Verifying printed SBB tickets before departure

Hi I'm taking the tgv to paris on the 1st and bought the ticket online through sbb. I'm worried about if the ticket will scan, because my friend who printed it did it double sided. The FAQ is pretty clear that it's your responsibility to print it on previously unused paper and that any evidence of the purchase online cannot be used as a ticket. Does anyone know if I can get the ticket scanned before boarding so I can be sure it will work? Id rather not pay them to print it. I already ed up once forgetting my 24 hour ticket from kilchberg and it was not fun.

Install any old QR reader app on you phone and scan it.. It may not "understand" it but it will tell you if the code is readable.

Why print it?

Isn't the whole idea that it gets MMSed to your phone, and they scan the picture?

Unfortunately it's not available to just have on my phone, has to be printed

If you have the sbb mobile app, it comes with a QR reader, try to use it to scan your printed ticket
