By default, our templates are designed to be printed on A4 or letter-size paper. If you would like to print your documents on smaller sheets of paper, follow the instructions below.

Note: These instructions are made for our default template designs that are provided in the app.

Firefox: Unfortunately the Firefox browser does not support the CSS "zoom" property, which is needed to shrink the design.. so this will not work if you are using Firefox.

Step 1

Login to the Order Printer Pro app, by going to Shopify admin -> Apps or by clicking this link:

Step 2

Once logged into Order Printer Pro, click on the "Manage templates" tab in the top bar

Step 3

On the template you want to make fit onto smaller paper, click the "Edit template" button.

Step 4

At the very top of the "Code" field, paste in the below code:

  @media print {
    .printer-preview-content {
      zoom: 0.65;

Note: You can adjust the 0.65 number in the above code to adjust the amount of re-sizing. For example: 0.5 will make the document even smaller.

Step 5

Click "Save" and you are done!

Note: The document will look normal on screen, but when you click print you will see the design shrink to fit nicely onto the smaller paper.
