Tutorial: Printing Tacomics w. FireFox Browser

for true patriots, freedom and democracy

Have you struggled with printing your favorite Tacomics ?  Is your cubicle wall void of morally uplifting content?  Is your refrigerator surface found wanting?

Huddle in Darkness No Longer Dear Friends™!

We understand.  We are your REAL friends.   Printing can be pleasurable and it's own reward.   Firstly You'll need my favorite internet browser: Mozilla FIREFOX !  Download it today.

1. SteP  ONE

    navigate to your favorite tacomic.  Notice those little links at the bottom (pic 1)?  You'll want to click "Pint"



DIY print


PART II

after clicking that you should have an isolated, rather large jpeg loaded in an empty browser window.  You're doing great.  

Next...

 in the firefox menu go to FILE > PRINT PREVIEW


step 2

click that, you'll get a strange window with several options. configure the settings to 'landscape' mode. scale the image now to 90% this should fit that big image down to the right paper 8x10 paper scale without clipping or printing on extra sheets (pic 3).

print away!

nice. hit PRINT!

for extra credit


configure your printer to high-quality, use fancy-bourgeois paper  etc.

RR Anderson is one of the most curious characters in the UFO lore and the history of underground cartooning. He fought bizarre underground beings in the caves of Alaska, was wounded by a laser before it was invented, and had a background with the clandestine branch of the Tacoma Cartoonists Society.
