Make sure you save your Word, jpg or Excel files as a pdf. Pdf’s are generally easier to print. They can also be secured so that no one can download and change your product. Most programs give you the ability to “save as” to a pdf. If you use an Adobe product like Illustrator, it’s part of the program. If you use other art/graphic sites like Canva, Picmonkey you can always convert or print the jpgs to a pdf.

[Lyrics] Well butter my butt and call me a biscuit, you're lookin' better than a barbecued brisket. You're the cream of the crop and the salt of the earth so we're all celebratin' the day of your birth. You can charm the dew off the honeysuckle when folks are feelin' blue, you can make 'em chuckle. We'll be fancy prancin' until the chickens roost, until the cows are home and all the varmints have vamoosed. Now we feel plum tuckered from having so much fun, So you can stick a fork in us - it's lookin' like we're done. [Message] Happy Birthday
Don’t know how, but I just came across your blog and I am having a ball looking around at all the wonderful images you have posted. You really inspire me, because I too am a country gal and from one country woman to another, you have great ideas and taste!! I want to thank you for all the “free bees”. You are very kind and generous. I have no doubt some of the things I see are going to end up in my home!
Another surprising video result: Beth Anne found a tutorial video she created for her and Sarah's now-defunct Mommy blog on making cappuccinos at home with a frother. That video has almost 5,000 views on it! Again, this video wasn't promoted in any way, it just sits on their Mommy blog which gets about 10-20 hits per day… so it's essentially dead. The video is getting viewed because it's ranking for keyword phrases on Google and YouTube.
I don't know if it's just the Avery software of what but these do not print the way that you see them on screen. It's incredibly frustrating when something is centered and there should be no problem with it printing centered on both the front and back but the cards end up overlapping and you can't print doubled sided because they just don't print right. I never have this type of problem when I print regular index cards or word/pdf documents so I'm going with its an Avery software glitch but as long as you print one-sided they're OK.
So, here’s a roundup of my most popular ” back to school” planner stickers that I designed for the Erin Condren & Classic Happy Planner, you can find those links listed below. The links will take you back to the original post so that you can retrieve the pdf printables that you would like. Pick and choose your favorites and start printing and cutting!
I'm about to start a Etsy store. I'll be selling art prints. I can't decide whether to sell downloads or physical prints. If I do physical prints I'll be using the Printful integration. I've done some research on Etsy and I see others selling downloads and from the looks of it they are making a killing. 80k in sales of 6 dollar downloads over just a few years. So there is definitely a market for it. I realize however some people might not want the hassle of printing themselves. Which is why I am questioning the digital download idea. However, as I said the digital download shops seem to be doing really well. More then just a few I've found are doing well. I realize that there is always the possibility of someone stealing my work after downloading. I'm fine that since really if someone buys a physical print they could technically make a high quality scan of it and then do the same as they might with a download. For those that offer downloads what is your experience?
A great tip Sarah shared was to encourage independence in smaller children so they can be playing alone and entertained at least for a short time while you do some work. Sarah has been able to achieve her goal of making a part-time income on her own terms with lots of flexibility. Although she tries to continually create new products, she knows that her business was built to allow for flexibility and put her family first. So Sarah doesn't stress if she can't add new products for a while. Her business works for her – not the other way around!
East Bay Inn has a ton of potential but seems to just miss the Mark. Beautiful room with authentic brick wall and elevated ceiling, then you see the peeling paint, dated tub and plastic toilet in the bathroom. They have a great concept with a daily happy hour but it amounts to a few scatter plates of cheese and veggies and a bottle or two of wine setting out in the lobby. There is a parking lot right next door but it was full, so we ended up sweating our luggage a block and a half from the city lot down the way. Not horrible, but it could be so much more! Great location though.
3. Advanced – increasing what you offer. I have videos for each of my products, a pattern maker could include a video walkthrough too! A party supplies maker could include an “in the mail” copy so they can see what it is supposed to look like. Adding more to the digital download will increase the happiness of the person who buys your products which is super important.
Well it is also cost effective. A lot less expensive to purchase a download and then print it yourself on your home printer, at your local printshop, or online through a website. I don't know if it's more of an impulse purchase. I think it is attractive to people that like DIY projects. By using a downloadable file you have a lot of options for printing as opposed to only have it printed in one way.
While perusing another decor blog I came across a great site for inexpensive art. It is called Vintage Printables and is full of options for your walls. All you have to do is look through the art, find the perfect print and take it to Kinkos to have it blown up. All in all it should cost you a few bucks, minus the frame which I suggest HomeGoods for those. Or even Goodwill…you can always find a used frame there and spruce it up with some spray paint!
