The brochure is two-sided and should be folded in three: if your printer does not handle duplex printing then print one side first, reinsert the paper (typically for inkjet printers the printed side should be uppermost but please do a test print first) and then print side two.

The flyer is available in two sizes: 1-up is A4 or US Letter, 2-up is for bulk use and produces two copies side-by-side on a single sheet with crop marks to help split in half after printing.
