How to print MANY pages of a PDF file on one sheet of paper.

As teachers, we often need to push our printers to the max to get the most bang for our buck. Inkjet printer ink is expensive, and paper can be hard to come by, too. Here is a trick that will let you print as up to sixteen pages per sheet of paper - useful for things like printing notes or making word wall cards come out just the right size for our bulletin boards.

Adobe Reader makes it easy to print more than one page per sheet. Open the PDF file you want to print. Then go to File > Print or click the Print button. In the dialog that appears, look for these options.

Click on the "Multiple" button. Then you can experiment endlessly with the custom settings to get the results you want.
