Poster Printing (Windows) - iP4820


Poster Printing

The poster printing function allows you to enlarge image data, divide it into several pages, and print these pages on separate sheets of paper. When the pages are pasted together, they form a large print like a poster.

The procedure for performing poster printing is as follows:

Setting Poster Printing

  1. Open the printer driver setup window

  2. Set poster printing

    Select Poster from the Page Layout list on the Page Setup tab.
    The current settings are displayed in the settings preview on the left side of the printer driver.

  3. Select the print paper size

    Select the size of the paper loaded in the printer from the Printer Paper Size list.
    Setting 2 by 2-page poster printing is complete.

  4. Set the number of image divisions and the pages to be printed

    If necessary, click Specify..., specify the following settings in the Poster Printing dialog box, and then click OK.

    Image Divisions

    Select the number of divisions (vertical x horizontal). As the number of divisions increases, the number of sheets used for printing increases, allowing you to create a larger poster.

    Print "Cut/Paste" in margins

    To leave out words "Cut" and "Paste", uncheck this check box.

    • This feature may be unavailable when certain printer drivers are used.

    Print "Cut/Paste" lines in margins

    To leave out cut lines, uncheck this check box.

    Print page range

    Specifies the printing range. Select All under normal circumstances.
    To reprint only a specific page, select Pages and enter the page number you want to print. To specify multiple pages, enter the page numbers by separating them with commas or by entering a hyphen between the page numbers.

    • You can also specify the print range by clicking the pages in the settings preview.

  5. Complete the setup

    Click OK on the Page Setup tab.
    When you execute print, the document will be divided into several pages during printing.
    After all poster pages have been printed, paste the pages together to create a poster.

Printing Only Specific Pages

If ink becomes faint or runs out during printing, you can reprint only the specific pages by following the procedure below:

  1. Set the print range

    In the settings preview on the left of the Page Setup tab, click the pages that do not need to be printed.
    The pages that were clicked are deleted, and only the pages to be printed are displayed.

    • Click the deleted pages to display them again.

    • Right-click the settings preview to select Print all pages or Delete all pages.

  2. Complete the setup

    After completing the page selection, click OK.
    When you execute print, only specified pages will be printed.

  • When Poster is selected, the Duplex Printing, Staple Side and Print from Last Page appear grayed out and are unavailable.

  • Since poster printing enlarges the document when printing it, the print results may become coarse.
