Printing at Home:

  1. Please use a PC or Mac to download, save, and print. Phones and tablets can't read color codes in PDFs well and they may print your items incorrectly.
  2. If you plan to print your PDF items at home, please be sure that your Adobe Reader software is up-to-date. Adobe frequently makes updates and if your software is not current, your files may not print correctly on your home printer.
  3. When printing from a PDF, be sure to select "Actual size" in the print options so the size prints correctly.
  4. I suggest printing on card stock paper for most of my items, more specifically invitations, thank you cards, announcements, and any other item that may need to be mailed.
  5. If you are printing on card stock paper at home, change your paper type to Card Stock, Thick 2, or Thick 3. If those are not options through your printer, choose Premium. You will also need to change the paper quality to Best. This will slow your printer down so that the ink can print on the thicker paper more effectively.
  6. Most of my items include crop marks or trim lines to help you cut your item down to the correct size and/or shape.
  7. If you are printing a double-sided file, it may be best to print the fronts first, allow them time to dry, and then flip them over to print the backs.
  8. If you are printing a onesie or uniquely shaped invitation, the backside will be a full page print and not shaped like the front initially. This is to ensure that when you use the front as a guide for cutting, that the backside will be the full pattern and that no trim lines will be showing on the back after cutting.
  9.  Always print a proof first before printing multiples of your item(s).
  10. If the colors are very different from what you see on screen (ex: the invite is purple, but printing in pink), you likely need to update your Adobe Reader software. Because these files are created using the most recent versions, older versions of the software may not translate color codes accurately to your printer, resulting in faded coloring or completely different colors altogether.

 

 

Printing Through a Print Shop:

  1. Please use a PC or Mac to download, save, and print. Phones and tablets can't read color codes in PDFs well and they may print your items incorrectly.
  2. I suggest printing on card stock paper for most of my items, more specifically invitations, thank you cards, announcements, and any other item that may need to be mailed.
  3. Most of my items come multiples to a standard 8.5x11 page size and cannot be printed as photo prints. This means that if you plan to print at a store like Staples, Kinkos, or Office Depot*, that you will need to have copies printed on card stock. See #7 on my FAQ page for a list of suggested places to have the files printed as well as places that will not accept these files.
  4. If you go in person to print, if possible, always ask to see a printed proof first before printing multiples of your item(s).
  5. Most of my items include crop marks or trim lines to help you cut your item down to the correct size and/or shape.
  6. If you are printing a onesie or uniquely shaped invitation, the backside will be a full page print and not shaped like the front initially. This is to ensure that when you use the front as a guide for cutting, that the backside will be the full pattern and that no trim lines will be showing on the back after cutting.
  7. If your item is a onesie or other die cut design, please note that print shops will not cut the invitation due to the shape. Some manual work is required on your end with the cutting, but the cost savings is unbeatable. However, if you prefer not to print and cut, please contact me and I will put you in touch with my partner Etsy shop that can print, cut, and ship any of my die cut designs.

 

 

*Although you can print with Office Depot, you must take the files into a location near you to have them printed. Their online printing portal will strip the template of all editable areas leaving only the background image and the original non-editable text.
