How to Print

wepa allows you to print documents in the following ways:

Traditional Printing

Download wepa's desktop app that integrates with software on your personal computer to print documents directly to a wepa print station. For detailed help downloading and using the desktop app, see the Mac Print App or Windows Print App support pages.

  1. Download either the Windows or Mac wepa Print app and install on your computer.
    • After installation, search the institution list for University of Colorado Boulder.
    • You will be directed to sign in to CU Boulder's Federated Identity Service.
    • Once logged in, wepa will show up in your system tray and wepa printers will be available when you choose to print documents.
  2. Open the document you want to print.
  3. Select print and select the type of printer you want to send to (e.g. BW, Color, BW two sided, Color two sided, etc.).
  4. Select print properties such as the number of copies and properties of the print job (e.g. color, b/w, portrait, landscape, etc.) and select print.
    • You will be given a code to enter at the wepa kiosk to release this print job
  5. Go to a wepa printer and enter the code or login to your account. Then select your payment method and retrieve your document.

Choosing paper size

When installing wepa print apps, select the Large format option in order to print on paper sizes other than letter. When printing, most print dialog boxes will default to the correct paper size for the document you are printing. If you need to change this (e.g. to legal or tabloid) you should be able to select within the print dialog box. If printing from Adobe software (Acrobat, Photoshop, InDesign, etc.), after choosing Print, select Page Setup to adjust the paper size.
