How to print these pamphlets out
To Print Zines:
(***Note**** if zines have odd page numbers then they have a cover page. Print the cover page separately)
Most pamphlets are designed for 8.5 x 11 inch paper. They are designed to be folded in the middle. if you have two sided printing, print on both sides. Make sure your printer's margins are set to zero.
For Duplex printing (printing on both sides) choose "advanced" then "flip on short edge."
Some zines are printed vertically on a 8.5" x 11" piece of paper.
Duplex printers choose "advanced" and "flip on long edge" for zines laid out vertically.
If you do NOT have two sided printing, follow these steps:
2) hit the print button
3) in the print dialogue box where it says "subset", choose "odd pages" then print.
4) collect the pages and put them back in the printer in the same order if your printer pulls from the bottom of the paper stack.
If your printer pulls from the top of the paper stack reverse the order of the pages. (how you put them back in depends on the printer you use.
most printers have you put the pages back in face up with the page top facing the printer's left.
print out a test page to see if everything is rightside up. then print out the whole pamphlet)
5) in the print dialogue box where it says "subset", choose "even pages" then print
It will be a little tricky at first, but hang in there. Please give us suggestions on how to improve these instructions.
we've noticed that PDF files are not images of pages, but are altered by your computer. pamphlets that look good on our computers may not look good on yours. If you do not have certain fonts, PDf files can look like a mess. Some of our older pamphlets suffer from this problem. we are now using basic fonts that almost everyone has.
We've also noticed that some of the pictures in our pamphlets may be too dark when printed. that could be your printer's settings. Again we are learning from our mistakes. If you have suggestions to bring up the quality and universalness of these pamphlets, please let us know. we are also looking for translators.
