Wireless Printing

You can now easily connect to our paid printing system from your own portable computer

Black and white prints: $.15/per page.  Color prints: $.50/per page

If you have admin rights on your computer, running the printer-installer will add two printers (B&W-Wifi and Color-Wifi) temporarily to your printer array. (These printers will un-install when your computer is shut down.) You may then print to these printers from your application and retrieve the printouts at any Print Release Station. A Print Card is required to fund the printing jobs. Jobs sent to the print release queue will remain until the close of the current business day.
