WHAT ARE PRINTABLES?

A printable is a digital file of a graphic design created by Schoolgirl Style.  It is meant to be printed on paper.  Every printable is formatted to print on 8.5 x 11 inch standard sized sheet of paper.  White cardstock or matte photo paper is recommended for printing.

 

WHY ARE PRINTABLES A BETTER OPTION?

*Printables are cost efficient and can be used over and over for one small price.

*Printables can be customized any way you would like for a much neater and cleaner appearance – no more handwriting!

*Create a more cohesive and coordinated look in your classroom by purchasing an entire themed décor package.

 

WHY SCHOOLGIRL STYLE PRINTABLES?

Schoolgirl Style takes pride in creating unique and quality products for the classroom.  With experienced design skills, each collection takes a great deal of time to create.  In addition, each item in the collection is printed out and tested to ensure that every product enhances the overall design.  Designs are tweaked, corrected, and made to perfection in the staging process before it is ever listed in the Schoolgirl Style Shop.  Satisfaction is guaranteed.

 

ARE YOU TAKING CUSTOM ORDERS?

Custom orders are taken on a discretionary basis and determined by Melanie’s availability.  Please do not hesitate to inquire.

 

CAN I EDIT THE PRINTABLES ONCE I PURCHASE THEM?

Yes!  Schoolgirl Style printables are created with the option to add text.  Directions for adding text:  Editable PDF Instructions.

 

DO YOU EVER PRINT/ASSEMBLE THE ORDERS AND MAIL THEM OUT?

No.  You can download the electronic file instantly and start creating!

 

WHAT IS THE BEST TYPE OF PAPER TO USE?

You should use white cardstock or matte photo paper for best results.  You can also use self-adhesive paper, cut out your printables and adhere it to any surface.

 

WHAT ARE MY PRINTING OPTIONS?

You can either use your own ink-jet printer or print out at a local print shop (Staples, Kinkos, etc.)

 

SHOULD I PRINT MYSELF OR SEND THEM TO A PRINT SHOP?

You can do either.  I would try your personal printer first and if you are not getting a quality image, I may consider taking it to a commercial print shop.  *If you choose to customize your printables with your own text, you CANNOT save your files, therefore, sending your items to a print shop will NOT be an option.

 

CAN YOU PRINT MORE THAN ONE TIME?

Yes!  If you save your pdf file, you can print as many times as you would like!

 

DO I NEED TO BUY ANY SOFTWARE?

No.  ADOBE ACROBAT READER is the only PDF file viewer that can open and interact with all PDF documents.  Adobe Acrobat Reader is a free download.  You will need this download to use the editable version of our printables.

 

TROUBLESHOOTING QUESTIONS

*I SEE FAINT WHITE LINES and/or BLACK LINES IN MY PRINTABLE AFTER I PRINTED.  WHAT CAN I DO?  White lines and black lines are caused by your printer.  This happens occasionally with some printers.  If you see white or black lines, you can correct it by going to “Advanced Settings” in your printer options, then click “Print Image.”  That should take care of it!

*I AM HAVING TROUBLE CUSTOMIZING MY LABELSWHAT SHOULD I DO?  Make sure that you follow the step by step editable pdf directions from Schoolgirl Style.   If you have followed the directions and you still can’t get it to work, it could be the type of computer you are using.  If you have a MAC, I would try a personal computer instead.  MAC computers are not compatible with editable pdf files.  EDITABLE PDF DIRECTIONS:  Editable PDF Instructions

*I CUSTOMIZED MY LABELS AND WOULD LIKE TO SEND THEM TO AN OFFICE SUPPLY STORE TO BE PRINTED, BUT I CAN’T SAVE MY FILES.  WHAT DO I DO NOW?  Unfortunately, editable pdf’s cannot be saved on your computer.  Once you customize your labels, you need to print on your own printer OR use your school’s printer.

*I CANNOT OPEN THE PDF FILE BECAUSE IT SAYS THE FILE IS CORRUPT.  WHAT SHOULD I DO?  If for some reason it says that your file is corrupt, move the file to your desktop and open.  That should take care of it!
