Copying Two Pages Onto One With a Pixma Printer

Save paper and money with this PIXMA printer setting

Pixma MP610

Canon's PIXMA line of photo printers contains several reasonably priced printers that are perfect for home use. The PIXMA MP610 photo printer is an all-in-one inkjet printer that can preview, scan, copy, and print. The printer has a feature that allows you to print two copies of an image onto one sheet of paper. Most of the models of this line of PIXMA printers operate similarly. Here's how to print two pages onto one sheet of paper using the MP610.

Printer Preparation

To copy two pages or images onto one sheet of paper using the PIXMA MP610:

  1. Set the function screen to Copy.
  2. Choose the Special Copy option to bring up a screen where you can select two-on-one printing.
  3. Scroll to 2-on-1 Copy and choose OK.

Scan the First Image or Page

Place the first page or image to be scanned and printed onto the glass of the PIXMA printer, and then press the Color button.

After the scanner warms up, press the OK button to scan the first page or image. 

Scan the Second Page and Print

Remove the first image or page from the printer glass and place the second image or page on the printer glass. Press OK. After the printer scans the second image, it automatically begins to print the combined pages onto a single sheet of paper.

Two-on-one copying is a great paper saver. On some printers—including the PIXMA MP610—you can print four images on one sheet of paper if you don't mind the reduced image size.
