Using imposition to reduce printing time and costs (Double)

"Double" is an imposition setting in which the same page is printed twice on a single sheet.

By stacking printed sheets and cutting them along their center line, it is possible to produce two copies of a page from one sheet.

This saves both printing time and paper costs.

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.

One of the two pages to be arranged on each side of a sheet is rotated.

The printed sheets are cut, and then the cut edges are aligned.
