How to use Web Print to print remotely

 Page Summary

Web Print allows you to print from anywhere on IWU's campuses to the "Follow Me" printer (black & white) or the "Follow Me Color" printer (full color), and then release the print job by swiping your ID card at any of the ID reader enabled copiers on campus such as in Jackson Library. Learn more about how to use this feature on this page.

What is "Web Print"?

Web Print is a feature of PaperCut that allows you to submit a document for printing through a web page. This allows you to print your documents without installing a printer, and allows you to send a job to the printer ahead of when you'll need to pick it up. 

When you submit a print job through the Web Print feature, your document will be securely held for up to 8 hours allowing you to later visit a copier that has a card reader, swipe your ID, and print your document out. This can be useful if you'll have limited time between classes but need to have a physical print out of a paper or project. For example, you can submit a job at 8am and between your 9am class and your 10am class you can stop by the Library and walk up to the copier and swipe your ID card and grab your print out before heading to your next class.

8 Hour Time Limit:
Jobs submitted to the Web Print feature will only be held for 8 hours. An email notice will be sent to you 1 hour before your job is set to expire. Jobs that expire do not charge your printing funds.
