Duplex printing in the STCs

Unlike single-sided (simplex) printing, in the STCs you must specifically select duplex printing (double-sided sheets). Be aware that some browsers will automatically add an additional blank page to documents with an odd number of pages to keep unrelated print jobs from running together, and blank pages count against your printing allotment. To conserve your allotment, consider printing multiple page images on one side of each sheet of paper instead; for more, see Conserve paper when printing.

Depending on your campus, duplex printing may reduce charges against your allotment; however, printing two pages on one side of each sheet (2-up) reduces the number of pages you actually print (as opposed to simply reducing the amount of paper you use) and therefore does reduce the charge against your allotment.

Color printers at IUB are all duplex-capable; IUPUI color printers do not currently support duplex printing.
