MDRL Printing Policy

The MDRL provides the following print services to eligible lab patrons.

LARGE-FORMAT (POSTER) PRINTING

MDRL

Large-format printing is a resource for students and faculty of Auburn University for class assignments or academic research projects. See the MDRL Help Desk for setup assistance and approval of large-format prints.

NOTE: The MDRL does not provide large-format printing for personal, campus organization, or departmental purposes. For example, we do not print birthday posters, Greek or campus event materials, or departmental signage.

SELF-SERVICE LASER PRINTING

MDRL

Laser printing is self-service. All charges for laser printing are automatically charged to your
student eBill as follows:

Color laser printing costs 50¢ per sheet-side.

  • Available sheet sizes include Letter, Legal, Tabloid, and certain pre-approved custom media;
  • The 50¢ charge applies to the sheet-side, regardless of its size;
  • Our color laser printer supports double-sided (duplex) printing for most media types;
  • Duplex prints are billed as two sheet-sides;

Black-and-white (monochrome) laser printing costs 10¢ per sheet-side.

  • Available sheet sizes include Letter, Legal, and certain pre-approved custom media;
  • The 10¢ charge applies to the sheet-side, regardless of its size;
  • Duplex prints are billed as two sheet-sides;

THINGS TO KEEP IN MIND WHEN YOU PRINT:

THE MDRL IS NOT A DROP-OFF SERVICE BUREAU. We will help you print, but you must visit the lab in-person.

CHARGES FOR SELF-SERVICE LASER PRINTING INCLUDE ANYTHING THAT YOU ACCIDENTALLY PRINT. Think before you click print, and choose the self-service printer carefully! For example, printing a black-and-white document to the color laser printer will charge you the same as if it were in color.

BE EFFICIENT!
