Helpful hint: If you'd rather not have full-page cards, you may be able to print two cards per page simply by adjusting your printer settings. Depending on the type of printer you use, if you go to your print screen and select the "Page Size and Handling" option (or "Print Preferences" screen), you can choose how many slides you'd like to print per page. PLEASE NOTE: This option may not be available for all printers.
