I'm just wandering what the best way to go about printing the .pdf is. I ask as the full color cover page is not 8.5 x 11, and the actual words and such in the main book file are much smaller than that as well, so I'm wandering if anyone has come up with a way to print the whole thing out so they are the same size and basically binding them together.

I'm willing to simply stick the whole thing in a binder, but the cover page wouldn't really be the right size.

I'm referring to DitV, by the way. Sorry about the omission.

Without being intimately familiar with the DiV pdf version, what's wrong with the automatic scaling most Adobe pdf viewers do? "Fit to page" is the name of the option, I believe.

The pdf version is the one I print from.

The cover is legal-sized, 8.5"x14", centered on the spine. The book is 5.5"x8.5", half letter-sized. My print shop prints it two pages to the sheet, chops it, wraps the cover around, and trims off the excess.

For home printing, I'd do two pages per sheet for the book, and I dunno what with the cover. Print it on legal and hand cut it, I guess.

Awesome. Thanks. I'll probably talk to a guy I know who works at Kinko's and see how much that would cost. I printed the whole thing out on letter-sized - just one page to one page, duplexed and put it in a binder, but I'd prefer to have it bound a bit better and be able to use the cover page.

BTW - Vincent - in regards to copywrite, do I need to destroy the binder-copy, or can I use that as a reference for the players when I play?
