Email Printing: Print from Mobile and Laptop

Follow
 

The email printing option supplements the more robust laptop printing option. You'll get best results if you use your laptop (directions for installing the laptop printing software) or one of the public machines on Wharton's campus to print.

If you need to print a document from a mobile device (e.g.: a smartphone or tablet), you can send the document to the printer by email. You must attach the document in order for it to print; for example, you cannot send a link to a file that's in Google Drive.

  • Printouts are only available in black and white
  • Printouts are duplex by default. This cannot be changed.
  • The body of the email is NOT available for printing.
  • Full time Wharton students' accounts are already set up for email printing.
  • Class Account students can register their email addresses (see directions below for registering)
  • Additional personal email addresses may be registered (see directions below for registering)

Print a Document

  1. Attach the document you would like to print to an email and send it to: print@wharton.upenn.edu
  2. When your document is ready, you will receive an email notification with the subject line: EmailPrint Notification: All of your documents are ready for release.
    • You must receive the email before you go to the printer. Otherwise your document may not be available at the printer.
    • The larger the attachment, the longer it will take to render and become available to print. Please allow enough time to for your document to render.
  3. Go to a printer and release your job as usual. If you added any information to the email body, you'll see two documents:
      • The body of the email (listed as "Email: [Subject]")
      • The attachment, listed by its name
