Printing GermanStamps.net Album Pages

Printing album pages in Leuchtturm/Lighthouse or Schaubek sizes can be more difficult than Letter or A4 because they are not standard paper sizes, and software such as Adobe Acrobat cannot usually auto-detect the correct paper size.  If you are unable to get the pages to print correctly on these custom paper sizes, try the steps below.

NOTE:  The screenshots below are from Adobe Acrobat on a Mac.  What you see on your computer may differ slightly depending on software and operating system.

1.  In the print dialog window, note the size given at upper right.  If it is incorrect (for Leuchtturm/Lighthouse, 270 mm x 297 mm; for Schaubek, 276 mm x 292 mm), select Page Setup at lower left.

2.  If the correct page size is not an option under Paper Size, select the option to create a custom paper size.

3.  Create a custom paper size in the correct dimensions (for Leuchtturm/Lighthouse, 270 mm x 297 mm; for Schaubek, 276 mm x 292 mm).

4.  Back on the previous Page Setup screen select the custom paper size.

5.  Back on the main print screen, the correct size should now be showing at upper right.  If not, uncheck the Choose paper source by PDF size option.
