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.
