How to Make a Booklet on a Sharp Copier

As Copeco’s customer service trainer, I have a long list of copier and printer FAQs. One question I often get is how to turn letter-size documents into a booklet or pamphlet. If you’ve got a digital Sharp copier, the answer is easy. It only takes a couple clicks on the touch screen, and the copier takes care of the rest.

Schools, churches and similar organizations frequently use this option because booklet publications made in house can help save on outsourcing of small print projects. Many MFPs (multifunction printers), including several Sharp models, will even fold and staple the brochures.

Here’s a step-by-step guide to using a Sharp MFP to create a booklet:

  1. Organize your letter-size documents in the order you want them to appear as booklet pages.
  2. On your Sharp’s touch screen, select “special modes” and then “pamphlet copy.”
  3. Load the documents into the document feeder and press start.
  4. While you wait, the Sharp copier/printer will scan each document into its memory; reduce and rotate the document images so that two will fit onto each sheet of paper in the correct order; and place the images on both sides of the paper.
  5. The copier will fold, staple and place the pamphlets into the finisher for you to pick up.

When it’s time to print additional brochures, either use the original letter-size documents or make double-sided copies of the booklet. I hope your office gets plenty of use out of this booklet-making guide.

High Efficency for Higher Education

Summer is coming to an end and parents and students have begun to prepare for the classroom with purchases of notebooks, laptops and other school supplies. Similarly, schools and colleges, would benefit from shopping a bit to update their copiers, printers and other essential equipment in an effort to increase productivity while reducing cost.

In the paper-intensive world of education, educators and staff must manage a large volume of materials, from classroom handouts to administrative data. Yet many of these institutions usually operate with smaller budgets while still being expected to produce high-caliber work.

The need for reliable yet economical resources puts a premium on the equipment schools select for their copying and printing needs. Copiers are one of the most popular tools used daily by teachers, administrators and other institution officials.

The dedicated team at Copeco has been managing the equipment, repair and product costs for learning institutions for many years.
