FAQs

After you place your order, you will see a link that allows you to instantly download your files. Save the files onto your computer and print them to your heart’s content! **For personal use only** 
There are three ways to download your files:

  • Immediately after making your payment, there will be a “download files” button.
  • Click on “Your Account” > then click on “Purchases” > then click on “Download”.
  • You will also receive an email confirming your order and it will contain a link to the download page.

Please note that you must save these to your computer because the download link expires after 60 days.

Smaller files such as wall art, closet dividers, party invitations, some school signs, etc. are a snap to print from home. If you are printing these type of files yourself at home, then please make sure you:

  1. Check the level of ink in your cartridges.
  2. Use high quality Matte or Lustre photo paper for best results. Card stock weight paper (65lb to 110lb) can also be used.
  3. Select “Actual Size” under the Page Handling & Size option (this is the same as “None” under the Page Scaling option in earlier versions of Adobe Reader) unless you specifically want to print at a smaller size.
  4. Select the best quality printing option from your Print Setup dialog box.

To print full-page designs right to the edge of the page select the “US Letter – Borderless” or “A4- Borderless” option under your Page Settings dialog box.

And if your colors or graphics do not print as you were expecting, try selecting the “Print as Image” checkbox. Selecting this may help with how your printer handles the file.

If you are printing at your local print shop (such as Office Depot, Kinkos, Staples, etc.), you can send your file to them in one of the following ways:

  1. Upload your file to their website.
  2. Email the file to your copy shop to print (you can call to get their email address).
  3. Put the file on a flashdrive and bring it into the shop to print.
  4. For places like Staples and FedEx that have a self-service computer station, you can use their computer to open the file (from your email, flashdrive or logging into your Etsy account) and make your edits to print from there.
  5. Make sure you ask the copy shop to print at “Actual Size”, not scaled.
  6. Select a high quality card stock weight paper (65lb to 110lb) as your paper source.

For JPG files, you can send them to a Photo Center to get a beautiful print on nice photo paper, here’s how:

  1. Upload your file to their website.
  2. Email the file to your photo center to print (you can call to get their email address).
  3. Put the file on a flashdrive and bring it into the center to print. Most photo centers like CVS, Walgreens, and Walmart have a self-service kiosks that allow you to plug your flashdrive or phone in.
  4. Make sure you ask the copy shop to print at “Actual Size”, not scaled.
  5. I recommend using high quality Matte or Lustre photo paper for best results, but some may like the look of glossy paper too.
  6. If you are uploading files to online drug store websites, such as Walgreens, many of them only take web color modes. If your purchase includes the “RGB” version then please use those files. Otherwise please let me know if you get an upload error, and I will send you a different file or you can bring the file on a flashdrive to print in the store. (It is just an issue with their website uploader.)
  • For larger prints such as Old Wives Tales Posters, School Posters, Monthly Calendars, etc. blueprints/engineering prints at copy shops are the most cost effective way to go. The print quality is great, but the paper is thin, so you will want to use spray mount or double sided tape to adhere the prints on foam board or place it in a frame. If you are not sure where to go, try searching online for “engineering print [your town/city]”.

♦ My local Office Depot prints an 18”x24” for only $1.69.
♦ I get 20”x30” foam boards at the Dollar Tree for… you guessed it, $1.
♦ If you need to write on your chalkboard poster, try this bold Sharpie:  www.google.com/shopping/product/18161843268945054886

  • Another option for larger color prints like Guest Book Alternatives & School Signs, are warehouse stores, like Costco, that can print 16”x20” and 20”x30” posters and canvases, and I have found them to be the most affordable options. (My local Costco only charges $6.99 for a 16″x20″ or $9.99 for a 20″x30″ poster that you can put in a frame or use spray mount to adhere to foam board to make a big statement in any room!) If your Costco no longer has a photo center, then see above for engineering prints at copy shops.
  • For smaller prints like Instant Download Wall Art, Birth Announcements, and Invitations, any copy shop will be able to print these affordably as well. (My Staples prints an 8”x10” on 110lb cover stock paper for only $0.71, and I’ve gotten rave reviews from friends on them!)
  • Photo centers at drug stores like CVS and Walgreens often have good deals on prints, many times they are even FREE, so just search online using terms like “Walgreens photo coupon code July 2018”.
  • Many local photo centers and online photo websites like mpix.com may be higher in price, but they often offer more sizes are higher quality than the local shops like Walgreens.
