Depends on your printer.

1:  If your printer has a "DUPLEXER" (a device that can turn the page over during the print process, installing the right software drivers on your computer should allow this to work very easily.
If the printer is managed from a server, install the drivers on the printer.

2:  Some printer drivers will allow you to pick "Manual" duplexing, where they will print the page, ask you to reinsert it, and print the next page on the opposite side.. this is a very common method.

3:  If you have neither of the above, send a print job to the printer of page 1 of 2 only, times by the number of brochures you want.. eg 10.

Collect the 10 printouts, put the pages in the printer the opposite way to have it print on the opposite side, and then send a print job of page 2 of 2, with 10 copies, and you have 10 double sided brochures at the end!

Before you try printing ten copies do a test print of just one copy.

Before you place the sheet into the printer for the second side to be printed write a note on the printed side stating which way (print side face up or face down) the printed side is put in and a second note staing which way round (top end in first or upside down).

Print the second page.

Check that;

1. the page has printed on both sides rather than two pages printed on the one side.

2. both pages are printed with the text the same way round.

This will avoid the type of language that can be heard from offices around the country when wasted paper has to be accounted for!"
