Chapter 10. Creating and Printing Presen... > Preparing to Print Your Presentation

Preparing to Print Your Presentation

To avoid wasting paper, first make sure that your PowerPoint presentation is truly ready to print. Set page and print options, customize headers and footers, and preview your presentation in the color scheme in which you will print it. If you're going to give handouts to your audience, you definitely need to print your presentation. But even if you plan to deliver your presentation onscreen only, it's still a good idea to print your presentation. When you proof a hard-copy version of your presentation, you'll often notice problems that you didn't catch on the screen.

TIP

If you're going to provide your audience with handouts, you might want to hand them out after you're finished presenting. If you hand them out before you start the presentation, some people will read ahead and not hear what you say. This is especially important when your slides contain only talking points and the presentation's meat is in what you say.
