Student Color Printing

Black and white printing for students is free. Color printing for students is $.06 cents per colored side printed, deducted from the declining balance on your CatCard. If you are a student printing in color for your work-study job, learn how to charge to your department rather than your declining balance.

To Print in Color:

  • Make sure you have a balance available on your CatCard. If you have no declining balance, you will not be able to print in color. You can add to your declining balance at catcard.davidson.edu.

  • Send your job to a printer marked PawPrint Advanced - HP or PawPrint Advanced - Canon. Find PawPrint color locations.

  • Update your printer settings to choose color, using the instructions below for your system and available printer. 

Employee Color Printing

Black and white and color printing are charged to your department automatically. 

To Print in Color:

  • Send your job to a printer marked PawPrint Employee Advanced - HP or PawPrint Employee Advanced - Canon. Find PawPrint color locations.

  • Update your printer settings to choose color, using the instructions below for your system and available printer.
