Increase Printer Productivity with Hold Print Option on Lanier, Ricoh or Savin MFP (for mac)

Posted by Kathy Portolese on 6/13/17 3:54 PM

You may not realize it, but you work with people who have a secret. It's their secret stash of paper. It might be thick cardstock, photo paper or neon yellow with polka dots. Hold back your urge to start rifling through desks, it's not like they would print business cards for their side hustle, family photos, or party invitations, since coworkers would never do that! 😇

The inventory labels your customer service team prints or the full color brochure that your designer needs you to sign off on are legitimate print jobs on special paper that get ruined every day.

You know exactly how it happens... you load label paper in the printer tray, walk back to your desk and hit print only to find that Dennis from Accounting beat you to it and now his spreadsheet is printed on your label paper!

Who's Driving?

Print drivers and MFPs like to properly communicate so they're on the same page (pun intended). When there's conflict between the driver and printer, you get annoying mismatches, poor print quality and the occasional misfeed, jam or something worse.

Does this battle sound all too familiar?

You’ve just finished up your document and you’re ready to print on that special paper. (You know, the paper from the secret stash you’ve been hiding away.)
