How can I print brochure correctly in Publisher


R

RedCattledogs

I created the brochure in Publisher, and then sent it to the professional
Printer. THey could not figure out how to print the brochure correctly.
They used the printer that printed both sides, and the back side came out
upside down. Then they tried to change the printing setting, and it came out
with 4 pages on one page.
I need to send out this brochure ASAP, and Your help is appreciated!

I use Publisher 2002.

Send the file over to me - let me see if it's the file or the printer.

Thank you. But the file is huge (9M), and containspeople's info, so I cannot
send it.
I appreciate your offer. THe document services tried it with three
different printers without success.

So if everything is ok, xerox/canon professional printer would have printed
the pages of brochures w/o problem?

Thank you

I'd suggest the printer make sure he is using the latest drivers. Publisher
can be very picky about drivers. Also, have you tried converting it to a
..pdf and see if that shows up upside down?

This sounds nothing like a Publisher or driver problem to me. Assuming that
this job is being output on some type of digital copier/press 1-up, it
simply requires the printer to select the correct duplexing mode on the
machine. If it is a Fiery-driven engine this would mean selecting
"short-edge binding" instead of the default "long-edge binding" Other terms
are also used for these settings, such as "calendar mode" and "book mode".
