When printing on custom size paper, duplex printing is available for the following width and length ranges. Width: 148 to 216 mm (5.8 to 8.5 inches) Length: 210 to 356 mm (8.3 to 14.0 inches). As mentioned above, the default behaviour in macOS is to automatically turn on two-sided printing in case a printer that supports Duplex Mode is connected to a Mac. However, not every document is suitable for two-sided printing.
Mac OS X: Duplex Printing
The following applies to Mac OS X 10.4 and 10.5. Mac OS X Print lets you create a preset which can become your default print format, or specify duplex on a per-file basis.
Make sure the printer you are using is set up for duplex (two-sided) printing. Also, some applications (such as InDesign), and some file formats may not be compatible with duplex printing.
