One tool available on our DC HQ Printer is the ability to print, sort, fold, and staple reports and presentations in a full-color professional manner. However, it involves several steps in setup of both the printer and your document to ensure it works as expected.

- Epson 11x17 Presentation Matte Paper, PN S041070
- HP 11x17 Premium Presentation Paper, Glossy, PN Q2547A
However, any similar paper should work well.

PART 3: The Process at the Computer
Then, the printer will begin to whir and you will get a folded booklet with 2 staples in the center, known as a 'Saddle Stitch'. Enjoy and feel free to reach to IT or Operations with any questions.
