Printing books in the Book Store section

All books in Conceptis Book Store are designed for home and office printers and are usually compatible with both Letter and A4 paper sizes. To find out which paper sizes to use, click the Info button next to the book you wish to download.

To view and print PDF books an Adobe Reader software must be installed on your computer. In case you don't already have Adobe Reader installed you can download a free copy here. Here are some tips how to save paper and ink:

  • Print on both sides of the pages to cut down paper use by half. Use double-sided (duplex) printing on supported printers or print even and odd pages separately as described here.
  • Use your printer's black & white printing option whenever puzzles themselves don't require color. This will save color ink on cover pages and any other pages where colors are used for graphical enhancement only.
  • If high quality printing is necessary you can still print the cover page in draft mode or even exclude the cover page entirely.
  • For more printing tips and trouble-shooting see Adobe Printing Tips.
