How can I use the "N in 1" Printing and "Poster" Printing capabilities?

n in 1 Printing
Using the Brother PCL driver, the 'n in 1' printing option can be used to reduce the amount of paper usage. Each printed page is automatically scaled down so that multiple pages can fit onto a single printed page. For example, if you have a 8 page document, that document can be printed so that all 8 pages appear on a single page, or over two pages etc. Depending on the driver that you are using, the minimum number of pages that can be reduced to a single page is 2 pages while maximum number of pages that can be reduced down to a single page is 32 pages.

 

Poster Printing
The same driver can be used to convert your documents into Posters. The Poster print option does this by enlarging your printed page and then printing it on several pieces of paper. When these pieces of paper are stuck together, a poster is created.
