Transition: Pass it on!
These two mini-zines inform and inspire in six pages (read them onscreen at right as slide show)--and you can make them yourself, following the tips below. Thanks to Transition in a Nutshell Press, aka Regula and Michael Russelle.
To make your own copies:
Send it to print, pausing at the "Print" dialog box onscreen. Choose these options:
for Orientation, choose "Auto" or "Landscape" (rather than "Portrait")
for Page Scaling, choose "None" or "100%"
Choose "2-sided," then "Long-edge binding" (if these options apply for your printer) *
3. Follow the fold-and-cut directions in the margin of the printed sheet.
* If not, print it one side at a time (flipping the sheet as needed), or print two single-sided sheets and then photocopy one onto the back of the other.
