# Ever wondered how to avoid the overlays when you want a printout from your beamer presentation?

Just put the handout option in your beamer presentation.
 \documentclass[12pt,handout]{beamer}
If you then want t o also print everything on one page (as Steve did for his Away Day talk) then just do this
 \documentclass[a4paper]{article} \usepackage{pdfpages}   \begin{document} \includepdf[pages=1-last,nup=2x2,landscape=false,frame=true,             noautoscale=true,scale=0.6,delta=0mm 5mm]{mypresentation.pdf} \end{document}
where mypresentation.pdf is your beamer presentation which you created with the handout options (so without overlays). In this example 4 beamer slides are printed on one page (2x2).
