I can tell you from first hand experience, such a task is most
definitely printer dependant. If you want to correct the printer's
offset, you'll have to discover it yourself, find some accurate specs,
or info posted by another user of that model of printer. Even different
models from the same manufacturers will have slightly different results.
So unfortunately all I have to offer you is... trial and error will
probably give you the results you're looking for the fastest.
BUT, one thing that's nice is that once you figure out what that offset
is, you'll be able to accomplish the same thing relatively easily again
in the future.
Hope the info helps... -Josh

Subject: [Inkscape-user] front-back print regitration
I want to print on both the front and back of a piece of
paper and have things line up (close to) right...
Nothing fancy (home inkjet printer) -- within a couple of
millimeters would be fine.
Does anyone have a "registration" template to get the
correct offset for my printer, in to which I could set my
document for printing after I get everything lined up?
Or some other (better ;o) suggestions?
I don't want to reinvent any wheels here, and my
googling has not been very productive.
Thanks for your time.
