Ready for printing tutorial number 2?
“Ah, printing tutorial for WHAT? ” you ask
Well, a little over a week ago I posted my very first FREEBIE – a printable 2013 calendar all hand-painted by moi 😀
A few folks were having a hard time printing it to personal size so to help out some, my last post was about a printing tutorial.
You can find it here —–> Personal Size Printing Tutorial.
So today, I will talk about the A5 size printing.
Yes, A5s are not that big of a deal, but there are some little tweaks that you may like to know.
The easiest way to print an A5 book is to set your printer to “booklet” format and let it use its default paper, like this:
You see there that 11 x 8.5 inches is the printer’s default and the only thing I had to do was to select the “booklet” option.
So, if you print like that, you will end up with something like this:
Not bad, huh?
Well, now let’s look at this other one here:
See the difference?
Let me put them together so you can see it:
Yep, that’s right, the big white frame is all around on the “booklet” printing set up (which is the top one).
And for those of you living here in US, hence using US letter size as default, you will notice this happening (pointed at the right side):
Yep, when folded in half, the sheet is narrower then the orginal Filofax inserts which makes you see some parts of the pages underneath.
Maybe that doesn’t bother you? Sure thing that the big white frame makes it look all very neat!
But if you prefer to have all the boxes widen up as much as possible, and you don’t like the narrow page (for US folks), I would recommned printing them straight on A5 paper double sized.
To do that, just follow the instructions on the Personal Size Printing Tutorial changing all selections to A5.
I hope this helps getting your calendar in! 😀
Let me know if you have any questions in the comments.
Smooches and Happy Friday!
