Summary: Any Towson computer can send print jobs electronically directly to Printing Services Production Publisher printers. Via the campus network you can send your documents from Word, Excel, Publisher, or any other application directly to Printing Services without leaving your office. There is no additional charge from Printing Services to submit jobs in this manner.  If you are using a Macintosh, see Knowledge Center Article 602.

Printing to the High Speed Black and White Printers in YR 001

 

Printing Services has upgraded the way black and white copy jobs and print files are submitted to the Main Print Service’s operation.  Instead of filling out a Printing Services Work Request, print jobs and files can be submitted to us with just a few mouse clicks by going to our new Digital Store Front On-Line Requisition site.  Your print files can be uploaded to us right within the new ordering system. 

 

You can send us your print work instantly, from the convenience of your office or home.  There’s no need to drop your print job in the campus mail or hand-deliver it to us.   When you complete the on-line form, just fax us your “Order Confirmation” page to 410-704-4019 and your print job will be started.

(Note: The old Black-and-White print driver you are currently using to send us files will no longer be functional). 

 

In order to register, contact Larry Dernetz at 410-704-2010; we will schedule you for a brief training session on the new Digital Store Front system.
