3 Print Utilities I Use Nearly Every Day

0  comments

These print utilities make my life easier every day. Each one has a free and paid version, and I use the free versions currently.

Fine Print.

This awesome utility allows you to:

  • Bring up a print job and view it before you print (similar to print preview)
  • Delete pages that you don’t want to print
  • Shrink pages and print multiple pages on on page (2, 4, or 8 pages)
  • Manual duplexing if you don’t have an automatic duplex printer

I usually choose 2 or 4 pages, depending on the print size. It really cuts down on the paper, especially when using duplex.

They don’t really advertise the free/trial version, which prints a small banner at the bottom of every page.

PDF Redirect

I have tried many PDF creation utilities, and PDF Redirect works the best for me. One feature I really like is the ability to combine multiple PDFs into one document.

If you’ve never used one of these before, they allow you to create a PDF document instead of printing.

Faststone Capture

This is a “print screen” utility, and I absolutely love it!

It allows you to:

  • Print the whole screen, the active window, or a portion you select
  • Print it or save it
  • Crop and resize

The current version of Faststone is no longer free, but you can download a prior version from:

All of these utilities will cut down on your paper consumption, if used properly.

Let me know how they work for you!
