MyPrint Charges

The charge for printing and copying on MyPrint depend on the options chosen. Scanning is charged at a flat rate.

These charges cover the cost and maintenance of the MyPrint infrastructure, as well as consumable costs like paper & toner.

Printing charges

By default MyPrint will print double-sided on A4 in black and white. This the most environmentally friendly option and the cheapest option too.

Type of printing A4 A3
Black and white, double-sided 7.5p 10p
Black and white, single-sided 4.5p 6p
Colour, double-sided 16.5p 22p
Colour, single-sided 9p 12p
Colour one side, black and white on the other 12p 16p

When printing you can change the settings if you want to print on A3, single-sided or colour.

The MyPrint Client gives you details of the options you've chosen, the number of pages to be printed and the cost of the print job.

If you choose the "Auto color" option when you print, you will only be charged the colour rate on pages in your document that contain colour - any pages that are just black and white will be charged at the lower rate. 

You can send lots of documents to print before going to the printer and releasing them all.

Funds aren't taken from your MyPrint account until you log in at the printer and select a document to print. 

Copying charges

Copying is charged at the same rate as printing. You can use the touchscreen to change settings.

Type of copying A4 A3
Black and white, double-sided 7.5p 10p
Black and white, single-sided 4.5p 6p
Colour, double-sided 16.5p 22p
Colour, single-sided 9p 12p
Colour one side, black and white on the other 12p 16p

Scanning charges

The charge for scanning on MyPrint devices is 0.5p per side.

Many clusters have a computer with an attached flat-bed scanner - these are free to use.
