Printing & Plotting

Paw Prints Quotas and Rates

The Paw Prints quota is provided at no cost to each undergraduate and graduate student per semester, reflecting the amounts shown below. You can use your quota to print or plot!

For undergraduate students this quota is equivalent to 510 black-and-white printed pages or 25.5 square feet of plotting.  For graduate students this quota is equivalent to 660 black-and-white printed pages or 33 square feet of plotting. To encourage saving paper and toner, double-sided (duplex) black-and-white print jobs are charged at half the cost.

*Plotting charges are calculated on a square-foot basis of printed area.

User StatusPawPrints QuotaB&W Prints Over QuotaColor Prints Over QuotaPlots
Undergraduates $25.50 $0.05/page (TigerStripe) $0.10/page (TigerStripe) $1.00/ft.2
Graduates $33.00 $0.05/page (TigerStripe) $0.10/page (TigerStripe) $1.00/ft.2
Employee/Faculty $5.00 $0.05/page (TigerStripe) $0.10/page (TigerStripe) $1.00/ft.2


Plots may be submitted to different queues depending on desired paper size and charging method. Available paper widths are 36 inches and 42 inches.

All university affiliated users may submit jobs to plot queues CCITPlot36 and CCITPlot42.  Submitting to these two queues will deduct funds from the user’s Paw Prints quota and then from their TigerStripe account once the quota has been depleted.

Employees/faculty may alternatively submit plot jobs using a 23-digit departmental account number. These jobs must be submitted to the CCITPlotDEP36 and CCITPlotDEP42 queues and a valid 23-digit departmental account number must be provided.

These queues can be installed by clicking on “Installers” in the menu bar on the left side of this page. Please read the knowledgebase article on submitting a plot for instructions on setting up your plot job and correctly submitting it to the Paw Prints system.


If you incorrectly submit a plot or need to delete it from the queue for any reason, please call us immediately at (864) 656-4766.  The user has no direct access to their plot once it has been submitted to the Paw Prints system. If the plot that was submitted has already been printed, your account will be charged.
