Printers are scattered throughout the division. Each floor has at least one color and one black & white laserjet.
All CGD maintained systems have the correct printer drivers installed. To print, simply select a printer in the print dialog box of the application you're working in.
You may print to any printer regardless of your office location.
CGD does not implement printing quotas, however, paper is not cheap, so please think before you print to cut down on waste.
FYI: The printers will automatically notify us when the toner needs to be replaced.
