How It Works

The free printables that we offer on this site are free printable world maps with several categories from which to choose. Simply choose a category of maps then click any map link and a new box or tab will open containing a map on a printable page. You can choose to either print the map on your printer or copy the map to a file on your computer for future use. For help with printing your free printable world maps, see "Printing Tips" below.


Printing Tips

When you click a printable world map link, a new box or tab will open and this new area will contain the map. At this point, you can use your browser to print the map. The first thing you will want to do is go to "Print Preview." To do this either choose "File" on your browser menu or right click your mouse, then select "Print Preview." Microsoft Internet Explorer is the recommended browser to use. Other browsers should work although the printing procedure may be slightly different.

If the view of your page in "Print Preview" is showing the page numbers, file name, date or any other information other than your printable map, you will need to turn off the headers and footers. If you have Microsoft Internet Explorer Version 7, there should be an icon in the "Print Preview" area which turns the headers and footers off and on. You will want them off to print your maps. If you have an older version of Internet Explorer, you will need to go to "Page Setup." In the "Page Setup" area, you need to find the two lines for the headers and footers. These lines will probably contain some random looking letters and symbols which is the coding that states what information is shown on the header and footer. You will need to delete all of the information in these two lines. These two lines must be deleted to remove the header and footer information from your printout.

TIP: You may want to write this information down before you
delete it. Then if you ever want to print something with the
default header and footer you can just type the letters and
symbols back into the lines you deleted.

While you are in "Page Setup" and/or "Print Preview" you need to make sure that the sheet orientation is in the proper mode, either "Landscape" or "Portrait". This orientation setting may vary depending on the map or any other free printables item that you are printing. All of the free printable maps will vary on the orientations. Just select the one which is the closest to the size you prefer. You may have to experiment a little for your map to print properly. Also, check to see that your margins are set to .75 or 3/4". There also may be a setting called "Print Size" or "Change Print Size" which may need to be set at 100%, not "shrink to fit" or anything else. You can adjust this setting lower than 100% if your map is getting cut off on the edges or you can use "shrink to fit". You may need to alter some of these settings decribed above, depending on which browser you are using.

TIP: Most printers have no problem printing everything
using a 3/4" margin, however, it is recommended
to print a test sheet and proofread it carefully.

If your printable maps still will not print in the proper location on the sheet, you can experiment with the margin settings in "Page Setup" to move the image around. For example, if you increase the top margin, the image will move closer to the bottom. Also, you may be able to adjust the "Print Size" setting to improve your print. Just make sure that you do not cut off any of your map.

You can also choose to copy your world maps for future use or to use in another program. Simply click your right mouse button on the map graphic while on the printable page and select "save picture as" to save the file on your computer.
