Set The Proper Margins First

Print the Front, the Back, and Double-sided

Here we describe the buttons you will need to press within the creator program, and the procedure you will need to follow so that you can print double-sided.
  1. Font: To print the front side of the cards press the Print Front button as you would normally print anything, after you set the margins, and such, as previously described.
  2. Back: To print the back side you will need to press the Print Back button.
  3. Double-sided: To print double-sided, first print the front side. You will then need to turn the page over with the front side facing up. Then print the back side using the same piece of paper. It may be necessary to experiment when you are loading the paper back into the printer because every computer/printer setup is different. The correct orientation of the paper must be found so the front side lines up properly with the back side.
