Printing Tips for Students

St. Norbert College's approach to managing student printing and copying supports its efforts to be environmentally responsible, as well as helping reduce costs. The following is information to help students understand and work with this system.

Tips for managing your print/copy allowance

  • Pay attention to the Print Assistant pop-ups to confirm how many pages will be printed before clicking "Accept"! The purpose of those pop-ups is to help you avoid unnecessary or erroneous printing.
  • Optimize your printing to save paper, e.g.:
    • Print PowerPoint as handouts instead of full-page slides. In the print dialog box, under "Print what," choose Handouts. The default is 6 slides per page, but you can change it to 3 if you want more room to write notes, or 9 if you want to fit more slides on each page (if you do 9, change the page orientation to landscape). 
      Also, depending upon the formatting of the presentation, you may need to change the "Color/grayscale" box to Grayscale or Pure Black and White. If you're not sure, you can experiment with the options in the Print Preview to see how it will look.
    • Print on both sides of the paper (duplex) on printers that support this. Again, each printer is different, so you may need to look around to find the options.
  • If you don’t really need a paper copy of something, save it as a PDF instead.
  • The multi-function (MFP) print/copy/scan machines in the Copy Center and Library allow you to scan printed materials into PDF files and e-mail them to yourself instead of making photocopies.
