    The money is too large. How can you reduce the size to get more on a page?

  2. Brenda,
    The money should be pretty much the same size as real money but if you want to reduce the size then you can do so by changing your printer’s settings. Each printer is different but once you click on print you can usually make the image smaller or print two pages on one in which case you will get 6 bills per page.
