,600 stores will begin offering free WiFi in the near future.

2005-05-22 10:06:46 Recent experience: service is the worst I believe I've ever experienced, and the prices are ridiculous. Kinko's will nickel and dime you with per minute and per piece charges. Save your money and visit one of the independent copy shops. —AlphaDog
2005-10-03 18:27:41 I forgot my credit card there, they kept it for me & carded me when I picked it up again. No fraud to report so far... —JoFeuerstein
2005-11-11 23:23:12 Can someone who works at Kinko's tell me what they charge for surface printing for CDs? And do they have those thermal printers right in the store? —MikeIvanov
2005-12-05 11:03:49 I know they have to send CDs offsite. —DomenicSantangelo
2006-01-23 09:38:48 Kinkos is open 24hrs..round the clock. I know, I love them for that. I was a design student, and many times I used their services making prints in the middle of the night. —JessicaJochim
2006-02-17 18:22:42 Why aren't they open 24 hours anymore? Is it because they merged with Fedex? I know they cut the hours in the summer, but school is back in session! Where am I going to make copies at 2am? —HeatherKlinger
2006-05-31 18:58:04 do they sell boxes? i need large-ish ones for moving. —JessicaRuygt
2006-06-07 03:58:07 There is no longer a student discount available. And I don't know about the savings of butts, becuase more often than not, they have refused to handle basic requests that most design students will have (posters, books, binding). Their computer programs for Adobe are ancient, and the prices can get grossly over-estimated. Okay for color copying, not for projects. —KristinRicherson
2006-07-29 17:21:32 Rude employees, rip-off shipping and printing rates. —BrianChen
2006-07-31 22:03:48 I had a glowing review for their service a year ago, but time has passed and experiences have changed. I come in on average of once every 2 months. It seems like every time I need their self-print services, their printers are down for maintenance. It may just be my bad luck, but I can't rely on them anymore for on-the-go printing. I instead go to Office Max as they've been really nice and timely. With Kinko's service getting less friendly and the fact that they're no longer a 24 hour location, there are very few reasons to come here. —DatNguyen
2007-01-29 11:24:39 Each time I go there, the worse the service gets and the higher the prices. In the past year, they have quoted at least 4 jobs for me that I found other copy shops to do for HALF the price and twice as fast. I see absolutely no reason to visit Kinko's again. Try Office Max or Copyland instead. —JoRo
2007-01-29 11:34:39 I went to Kinko's a couple days ago to make 2-sided copies. I asked a guy for help, and he programmed the machine for me. The machine jammed, as did two others but he finally got it to work on a fourth machine. Then, he only charged me half price because of the hassle. I personally think they're great, but there were several other people waiting for help while I was being helped, and they may not have thought their experience was as good... —ElleWeber
2007-01-30 00:47:40 Most people are unaware that the white space between the E and the X in "FedEx" makes a right-pointing arrow. —GreggAlexander
2007-06-11 12:38:27 My experience at every FedEx kinko's is that as long as you don't need to talk to a person it's fine. I really think they should bite the bullet and be 24 hours though, it would really help offset the fact that they are not very customer service oriented. —AnthonySoto
2007-06-29 19:06:03 I recently mailed a package at Kinko's and had a fairly pleasant experience that went something like this.
Arlen: Hi, I'd like to mail this package for cheap (implying ground).
Kinko's Employee 1: Here, fill out this airbill.
A: Uh, airbill? Don't you make a digital label?
K1: Yeah, but you need to fill this out first.
A: Ok. (fills out label, hands it to K2)
K2: You know, this would be a lot cheaper if you mailed it by ground.
A: Yeah, totally, that's what I want.
K2: Oh, then you don't need this airbill. (Types stuff into computer, generates label, tapes up box, tapes my RMA label to box). $8
A: Deal. —ArlenAbraham
2007-08-22 15:58:56 Their pricing confuses me. I had three copies of a 300-page training manual made a couple months ago. It cost $98, which I paid for with a UCD purchase order. Then, last week, I needed four more copies, as well as three copies each of two 150-page training manuals. This second job cost $85, despite being more than double the number of pages of the first job. Oh, if you ask them to drill the originals, be sure to check before you leave that they did so. They seem to be very lax about this. —AnnaJones
2007-08-23 16:51:27 Worst service ever. I stood in line with one envelope in my hand (just for purchase, not shipping) for 10 minutes while several employees behind the counter stood around. Every once in awhile one would look up at me then look away. So, I took my business elsewhere. —kdub
2007-09-21 11:47:39 my boss made me go here to make legal size copies because we have a business account with them. long story short, i convinced him later to do business elsewhere. for starters, the whole place smells like a urinal. and after making copies (which took 2 mins), i had to wait 15 mins to get a fraking receipt. —JewpiterJones
"2007-10-09" I agree that this place has the worst service of any copy/mailing center. For the convenience of being open 24/7 you sacrifice a small staff that can communicate well. Simple jobs get passed to several people and lots of errors happen in the process. If it weren't for their prices and hours, I would never go there again. Bad service doesn't deserve good business. — DavisResident
They're not open 24 hours a day anymore.
