Reporting Your Machine Meter Reading and Supply Inventory

Find out how to read your Imprints machine meter so you can report the monthly meter reading.

Your agreement with Imprints requires a key operator to report both the machine meter reading and a current on-hand inventory of toner and paper on a monthly basis.

A key operator is assigned to each Imprints machine. During the final week of every month, the key operator receives an email request for the machine meter reading and a link to a web form. For accurate billing, the key operator must report the meter reading by the due date indicated in the email.

Key operators report:

  • Current meter reading(s)
    • Black/white machines require the total impressions meter only.
    • Color machines require three meters; total meter, color meter, and black/white meter.
  • The Imprints supply inventory stored at the department, including:
    • Standard paper (reams) – not required for color machines
    • Legal-size paper (reams) – not required for color machines

How to Get a Meter Reading

  • If your multifunctional machine is networked and you know the machine’s IP address, you can log into the machine using your web browser to locate the “usage meters” without physically going to the machine.
  • If you don’t know your machine model number, call the Imprints Help Desk, (858) 534-2377, for assistance. Be sure to have the Imprints equipment number located on the front of the machine before you call.
  • Find your copier/multifunctional machine model number in the chart below.
