Printing

The file looks great on the screen but when I go to print the pictures or words don’t look right?

Maybe you have black boxes or the words look like a bunch of symbols?  There is a good chance (like 99.9% chance) that you just need to make sure that you update your PDF reader.

I recommend Acrobat by Adobe – the free version for opening and printing PDF files.  This is the PDF reader I personally use.  Using an updated version of this should solve this problem!

I’m trying to print front to back but the words are coming out wrong?

Make sure you have your printer settings adjusted correctly.  If you are printing with the resource being vertical on the paper make sure you are “flipping the paper on the long side” or wording similar to that when printing back to front.

If you are printing and the resource is horizontal on the page make sure you are “flipping the paper on the short side” or wording similar to that in your printer settings.

This should take care of any front to back printing issues you may have!

Printing Tips

Several of Pink Oatmeal’s task cards and yoga cards come in 2 cards per page. There is a way to print them so that you get more than 2 cards per page.

Open your PDF file open in Adobe Acrobat.  Next, select print. Now you want to make sure your settings are set up so that you actually print 2 pages on one page.

Under page scaling you want to set your page to multiple pages per sheet.  That will pull up the option That will pull up the pages per sheet option.

Under that I like to set this at custom and do 1 by 2.  I have the Page Order set as horizontal. You can play around with these settings to make the print out look the way you want it.  You can see the preview to the right so you know what your print out is going to look like.

Printing Front to Back

Pink Oatmeal has many sets of cards that also have the option to print front to back. It is important to note that if the picture is in landscape format that you must flip it on the short side when printing. If in portrait format you would flip on the long edge.
