The PaperCut Band strikes a chord and jams for a cause

Every now and then, a few PaperCut musos (myself included) get together for a jam as The PaperCut Band.

Putting as much energy into performing as we do developing smashing print management, this year’s Battle of the Agile Bands saw us really play from the heart – and for a great cause.

The 12 days of PaperCut

Christmas is the ideal time to reflect on 12 PaperCut MF features that will help your print environment. Of course it is!

And if you’re very good, perhaps Santa will pop a copy of PaperCut into your stocking …

Are you ready to take on the Pie Face Challenge?

Nick and Patti at ITS. Chris and Julie at PaperCut. All 4 have had pie in their face, and now it’s your turn! In honor of the recent passing of a member of our Authorized Solution Center family, Alexandre Barbuat from Bluemega, we’re Standing up to Cancer and taking on the “Pie Face Challenge.”

The great PaperCut ride and shave

G’day, My name is Jason Clarke, I’ve been with PaperCut nearly 7 years, firstly in our customer facing tech Support Team in Melbourne, and now as the IT guy supporting over 100 staff. After being the IT guy in both a high school and now at PaperCut, I can see the frustrations felt by SysAdmins […]

Happy System Administrators’ Day 2016!

Happy SysAdmin Day to all of our hard working System Administrators out there! We know how hard you all work to keep our networks and (in PaperCut’s world) print servers so we thought we’d celebrate today by giving away some cool PaperCut laser swords!

Where did everyone go?

There aren’t many companies where you can prank the CEO and CTO, but we managed to do it when we moved office! With a team growing at a pace faster than our agile development, we moved HQ once again, only two years after the last growth spurt. In keeping with PaperCut’s ‘qwirky’ fun culture, we […]

Bring back the dot matrix!

If you worked in an office or school during the nineties, the whirring of a dot matrix printer will be as familiar as a fax machine transmission or dial up modem tone. While some delivery environments still use this impact technology for two part forms and multipart waybills, the old dot matrix brings us back […]

🍻 Celebrating #internationalbeerday in Beervana

Writing great software is one of our many passions at PaperCut. We also manage to have a little bit of fun, that seems to center around beer and coffee (and not necessarily in that order)! Tying in with International Beer Day, our cross continent team reflects on our brews of both kinds.  Firstly, Vanessa White our support […]

Happy Sysadmin Day!

Each year at PaperCut we celebrate one special day with a little more enthusiasm than others: Sysadmin Day! This year, on the 25th of July we recognize all the guys and girls out there for their tireless, never-ending, behind-the-scenes work in countless organizations around the world.

Edugeek Winners!

We have announced the winners of the Edugeek competition; a competition to come up with the most creative use of PaperCut’s print scripting. I have not seen a more comprehensive winner since the All Blacks won the 2011 Rugby World Cup. Much like the final, there were only two major players; one of them had to win. Jack […]

PaperCut + EduGeek = Pi

It’s been less than two years since we released scripting as a PaperCut feature, and since then it has proven to be one of our geekiest and most powerful features. We here at PaperCut Software have seen some very clever print scripts used by system administrators, some of which have hit our funny bone. One […]

Who broke the build?

Warning to regular readers – this post is “Geek Factor 10” At PaperCut we use continuous integration to monitor the quality of our codebase. It doesn’t happen often, but occasionally someone makes a mistake and the build gets broken. It’s important this is detected and rectified early so other members of the dev team are […]

Let’s take a look at the past 25 years of digital printing to see how it grew, and look for clues as to what’s to come in the industry.
