Be sure to give yourself plenty of time to get set up when printing at home. With the right preparation, printing your stationery can be a simple and enjoyable process! Please follow these step-by-step instructions.
1. Select file > print.
2. Change the paper size in your printer settings.
In your printer settings/properties/preferences, change the paper size from 8.5 x 11 to the size of your stationery. If you don’t see the size you need, create a custom page size. If you are not sure what
***********If you are having problems setting the paper size, please consult your printer’s manual or the manufacturer’s website for further instructions. Each printer’s settings are unique to the manufacturer and model of the printer, so getting this information directly from the manufacturer will ensure that you receive the most relevant and useful information.
3. Check the scale.
If “fit to page” is an option in your printer settings, make sure that it is not selected.
4. Check the paper type.
If your printer’s settings have the option to select a type of paper, choose cardstock or the equivalent.
5. Always do a test print.
If you need to test your settings more than once, use the same test sheet over again or make additional test sheets by trimming a plain sheet of paper to the size of your project. Test printing allows you to check the alignment and which way your paper should be loaded into your printer (face up, face down, etc.).
6. Manually feed the paper into your printer.
Placing a stack of stationery in the printer’s tray increases the chance of a paper jam. You can send the whole job at once, just place one sheet in the tray at a time.
