Now You Know

  • If you are printing a "one page" document, it doesn't matter if you choose duplex or simplex - you will get the single-page rate. The duplex rate is essentially a discount for printing double-sided.
  • If you are printing a document that is black and white or a combination of black/white pages and color pages and choose to print it as color, you are charged the cheaper black and white rate for the pages that are completely black and white and the more expensive color rate for pages that have any color.
  • Color vs. black and white detection is performed on a per-page basis. If there is any color elements on the page at all, the page is charged at the color rate regardless of coverage.
