What is LakerPrint?

LakerPrint is a new student print system on campus. The benefits of this system include:

  • No more banner pages or wasted paper from documents never retrieved
  • No accidental pickup of other’s documents
  • Reduction of wait time as lines will move faster
  • Support for personal computers and mobile devices
  • Flexible printing from any LakerPrint station
  • Reduction of the overall sheets of paper printed on campus

How to Use LakerPrint

Submit Your Document Ahead of Time 

LakerPrint works by submitting your document to the LakerPrint cloud ahead of time and then visiting any LakerPrint station to release the document to the printer. You don’t have to bring a thumb drive or login to your email to find the document you want to print.  Instead, upload, email, or use Google Cloud print to submit your document. 

Documents are stored in the cloud for 48 hours which means you can submit your document to the LakerPrint cloud the night before class and then visit any LakerPrint station on campus the next day to release the document to the printer.

Release at a LakerPrint Station

Once your document has been submitted to LakerPrint, visit any LakerPrint Station (see below for a list) to release the document to the printer.

When you release your document to the printer, you’ll notice a charge.  Print quota balances have previously been displayed in pages. The new system will only show monetary balances.  Students have been allocated 500 pages each fall, winter, spring, and summer semesters. This equates to $75 of printing each semester.  Costs of black and white documents are $0.15 per sheet of paper (whether single or double-sided) and $0.90 per sheet for color documents (whether single or double-sided). When you look at your balance, it will now show a monetary balance based off the $75 allocation and the cost of the printed documents.

Please refer to our Printing Policies for for information on print allocations, costs, and purchasing additional allocation.

New Features Available with LakerPrint

A More Mobile Environment

LakerPrint works with laptops, Chromebooks, smartphones, and tablets.  With the existing system, laptops only worked by installing a special piece of software for the exact printer you wanted to print to.  With LakerPrint, laptops and Chromebooks will require a web browser, preferably Chrome. 

A More Secure Environment 

By releasing documents to the printer exactly when you are ready to print, you won’t have to potentially shuffle through other’s documents at the printer that haven’t been picked up yet.  Only your document will be stored on the printer making it a more secure environment. 

A More Sustainable Environment 

The “submit and release” technology of LakerPrint means no more banner pages and no more wasted paper from documents never retrieved.  Last academic year, approximately 1.8 million sheets of paper were printed from computer lab and quick print station printers. Minimally, 120,000 sheets of paper will be saved by not printing banner pages.
