Making Booklets

Geeze, I love the internet! Somehow I'm able to find just the right tools to accomplish the task at hand. I needed a way to turn the Matrimonial Primer into a booklet and found this tool.
The instruction page is very clear and offers printing instructions.
The instruction page had a link to this PDF creator

I ran the BookletCreator with an uncleaned copy of the pdf download of The Matrimonial Primer. It worked beautifully! I am still undecided about using the color or black and white copy. The b&w copy did not have the beautiful end papers showing and the lovely sepia fill color is a dead grey.

  1. This is super helpful! One of my favorite things to do is to make books (about most anything) and I've always done the layout and everything by fiddling around on my computer. Your information would really save me time and organize it all in a much smarter way.

  3. I'm not amazing...my skills are low compared to so many. I look for the most simple tools I can find that don't involve buying graphic software.

  5. Amanda,

    Oh! I get it now. Did you mean that you did the layout by hand
    I didn't print it yet. Just viewed it onscreen. I'm curious; did you choose the color or b&w?
    I don't want to print it until I open it in a picture program and try to get some of the library markings off the images.

  8. Photoshopped out the various marks and then printed out the colour version on lovely creamy paper. Looks a treat. Perfect for the wedding celebration mixed-media-tag-book thingy that I am working on. Just need to figure out the best way to bind the signatures together and what sort of cover to make.
