Print as a Booklet (Windows®)

Use this option to print a document in booklet format using 2-sided printing. The document's pages will be arranged according to the correct page number and will allow you to fold the print output at the center, without having to change the order of the printed pages.


  • Select Letter, Legal, Mexico Legal, India Legal or Folio sized paper when using the automatic 2-sided printing function.
  • Make sure the back cover is closed.
  • If paper is curled, straighten it and put it back in the paper tray.
  • Use regular paper or thin paper. DO NOT use bond paper.
  • If the paper is too thin, it may wrinkle.
  • When you use the manual 2-sided printing function, it is possible there may be paper jams or poor print quality.

  2. Select Brother [model name], and then click the printing properties or preferences button.
    The printer driver window appears.

    If your application contains a similar setting, we recommend that you set the orientation using the application.
