Using imposition to reduce printing time and costs (Speed)

"Speed" is an imposition style in which two pages are arranged and printed on each side of a sheet.

The printed sheets are then stacked and cut down the center to make the final document.

As multiple pages are created per cut sheet, printing time and costs can be reduced.

Specify this setting on the [Imposition/Paper Type Settings] screen.

Note that this explanation outlines the imposition and finishing settings. For details about a specific setting, see the on-screen balloon help that appears when you click the Icon illustration button.
