What can I print?

  • PDF files, documents (doc, docx, rtf ) and spreadsheets (xls, xlsx, csv), images (jpg, png, tiff, gif and bmp) and Powerpoint files (ppt, pptx).
  • All files are converted to PDF during submission. This can result in variation from your original document. It is therefore advisable to view the uploaded file when prompted during the submission process.
  • Depending on the size of your file and the speed of the Wi-Fi or your 3G/4G connection this process could take a minute or more.

Printing images

  • Images smaller than A4 will be resized to A4 when converted to PDF. To maintain the original size, it is advisable to insert the image into a Word document prior to upload. Please view the uploaded file during the submission process before printing.

Printing webpages

  • To print a webpage or email, take a screen shot and paste it into Word then upload the word file. View the file when prompted after upload to confirm it will print as you expect it.
