    What make/model printer is it? Is it a MFD or a plain desktop?

    Questions are useless without the relevant info provided

    If you need a decent logging solution for free, Papercut Print Logger will do the job nicely. It won't limit prints but you will have a nice log of who's printed what so you can go and moan at them. If you want to limit it completely, you'd need one of the paid for solutions like Papercut NG or look into building yourself some Linux based print servers.

    You could try Software for print quota and print control management. Your print accounting and monitoring solution - PaperCut It does cost but looks good. If you limited on cost you can use the free version to monitor printing.

    Hope this helps,

    Products like Print Manager Plus allows you to restrict printing. Allocating virtual credit to users/groups allows you to keep a close eye on printer use. It does definitely pay for itself in the longterm. Toner seems to get increasingly more expensive every year.
