Print only what you have to

This is good to the environment as well as saving you money. For example: there should very rarely be a need to print web pages you refer for your studies. You could bookmark the page, or create an "information document" into which you can copy snippets of information gathered from various electronic sources. If it is very important to print reference materials, please print on both sides.


Printing high resolution photos

Please be aware that if you use the printers to print high resolution photos that it can take up to 45 minutes to process. Any other files that are released on the same MFP will not print until the print job has been completed.

Our advice to you is that if you are printing out high resolution images do not use the printers on level 2 and 3 of Gateway during busy periods

Also converting any document to PDF may reduce file size and printing times!


Don't print in colour, unless required!

The cost of output from the colour printer is more than that from the monochrome printers. Think twice before you decide to print in color.


Printing large files

When printing large files (especially Word, PDF and PowerPoint), send the job to the printer queue in chunks or parts to match the number of credits on your print account
