How To / Double-Sided Printing

Using Double-Sided Printing

The EPSON Stylus Photo 2200 supports double-sided printing. There are two types of double-sided printing available. Standard double-sided printing allows you to print the odd-numbered pages first. Once these pages are printed, they can then be reloaded to print the even-numbered pages onto the opposite side of the paper. Folded Booklet double-sided printing allows you to make single-fold booklets. For more details about making single-fold booklets and double-sided printing, refer to Making Settings on the Layout Menu for Windows, or Making settings in the Page Setup dialog box for Macintosh.

Note:
  • The double-sided printing feature is not available when the printer is accessed over a network, or is used as a shared printer.
  • Depending on the media type, stacks of up to 30 sheets can be loaded into the sheet feeder during double-sided printing.
  • Only use media types which are suitable for double-sided printing. Otherwise, the printout quality may deteriorate.
  • Depending on the type of paper and the amount of ink used to print text and images, ink may bleed through to the other side of the paper.
  • The surface of the paper may be smeared during the double-sided printing.

Windows users will select the Double-Sided Printing check box from the Layout menu of the printer driver. To access your printer driver, see Accessing the printer software.

Macintosh users will select the Double-Sided Printing check box from the Page Setup dialog box. For information on making settings in this dialog box, see Printer Software Introduction.

Once the Double-Sided Printing check box is selected, the following settings are possible.

Margins

Click this button to open the Margins dialog box. This setting allows you to specify the edge where the binding will be placed. You can choose between Left, Top, and Right. You can also specify the width of the binding margin by entering a value in the Binding Margin text box.

Folded Booklet

Select this check box to make single-fold booklets. For more details on this feature, refer to Making Settings on the Layout Menu for Windows, or Making settings in the Page Setup dialog box for Macintosh.

Once you have made your settings, click OK to save them. Load paper in the sheet feeder, then send the print job from your application. The odd-numbered pages will print first (if Folded Booklet was not the selected setting). Instructions for generating the even-numbered pages will be displayed while the odd-numbered pages are output. Follow the instructions provided and click Resume.
