BluePrint/PaperCut is a software solution for tracking, monitoring, and charging for network and student printing. It provides print cost savings and paper waste reduction by offering secure print release capability. In addition, secure print release protects sensitive information by alerting the person printing to be at the printer when the job is released.
Important Note Regarding The Uniprint Print System : As of Tuesday, June 24th, 2014, the Uniprint system is no longer being used for printing at Yale - all users who have previously used Uniprint will be using the PaperCut system from this point on. For any questions related to the phaseout of the Uniprint system, please contact BluePrint@yale.edu.
Yale’s printing system, BluePrint/PaperCut, prints with money from your BluePrint/PaperCut account. BluePrint/PaperCut is managed by Yale Printing and Publishing Services.

When using a BluePrint/PaperCut printer there is a standard cost associated with printing. The current standard print rates are:
Some departments pay for their own printers, and may cover printing on behalf of the people in the department. Departmental cost will vary based on the specific Printer / MFD models monthly rental fees and usage. Ask the department or the department's support provider if you have questions or need help.
All BluePrint/PaperCut users have a personal account that can be funded by credit card (and/or for students, student account charge). Additionally, Yale departments have the option of setting up shared accounts that are funded by a PTAEO. For the most part, faculty and staff will be charging PaperCut jobs to a shared account (or accounts) set up by their department's business office, while students and guests will be using their personal account.
To add funds to a personal account, or (for departments) to maintain shared accounts; go to http://ypps.yale.edu/blueprint/papercut and click the appropriate link in the left menu.
Important Note Regarding The Uniprint Print System : For users with Yale NetIDs, any remaining user funds that were in the Uniprint system have been automatically transferred to the users' PaperCut accounts.
For guests who have previously added funds to a guest Uniprint account, the process for transferring funds is not automatic; however if you have a BluePrint/PaperCut guest account already set up, you can request to have your funds transferred HERE.
