PRINTING

In Photoshop, go to File > Print


The Photoshop print dialog / preview appears.

Notice how the preview looks wrong. This is because we have yet to define the paper size being used.

1 - Select your printer in the Printer drop down menu

2 - Click Print Settings to launch the Printer Property dialog.


NOTE - Do not forget to set the media type, quality, and color management settings along with the paper size.

The printer property dialog appears.  Locate and click on User-Defined in the Paper Settings area.


The User-Defined Paper Size dialog appears.

1 - Name the new size

2 - Set the paper width and height using the table below. 

Do Not Forget!
The width is always the smaller dimension of the paper.
The height is always the longer dimension of the paper.
Regardless of card orientation.
