PrintWright: Network and Wireless Printing
PrintWright is a pay-for-print service provided for students and guests of WSU who are using public workstations and laptops running Microsoft Windows or Macintosh OS X operating systems. Please note: laptops must be able to connect
to a wireless network, and users must connect to the "WSU Wireless" signal in order to use the PrintWright system. Also, users must have a Wright1 Card with money deposited in the flex dollars account to purchase their printed documents. To learn more about the PrintWright service, see the FAQ below.

Frequently Asked Questions
I don't have a Wright1 Card with money deposited in the flex dollars account. Can I still use PrintWright?
I am a FIRST TIME user of the PrintWright system. Is there anything special I need to do?
Yes, there are a couple of possible solutions that will allow you to use the PrintWright system. If you are a guest and don't have a Wright1 Card, you can borrow a PrintWright card from the circulation desk of the
Paul Laurence Dunbar Library during the library's normal hours of operation. If you have a Wright1 Card but no money in the flex account, you can add money to your card. Find instructions for this at http://www.wright.edu/wright1/faq.html
How do I delete the printer clients from my computer?
If you are first time user to the new PrintWright system, you will need to install the client for Microsoft Windows
on your Windows-based computer before selecting a printer to install.
If you are using a Mac, you can simply click on the printer name to download the printer installation file.
How do I release a print job once I have submitted it to the PrintWright system?
If you want to remove the "iPrint" client (no longer being used by the university), you can find instructions at the following locations:
- Microsoft Windows - iPrint Client Removal (coming soon)
- Macintosh OS X - iPrint Client Removal (coming soon)
If you want to remove the new printing client, you can find instructions at the following location:
- Microsoft Windows - PrintWright Client Removal (coming soon)
Once you have submitted your print job, you should visit the printing location that you selected during the installation process. Swipe your Wright1 card at the release station
and then select your print job from the list to verify the cost of the print job. Once you have highlighted your job and verified that the cost is accurate, press the print
button in the bottom left corner and your job will be released. If you donít see your job press the REFRESH button in the top left of the screen to obtain an updated list of jobs.
What if I don't see my job listed?
If you have refreshed the list and still do not see your job on the list, make sure that you have selected the proper location and that you are looking for either your document
title or the username you have used to log in to your computer.
What is Duplex Printing?
How much does it cost to print using the PrintWright system?
Duplex Printing is simply printing on both sides of a sheet of paper. PrintWright is priced on a PER SHEET basis. Therefore, duplex printing can result in cost savings as a single sided
sheet and a double sided sheet are priced the same. To print on both sides you will need to select two sided printing BEFORE submitting your print job. Please review the instructions at the following locations:
- Microsoft Windows - Enabling Two Sided/Duplex Printing (coming soon)
- Macintosh OS X - Enabling Two Sided/Duplex Printing (coming soon)
On the WSU main campus, Print Wright costs are as follows: black and white printing = $0.06 per sheet and color printing = $0.50 per sheet. On the WSU Lake Campus, black and white
printing = $0.10 per sheet and color printing = $0.30 per sheet. Keep in mind that printing costs are calculated on a per sheet basis and not per printed side. Therefore, a single sided
one page document will cost the same as a double sided two page document.
