Print Instructions For An Ampad

You can print on any Ampad paper from a standard printer

Ampad is a leading American producer of specialized paper, notebooks and stationery. Paper from any of these products can be used in standard printers to add flare to business documents, invitations, letters and other printed materials. Printing on Ampad products is relatively easy, though printer setting vary. When printing on Ampad products, it is important to set the proper margins and allow for the various weights of the paper used to guarantee the ink sets properly.


1. Check the packaging of your Ampad paper to determine the density. Most papers range in density from 0.25 to 1.5 grams per cubic centimeter, with printer presets for ledger paper falling around about 0.6 g/cc. Ampad produces paper of varying densities.

2. Measure the size of the margins on your Ampad paper with a ruler if it has a decorative border. Certain Ampad papers come with designed borders which require margin adjustments for printing.

3. Open your document in a word processing or imaging program.

4. Select Print Options or Page Setup under the File menu of your word processing or imaging program. This will open a new window allowing you to adjust features for printing.

5. Select either Letter or Legal from the paper menu, based on the type of paper you are using. Select the weight of the paper that you are printing on from the supplies menu. Select a heavier weight from the menu for paper heavier than 0.6 g/cc. Save the setting and close out of the print setup window.

6. Drag the margin markers at the top of your document to be within your margin measurements if you are using an Ampad paper with a decorative border. Save these settings.
