Wait Time for Greenprint Job to Print


The average academic print job is six pages long. The GreenPrint printers print 45 pages a minute; about eight seconds to print an average job.

However, large graphics jobs (PDF files and PowerPoint documents, for instance) require intensive processing by the printer. This means that a single page of a graphics-intensive job may take several minutes to process (blinking blue light on the printer) before the page actually prints (blinking white light on the printer). For these types of jobs:

  • You should release only one job at a time (so no job is still printing if you find you need to leave).
  • You should divide the job into smaller jobs by printing a few pages at a time until you have printed the entire document.
