Release a Print Job

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

  1. Go to a printer:
    • Andrew B&W Central queue - your print job will be available at ANY location.
    • Andrew Color queue - visit one of the color print stations.
  2. Tap the printer release touchscreen, if necessary.
  3. Swipe your ID card or Plaid Ca$h card on the card reader in the direction indicated.
    Note: If you swipe a Plaid Ca$h card, ALL guest jobs display.
  4. Touch the job on the screen. If there are multiple printers at the location, look at the bottom-right corner of the release station screen to see where your job will print. 
  5. Touch Print. As soon as you touch Print, the cost is deducted from your quota.
  6. If you created a password for the print job, enter the same password to release the document.
  7. When finished, touch Exit.

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