Both your print funds and your documents are connected to your myLoneStar account. You need to activate your account by sending a document to the printer queue or by logging in and out on the print station computers. You will not be able to add money to your account before it's activated.
There is a pay station located next to the copy machine in the library. You can use your student ID card OR type in your 7-digit student ID number to access your account funds. Students should NOT create a guest print card at this machine, as this will only work with guest log-in passes.
In MyPrintCenter (where you can add funds, described above), you can also directly upload documents. This way you can go straight to the print station when you get to the library to print your documents instead of logging in to a computer, opening your document, and so on.
You can also email your document(s) to MobilePrint@LoneStar.edu from your student email address ([myLoneStar user name]@my.lonestar.edu). You can choose to attach files or to paste text into the body of the email, though anything that requires special formatting should be attached in order to keep that formatting.
Guest users who sign in to the computers using one of the GST-#### passes provided by the front desk will have to create a print card at the Add Value Station, located next to the copy machine. Print cards cost $0.50, which will be automatically deducted from your first payment, but they are reusable, reloadable, and never expire.
You must do this before telling your document to print!
Simply open your document and look for the print command (probably through the File > Print menu, or use the keyboard shortcut Ctrl+P). The printer name should be UP BW or UP Color. Make any changes to the number of copies you need, etc., and then hit 'Print.'
You will need to enter the number from your print card in order to link your funds to your document and guest log-in. Though your guest log-in will expire, your print card will not and can be associated with different guest passes in the future.
