Please review the below workflow tips and best practices before you begin printing in the labs"

  • Save large files as NewschoolPDF and print from Acrobat. Save a copy of your file as a PDF. If using an Adobe program such as Illustrator, you will then see a PDF settings window. Make sure NewschoolPDF is selected as the preset. Save the PDF to Work In Progress, and open it with Acrobat Pro.
  • Print from the Work In Progress drive. Save your file to Work In Progress, and open it from there. Files printed directly from removable media (flash drive, CD, etc), the Drop Box, the web, or an email attachment may stall the printing network or may become corrupted.
  • Be patient in times of heavier traffic. Printers can only process one file at a time. Sending your file more than once only adds to the traffic, slowing everything down. If your document exceeds 20 pages, try printing 20 pages at a time.
  • Users may not add or remove paper in lab printers. Printing on your own paper is not allowed.  

Getting Started

Make sure you opened your file from the Work In Progress drive. Do not print files from removable media, the "Drop Box" or files opened directly from the Web.

To print, go to File > Print, choose a printer from the pull-down menu and click Print. You will be prompted to enter your NetID and password. After you verify the cost of the job and click OK/Print, your job will print directly to the chosen printer. PDF format is recommended.
