How do I change the print mode of my printer on Macintosh?


Our coupon printing process uses the default settings set in your printer software. You must make any changes there to affect what tray is used for printing, whether you print in color or grayscale, etc.

In order to have such applications adhere to your default settings, you have to interact with the underlying printing system CUPS. Please follow these steps:

1

You will need to use the Terminal application.


From your desktop, click Go menu and then click Utilities.
