Remote Printing FAQs

  • What if I don’t have an email address or phone number?

    Several of our library locations offer computer reservations, at which staff can help you print what you need.

  • Do I need to include a Subject and a Message in the email?

    No, you can simply attach the document and send it. If you need help using email, contact the OneNorth Technology Center at 816.701.3434 and one of the librarians will walk you through the process.

  • What if I don’t receive the confirmation email?

    If after waiting several minutes you still haven’t received a confirmation email for your print, check your spam folder for an email from noreply@ printitservice.com. If there isn’t one there, call the location you wish to pick up your prints and ask them to check the system for your email address. If they do not see it, try sending the document again.

  • What number do I call to confirm my print job?

    Call 816.701.3400 and let them know which location you want to pick up your prints. Staff at that preferred location will ask for your email address to confirm the print job was sent. Staff will then print your document(s) and make them ready to pick up. NOTE: The print job will only exist in our system for two hours before it is automatically deleted, so please call the location as soon as you can.

  • Who has access to my documents once I send them?

    Library staff are the only people who will have access to the documents, both the digital copy and the printed copy. The digital copy will automatically deleted from the system after two hours; the physical copy will be shredded after 10 days.
