Print 2 A5 on A4 page

Post by diego.acquani » Tue Oct 24, 2017 2:17 pm

Hi All,
I need to print the same sscc label twice (A5 size), but on a page with A4 size.
Is it possible?
Because I set up the label with the A5 size and the printer driver is configured to print it, but i have only half page printed with 2 pages.
I think nicelabel send the print twice, so they are 2 differente print.

How can i do?

I attached theactual printed page (i would like to have the same copy on the right of the page)

Hi,

basically, you need to prepare a "stock" design, where you will have a size of an A4 paper, and then you will set the label size to A5, with the horizontal count of 2, so that two labels will be printed on one sheet of paper.

This description might be very confusing, but if you are familiar with NiceLabel software it might help you. If not, please let us know exact version and edition of NiceLabel which you are using, so that we can provide you with a better answer.

The template (attached) now is a A5 label. I need to print this A5 twice, on a A4 page.

Alright, thanks for the label. I checked it, and I have a simple guide for you:

1. You need to open "Label Setup" by double-clicking somewhere blank on the label. This will open "Label Setup".

2. Go to "Paper layout" and select "A4" as the page size.

3. Go to "Dimensions" and set the Width to half of an A4, which is 14.85, so one label will be of a size of an A5 width. Also increase "Columns" to 2, so that two labels of A5 size will be printed on one A4 page.

Hi,

the margin comes from the printer driver, and cannot be removed with user interaction. This margin simply shows you where the printer will be able to print, so you must place objects inside the margins.
