OSM too faint to print

I'm trying to use Open Street Maps base layer, which serves my needs for maps without topo lines, but the features such as trails are so light they fade out almost totally when I try to print from a pdf. Is there a way to darken the map information so it's readable in print?

    Hi there,
    There is no way to darken the layer. Make sure if it is an overlay you have it at 100%. Your best bet is to use another layer. The map builder layers pull their data from open street maps, so that is probably a good bet.
