We are looking at moving to a pay-for-print model that is outsourced where the vendor provides the printing kiosk, allowing us to get out of the student printing business altogether. We have considered placing semester quotas on students; giving students a certain amount of free prints per term and then charging for overages; and, of course, charging students for any printing on a fixed cost per page. Although any of these are viable, the executive team would like for the business office not to have to manage any pay-for-print option.
I would like to hear if anyone has outsourced student printing altogether and there experience, good or bad.

"It is not the critic who counts; the credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena. Who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short time and time again; and who, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly. His place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat." - Theodore Roosevelt
