Yes. I was very concerned with the translation. I need to translate that into my language and it's 5 am in Thailand. If you don't want to help. No need to persuade others.

"usar letra de molde" "escribir a máquina"


Explanation:
To print as in print something out by hand rather than use cursive writing is "usar letra de molde."

To type as in use a typewriter rather than handwriting is "escribir a máquina."

Thus, "Please print or type...." would be "Por favor use letra de molde o escriba a máquina...."
