Before printing our homeschool resources, check out theses steps:
• Clean printer nozzles and do a test print before printing products
• Save the files to your computer and open the PDF in Adobe Acrobat Reader. Printing from within this program will eliminate most printing troubleshoot issues. Make sure your device AND the Adobe Acrobat Reader are up-to-date. If you don’t have this on your device, you can download it for free —HERE—
• I recommend printing on 67lb or heavier weight cardstock printing paper
What type of paper should I use?
We recommend using 67lb or heavier cardstock to print all posters, art work, and other pages for stability & quality. You can see the types we use HERE
What type of printer do you use?
We use an Epson EcoTank ET-3760. Though we recommend any Epson printer as they have had the best results for us personally. Research the functions that are important to your printing needs: Printing front & back, easy ink refilling, scanners, etc. You can see the one we use HERE
Having Black Boxes around the images?
OR are the images not print at all?
Here are a few quick tips to ensure you are able to print without issue:
First-- Save the files to your computer (other devices such as phones or tablets can cause printing complications) and open the PDF in Adobe Acrobat Reader. Printing from within this program will eliminate most printing troubleshoot issues.
Next-- make sure your computer AND the Adobe Acrobat Reader are up-to-date. If you don’t have this on your device, you can download it for free —HERE—
Lastly-- Print a test page first to ensure the issues are resolved.
Still having issues?
Some users may still have trouble despite following the instructions above. If that is the case, the other option is to choose "print as image". Open the resource in Adobe and then:
+ Choose File –> Print
+ Click on Advanced
+ Check the “Print as Image” box
+ Click Print
If you are a Mac user, you may need to bypass Preview as your default PDF opener.
How to do this:
Ctrl + Click on the file name
In the drop down menu choose:
Open With –> Adobe Acrobat Reader.
