Mobile printing is now available to users of Paw Prints.
Your Paw Prints Mobile account will be automatically provisioned with the first conventional print job you submit after January 1, 2014. This means you will be able to submit print jobs via email from your firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com account - just send an email to Paw Prints Mobile. If your email includes an attachment, the attachment will be submitted as a print job. If your email has no attachment, the body of the email will be submitted as a print job. Click here for a list of supported attachment types.
Additionally, jobs submitted via Paw Prints Mobile can only be printed on a standard format printer - i.e. plots/posters cannot be submitted this way.
You can send print job submissions to one of two Paw Prints Mobile accounts:
Emails sent to this address will format your print jobs in black and white. Color attachments or color content in the email message itself will be rendered in black and white.
Emails and email attachments sent to this address will be rendered in color.
Emails and email attachments sent to this address will be rendered in black and white and will print double-sided if released from a printer with that capability.
Within 2-3 minutes of submitting your job, you should get a confirmation email. (Note: These confirmation emails will always come from firstname.lastname@example.org whether you've submitted your job to either of the above addresses.)
Your job will now be available at any of the release stations in these buildings:

You'll get an "Upload complete" message when your job is ready.
