Colored toner and larger pages (like 11″x17″) cost more than standard black toner on 8½”x11″ printing. To offset these costs, we charge printing jobs not by the physical page, but by the sheet. Currently one sheet costs $0.05. A single piece of 8½” x 11″ paper, printed either duplex (double-sided) or simplex (single-sided) in black is counted as one sheet. Documents printed on color printers or on larger paper are counted as multiple sheets for each physical piece as shown in the table below.
|Printer Type||Paper Size||Color||Price Per Page||Sheet Cost|
|Black and White Laser Printers||8½” x 11″||No||$ 0.05||1|
|Black and White Laser Printers||11″ x 17″||No||$ 0.10||2|
|Color Laser Printers||8½” x 11″||Yes||$ 0.15||3|
|Color Laser Printers||11″ x 17″||Yes||$ 0.30||6|
|Other types — look for signage near the printer|
At the end of the semester, unused purchased pages may be returned for credit to your LionCash+ account by using the User Printing Management Utility.
Not all labs offer printing on paper sizes larger than 8½” by 11”. Use our Printing Locations page to find labs with large-format printers.
To prevent you from accidentally printing a large number of pages at once, a single print job is limited to 100 sheets. If your assignment requires printing more than 100 sheets, you must change your Job Limit with the User Printing Management Utility.
- Click the “Job Limit” button
- Enter a new limit in the textbox
- Click the “Change Limit” button
If you do not often print large documents, we recommend you lower the default limit.
