Assembling the Booklets
« on: October 27, 2011, 11:41:19 PM »
Hey Vx, etc.

How do you actually print and bind these booklets? They seem to be in spreads, but in proper sequence like 1-2, 3-4, 5-6... so I can't figure out what I'm supposed to do with them. I was hoping to print them double-sided, fold, and staple, but that seems impossible with this set up.

Maybe I'm just missing something.

They're half-letter landscape. 2 entries per page, 4 per spread.

For printing booklets, I use the file with the MC book on the top of the page and the player book on the bottom, I forget what I named it. -stackforprinting.pdf or something. Anyway:
1. Print it 2-sided.
2. Smack 4 staples into it along the spine edge.
3. Cut the whole stack in half to make 2 booklets.
No folding.

I don't have a printer big enough for 11x17 paper, which is what you'd need to saddle-staple and fold the booklets. I don't imagine that many of us do.

Oh, but don't print it up nice yet! I have a few small corrections to make. I'll release a corrected PDF this weekend.
