    Hi,

    Just getting in to the swing of printing coupons and was wondering about the Cow & Gate and CIF vouchers as the actual coupon is really big and take up either a whole page or half a page. Can you change the size of the coupon or would that invalidate it? Just don't fancy handing over huge coupons!


    With the Cow & Gate, both CIFS, the Warby's Milk Roll, the Heinz babyfood and the PDF Bacofoil one, I print them so they come out about a quarter of an A4 sheet in size, and double sided (colour of course, to avoid most accusations of photocopying). They are always accepted and look 'non-internety'. You end up with good-sized mocs with just one easily scannable barcode on one side and relevant pics & headings on the other.

    When you click on file & print, when the print window appears just change the 'fit to page' drop-down menu to 'multiple pages per sheet' instead (this may be different for some pcs and printers, but this is what I see). Then select ether 2 or 4 multiples (depends on the moc - strangely they differ) so you can see in the preview that it will fill half the page.

    Print one on each A4 sheet you plan to use, it will take up half a page. Then represent the same paper 3 times, turning and reversing it each time so that the moc prints twice on both sides. It may take practice until you are certain which way to represent your paper but you will soon know (trial and error!).

    Then you can cut out FOUR double-sided coupons from each A4 sheet, with the barcode part on one side and the picture & blurb on the other. Just make sure you concentrate on one coupon at a time, or you could end up getting pics of Cow & Gate on the back of your CIF mocs!

    HTH and hope it makes sense.
    PRIVATE 'PCN'? DON'T PAY BUT DON'T IGNORE IT (except N.Ireland).

    dont know about you all but just got my self a rotory trimmer form wilkinsons 9.98 bargain as i ave problems using sissors being left handed i found this brill and my dishwasher tabs 1.70 and change from my coupons

    Oh! Another person in their right mind!! I too am a lefty but not a "complete" lefty as I only write left handed. I do a few other things left handed but most of those other things I can do with my right hand as well (comes in handy when I'm painting as I can do that with both hands - would be great if I could use both hands at the same while painting:rolleyes:). So did you ever hear that about being in your right mind? The left side of your brain operates the right side of your body and the right side of your brain operates the left side, hence making us in our right mind!!

    nanna38, any chance of strinking your post into one post. ie: just cut & paste your post 1st 3/4 post by editing it. This will give us more space before Browntoa closed it down & create another new thread. I always try to strink my post if I can.
