Re: How do I get 4 postcards per page (blank -- me create)

If all the cards will be different. File, page setup, landscape. Arrange, zero
margins, grid guides, 2 columns, 2 rows. zero spacing. Understand your printer's
margin limitations.

If all the cards will be the same, page setup, postcards. If you are using 2007,
use the first landscaped Avery template.

Re: How do I get 4 postcards per page (blank -- me create)

I see how to do what you said in the first paragraph, but not the second.
When I go to Avery, it doesn't arrange my postcard. Is it supposed to?
BTW--when I go to Pub Help and type in postcards, I just get 50 million
references to templates. I want to know how to do something. Why doesn't
publisher give me that info or give it to me first?
Thank you for your help.

When you use the Avery template, there will be one postcard on your screen.
After you design this card, look at print preview, all four cards will be the
same.

Re: How do I get 4 postcards per page (blank -- me create)

For whatever reason, this does not work. However, I have figured out a way
around this which I'll post to help anyone else with this problem.

To make a postcard:

1.Choose 8 ½ by 11, landscape.
2. Set margins to zero.
3. Drag the ruler to create your margins.
4. Copy the postcard 3X onto the same page in your document.
5. Drag each postcard to the appropriate margin.

If, for whatever reason, you want to turn two of the postcards so that they
are printing upside down, then

1.Choose 8 ½ by 11, landscape.
2. Set margins to zero.
3. Drag the ruler to create your margins.
4. Copy the postcard onto the same page in your document.
5. Rotate the postcard. If you use Flip, it will not be an exact duplicate.
6. Copy the rotated postcard and another of the right-side up postcards.
7. Drag each postcard to the appropriate margin.
