    Default How to create an PDF to print business cards

    We got some request about this issues from users.
    So here is a small howto.

    1) Create an image of your business card in your favorite program
    2) Open the image in IrfanView
    3) Select save as and then pdf
    4) Set some ImPDF options
    4a) In the "Layout" tab set the size of the paper you like to print to
    4b) Set the page border
    4c) In the "Tiles" tab select "RxC tiles, one image"
    4d) Enter the number of rows and columns you like to use
    4e) If there should be a distance between your cards add a tile border
    4f) Verify that in the tile area you get the size of your business card
    4g) "In the "Compression" tab check the quality (lossless is the best)
    5) Save
    6) Print the resulting PDF with your favorite PDF viewer.
    Be careful to print without scaling the page

    Excellent!
    Its: Belongs to "It"
    It's: Shortened form of "It is"
    ---------------------
    Lose: Fail to keep
    Loose: Not tight

    ---------------------
    Plurals do not require apostrophes