2007-10-29 19:29:53 I used their shipping service for the first time today to mail a large package. The service was excellent(the guy who helped me gave me all the information I needed, including some very useful tips) and I thought the price was very reasonable. For some reason, the price I paid was significantly lower than the online quotes I got at both fedex.com and ups.com. Maybe I did something wrong when getting these quotes on my own. —Brad
2007-11-13 17:32:26 I just looked all over the website on customer review, couldn't find one. I would like to comment that customer service needs a lot of improvement at the F st. location. There's no courtesy. It was my 2nd time going in there today, and I was very uncomfortable with the staff during lunch hour. They seemed annoyed and wanted me to rush. Granted I was new customer so I wasn't sure how FedEx Kinkos works. In addition, corporate should finally decide about student discounts. I mean it shouldn't cost $2-$4 to laminate something. I'll just go somewhere else with better service. —mikam
2007-11-13 18:02:08 I've called a couple times for quotes but the person on the phone never seems very sure what things cost; they give vague pricing which is quite expensive and I end up going to OfficeMax instead. The only reason I've been to Kinko's recently was to fax something. —ElleWeber
2008-03-24 18:51:41 DO NOT have a package delivered here unless the sender has checked off the "drop-off location". You may never get it... Also you need either a tracking number or photo id to pick it up. —SlutMan
2008-05-15 12:21:55 I created a daviswiki account just so I could talk about the horrible experience I had with FedEx. Ironically, the service at FedEx-Kinko's was very helpful, but the actual shipping with FedEx was HORRIBLE. I bought a new cell-phone, and needed it quickly, so I used 2 day service. It was supposed to be shipped on Tuesday, but FedEx won't leave your package if you aren't home. Also, they only attempt delivery three times before they make you pick up your package in Sacramento. I called that afternoon, told them to take it to the leasing office and leave it there for me, but not between 12pm and 1pm because it would be closed. The driver went at 12:15...again, package not delivered. That day I called them and demanded a re-delivery, and at the very least asked them to leave the package at the FedEx Kinko's downtown so I could pick it up after 4:30. Driver never responded. On my third try, I told them not to even bother delivering it, and to just leave it at the Kinko's in the morning. So I got my package three days late, and had to bike 20 minutes downtown to go get it. DO NOT SHIP FEDEX. —AaronSamson
2008-07-01 11:44:06 They are good for copying, prtinting, and what have you. But some how whenever I try and use the FedEx counter there is always a some what ridiculous line and they don't ever have more than two employees and will never get more help. I find it very frustrating. —JamesLDownie
2008-08-24 01:12:45 it was a saturday i went there. i have a midterm on monday and i didn't notice shield library close early. basicly i was left no choice but kinko. expensive printing, lots of loading money to the card/going back to the laptop and installing the printer.
the price listed above seems to be outdated. it was FREAKIN expensive. service was fine, not the best but definitely not as horrible as people have had. friendly agents. will not go again unless having to. —applepearpp
2009-01-09 16:20:26 "Until 2009-07-17, they gave a 10% student discount with UCD Reg Card." Uh, what? —SunjeetBaadkar
2009-03-16 21:45:34 BELMONT is the greatest! I went in to print out my Save the Date cards for my upcoming wedding. Belmont was courteous, helpful, and very VERY PATIENT! Each time he tested out the finished product and gave me different samples to choose from so that I would be satisfied with the final outcome. I was in the store for approximately 45 minutes. He worked diligently with me and even gave me extra copies for way less than I would have paid for (his gift to my fiance and me). He's truly a blessing. I HIGHLY recommend him. I've never seen him in that store before (he may be a new manager or transferring from a different store) but if you need anything done by someone with undying patience, he's the man to see! —Ryinky
2009-04-14 22:46:17 Belmont is really amazing. I came in today 10 minutes before closing. I needed to make buttons for picnic day and needed to print out my designs by the end of the day on good paper. However, my formatting came out weird and the designs didn't fit the pin size. THEN BELMONT CAME TO HELP! Just like for the user above, he printed out different versions so that I would get exactly the right size for my buttons. On top of that he was willing to stay 20 minutes after closing to fix all the problems I was having. He makes me want to go to him for help whenever I have any printing problems. THANKS BELMONT!—JonathanChee
2009-05-07 21:55:49 Service was awesome at the fedex part of the store. One guy (I didn't get his name, but he's tall, bald and I THINK he had glasses) was extremely friendly and helpful. It was time for me to be closing up and going home, and he was just awesome. He balanced 3 customers exceedingly well, and when I left the bad mood I'd been in when I'd gotten there was gone. Thank you, bald headed tall dude. You un-ruined my day. —MasonMurray
2009-06-17 19:32:17 Belmont is the best! He was very friendly and helpful, and very accommodating to my lack of understanding of copyshops and colors of paper and stuff. He really made my day. Does anyone know if there's a place I can send a satisfied customer report or something? —JaneKostina
2009-06-25 19:57:40 there is this guy named belmont who is really really really really helpful.
