Printing at Central Piedmont
Print Anywhere is the current Central Piedmont print management system that allows users to manage their print quota, print to any Central Piedmont-managed printer, and allows for accurate reporting of college printing. Contact the Service Desk for printing technical support, including paper jams, printer errors, low toner, and issues with the Print Anywhere system.
- Multi-Function Device (MFD, also sometimes referred to as AIOs or All-In-Ones): Multi-Function Devices are printing and copying machines that combine several functions in a single unit, such as fax, copier, printer, and scanner capabilities. They can also staple and create booklets and duplexes. Multi-function devices are strategically placed throughout Central Piedmont buildings, mainly in the libraries, office suites, and open student areas. Multi-function devices reduce the time to print documents and save departments money by reducing paper consumption. They are the first step in facilitating document imaging and workflow to the college community.
- Omega Printing Terminal: The omega printing terminals have been attached to printers in computer classrooms. The omega terminals only Central Piedmont support network and My Print Center logins - you will not be able to use your Central Piedmont ID badge to release to print jobs from an Omega printing terminal.
- All Print Anywhere devices are automatically set to print on both sides of the paper (duplex). If you don't want your document to print on both sides of the paper, you can remove the duplex setting in the printer options. If you do not format your document to fit one page when printing via My Print Center or via email, your single page document may print out as multiple pages. Be sure to set up your document to fit on standard letter (8.5x11) page size before uploading or submitting a print job via email. Printing from a Central Piedmont-networked computer will allow you to use the print driver to manage the paper output.
- When you send a document to the print servers, it will not print out at a printer until you're ready. The print job is sent to our print servers, and then waits for you to release it at a pay for print printer.
If you need help printing something, please contact the Service Desk. The Service Desk will then route your request to Campus Printing.
Google Cloud print isn't currently supported, but anyone without full driver functionality using a computer such as a Chromebook can use My Print Center or submit their job via email submission.
