Printing tips

Do not download and print from Adobe (could result in measure issues). Simply print the pdf from your browser, so you can size the output correctly. Do not "shrink to fit" etc, but rather print the image at 100% size. Always double check and test your paper printout by using a U.S. Dollar bill ( exactly 156 millimeters = 15.6 centimeters) , or some other standard sized object as a measure. Make some free printable rulers the easy way!
