small print on boarding pass

I use Windows XP and have a Dell All in One Printer A920. Last summer I flew Alaska and when I printed my boarding pass the print was very small. The bar scan was okay and no problem boarding. Now I have a flight with BA in June and when I print my e-ticket or itinerary it again prints very small. I'm guessing when I go to print my boarding pass it will again print very small. All my other printing jobs print fine, it's just the airline thing. I've see this issue before but wonder just what is causing this. Is it me or the airlines?
Thanks for any suggestions smithokay

It's probably something with how your browser is configured to set the page size. Do you get small print when you print other web pages from your browser?

It's not always your fault, sometimes it's the settings the airlines are using


And there have been questions on different browser forums about a specific airline's boarding pass not printing correctly from a specific browser (like this Firefox / Alaska Airlines combination)


Try a different browser, try printing to PDF and enlarging that or try a different browser, or just print it at the airport.

Funny.. if one can't read the stipulations, is one bound to it? An argument for both sides.
