Creating a Custom Paper Stock

If the paper size you want is not listed in the available options you can create your own paper size.  Please note though that in order to print using your own paper stock it must be a paper format that your printer is capable of printing.

To create your own paper stock, click on the "New" button from the Blank Project Wizard.
