Do you know about booklet printing?

I need to make a confession. I may have a problem.

I'm addicted to booklet printing. 


Last Spring at the start of the term I was fretting about whether to give paper copies of my syllabus or stick only with the online version. 

I may be kidding myself, but I am trying to use a well-formatted layout for the syllabus so that it is easy and welcoming to read. I know not all students will read it, but I want to remove as many barriers as possible. 

The real issue was the page count. I had 80 students and an 8-page syllabus to hand out. Even double-sided, that's a lot. 

Enter booklet printing. 

It's an option on Adobe Acrobat to print foldable booklets. That puts four pages on a single sheet of paper. What's that? You don't want to hand out super small booklets made on standard sheets of paper? Print on legal paper - then each page is 8.5" by 7". 

I do TIPER packets this way and other random handouts that I create for my classes. Now practically everything is booklet printed. We save paper and the multiple sheets are easier to keep together. 

What do you booklet print?
