Release Your Print Job

Follow these steps to release your job from the printer release station:

  1. Locate a printer:
    • If Andrew Central queue was selected, your print job will be available in ANY location.
    • If Andrew Color queue was selected, visit one of the color print stations.
  2. Tap the printer release touchscreen to wake it.
  3. Swipe the appropriate ID card or Plaid Ca$h card with the magnetic strip facing the terminal. If you swipe an ID card, only jobs for that userID will appear. If you swipe a Plaid Ca$h card, ALL guest jobs will appear.
  4. Touch the job on the screen. Look at the bottom right corner of the release station to determine which printer your job will print when there are mulitple printers. 
  5. Verify the cost and touch Print. Once you touch Print, the cost is deducted from your quota.
  6. If you entered a password, enter the same password to release the job.
  7. When finished, touch Logoff.

Note: Jobs not printed before the expiration time are automatically deleted.
