Printing Alternatives. Scan documents to PDF, access files through PAWS My Files channel, annotate PDFs with Adobe reader, and use cloud storage or a USB stick.

There are alternatives to printing that save money, time and the environment.

  • Use the print preview function to check that there are no unnecessary pages at the end of your document.
  • Reduce your font size and page margins before you print.
  • Use the black and white setting for jobs that do not require colour. Colour printing costs more per side.
