Downloading and printing the checklist booklet
We have formatted this checklist so you can download and print using your own computer and printer. This allows instant access by you and ease of updating for us.

But, we cannot predict exactly how your computer and printer will handle this project. Your computer needs to have Adobe Acrobat Reader software installed. This free software is referenced in Step 1 below. The critcal element is your printer. There are a seeming infinite number of printer manufacturers and models. We cannot predict how every make and model will print the sheets. We have tested it on several configurations and the biggest issue is centering. Every printer has a part at the top of a sheet that does not print and a part at the bottom of the sheet that does not print. If these “non printing areas” are equal then the printing will center on the sheet. If they are not equal the printed area might not be centered after folding. You need to consult your printer documentation, or experiment, to determine your non-printing areas.

Step 1
Confirm you have Adobe Acrobat Reader installed on your computer. If you do not, download and install this free software from the Adobe Acrobat download site.

Step 2
For the cover we have included two different versions. If your “non printing areas” are equal, use the first file. If your “non printing areas” are not equal, use Version 2.

After it opens on your computer, print it out on 8.5 x 11 paper. Use a color printer on heavy paper stock for best results.

Step 3
Click here to open the Even Page File. After it opens on your computer, print it out. Use 10 sheets of blank 8.5 x 11 paper.

Step 4
Click here to open the Odd Page File. After it opens on your computer, print it on the back of the sheets of the even page file. This is the tricky part. You may need to experiment to get the pages put together right.

Step 5
Fold the sheets in half, fold the cover in half, put the sheets in order, and staple at the fold.

A “Duplex Version” pdf file that allows you to easily print the checklist back to back at a Kinko’s or other similar place. Just down load the file, put it on a thumbdrive, and take to a copying store.
This file was supplied by Martin Dellwo who writes…..

“This is a copy of the DVOC checklist (without cover page) all in one file that can be printed two-sided, folded in half, and collated into booklet form.

I was able to print this in duplex at Kinko’s, but it should work for any printer that allows duplex printing. I remember at Kinko’s that I did have to choose whether it flipped on the long- or short-edge, I think it was the short-edge. Someone using this would probably want to just print one page first to test it out.”
