Wireless Printing (Mobile Devices) - Email to Print

Email to Print allows mobile device users to print documents by sending them as an email attachment. No client software or drivers are required, providing a simple way to print from any device that can send an email. Note: These instructions are not intended for offsite printing for the Bring Your Own Device(BYOD)courses.


  • Works with nearly any device (if it can send an email with attachments it works)
  • Supports PDF document attachments.
  • Supports Microsoft Office document attachments.

Using Email to Print:

Compose an email message

From your mobile device, compose a new email, attach a PDF or Office document, and send it to the appropriate printer's email address. Because there are no user configurable print options, these four queues are pre-configured for mono/single/duplex or color/single/duplex printing.

The print job is held in the queue until you visit a release station in the Parkland Library to print it. 

*Printing is free for Parkland employees.

Email address verification

New Email to Print users are asked to verify their email address. You'll receive a verification email from PaperCut, click the verification link in the message and log in with your PaperCut account.

For additional information, see Parkland KB documents: Email to Print (New users) - Verify email address and Public Printing (Guests) - Self Registration for PaperCut
