    I have a problem.
    I print on 2x2 labels.

    From a website, I get labels printed on the top left.
    This sucks because I waste half the paper.
    I can turn around and user another top left.
    But then I am left with top right empty.

    Is there any software that allows me to cut the top left and move to the top right?

    I have tried images. So instead of getting a PDF, I get an image. Now I can cut and put wherever I want.
    Problem: the output graphic is really poor. :(
    Nowhere near as sharp as the original PDF print output.

    Or is there code somewhere where I can offset the PDF content somehow?

    Thanks.

    One possibility comes to mind. Does the combination of your particular printer's settings and page set-up of the PDF software you use for printing allow you to increase the left margin by half a page width?

    Using MS Word one can print any one of the labels on a sheet.
    Just set up a file using one of the label templates that fits your label sheet.
    Then you should see a "Boxed" area for each label. Next all you need to do is fill in any unused boxed area.
    Just be careful and some of these label sheets do not like to be run through a printer to many times.
