How to Print PDF Tracts for Your Use
We receive many requests for our tracts from other countries, hoping we'll send a big shipment for free. Unfortunately, we are just a small faith mission in the mid-west prairies of Canada, and we do not have the financial resources to ship out parcels of tracts around the globe. Even to send just a small box of tracts overseas is very expensive!
Even if you cannot afford to place an order from us, and pay for it, you may have them free if you know how to download and print them, right from this site.
We take advantage of the internet to help you, by placing all our tracts - copyright free - on this site. This means that you already have our permission to download and print the tracts where you are for you to use right there. This is a greater blessing for you than you may realize.
If you have a computer or laptop that is able to connect to the internet, and if you have a simple home printer, perhaps an inkjet or ink toner based printer, and if you have a package of letter or copy paper, and perhaps extra cartridges for your printer if you are going to print a LOT of tracts - then you have all you need.
How to Download the Tracts
From each of these indexes you will find links to the individual tracts. On each tract's page is the full text of that tract. (That is, all but some booklets).
Step 2 Download the PDF file:
A little menu will fly up near your cursor. On that menu click on "Save Link as..."
Now a window will pop up showing your computer's filing system. Clicking on the folder of your choice, or going up to another level, or clicking the icon to create a new folder and naming it, you can arrange where you want to save the PDF file on your computer. Now click "Okay" or "Save". There. You have just saved a tract to your computer!

How to Print the PDF Tract
Insert the right size paper in your printer's feed tray.
At the top left corner of the PDF reader program will be menu item "File" Click on it, and then go down the drop down menu to "Print" and click there. You may be given opportunity to fine-tune your print command. Print just one copy at a time, to make sure everything is set correctly. If you have some error, try to solve that before you give the command to print a larger number of tracts.
Note that you should likely print 'page 1' of the PDF file on one side, and then turn the sheets of paper over on the feeder tray of the printer, and give another command to print 'page 2'. Print just one at a time until you are sure you have it clear in your mind what is the correct way to turn the sheets over, so that when both sides are printed, you can simply cut the sheets in half, and end up with two leaflet tracts that just need a single fold.
Once you have your steps all figured out, you can start printing small batches of 10 or 20 sheets at a time. Turn them over, print the other side, then cut them apart and get some helpers to fold them for you.
Step 3 Or - download the text body of a tract:
You should see the text of the tract appear there. You have just downloaded a tract.
