So what's the difference between Auto Mode and my Custom Settings? Slide the handle below to see a straight out-of-camera comparison.

What size are the Cheat Cards?

When printed, each Cheat Card is 2" x 3.5" inches (same size as a standard business card). When viewed on a mobile device, the Cheat Card fits to the dimensions of your phone or tablet. For those with poor eyesight, I recommend rotating your device to the horizontal orientation. This will enlarge the text and make it easier to read.

Can I print the Cheat Cards?

Yes, feel free to print the Cheat Cards at home or at a local print shop. If the print shop needs approval for printing, you can refer them to this page.

How do I print multiple Cheat Cards per page?

Inside Adobe Reader, go to 'File' -> 'Print' and a print dialog box will pop up. Under the 'Page Handling' area, find the 'Page Scaling' option and select the Multiple button OR the 'Multiple pages per sheet' option from the pull down menu. After you do that, under the 'Pages per sheet' area, select 6.

What's the best way to laminate the Cheat Cards?

Once printed, each Cheat Card should be 4x3.5 inches (single-sided). Just fold it down the middle, glue or double-stick tape the blank side together and then laminate it. The finished card will be 2x3.5 inches, which is the same size as a business card...great for storing inside a wallet, purse or small camera bag.

Can I share the Cheat Cards with family & friends?

The funds I earn from these Cheat Cards go directly to supporting my young family (wife and three baby boys).
