How to use ePrint

  • Print from your PC or Mac and select one of these ePrinters: ePrint-Ricoh-BW;  ePrint-Ricoh-Color; or  ePrint-Lexmark-BW.
  • It will request your NetID.
  • Go to an ePrinter (a Ricoh or a Lexmark, depending on which one you selected) 
  • SWIPE YOUR ID CARD on the Card Scanner.  (It will beep.)
  • Select “Print All”  (or select the documents you wish to print)
  • When done Log Out to avoid accidental charges going onto your account. (One way to logout - Swipe your card again.)

Notes:  

  • You can print any number of documents from your PC, and then go to a printer and get them all at once
  • If you do not print out a document from an ePrinter within 12 hours, it will be deleted from ePrint (and there will be no charges)
  • If your desired ePrinter has a problem, you can go to another ePrinter to get your pages

ePrint accounts for Faculty and Staff

  • Faculty and Staff will have unlimited pages for this academic year
  • Your account will initially be credited with 8000 RMB – much more than anyone will need!
  • By starting with a (large) fixed amount, we can track spending by department
  • In 2016/2017 Academic year, printing charges will be redirected to each department

ePrint accounts for Students

  • Students are provided with 300 RMB in ePrint funding per semester.  This is enough to print 2000 Black and White images (pages) onto 1000 pieces of paper.  This should be more than enough for Student printing needs.
  • Students should print in Black and White, and should primarily use the Lexmark Printers
  • When faculty make assignments that require color printing, students can print to the Ricoh Color Printer in the Conference Center.
  • If a student runs out of funds for printing, they can purchase additional pages for 30 RMB.  30 RMB will allow printing of 200 Black and White images (pages) onto 100 pieces of paper.
  • There are no refunds for any ePrint funding not spent

Save by printing in B+W and Double-Sided

  • DKU encourages printing in Black and White – and it is easy to do so – just print to the BW Queues
  • Print to the Color Queue only when needed
  • Printing to Color costs DKU 10 times as much as BW printing!
    • Your account will be go down by 3 RMB for each color piece of paper, and only .3  for BW.
  • Print Double-sided for additional savings!
    • A double-side printout is ½ the cost of single-sided.  (A four page color printout is priced at 12 RMB single-sided, but only 6 RMB for double-sided)

Copying and Scanning

Copying and scanning can be performed by Faculty and Staff (and by students only when requested to do so by Faculty or Staff) 

  • Go to a Ricoh ePrinter 
  • Scan your card
  • Press the HOME Key
  • Press the Scan or Copy button – then Scan or Copy as normal.
  • Copies will be charged to your ePrint account at the same rate as printing.  Scanning is free.
  • Copy in B+W when possible – Color is 10 times as expensive as B+W
  • When done Log Out to avoid accidental charges going onto your account. (Easy way to logout - Swipe your card again.)
