Single or Double-Sided Printing with GreenPrint

Details

Printing on both sides of the paper costs less money and increases the number of pages you can print per term without incurring additional fees!

Dartmouth students automatically receive a quota of $20 per term for printing on the GreenPrint printers. If you use a printer that prints on only one side of the paper [a simplex (single-sided) printer], the maximum number of pages per term will be 333. If you print on a printer that prints on both sides of the paper [a duplex (double-sided) printer], the maximum number of pages per term will be 235 - which is the equivalent of 470 single-sided pages.

Greenprint only supports printing on US-Letter 8-1/2" x 11" paper.

The default setting is double-sided. If you want to print a document single-sided follow the steps below:

Macintosh Users

  1. When the print window comes up, and GreenPrint-KM is selected in the Printer field, click the "Show Details" button to expand the print dialog box. If the "Show Details" button doesn't exist, click on the pop-down menu with the 'Application name' of the program you are using. If using 'Preview', click the "Preview" menu;  if using 'Firefox', click the "Firefox" menu.
  2. Change the field that is currently set to Copies & Pages or the <Application Name> to Printer Features.
  3. In the Feature Sets field, change General to Finishing Options.
  4. In the Print Type field, change 2-Sided to 1-Sided.
  5. To save the Single-sided 'Preset' to use again later, Click "Default Settings" and click "Save Current Settings as Preset...".
  6. Type in the Preset Name field:  "GreenPrint 1-sided" and click OK.  This will let you change from GreenPrint 1-sided to the 2-sided (Default Settings) preset depending on what you need.
  7. Next, click Print. The GreenPrint pop-up window will appear. Enter your NetID (or GreenPrint Guest Card User Name), your Dartmouth (or Guest Card) password and a job name. When you release this job at a GreenPrint station, it will only print on one side of the paper.

Windows Users
