How to Print a Booklet in Microsoft Publisher

You can create a folded booklet with an 8.5 by 11-inch page and print it on your home printer if it is capable of printing an 11×17-inch sheet of paper. This step-by-step guide uses the 8.5×11 standard US letter size, but you can use the same strategy for any publication with pages that are half the size of the paper.

  • Step 1: Open the Booklet File in Microsoft Publisher

    Start your Microsoft Publisher program and open the booklet that you want to be printed. To open the file, go to the File tab and click on Open. Locate the file on your computer or type in the name of the file in the “File name” field to find it quickly. Select the file and click the Open button.

  • Step 2: Click on the File Tab and Choose the Print Option

    Once the booklet that you want to print is opened, you go to the File tab of the Publisher ribbon and click on the Print option.

  • Step 3: Make the Appropriate Adjustments Needed for Printing the Booklet and Start Printing

    In the Print window, select the right printer to print the booklet and set the number of copies to be printed on every page of your booklet. You make any appropriate adjustments in the Settings section, such as choosing Tabloid or 11×17 inches as the printed paper size for the booklet. Additionally, you can check every page in your booklet on the “Preview” screen. Finally, click the Print button to start the printing process.

What if my printer doesn’t support two-sided printing?

If your printer doesn’t support two-sided printing, you can use manual two-sided printing; this way, Microsoft Publisher prints the first and last pages on one sheet of paper, the second and next-to-last on another sheet, and so on (the pages will still be in the correct sequence when you photocopy them back-to-back, fold, and then bind or staple them together).
