A: A DIY printable is a digital file (usually a pdf), that you print at home or your local print shop or online (e.g., Kinko's, Staples, Office Depot, FedEx Office, etc.), and then assemble at home, using scissors and glue. As the printable templates are reusable (for personal use only), It's a cost effective way to enjoy craft projects.
Q: What software do I need to open and print the files?
A: The latest version of Adobe Reader (free download at www.adobe.com) is needed to open and print our printable files. We would suggest downloading and installing the latest version of Adobe Reader for your computer.
Q: What printer do I need to print these files at home?
A: An inkjet or laser color printer in A4 or letter size is ideal. Some digital downloads are A3 size, which can be printed at home on A3 size printers or online or locally at print shops.
Q: Do I get instructions for the paper models?
A: The templates carry brief instructions and fold lines. Photographs are given for reference. In the case of complex models, directions are included. All of our designs are created to be a simple as possible to cut out and assemble and have been tested by paper crafters.
Q: What tools do I need to assemble the DIY items?
A: For the digital downloads, after printing the files, you will need scissors, glue and in some cases, a blade or knife.
For the printed ready-to-make kits, all you need is glue, as the sheets are pre-printed, pre-cut and pre-creased.
Q: Will the colors print exactly like the photographs?
A: We make every effort to display accurate representations of our products. However, as the actual colors you see and print will depend on your monitor and printer settings and inks, minor variations are to be expected. We suggest setting your home printer to the highest quality for the stock you are printing on.
