what are the advantages of printing my own stationery?
The biggest advantage to this method is that you are able to save money on papergoods that are charming and designer-quality. There is no shipping involved and there are no "minimum order" requirements--go ahead and print the files as many times as you want!
what format are the printable files?
Upon purchasing your printable files, you will receive a multi-page PDF. PDFs can easily be read by any computer, whether PC or Mac. You will
need Adobe Acrobat Reader 6.0 or newer,
which is a free download available here
if you do not already have it. By using PDFs,
we ensure that the integrity of the typefaces and illustration
elements are perfectly preserved in the best quality for you to print at
you do is open the file, and select "Print".
can anyone do this "print at home" thing?
Yes! Anyone, craft-savvy or not, will be able to do this! We provide easy-to-follow instructions with your printable files that will guide you through the entire process of printing and completing your project. Feel free to send us an email if you have any questions!
what kind of paper and materials do I need?
Included in every PDF file is a complete material list. All of our stationery designs are sized to fit on a standard 8.5x11" piece of paper, so you will be able to purchase your paper stock at any office, craft or paper supply store.
how should I cut my stationery?
All stationery files include cut marks and guides, so it's easy to be precise. We recommend using a blade and ruler, or a sliding paper cutter for best results. You can also use a pair of sharp scissors.
what if my printer isn't up to par?
If you feel that your home printer isn't up to the task of printing stationery, consider taking your files to a local print shop. Almost any "copy shop" (such as Kinkos, UPS Store, etc.) has a high quality digital printer on site that will produce a beautiful final product for a fairly affordable price.
