Printing—Reduce Waste, Save Money
The cost of toner and paper for the printers are paid for through the Center’s budget. Please help us reduce these costs and save a tree or two. Your support will help us avoid the need to institute a per page printing fee. Please limit your use of the lab printer to University related print jobs. You will need to reenter your userID and password when submitting a print job.
Here are a few simple tips that will help you save money (and the planet) at the Center and at home:
- Before printing from the internet always do a print preview. This will spare accidentally printing 3 or 30 pages when you intended to capture one page.
- Better yet perform CPP, copy the text you need, paste it into a Word document, and then print.
- Best of all, just email it to yourself and skip the print job!
- Avoid the unforgivable printer faux pas of printing PowerPoint slides! When you print from PowerPoint, always select handouts as your print option (look for “print what:” preferably 6 slides to a page).
