Location and Access

MASTIFF is located in room 3006 EB2 and is currently restricted to faculty and staff. For issues not covered by this document, see Brian Carty in 3218 EB2. If you need technical assistance with the printer, email, or if an emergency, call the Wolftech workroom at 515-0124.

MASTIFF is available over the network via our domain print server. To add the copier/printer to your machine, please view the following pages:

Important Notes

  • We encourage you to make use of MASTIFF for print/copy jobs that exceed 50 total sheets.
  • MASTIFF is black and white only.
  • MASTIFF will automatically create a cover page for your job which shows the date and time of the print out and your username for easy identification.
  • MASTIFF can also auto-collate and staple your document(s), as well as produce booklet-style printouts or multiple-pages-on-a-page for handouts.
  • Currently the only paper size available is 8.5 x 11. To request additional paper options, please see Elaine Hardin in 3096 EB2.

Printing a Document

To print a job, open the print dialogue (CTRL + P or File -> Print) and select MASTIFF from your list of available printers. If you have not yet added the printer, you can find directions by following the links at the top of this page. Once you have selected the printer, click the "Properties" button to reach the printer options window shown in the figures below. These two figures show the options necessary for most common print jobs. If you have questions about the more advanced options, please contact WolfTech for assistance.

  • Leave as default option of "Normal Print"

2. 2 sided print:

  • Used to make job print on one or both sides of a sheet of paper

  • Default is "1 sided print"

3. Output/Stapling:

  • Used to make copies output as automatically collated or stapled

  • Configurations are saved only in your profile on the specific machine you are using. They will not carry over to other machines.

5. Page Layout:

  • Options are "N-Up" or "Booklet Layout"
  • Default is "N-Up". This option allows you to choose to print multiple pages on one side of a sheet

6. N-Up (Normal-Up) options:

  • Only available if you choose "N-Up" under Page Layout. This allows you to print multiple pages on one side of a sheet. (This is not the same as 2-sided print!)
  • Default is "Normal (one-up)", which is one page per side
  • Other options allow for 2, 4, 6, 9, or 16 pages per side

7. Image Orientation:

  • This will cause your job to print in Portrait or Landscape orientation
  • If you choose "Booklet Layout" under Page Layout, it will automatically print in Landscape orientation and cannot be changed.
