Print as a Booklet Automatically (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 at the center of the print output without having to change the order of the printed pages.
  • Make sure the jam clear 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 thin, it may wrinkle.
  1. Select the print command in your application.
  2. Select Brother MFC-XXXX Printer (where XXXX is the name of your model), and then click the printing properties or preferences button.
    The printer driver window appears.
  3. Click the Basic tab.
  4. In the Orientation field, select the Portrait or Landscape option to set the orientation of your printout.

    Every page will be printed in booklet format (four pages to every piece of paper, two pages per side). Fold your printout in the middle to create the booklet.
    Divide into Sets
    This option prints the whole booklet in smaller individual booklet sets, allowing you to fold at the center of the smaller individual booklet sets without having to change the order of the printed pages. You can specify the number of sheets in each smaller booklet set (from 1-15). This option can be helpful when folding a printed booklet that has a large number of pages.
