Some helpful tips before downloading
Are you reading this from your mobile device?
Templates will not work on your phone, tablet or mobile device. Download to your laptop/computer from Your Account at any time (check your email for login credentials).
Open in Adobe Reader only!
Templates only work in Adobe Reader. It’s ✳︎ free ✳︎ and the latest version is called Adobe Acrobat Reader DC. They won’t work in any other program!
The best way to download your templates
Download & save your templates directly to a folder on your computer so they don’t automatically open in your default PDF viewer (as some of these viewers can corrupt the editable text fields – eg Preview on a Mac).
To do this:
Move your mouse over the download links below,
Right click (or Control+click on a Mac)
Select either “Download linked file”, “Save link as” or “Save target as” depending on which internet browser you are using.
Choose a folder to save to (usually defaults to your Downloads folder).
Then open Adobe Reader and select the File > Open menu. Navigate to your downloaded file and select it. Ta Da!
My quick tips to get you started
If you’re in a rush to get started this is all you need to know!
First check: That you are editing in Adobe Reader only!
To edit: Click on a shaded box (these don’t print out – they just show you where the editable text fields are), highlight my sample text with your cursor and just start typing.
To save: Use the menu options File > Save As… and choose a folder on your computer.
To print: Click on the print icon (or menu options File > Print). Print at “actual size”.
Download my Print Release if your copy shop requires permission to print.
