Supplies for printers not under the Managed Print Services contract may be approved and purchased through your school site office administration.
How to request supplies for printers and copiers
Beginning Oct. 4th, 2021, all requests for copier and printer supplies (toner/staples/waste bins) should be directed to email@example.com, rather than routed through the Boise Schools Help Desk.
Fisher's has committed to monitors supply status on our copiers and printers, and auto ships toner cartridges to sites when they reach 25% remaining, without any action required on your part.
Staples and waste toner bins are not auto-shipped and must be requested through an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org. The FEQ number will be included on the toner packing list, to help sites identify the copier/printer the toner has been sent for.
Requests to email@example.com should include:
- FEQ Number (From Fisher’s sticker on printer/copier)
- Site Name (for example, Borah)
- Room # the machine is located
- List the supplies needed
- List a contact person or phone number
Reminder: Staples and waste toner bins are NOT auto-shipped, and will always require a request to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We recommend a designated person(s) in School buildings submit these requests to streamline the process, and avoid duplicate requests.
If there is an issue with a copier or printer, such as frequent jams or poor print quality, or other servicing needs, support is coordinated via a help ticket through BSD help desk, the help request must include the FEQ sticker #.
Monthly information about print and copy counts associated with the printers and copiers in your buildings is shared with each buildings Administration. Breakdown of charges on a per page print basis:
Whenever possible, we encourage printing to Copiers. Recycled toner bin pick up FEQ is listed as _BSD4 and is listed in the help request form.
