What can I print?
PDF files, documents (doc, docx, rtf ), spreadsheets (xls, xlsx, csv), images (jpg, png, tiff, gif and bmp) and Powerpoint files (ppt, pptx).
All files are converted to PDF during submission, which can cause your file to change. Make sure you preview it when prompted.
Images smaller than A4 will be resized to A4 when converted to PDF. To maintain the original size, insert the image into a Word document before uploading. Make sure you preview the uploaded file before printing.
To print a webpage or email, take a screen shot and paste it into a Word document then upload the file. Preview the file when prompted to confirm it will print as you expect.
