How to use mobile printing

You can send your document to print on a MFP from anywhere by using email.

Things to remember:

  • Works with most major file types (images, PDFs and office documents) up to 20MB in size
  • Printing in colour or mono is determined by the type of printer you use
  • Images are printed at their actual size, documents at the printer's default document settings
  • The whole document is printed, so to print specific pages export them to a standalone document
  • Double-sided printing as standard
  • Mobile printing is unavailable for wide format printing

Our mobile printing service has been up and running for a while now and we hope you've found it useful. Why not let us know how you've got on with it by filling in our feedback form?
