We love printing resumes. And we print beautiful resumes and deliver them to your door. Should you, however, decide to print from home here are some quick tips to help you print your best resumes.
- Spellcheck! But you know this ...
- Remove hyperlinks from any websites and email addresses before printing resumes. Otherwise you are left with the underline from the hyperlink on the printed version, which isn't needed.
- You will almost always want to use a laserjet printer for resume printing, if possible. Laser printers are more precise with small fonts and lines, and do not smudge. The only case where would prefer inkjet is if trying to print resumes full bleed, which means that you are printing to the edge of the page with zero margin. Laserjets cannot handle full bleed resume printing. Full bleed resume prints are more common in design and creative fields, but are occasionally seen in more traditional settings.
- Get nice paper. Choose between the various paper weights, textures, compositions and colors. We recommend something not too overstated, that communicates a prepared, clean, and polished look.
- Set the paper correctly in the tray. Resume paper is often designed with one side to be printed on. Give the paper a test run and make sure the textured side is being printed on.
- Make enough copies for your event or interview, and add a few more for good measure.
- And one last quick spell check :)
