Happy Saturday everyone! I wanted to share a little trick I learned recently when looking through the print options on Adobe Reader–printing poster-size!!
This isn’t something I really use often, thanks to our document camera (I’ve only printed poster size for Stephanie’s FabulousBeyondWords Calendar Math) BUT it is great for something you want to laminate and write on many times.
So, in case this is new information to you as well, here are the steps.
1. Open the pdf you would like to enlarge.
2. Click on File and Print.
3. Under the option for Page Scaling, choose Tile All Pages:
4. Change the size of the document by increasing the Tile Scale (I used 175% as shown below):
5. Check off the Cut Marks box (shown just above) so you will have guides to use for cutting. They will show up like little crosshairs (as you can see just under that swirly border):
The only downfall is, with the resizing, you may end up with some extra white space at the top of your document…
But that large visual is such a great tool, I don’t mind in the case of a couple of documents.
Once I have it all printed, I cut the pages with a paper trimmer, glue on a posterboard, and laminate!
Do you ever print poster-size? Do you have any tips or tricks to share with us? Thanks for reading 🙂
