  • A problem with PFD printing

    So I bought some books in PDF format with the intent of having them printed and bound. I did this because I wish to run a savage rifts game tomorrow (9/7) and had little notice so it would be cheaper to do that than pay for overnighting mail. On presenting my USB to the associate and him examining the files I was told that while I have permission to print them it is still legally risky for them to do so with some sort of permission from the publisher of said books. Is that something I can get and how would I go about that.

    Thank you.

    The permission is in the pdf file.

    Look at the cover of the pdf in adobe reader / whatever. You'll see a yellow "note" icon in the upper left corner. Point your cursor at that icon and it should expand into a note that has several paragraphs. The last paragraph reads:
    This document may be printed for personal use.
    Almost all PEG pdf books have that note, and all of my Savage RIFTS books definitely have it. Along with the companions.

    I hope you find the above post useful. And not insulting, because I was trying to be helpful, not insulting; being a pedantic jerk, that isn't always clear.

      Apparently, at least according to the guy at Staples, that means I can print it but does not give a third party permission to receive pay to print it for me.

        Then your specific Staples guy is a dick.
        They can't print any copies you do not specifically ask for, they can't retain copies of the files, and they can't distribute printings to anyone - but they can absolutely print a copy of your file and then hand it to you, in exchange for cash.

            I sent an email to Jodi explaining the issue and she sent me one stating I did have permission to have them printed.
