How to print your TREC
If it is the first time you are printing; you need to install our printing program, called “Trec Printer”.
Click on the link shown on your invoice. (http://www.trec.co.za/TrecPrinter/install.htm)
A screen will open with an “install” button. Click here.
If a .Net Framework is not installed on your computer, you will automatically be asked to install this. Again, click on install. Wait a few seconds.
Your Trec Printer should open automatically.
In the Trec Printer; Type in your invoice number in the field provided.
Type in your “key” in the field provided. (The key is found on the invoice, below the invoice date)
Click on the green arrow.
The cards you have ordered will be listed in the column on the left side.
Double click on an item to see a preview of your card.
If you are sure that everything is correct, click on the printer icon and select the printer connected to you computer. Type in the quantity of cards you want to print and print!
You can only print the quantity you have ordered.
By Law all transport emergency cards must have red lines on the sides. The Trec Printer gives you a choice to print with the red lines (if you have colour printer) or without the red lines (on pre-printed stationary).
