Printbox allows you to upload and print various types of files for printing. During the process of preparation for printing the files are converted to PDF. To speed up the process and reduce the possibility of errors, we recommend that you upload documents in PDF format (if possible).

When printing as an unregistered user, files can only be uploaded from a USB flash drive, Printbox library and scanner.
Insert the USB flash drive into the Printbox kiosk and select the option “USB flash drive” from the menu on the left. Select the file to be printed and click “add to print”. The file is uploaded to the print queue and is ready to print.
You can upload files to your Printbox account in the form of e-mail attachments by sending or forwarding an e-mail with an attachment to your unique Printbox e-mail account for uploading files. The e-mail address for uploading files to your user account is [your PIN]@print.printbox.net. Example: XJS7ID8LP@print.printbox.net. Anyone can use this e-mail address to send you a file to be printed from your Printbox user account.
The size of the e-mail message must not exceed 20 MB, otherwise the files will not be uploaded and queued for printing.
If you upload documents via e-mail, you can only upload documents via attachments. The uploading process may take several minutes, depending on the size of the attached files.
Where can you find your PIN number?Upon registration, all registered users receive a unique PIN number. You can find it in the welcome e-mail received upon registration, and in the settings of your user account on the website hr.printbox.net.

You can purchase Printbox credits:
Printbox credit is a unit for payment of Printbox services. 1 Printbox credit = 1 colour or black-and-white A4 page. After you purchase Printbox credits, the amount of payment is converted into a corresponding quantity of Printbox credits, according to the applicable price list.
After signing in to your Printbox user account, you can pay in cash by inserting the money into the slots for coins or bank notes on Printbox kiosk. The system will automatically detect payment and will load the appropriate number of Printbox credits.
In order to get an additional discount or lower price of printing credit when making higher payments, the entire payment has to be made within the same session or login. Unused printing credits are saved as credit in your user account. You can use them any time in any Printbox kiosk.
Unregistered users select the option “unregistered users” and use cash or Moneta to purchase the appropriate number of credits. Printbox does not return change, therefore it is necessary to use all the credits purchased. When using Printbox as an unregistered user, unused credits will not be saved.
Printbox kiosk accepts banknotes of 5 EUR, 10 EUR and 20 EUR.
It is recommended to use a Printbox user account, where the credits are stored and can be used later, or to pay the exact amount of money for printing.
Purchase of Printbox credits with credit cards can be done only at web site sl.printbox.net. Sign into your Printbox account ant choose BUY CREDITS within left menu.

Printing of documents in Printbox kiosk is always carried out from the “print queue”. After uploading the documents to print queue, you can print them by selecting the option “print”. If you want to manage additional settings, the following options will be displayed in Printbox kiosk when you click “more”:
Pull out the scanner tray and place the document that you want to scan on the scanner. You can use the flatbed under the scanner cover or the automatic feeder on the top of the cover which enables double-sided scanning.
Place the document that you want to scan (a book, sheet of paper, card) on the flatbed, facing downwards. The document has to be aligned with the upper left edged of the flatbed and oriented to the left. Flatbed scanning creates individual PDF files which are not combined in a single document and double-sided printing is therefore not possible.
Place a set of individual sheets of paper (up to 40 sheets) into the automatic feeder, facing downwards.
In the left-hand side menu on the Printbox kiosk screen select “scanning”. Select black-and-white or colour scanning and single-sided or double-sided scanning and then select “scan”. When the scanning process is completed and the document is ready, add it to the print queue by clicking “add to print”.
After the scanning process is complete, make sure you add the scanned document to the print queue, otherwise the document will be deleted when you sign out. With this step you save the document into your Printbox user account and it is ready for printing. Unregistered users cannot save scanned documents.
