Printing your Manga- the Indie Way (How to) by Kuru-sann Printing your Manga- the Indie Way (How to) by Kuru-sann
Indie meaning  independent" ; This process is useful for selling your comics in conventions and events. You don't have to go to publishing companies; you just print your comic by yourself. Going indie is a great way to know other artists and gain experience if you ever hope to get published someday.

Special thanks to :iconaubsneechan: and :iconpower-j: , my first teachers in printing my manga when I was new to the indie scene

I use Microsoft Publisher 2010

The process shown here is applicable to left-to-right reading style (western style), if your manga's reading style is from right to left, you'll just have to reverse the layout. 

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The manga featured here is my own, X-Arcadia

I imagine that a print shop has better inks and paper than the average at-home printer as well. 

I think this lays out the process in a way that's both simple, yet gives just enough detail that you understand what's going on; I will throw it in my tutorials folder in case I ever do need to work with Publisher. My only complaint is that, under 'How I Layout My Manga', I initially thought the red labels were referring to the page on the right hand side of the window, not the navigation bar on the left like they're supposed to (I've never worked with Publisher before, so that doesn't help the confusion). Maybe if you nudged the labels over to the left a little so that they're right up against the pages that they refer to.
