Alright, what exactly is a printable?
A printable is a digital file that you purchase, download to your computer, and then print for your personal use. Printables typically come in PDF format but you might see other formats like JPG too. So think printable planners, coloring pages, activity sheets, wall decor, checklists, etc. Really cool, right?!
What happens after I purchase a printable from your shop?
I’m so glad you asked; it’s easy! The process goes like this:
Tip: create your free account so you can easily access your previous purchases.
- Purchase your favorite printable(s) through the Journals to Freedom Printables shop.
- Right after your payment method clears, you'll be shown a download link for your purchase, as well as emailed the same download link. Larger printable files may take a couple of minutes longer to generate a download link for you, but should not be more than 15 minutes (it's actually pretty instant!)
Now you are ready to download your printables! My printables will come in a zip file or zipped folder format. Each zip file will include your Printable, your personal license & readme file(do people actually read those? They really should because it tells you what you're allowed to do with your Printable and there might be a surprise for you too😉) & a link back to the shop! If you need help here check out my download instructions here or do a quick Google search.
Open your PDF and scroll through your amazing new printable! Decide if you want to print all of the pages or just a few. You can print any page as many times as you need for your own personal use. Unless otherwise specified, the printables from my shop are meant to be easily printed on US Letter 8.5 x 11-inch paper. I have some neat printing tips here (check back soon!)
What do printables do?
There are printables for literally everything. But what they all seem to have in common is that they help you organize information. There are printables for keeping your medical information, financial planning, household management, holiday activities... the options are endless!
What do I do after I print them out?
My favorite way to organize my new printables is to put them together in a binder
