How do I print in black and white from a color printer?

All lab color printers can print in both color and black & white.  

But wait! There’s a trick: You must first make sure your document is set to print in black & white under “Printer Properties.”  

Follow the steps below to make sure you are charged at the black & white rate and not the higher, color printing rate (the color printers default to the color rate).

**The name and location of “Printer Properties” or “Printer Options” may differ depending on what software application you are printing from. When in doubt, look for terms like “printer properties,” “options,” or “features.”

See detailed instructions on the Print in Black and White or Color page.
