Printing tips:

  • Preview your document before you print: Take a final look at your document before you click the print button.
  • Only print the page you need: You  may choose to print a particular page or certain pages by easily selecting the page number or range of the pages you wish to print.
  • Print to PDF: Instead of printing documents to paper, you can print them to a PDF file that can easily be emailed around or saved in a common location for others to view.
  • The printer is not a copy machine: Avoid printing multiple copies of the same document…use the copier.
  • Lastly, please claim your documents.
