How do I edit my PDF?

  • Editable PDFs are designed for a computer , not mobile devices.
  • Be sure your PDF is open in a  PDF reader like Adobe Reader and not a web browser.  
  • If you are using a Mac, be sure to use Adobe Reader, Apple Preview is NOT compatible with editable PDFs.
  • Do not use Adobe Reader Touch.  It is not compatible with editing Font Properties at this time.  You can use Adobe Reader Touch for our non-editable PDFs only.
  • Edits other than text are not permitted.  Custom PDFs are available upon request at an additional charge.

How do I change the font?

  • If your PDF has changeable font properties, use CTRL-E (CMD-E on Mac) to see the Font Properties box.  Highlight the text and change the font, size, color, alignment, spacing, etc by selecting your options in the Font Properties box.
  • If you see a "+" sign at the end of your text it means your font is too large. Reduce the size until the "+" sign disappears.

How do I save the font?

  • Be sure your PDF is open in a  PDF reader like Adobe Reader and not a web browser when editing so it will save upon closing the file.  Web browsers will not save any of the changes you make.

How many copies can I print?

  • You can print as many copies as you need but please don't post them online or share them with others.
  • Our PDF files are for personal use only and not for resale.

Why are my labels/stickers/tags not lining up properly?

  • Be sure to print at 100% and not Scale to Fit or Fit to Page.
  • If things are still not lining up, send an email and we'll fix it for you.

What if I only want to print a few tags or labels?

  • You do not need to print on the labels or tags they are formatted for.  
  • You can print on regular paper (see below for paper recommendations) and cut out the tag/sticker/or label with scissors.
  • Apply with clear tape or glue as needed to adhere to your surface. 

What kind of paper should I print on?

  • We recommend Epson or Brother bright white presentation paper for the sharpest colors but any Bright White Ink Jet Paper will work well.
  • Be sure to use the settings recommended for your printer.  

How do I print my iron-on transfer mirrored?
