Oh, no! I forgot to print the necessary documents ──。 This is the pinch that everybody should have at least once in their life. But if you have a smartphone, you can solve it with a multi-copy machine at a convenience store. Here's how to print a PDF file on A4 paper.

Convenience stores are exemplified by 3 well-known stores: "7-Eleven" "Lawson" and "FamilyMart". You can use your phone on iOS or Android, but here's how to do it on the iPhone XS. The basic steps are the same on Android.

If you want to print at 7-Eleven, use the "netprint" app

The procedure varies depending on the convenience store you use. If you have a 7-Eleven nearby, use the service called "net print". The outline is as follows.

1)Install the "netprint" app on your smartphone.
2)Complete user registration.
3)Upload the file you want to print from the application.
4)Enter the specified number on the multi-copy machine and print.


First, install "netprint" on your smartphone and launch the app. Enter the mail address from "User Registration" and send.

Access the URL sent to the email address you entered and register your user ID and password. Use it to log into the app.

Here, we will print the PDF saved in "Dropbox". Switch to Dropbox, open the file you want to print, and choose "Copy to netprint" from the Share menu.

Go back to the "netprint" app and customize your print settings. I selected A4 size black and white. If you set the reservation number type to "Numeric", it is easy to enter. Also, if you want to enhance security, set your PIN number.

Select "print" > "net print" from the multi-copy machine screen at 7-Eleven convenience stores. Please enter the reservation number displayed on the application. If a security code is set, enter it.

Check the print settings again and tap "That's it". Insert a coin and tap "print start". You can use nanaco for payment. If there is no problem such as paper break, the PDF will print.

Using "PrintSmash" to Print at Lawson or Family Mart

At Lawson and Family Mart, you can choose 2 printing methods. One is to use "PrintSmash". You don't need to register in advance.

The outline of the procedure is as follows.

1)Install the "PrintSmash" application on your smartphone.
2)Copy the file you want to print to the applications.
3)Connect to Wi-Fi on the multicopy machine
4)Entering the number displayed on the multi-copy machine and print.


First, install and launch the "PrintSmash" application. To print the PDF file saved on "Dropbox", start "Dropbox" and select "Copy to PrintSmash" from the Share menu. Check that the PDF file name is displayed on the "PrintSmash" screen.

ITコンシェルジュ

To reopen it, just hit "Print a PDF" in the app. Tap "Print the selected PDF" in front of the multi copy machine and tap "Next".

ITコンシェルジュ

On the multi-copy machine screen, select a print service and tap "PDF Print". Select "Smartphone" (PrintSmash) on the next screen. Choose your device model.

Next, open the Wi-Fi setting screen of your smartphone, enter the SSID displayed and password on the screen of the multi-copy machine, and connect Wi-Fi to the copy machine.

ITコンシェルジュ

Type the 4-digit password on the smartphone and tap "Send". The PDF data is sent, so you can check the contents and follow the instructions on the screen.

You can select glossy paper and copy paper in the print settings. Here, we selected A4 size copy paper.

Finally, insert a coin, select "Black & White" and tap "Start printing". This prints the PDF.

Using "network print" to Print at Lawson or Family Mart

You can also use another service called "network print" at Lawson and Family Mart. You need to register in advance. The name is confusing with a net print that can be used at Seven-Eleven, but it's different. The general usage procedure is as follows.

1)Install the "network print" application on your smartphone.
2)Complete user registration.
3)Upload the file you want to print from the application.
4)Enter the number specified on the multi-copy machine and print.


First, install and launch the "network print" app. Tap "Click here to register as a member", check "Agree to the following" and tap "Register by mail address".

ITコンシェルジュ

When you enter an email address, a URL is sent to that email address, so you go there. Tap "Open" on the pop-up.

ITコンシェルジュ

Enter a nickname and password, and follow the instructions on the screen to register. Once you've registered, log in again from the app screen.

ITコンシェルジュ

When you log in to the application, you can check your user number. In this case, to print the PDF saved in "Dropbox", launch Dropbox once, display the PDF you want to print, and then launch the share menu. You have selected "Copy to network print". Switch to the network print app and check the paper size.

ITコンシェルジュ

You can check the saved file from "My Box" in the application. When you see the check icon and the word "for printing." next to the file, it's ready.

ITコンシェルジュ

Select a print service on the multi copy machine screen and tap "network print". Enter the user number shown on the application screen and tap "Next". Check the printing details and settings, insert coins and tap "Start printing".

Now I can print it.

Please note that there may be times when it cannot be used

Printing services on multi-copy machines may not be available if they overlap during service or equipment maintenance. I have encountered a case that a convenience store ran out of printing paper. Please be careful about that.

In addition, some stores may not have the equipment we introduced this time, so if you know the convenience store where you can print in advance, you will feel safe in an emergency.

For plain paper, monochrome, and A4 size, printing costs were 20 yen per sheet for net print, 10 yen per sheet for PrintSmash, and 20 yen per sheet for network print. If you have a few, it's fine, but if you have a lot, choosing PrintSmash will save you money.

※*Using iPhone XS in iOS 12.1, this article explains the procedure using "netprint (Version 3.2 .1)" "PrintSmash (Version 2.4 .0)" "Network Print (Version 2.38 .0)" available on the App Store as of January 25, 2019. Depending on the operating system, model, application version, or version of the multi-copy machine, you may not be able to follow the instructions. Also, some of the procedure screens are skipped due to editing reasons.
