FAQs About Printable items
Will this print in real glitter paper (or) gold/silver foil?
You will be printing a “faux” foil or glitter paper. We have photographed true gold and silver foil, and glitter papers to create this printable file, but desktop printers cannot print true metallic inks or foils as this is a specialty process. For a shimmer effect, try printing on pearled or shimmer paper, or add little dabs of gold glitter for extra sparkle and shine!
What type of printer should I use?
A standard desktop inkjet or laser printer is perfect! You can print these from home, or at your local print shop. In order to save money on ink cartridges, we recommend printing your decorations at a print shop if they include a lot of black artwork. By purchasing this printable, we grant you (or a local print shop) permission to print these pages for your personal use only. Please feel free to supply them with this page as written permission, if required.
What type of paper should I use?
All pages are formatted to fit on standard 8.5" x 11" paper.
For items that will need to wrap around something (for instance, our mini champagne and straw flag wraps), a standard 80lb text paper is great to work with.
For flat items, we love to use a thicker white cardstock or index paper (thicker than your standard printer paper, and available at any office supply store).
We recommend printing with FSC-certified paper (sourced from responsibly-managed forests). In the upper right corner of each page, we’ve also included a suggested paper for your convenience!
Please bear in mind that various paper colors and textures will yield different results. We always recommend that you do a few test prints first before printing your entire collection!
Are these files editable?
With the exception of certain type-in fields, which are included only in some party printable packages, these files are not editable. We have created them using design software that is not available on most desktop computers, and have taken great care to set the files up so you can create exactly what is shown in the photo. We hope that you love them as much as we do!
Can you customize something for me?
We offer customization of our invitations and candy bar wraps as well as slight alterations (such as color or wording change) to all of our other supplies and decorations. However, we are not able to create anything completely custom at this time.
I’m having trouble printing the files correctly?
The common troubleshooting methods are to check that you are using the most current version of Adobe Acrobat Reader. You can download this free software here.
If the issue persists, please be sure to check that your printer settings are correct. Files should be printed at 100% scale, in Landscape format.If you continue to have trouble, please feel free to e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
