 This file is the template file for laser printing. ​ It needs to be opened in Photoshop in order to see the guides that designate the frame, soundtrack, and perforation areas. ​ Simply generate your desired film files in this template, copy those over to a file the size of piece of paper of whatever size you want to print, print a copy to see exactly where the toner will end up on the page, tape down your film along the perforated side over that printed area (just 3 small pieces of tape should be enough), and then run it through the printer again. ​ Note that you will likely need to do some tests with this file, scaling up and down slightly, to get frame-accurate alignment with whatever printer and leader/​stock you're using. This file is the template file for laser printing. ​ It needs to be opened in Photoshop in order to see the guides that designate the frame, soundtrack, and perforation areas. ​ Simply generate your desired film files in this template, copy those over to a file the size of piece of paper of whatever size you want to print, print a copy to see exactly where the toner will end up on the page, tape down your film along the perforated side over that printed area (just 3 small pieces of tape should be enough), and then run it through the printer again. ​ Note that you will likely need to do some tests with this file, scaling up and down slightly, to get frame-accurate alignment with whatever printer and leader/​stock you're using.
