Printing Costs

The most cost-effective form of printing in the Department is to use the Sharp devices. Other printers' overall costs are much higher.

If you have a significant amount of printing to perform you can use the SharpHold queue to collate it all and then print it on one of the Sharp devices at your own convenience. This also helps you to perform all the printing in a well-defined time period.

The current costs for using the Sharp devices for printing or copying are:

Type Cost per Page
Black and White 2p
Colour 7.5p

One page means one side of a sheet and so double-sided printing would incur the cost of two printed pages.

If your print job should be charged to a cost centre other than your subdepartment then, after you've done all your printing, send a note to IT Support with details of times and numbers of pages printed. Also mention which printer(s) had been used.

N.B. The costs may vary with time and printing devices being used. While every effort will be made to keep the cost information here up to date you ought to check current costs with IT Support before proceeding especially if you have a large number of pages to print or copy.

If your printing requires some special features contact Media Services .
