Using Web Printing (How-to)

Web print is an online feature that will hold your document on a server to print within the next 24 hours from any FollowMe printer on campus. FollowMe printers have stickers on the front to let you know if they print in color and black and white, or just black and white. If you do not have your ID card at the time, you can manually enter your Drake ID and password on the touch screen. Web print can print files from Microsoft Excel, Word and PowerPoint along with PDF, and various image formats.
