I’ve promised and promised that I would move on from my sewing posts and offer more variety. So, I apologize for the late post. Today, I’m offering a few printables for you! I’ve been playing with it for a few days and I’m still learning, so be gentle. However, PLEASE feel free to contact me with your input.
The idea of printables is nothing new and I’m certainly late to the game. I put it off for so long because it seems like EVERYTHING has already been done. The last thing I want to do is rip off someone else’s idea. With that being said, not much is original anymore. Look at fashion. So many of the styles are repeated, re-invented by other designers, or flat-out copied. Why should I be so special as to expect to come up with a completely original idea?? I’m not and I don’t, so I am doing my best to offer printables with my own personal spin on them.
Once I got started, I realized just how much work goes into designing one! I don’t think I’ve spent so much time on the computer. I’ve been downloading images, buying files, copying, clipping, removing backgrounds, etc., for what seems like forever. And that’s only for ONE file. But, it’s 100% addictive!! After making your first printable, you’ll want to make more, guaranteed. The flexibility and options are great. Now I know I can make an art print to coordinate with any room and it will be something unique to us or our tastes. Can’t beat that.
I’m not going to talk your ear off today about it, I’m planning a tutorial on some aspects of the design, but remember, I’m a newbie. There’s quite a long road ahead of me before I know a whole lot, but what I have learned or what works with me is something I want to share with you guys! So, look below for my very first free printables!! I’m excited and I sincerely hope you’ll enjoy them AND provide feedback if you feel so inclined.
**Yes, some are redundant, but I wanted you to have options.
Do NOT scale to fit, or fit page. Make sure that option is unchecked or you will end up printing outside of your margins. I also recommend printing on photo paper, cardstock, or multi-media paper. If framing, you can print on regular printer paper as it won’t be noticeable once it’s mounted. I HIGHLY recommend setting your printer to a high-quality print rather than standard. **All monitors and printers display/output color differently.
There you have it! A few printables that I’ve worked up for you and I hope you find one you like. I plan to continue churning them out and offering at least one new printable (who am I kidding? It will probably be a million!!) a month. Just keep your eyes peeled for those notifications or check the blog often.
What kind of printables would you like to see next? Comment or drop me an email. I’d love to know!
