How to Print Liners
Thank you to Alyson Sadofsky for these directions.
Instructions for sizing/printing high-res JPEGs etc
Most PCs come with some kind of software for
printing images. The most
common to name would be quark, pagemaker, publisher,
powerpoint, and Microsoft Word. Eqivalents such as
Claris, etc all
work on the same lines.
- Select your picture/image box icon and draw a square or
rectangle. Double-click inside the image box and find the file.
Or, go to 'insert' 'insert picture' and find the file.
- When the file has appeared it will probably be at
the wrong size. Click on the image so that the box is selected (if
it isn't already). Cursors/marks of some description will appear at the
corner and sides (usually white or black boxes). Placing the mouse cursor over one of these boxes,
and clicking with the left mouse button will enable you to resize the
image. Some programs also have a resizing option on the menu bar (usually
under 'object' or 'format') where you can type in percentages or dimensions.
- Most progams will have some sort of dimension toolbar/box, telling you
the length and width of the item you've selected, but if not, you can
use the rulers on the toolbar to check against.
- Drag the image box to the following sizes:
It may be easier for countries still using the imperial measurement
system (i.e. inches) to change the measurement options to cm before
doing this. Check the 'edit'>'preferences', 'preferences', 'options' or
'tools' choices on the menu.
- Tape Liners: width 16.4cm/6.46" Height:10.1cm/3.98"
- CD Liners:
- (front/fold)width: 24.6cm/9.68" Height:12.1cm/4.76"
- (back/traycard)width:15cm/5.9" Height:11.8cm/4.6"
Note - the above measurements do not have to be exact, as a a few mm
either way will not drastically alter the image. However, where the CD
cases are concerned, 12.1cm height for the front/fold and 11.8cm (or
11.9 if using thinner paper) for the back traycard seem to be the
maxiumum measurements for fitting.
- Print as normal
