Laser printing to service bureau

Laser printing to service bureau:

Depending on the particular printer that the service bureau has, you may be able to print simply. If it is a Mac compatible printer with a desktop printer available, you can:

  • Download the printer description file from the manufacturer and put it in the printer description folder in your extension folder.
  • Create a desktop printer icon on your desktop using chooser.
  • ‘Stop printing’ for that icon.
  • Print to it (which will create a print file within that printer icon).
  • Send that print file to the service bureau.
  • Have them drag it to their printer icon and wait for the print.

I used to do this with another office’s HP755cm (prior to buying my own) and it worked great.
