Have you ever been frustrated with figuring out how to print double sided? Maybe you want to print something like the dated version of the Sweet Life Planner so that it’s back to back without any blank pages, but you kind of dread all the trial and error involved. I’m sharing my quick and easy tip to ensure that you don’t have go through a bunch of trial and error and waste ink and paper every time you want to print something back to back.
I thought the best way to show you my method was to, well, SHOW you via video. Click play to watch this short video:
If you don’t have a chance to watch the video, here’s a quick synopsis:
Step 1 – I didn’t even mention this in the video, but I actually find it easier to avoid my printers automatic double sided printing in many cases because it doesn’t work in some situations.
Step 2 – I create a test page where I write a headline on the top of a blank page to pretend like that’s the way it’s printed. I then guess at how it should go in the printer and draw a couple arrows in the direction that I’m putting the page in. If it doesn’t work, I repeat the process but choosing a different direction to put the paper in.
Step 3 – Once it’s correct, I just save the page next to printer so I always know how to put the paper in. (I also created a sideways test case in case the text is going sideways on the page).
