While a paperless office is still a dream to many, an application such as Fine Print 11.27 can optimize the printing process so as to save both paper and ink. With a long history behind it, Fine Print11.27 provides a universal print previewer that comes with various tools for handling large content and print jobs.

Following a brief setup, Fine Print 11.27 is installed in Windows  as a virtual printer, available whenever you choose to print a document, no matter the application you are using. Hitting the “Print” button and saving the document to file is the way to go if you want to access the Fine  Print 11.27 interface and its options.

Print without wasting ink

FinePrint features various options that help you improve the printing process. First of all, the printing preview window makes it possible for you to add text to the page and crop page sections. In other words, editing is possible although FinePrint is not, in fact, a text editor. Moreover, you can permanently erase pages you don’t need and insert new blank pages in between existing ones.

In order to save ink, FinePrint can convert the entire document to grayscale (which converts all the text to black) or lighten the content. Furthermore, it can automatically remove all inserted graphics and text sections.

Save paper with FinePrint

Handling print jobs is easy with FinePrint, as the application allows you to archive, sign and mark them up. Documents can be printed on both sides of the paper to save resources. Another way to save paper is by printing multiple pages on a single sheet of paper.

There is also an option to print all the pages in reverse order, which comes in handy if you are dealing with a large document, with numerous pages. Additional features enable FinePrint to print the electronic letterhead of documents.

Optimize document printing

FinePrint is one of those tools any office employee appreciates. It makes document printing much economic and easy to handle, providing the tools you need to optimize the printing process

Fine Print 11.27 Details

Many computers are supplied with a printer, but even when this is not the case, one can be bought very cheaply. But the hidden cost of printer ownership lies in the use of paper and ink which can quickly become very expensive. Fine Print11.27 has been designed to reduce the cost of printer ownership by mini mising paper and ink usage.

One of the simplest ways Fine Print 11.27 provides to minimise the use of paper and ink is the option to print multiple pages on a single sheet of paper. Many multi-page documents can be print so that two, four or even more pages are on a single sheet of paper while remaining fully legible. There is also the option of reducing page border size and eliminating unwanted page elements to further reduce the use of resources.

Several print jobs can be combined into one to reduce the amount of white space that is left on the page, and the program also includes the option to automatically add a letterhead to printouts as well as making use of double sided printing. Fine Print 11.27 appears as a standard printer when you select the Print option from any program and selecting it provides access to the various settings. This is a program which will pay for itself in next to no time, and as well as saving you money in the long run, you can rest safe in the knowledge that you are also doing your bit for the environment.
