The Ink+Volt 2018 Planner PDF is now for sale! Get yours today.

By default, the Ink+Volt 2018 Planner is easy to print at home on standard, letter size paper.  The following tips are for more complex printing tasks: duplex printing, which prints the planner on half-size sheets of paper, and booklet printing, which allows you to cut or fold down the middle for back-to-back reading. 

Duplex printing

To print the planner on half-size sheets of paper. You can print multiple pages to a sheet. To keep the order of pages, print the first page separately. Print the rest of the pages from 2 on.

Booklet printing

Booklet printing is a form of duplex printing that is useful if you want to print the full PDF so that the pages are in order if folded down the middle. For instance, page 1 is printed next to page 69, page 2 is printed next to page 68, and so on…

Please note that these instructions for booklet printing are for double-sided printing. If you don’t have a duplex printer, you may need to take additional steps. We recommend printing a small selection first to test your printer settings.
