Print the PDF. Fold each page down the middle along the dotted vertical line and cut the solid horizontal lines.

If your printer has a special "duplex" option, you can use it to automatically print double-sided. However for most printers, you need to:

**Print the "odd-numbered" pages first**- Feed the printed pages back into the printer
- Print the "even-numbered" pages

**If your printer prints pages face up**, you may need to tell your printer to reverse the order when printing the even-numbered pages.

Please use the "Open PDF" button to print your set.

**Why?**
In order to provide a consistent printing experience across different computers and web browsers, we've provided a standard PDF format for you to print.
