You will be able to swipe your PennCard/PennCash card, and then will be prompted to find your job by name and work station. Black and white printing costs $.07/page. Duplex and Color printing are also available. Duplex printing costs $ .10 per page for double side black and white pages using the duplex printers. Color printing is available at the scanning station and costs $0.28/page. Departmental users may use departmental photocopy cards, a specialized type of PennCash card.
