If you aren’t a fan of using traditional picture frames to display your prints, I have some alternatives that you might like better.
Displaying Printables on Clipboards
When you think of clipboards I’m pretty sure that the first thing that comes to your mind is not using them to display signs. Done the right way, this is such a cool way to hang your favorite printables. Check out how Liz Marie uses clipboards to display artwork.
Displaying Printables on Wall Hangers
My sister, Kate, over at A Hundred Affections uses this method a lot in her home and this way might actually be my favorite.
Displaying Printables on Curtain Rods
To display printables on curtain rods all you need is, well you guessed it, a curtain rod and a bunch of curtain clips with rings. I love the way Where the Smiles Have Been uses this idea. Perfect for renters.

WHERE CAN I FIND FREE PRINTABLES?
Obviously you know you can find free printables here at The Girl Creative because you are here. (wink wink) When I’m looking for free printables I usually just type what I’m looking for into Google or Pinterest.
By clicking the “images” tab in Google you’ll be able to see the actual printable instead of just the text link to the source. This is very helpful when you are searching for something specific.
HOW CAN I PRINT FREE PRINTABLES?
The great thing about free printables is that they are FREE. Most printables include a PDF that you can download and print right from your home printer. You don’t need any special software or special paper either. Copy paper works just fine.
Printing Tip: When you print from home, be sure to change the print settings to “best” so that you have best quality possible. You might find this setting under “quality”. Your choices will be 300dpi, 600dpi and 1200dpi. 600dpi is perfect. I
If you’re worried about using too much ink, you can certainly try 300dpi first. Depending on what you’re printing, 300dpi might be all you need.
HOW DO I PRINT FREE PRINTABLES FROM PINTEREST?
While you can print right from Pinterest, you definitely should not. What you should do is click the link on Pinterest that will bring you to the page that houses the actual printable. By doing this you are also getting the best quality of the printable.
HOW DO I CREATE A PRINTABLE?
The best way to create a printable is by using the website, Canva. Canva has many templates that you can choose from and modify.
If you prefer to create a printable from scratch, you can do that too. You can do this by clicking the “Create a Design” button from the top right hand corner of the screen and from there you can choose a specific size or make up your own custom size.
After you have your template chosen or your blank sheet to create from scratch, you’ll add graphics and text by using the menu on the left. Once your design is to your liking, click “DOWNLOAD” from the top left corner.
Choose “PDF Print” from the dropdown menu and then click download. Your print will download to your computer (usually defaults to the download folder on your computer) and from there you can print it out.
