Mobile Printing

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 username@clemson.edu or username@g.clemson.edu 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.

Jobs will only be accepted if they are submitted from registered email addresses. To register additional email addresses to your account, see the instructions further down on this page.

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:

blackwhiteprint@clemson.edu
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.

colorprint@clemson.edu
Emails and email attachments sent to this address will be rendered in color.

blackwhiteduplex@clemson.edu
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 colorprint@clemson.edu whether you've submitted your job to either of the above addresses.)
