Yes, however, if you do print your eBook please be aware of the following. The software will only let you print your eBook once from the device to which you first downloaded your eBook and you may only print 100% of the pages. Hence if you plan to print the material please first download it to a PC from which you are able to print.

Before you print, please ensure that:
(a) a working printer is connected to your PC and
(b) there is ample paper and toner in the printer

Failing to make these checks may result in a print failure and the software will not allow you to reprint again. You will lose your right to print a copy. Print gradually. Do not send the entire eBook to the printer in one job. Once you have used your print allowance, printing will not be possible and you will need to purchase a hard copy from ActEd.
