A blue banner will display when the print job is started and then a green banner will display when the print job successfully processes.  Your print job will be available at the Print Release Terminal at the library you selected. Enter the email address you used to pay for and retrieve your print job.

How long does it take for a mobile print job to show up in the print queue?

You will need to download the file from your Google Drive or Dropbox onto your device first, and then send the downloaded file from your device to the printer using one of the three methods (website, app or email).

What is the maximum size file I can print?

Several factors can limit the size of the file that can be printed, including constraints on the size of email attachments.

What if I sent a print job to a printer but I no longer need it?

Print jobs will disappear after 24 hours if not released. You will not be charged for print jobs that you decide not to print.

Why can’t I find my print jobs when I enter my email address at the Print Release Terminal?

If your request cannot be found in the Print Release Terminal, it is likely that an incorrect email address was entered. Please double check which email address was used when submitting the print job.

It’s also possible that there was a typo in the email used when you submitted your print job from the website or the app. Staff can check the staff view of the print queue for a print job submitted with a similar email address.

It’s also possible that your print job was sent to a different library location or incorrect type of printer (Black and White vs. Color). Staff cannot move print request between locations or type of printer. You will need to send the print job again.

I sent my print job to the wrong library location – how do I get it sent to the correct location?

Staff cannot send print requests to other Locations. If you sent a print job to the wrong library location, you will need to send it again to the correct location.

I sent my print request but it’s in black and white – why does it charge me $1.00 per page?

All print jobs sent to the color printer will cost $1.00 per page. The printer doesn’t change the price based on the file.

Staff will not be able to move a print job to a black and white printer. You'll need to send the file again to the correct printer.
