Best Way to Print Worksheets
Thank you for your purchase of my homeschool resources whether it is one of my homeschool planners or science and math activities.
I figured you would want to get started right away and print off what you need.
We don’t want my resource to sit on your computer collecting virtual dust.
I want you to get going with it and have it ready to use as quick as you can.
For an economical way to print your worksheets, I use the HP Instant Ink program. You’ll need to get a printer that is a part of their program.
I have the HP 8710 which I love because it has a photocopier and scanner but I don’t believe it is still available for sale.

If I didn’t have an HP printer I’d go for the Epson Ecotank which has a large tank of ink that allows you to print a ton.
I love my Scotch laminator for cards and such that I want to last for a long time that can be reused. I never knew what I was missing until I got one.
When you’re printing out a ton of printables and worksheets especially ones that are more interactive type notebook elements, I like to have a paper trimmer.
It is so much quicker then using a pair of scissors and doesn’t hurt my hand, best invention ever.

Worksheet and Printable Storage
Now that you have a ton of pages printed that you’re getting ready to use with your kids, what can’t be hole punched and placed into a binder I keep stored in a folder.
You may have folders for each child or for each subject.
You get a file folder system that sits next to your desk or one that goes on top. I find that these are super helpful for keep your desktop decluttered.

You’ll find success if you print what you need at a time rather than everything you think you’ll need all at once. You may change course or find you only want certain elements and I hate wasting paper.
Troubleshooting Printing Issues
If you’ve opened up any of my pdfs from your email, they are in preview mode in your browser. You want to ensure that you have Adobe Reader on your device so that you can print from Adobe Reader.
If you notice anything like a black page, or misaligned elements or pages printing without images, this is likely due to you needing to update Adobe Reader.
I hope you enjoy using my printables.
