Designing a template for two-sided printing
Designing a template for two-sided printing
If documents based on your custom template will be printed on
both sides of the paper (called duplex printing), there are a few
additional design elements for you to consider.
It’s common in two-sided documents to place the page num-
bers at the margin opposite the binding edge so that the
numbers can be seen without fully turning the pages. Also, the
odd-numbered and even-numbered pages might have differ-
ent information in their headers and footers—for example, the
author’s name on the even pages and the document’s title on
the odd pages. You can set up different odd and even headers
and footers to meet both of these requirements.
First, you might want larger margins on one side of the page
than on the other to allow for binding or three-hole punch-
ing or to leave space for notes. When the document is duplex
printed, the wider and narrower margins should switch places
on the front and back of the paper. Word 2013 does this auto-
matically when you select the page layout option for Mirror
Turn on mirror margins
1 On the Page Layout tab, in the Page Setup group, click Margins and
then, at the bottom of the gallery that opens, click Custom Margins.
2 On the Margins tab of the Page Setup dialog box, in the Multiple
Pages drop-down list, click Mirror Margins.
3 Enter different measurements for the Inside and Outside mar-
gins and, if desired, enter a measurement in the Gutter box.
4 Click OK.
TIP “Inside” refers to the binding edge of the paper, which is
on the right for even-numbered pages and on the left for
odd-numbered pages. The gutter measurement is always added to the
inside margin when mirror margins are chosen.
