What is the best place to Print Party Printables?
Lucky for you, you can print our files right at home on a color inkjet or laserjet printer. Woo-hoo! For best results, check that your ink cartridges are not running low. Alternatively, you could print the files at a local printer such as FedEx, Kinko’s, Staples or Officeworks.
Are Printables easy to use?
There are a few steps with editing the file and saving but after they’re done printing, all you need is a good pair of scissors (or even better, a craft knife and ruler) and you’re set! Simply cut, fold and stick as necessary. Feel free to message us here if you’d like step-by-step instructions.

OPENING YOUR FILES
Do I need any computer software to edit my Printable PDF files?
All you need is Adobe Reader, a free, easy-to-use software that’s already installed on most computers. You will need to have the latest version. Download it for free here.
Why can’t I open the file on my Mac?
Ok with Macs they do default to the Mac PDF software called Preview :(. You just need to open the file in Adobe Reader instead. To do this, launch Adobe Reader first and open the PDF file directly from Adobe Reader itself. Or, right click on the file name, select “Open With” and select “Adobe Reader.”
Why can’t I open and edit my Files on a tablet or my smart phone?
Our editable PDFs are only compatible with Adobe Reader’s desktop version and won’t work on an iPad, iPhone, smart phone or any handheld device/tablet. Once on your computer, you’ll be able to open, edit and print them.

Can I save my file?
Yes. Go to File > Save. This will save your file so you can go continue editing later if needed. Save the file to your desktop and save it with a different name.
Can I change or edit any of the graphics or add a photo to the invitation?
No. Adobe Reader does not allow you to change the colors of the graphics or edit the graphics. Printables cannot be opened in any other graphics design program (like Photoshop or Illustrator, for example) as this would corrupt the editable text feature.
Our invitations are not designed to include photos. Please contact us and we will happily assist you.
Do I need to install any fonts?
No. All fonts you see in our party designs are already embedded within the file. It’s as easy as opening the file in Adobe Reader and typing over our sample text. If you do run into any problems please contact us and we will happily assist you.
