PrintPress Policy & Recommended Printers

To ensure performance expectations and centralized management of networked work group printers, Information Technology will support the following printers on the central print server, PrintPress. Work group printers are typically intended to provide service to five or more users connected to a printer. IT Computer Support Specialists will work with you to get the printer added to the server, configure departmental computers to print to the shared work group printer, and help troubleshoot any printing errors.

If you purchase a printer that is not included in this list, it will not be added to the PrintPress print server. Instead, IT Computer Support Specialists will configure your computer to print directly to the printer. Before purchasing a printer, consider the current functionality of any Konica Minolta copier/printer already being used in the department. The current KM copiers are capable of 11x17 tabloid printing, and can handle many special materials much better than many of the printers listed above. KM devices are supported on PrintPress to simplify setup and access for the customer. Special use devices, such as large plotters, will be evaluated on a case by case basis. IT will work with the department to obtain the appropriate software for the device and to test functionality.

Printers may be removed from PrintPress

  • when they need to be replaced
  • when software support for them is no longer available from the vendor
  • when the printers are too old to be compatible with newer operating systems and software
  • when the printer has not printed a page in the last 180 days


Print server upgrades may impact the functionality of older printers and personal desktop printers, and IT cannot guarantee that those devices will function after a print server is upgraded. In the event of a server upgrade, IT will migrate printing devices that are less than five years old.

Please contact IT Computer Sales at 766-2875 or email itsales@uwyo.edu for current pricing on the recommended printers.

Konica Minolta copier/printers are supported by UW’s Copier Services and the Konica Minolta technical support teams. Copier Services may be reached by calling 766-5546, or email peastman@uwyo.edu.
