Printing tips — A monochrome laser printer is best, especially if photocopying the print-out. On a colour printer use a grayscale o/p. Use "auto-rotate & centre" option. Try to print at 100%, i.e. no "auto-shrink". If you encounter problems try the "Print as image" option. The design is better on coloured paper, e.g. green.
