Under Construction - this page is for the new PaperCut (version 17) that will roll-out to some lab users in Nov/Dev and then to Laptop users starting around winter break.
PaperCut Pay for Print System allows students at USM, UMA and UMM to send black and white or color print jobs wirelessly from their own laptops, and have the charges automatically deducted from their Card account. Windows (versions 7+) and Mac (OS version 10.11+) are supported using a client that is installed on the laptop. ChromeBooks, Android tablets and phones, iOS iPads and phones do not require client installation, but have an extra step to acknowledge the job cost and release the job (through a website for ChromeBooks and through a mobile app for iOS and Android).
This program does NOT show you your card balance when you print. Your money is stored in a secure location, and when you print, it is pulled from that location. No sensitive data is shared. You can check your card balance and payment for printing on the MyCard website. (https://webapp.usm.maine.edu/MyCard/Welcome.do)
PaperCut Client Printing
Both Windows and Mac require the installation of the PaperCut client.
In testing, coming soon
ChromeBooks, iOS and Android mobile devices use a new feature available in PaperCut called Mobility Printing. For instructions on setting up Mobility Printing on your device go to http://papercut-mp.its.maine.edu:9163/help/client-setup.
Logging in to PaperCut
In order to login to PaperCut, users will generally use their MaineStreet credentials, although alumni and guests use the number on their card.
Although if a user with a MaineStreet account has a username longer than 20 characters, in which case, the user will need to use their full email address to login. This is due to user accounts now being synced with University Active Directory.
For ITSS staff
If the user wishes to shorten their long username, the process documented here: How to change UMS usernames for UAD.
