The Descriptions and images below have been added to help you
figure out how your printer works. If you understand this, it will help you
when printing 2 sided pages, as is required with our half fold cards.
These are the 2 most common types of inkjet printers.
( Consult your owners manual for your printer to get exact details )
Both of these printers will print the screen on your computer from top to bottom.
If you watch the printer, you'll see the top of the page coming out first.
The end of the paper that faces the printer in the feed tray, will be the first end
to come out, and will print as the top of the page.
We have a variety of images for the outside of the cards,
picture or greeting on the front, small logo on the back.
These page are all laid out so that the main card image is right side up and
you won't have to stand on your head to view it prior to printing.
We have 9 text pages for these cards that us the same format as all
of our other customizable items. These are in 9 different colors, so
you can choose the color of text that you want for the inside of the card.
Black, Blue, Brown, Gray, Green, Pink, Purple, Red, & Turquoise.
You want the text to end up on the opposite side of our logo, on
your finished card. Read carefully the following steps.
If you print the inside text first, feed the bottom end
of the text page into the printer when you
print the image on the other side.
(We prefer to print the text first in order to check spelling, grammar, and print
quality. This will save you a little ink if there is a mistake.)
If you print the outside image of the card first, feed
the main image or picture end into the printer first
when you print the text on the other side.
We have a good low ink usage card to practice with on our
first page of half fold cards.
It uses black ink and will work fine on cheap paper for practice.
It also may help to use a pencil to make a small x on the
practice card, to figure out the orientation of your printer.
Be sure to read tips on printing to learn how to keep from printing
the url, (web address) and page numbers on the top and bottom of your cards.
