There’s more to printing a fold-down-the-middle, tabloid-size newspaper or booklet than simply printing on 11 x 17 inch paper. The trick is to use print settings that lay out your 8.5 x 11 inch pages on each half of an 11 x 17 inch sheet of paper. Folding the paper in half gives you your newspaper. You can use this technique with any publication where the page size is half that of the paper size.

Microsoft Office Publisher prints the first and last pages on one side of the sheet of paper, the second and next-to-last pages on the other side of the sheet, and so on, as shown.
If your computer doesn't support two-sided printing, Microsoft Office Publisher prints the first and last pages on one sheet of paper, the second and next-to-last on another sheet, and so on. When you photocopy the pages back to back they will be in the right order.
