Tips & Resources for Responsible Printing

Tips to Reduce Paper Waste

  • Always use double-sided printing
  • Reduce the margins and font size on your papers/projects
  • Use Print Preview and only print the pages you need
  • Print multiple PowerPoint slides on one page. Under Print Settings, you can change the print layout to "Handouts" and designate the number of slides - up to 9 - you want to appear on each page. PaperCut will only count that one side of the page rather than the number of slides that appear on it. -

Lehigh's Printing Policy

Policy for Printing in the Classroom or at Public Sites

  1. Introduction. LTS purchases, installs, monitors, and supports public site printers and printing software. Paper and toner are provided by LTS for some public sites. The public site and classroom printers are primarily for student and faculty use.
  2. Purpose. This policy:
    1. Promotes the responsible and ethical use of printers, printing software, or printing supplies.

Add Points to your PaperCut Balance

Each school year, Lehigh offers a generous allowance of free printing which satisfies the printing needs of over 90% of all users. However, we realize that this free allowance may not be sufficient for every user. Although we are not able to grant additional free printing beyond the standard allowance, users are able to add more printing points to their balance at any time.

To add points to your PaperCut account, simply go to the Circulation Desk of either library (EWFM or LInderman) and speak to a staff member. You can pay using either your GoldPlus or Bursar account.
