Instructions for phones, tablets, laptops and other devices

Systems & LAN Management is pleased to introduce our new Email-to-Print option, which will allow users to print from virtually any device — phones, tablets, laptops — by simply emailing an attached document to the printer. Just send an email attachment from your NMC email account to any of our 70+ Email-to-Print enabled printers anywhere on campus. The attachment must be one of the following formats:

  • PDF
  • Word
  • Excel
  • PowerPoint
  • Image (GIF, JPG, PNG)
  • Google Drive document (see below for instructions)

A few guidelines for the email-to-print option:

  • Printers eligible for this service will say “Email-to-Print enabled” on their orange tag.
  • You can only send or forward one attachment per email to one printer. Sending multiple attachments or to multiple printers will not work.
  • There may be a short delay (should be no longer than 60 seconds) in printing when you use this print service.
  • The email address format for the printers is: <yourselectedprintername> You can find the printer name on each Email-to-Print enabled printer or on the student or employee Technology Support Services sites (login required).
  • Example: if you wanted to print to the T51-KM printer, you would use in the TO: field.

Google Drive Documents

Three options for using Email-to-Print with Google Drive (Docs, Sheets, Slides) are to choose from within the document:

Computers and Tablets:

  • File > Download as > PDF Document (.pdf)
  • File > Email as Attachment > Attach as PDF


  • Menu button on top right > Share & export > Print > Save to Google Drive (as a .pdf).

These options will allow you to make a .pdf from a Google Drive application so you may attach it to an email and send it through the Email-to-Print service.

Self-Service and My Academic Plan (MAP)

To print a page from Self-Service or My Academic Plan (MAP), you will need to either use Ctrl+P to print and the select your .pdf creator (CutePDF, Adobe, etc) or use the options for Save As in the applications.

Post-Print Notices

After sending a document via Email-to-Print, you should see one of the following notices in your email (again, it may take up to 60 seconds to arrive):

  • “Thank you. Your print job titled "2012 Hours.pdf" has been printed to the t51-km printer.” OR
  • “Your Email to Print job was received, but no valid attachments were found. Valid attachments are PDFs, Word documents, Excel spreadsheets, PowerPoint presentations, and images. Please ensure you have attached a valid attachment and try again.”

These materials will be available for reference on the Student and Employee site pages. If you have questions regarding the Email-to-Print option, please contact the NMC Technology Help Desk at (231) 995-3020 or via the web at
