Use Canon Printers for Faculty & Staff

The Canon printers/copiers do not have a hole punching capability.

Only labels designed for printers/copiers should be used and not laser jet or inkjet labels. Using laser jet or inkjet labels on a printer/copier could cause the labels to peel off inside of the printer/copier or jam.

 

How to use Canon Printers

1.) When printing, select the Canon printer and print the job

  • On Macs, the Canon is identified as 'Canon Printer.' On Windows machines, the printer is identified as 'Canon_BW.'
