Once you make your first print, you will be prompted for a username/password. These credentials are the same as your Windows login. Additionally, if you are on a Chromebook, you can sign in with Google using your school email and print that way. Your credentials will be saved after your first print. No need to login each time.
To retrieve your printed work, use your fob or enter your pin at any printer to access your print jobs as you normally would.
If you need help setting up, please put in a ticket and we will get you up and running.

Click Add to Chrome.
On the pop-up window, click Add app.
Once the app is installed, you will be able to print from EPAL-PRINT.
You will be prompted to login when first printing. Your Windows login will work, as well as your Google email account (as long as you select Google login at the bottom of the page).
