Student Printing: PaperCut

You can send documents to a Calvin printer from your personal computer with PaperCut.

What kind of files can I print?

File formats allowed

What about web pages and other files?

Web pages and other files can be converted to PDF files (or copied onto another file, as in Word) before being sent to Web Print for printing. If you don't have a PDF file converter you can download the CutePDF Writer.

CutePDF Writer FAQs


Other Limitations

You are not able to choose specific pages to print in your document. If you would like to print only a few pages of a document, create a new document and copy and paste that information into it.

If you have installed CutePDF, you can highlight the part of the document you want to print and print it to the CutePDF printer and then print the PDF file.

You can also login to a Calvin lab computer to have full access to print settings and options.
