Printing on both sides of the paper at home can be tricky and may take a few tries!
Some at-home printers have an option to automatically print on both sides. If your printer can print on both sides automatically, you should be able to check that box in the menu.
If you got it wrong, the backside of the print will be upside down. This may take a few tries. If your printer does not print on both sides, you can totally still do it manually.
Most programs that print have the option to print odd or even pages only. This may seem like a weird feature but it comes in handy when printing on both sides! Some printers will even print out in a backwards order , so make sure you consider that too and sort the papers in the right order if needed! You can try and calculate it but prepare for some trial and error.
Like I mentioned up top, I suggest you print just a few pages until you get the hang of it.
