How can I do double-sided printing?

We encourage double-sided printing when possible. The cost is  $.05 per side for duplex printing in black and white (this comes out to $.10 per sheet - the same as single-sided printing). Duplex printing is also available at the color printer, for $.12 per side ($.25 per sheet).

To turn on double-sided (duplex) printing:

Mac OS users:

  • From Office applications, select File>Print from the top menu (or Command P as a shortcut)
  • Select the Copies & Pages drop-down>Layout
  • In the Layout options, under Two-Sided: drop-down and select Long-Edge binding
  • Click on the Print button
  • For PDF printing, usually there is a "two-sided" check box.

Windows 7 users:

  • For the majority of applications, select File>Print from the top menu
  • In Microsoft Word, use drop-down to change from "Print one-sided" to "Print on both sides- flip on long edge".
  • In Adobe Reader, select "Properties" then "Finishing" to toggle the "Print on both sides" button.
  • Click on the Print button
