I have made a template for a small sign that will label cafe foods, but I can't find the best solution to print more than one sign on a page. The signs are about 3 by 2 inches, and I'd love to fill a standard letter sized sheet with them. Sounds simple- but I'm obviously missing something?

  • Is each "sign" a separate file, layer or artboard? How are they arranged now?

As a quick fix, you can wrap artboards within artboards, take aa look at this example. Here I have a file with 4 artboards (1 hidden off screen that won't be used)


I can wrap a larger artboard around these 4, like so:


Then when I go to print (cmd + p), I can set the range to only print that final artboard. In my case (6), depending on how close the boards are, you may have to use scale to fit or just move them closer. print screen

  • Although this is an interesting solution, you didn't explain how to create new artboards: "Document Setup" -> "Edit Artboards" -> then draw a new artboard.

    @paulmz I did not think it was needed, since the user has already created multiple designs, one would assume they have an understanding of how to create artboards with the tool. Jun 23, 2016 at 20:23
