FedEx Office (formerly FedEx Kinko’s), an operating company of FedEx Corp. has introduced FedEx Office Print & Go, which enables its customers to access and print documents directly from BlackBerry smartphones and USB flash drives on its digital copy machines.

The smartphone printing feature is enabled by the HP ePrint mobile printing application. FedEx Office Print & Go can be found on select Canon printing devices within the self-service area at the company’s retail locations.

FedEx Office Print & Go is now available at more than 1,600 locations and will be offered at all U.S. stores later this year. Customers can simply plug their USB flash drive or enter a retrieval code e-mailed to their BlackBerry smartphone into FedEx Office Print & Go machines and use the digital screens to select, preview and print Microsoft Word, Microsoft PowerPoint and Adobe PDF documents.

“With the launch of FedEx Office Print & Go, we are giving customers exactly what they have asked for—a convenient and simple way to convert digital content into printed material at FedEx Office locations across the country,” says Brian Philips, president and CEO, FedEx Office. “We are the clear leader in offering digital printing on-demand, anytime, anywhere. FedEx Office Print & Go, combined with our easy-to-use FedEx Office Print Online application and our network of 11 p.m. and 24-hour stores nationwide, means that our office is your office no matter what your deadline may be.”
