If you’re writing a long paper or report that is going to need to be printed either multiple times, or for multiple people, then the amount of paper that you will be using could be a concern. Long documents can use a surprising amount of paper, which might be something that you wish to minimize either due to a lack of paper, or for environmental concerns.

One way to mitigate this problem is by printing more than one page per sheet of paper. While this is going to make the text on the pages smaller, it’s usually not a big enough issue to justify the need to print everything at full size. If you would like to see which print setting to change so that you can do this multi-page printing per sheet, continue below.
