Tutorial for double-sided printing?

Postby Dead End King » September 27th, 2014, 10:00 am

I'm making multi page booklets for my CD, and I want to minimize trial and error as much as possible cuz ink and high quality paper aren't exactly cheap. If there is another thread regarding this topic, or a recommended video on YouTube or something of the like, I would appreciate a link. Thank you in advance.

Hi

All our video tutorials can be found on this page:

If you are unsure about printing, you can always try to print on regular paper, and see if there are any questions or problems. After sorting them out, print on high quality paper.

My printer slides the page 2mm from the top when doing the second side. This results in one side having a white strip and having too much cut off of the other end. How can I make the program adjust for this? Printer btw is Canon Pixma MG7120

Our program doesn't have any tool to correct this offset.

If you used the duplex printing feature, try to:
1. Switch from long edge binding to short edge binding, or vice versa.
2. Try to flip paper manually (don't use duplex printing).

Additionally, you can activate the bleeds feature. In the Print dialog of Disc Cover, click on the Options button and set the Bleed Size to 3 mm (greater than the offset). To have the bleed area filled with the background image, you need to extend it outside the design element border by 3 mm or more.