2009-09-04 19:02:05 I come here a few times a month, every month for work and have always had good experiences. Belmont is definitely one of the best on the staff and has been there for sometime, so he knows what he is doing. I recommend him often and tend to prefer him since I know he gets the job done right. I haven't ever gone wrong with the rest of the staff, so I am never worried about my print jobs being done wrong.
One time, they even dropped off my order at my work instead of having me pick it up without even asking and I thought that was incredibly thoughtful since it very much saved me time. Awesome people. —SunjeetBaadkar
2009-11-06 12:06:03 I see a few other reviewers have mentioned Belmont. I never actually knew his name (it's obvi him based on the other reviews) but he is one of the best employees I have ever seen. He is incredibly solicitous on top of that, and helps customers people get the best deal. On numerous occasions he has totally made my day by suggesting I do my copy/fed ex tasks in a more economical way. If I owned a business I would probably try to poach this guy — he makes the experience so much better. —soledad101
2009-12-22 22:01:16 I see everyone mentioning Belmont, but I was helped by Robert today and received similar service as described in the previous comments. I was shipping some expensive canalphones and the package weighed about .25 pounds. He said I could probably just ship it via USPS and save some money. I wanted tracking, insurance, and convenience though, so I went with Fedex. —KellyM
2010-01-24 15:07:34 I have worked with a lot of different Kinko's and various shipping places, and I this one is the BEST for one reason alone: Robert. He is the friendliest, most thorough, helpful and knowledgeable shipping rep I've ever worked with! Sending packages can be a nightmarishly slow and tedious experience, but Robert so knowledgeable he is able to quickly ship whatever complicated package and instructions I throw at him. Thank you Robert for doing such a great job! You make my life easier! —cori82
2010-10-28 13:44:48 Recent experience: Printing was fine, a little bit overpriced, but shipping was FREAKIN expensive. Print quality was not as good as other copy shops in Davis. Service was fine, not the best. The agents were friendly. I will not go again unless having to. —StanDavis
2010-11-18 00:46:15 i wish they were open —timlane
2010-11-18 10:08:04 Seriously... I remember when they were open til all hours of the night when I was in College. Great for procrastination and last minute work. Now I just use them for FedEx drop offs... thats about all they are good for. —Aaron.Curtin
Shipping here is awesome, they have a 'packing expert', Rob I think was his name, who is very friendly (maybe a bit too friendly) and helpful.
2011-08-18 17:20:41 I will gladly pay more to ship FedEx because Robert provides such awesome customer service. He is quick and always finds me the best rates. Major kudos!!! —PaulH
2012-03-15 12:48:20 I work with FedEx regularly. They are knowledgeable, so easy to work with and always sooo helpful. Love Belmont and Lincoln and the rest of the team! —meadowcreek
2012-03-22 14:15:29 Went in here to have a box made to ship an LCD TV. UPS quoted me for $90-150 but box expert Robert at Fedex Office gave me some tips and we were able to do it for $12!! Also taught me what bogarting means. Fantastic service and Robert is the coolest guy ever. —gurtecho
2012-11-13 15:04:15 I have to agree with every else and say that Robert provides the best customer service imaginable and is a fountain of shipping knowledge. I ship frozen buckets of grapes for my business which usually requires me to explain a lot to the shipping company and results in them trying to gouge me with fees. At FedEx Davis, Robert actually taught me quite a few things about the pitfalls in shipping buckets and how I could improve my rates and packaging techniques. I was pretty surprised. He said the various professors at UCD ship all kinds of strange packages and that he's seen it all before. Anyway, I go out of my way now to use this FedEx Office. —MikeyCrews
