Plotter Charges

Plotter use charges are based on a linear foot basis. The following  table shows the corresponding charges:

Amount Printed Quota Charged
0 - Under 2 Linear Feet 20 pages
2 - Under 3 Linear Feet 40 pages

Please make sure that you plan accordingly when printing to a plotter, as your quota can diminish quickly.
