Booklet printing

Printer / Copier 'jcolor' is capable to fold and stamp printouts to create booklets / brochures.

  • Mulitple Copies: DO NOT USE 'copies' (print dialog or via commandline '-n num-copies'). Instead use 'Repeat jobs' under advanced options.
  • Up to 16 sheets of paper can be stitched! If you have more they only get folded.
  • Printing booklet with only folding (no stamps), might produce outputs where the single folded sheets of paper are one by one and not inserted into each other.

lpBooklet.sh -n <number_of_copies> -m <A4|A5> -f <file.pdf>
