Q: I just purchased one of your free printables but I can’t get them to download. What do I do?
A: Once you complete the check out process you should be able to view and download your free files. In the event that this doesn’t happen immediately go to www.thegirlcreative.com/my-account. Sign in using the username and password you created at checkout. Once you are logged in you will see a list on the left hand side of the screen. Click on ORDERS and you will see a list of all of your purchases.
Q: Where can I get the fonts that you use in your printables?
Q: Do you always use free fonts in your designs?
A: Not always. If I am going to purchase fonts, I prefer to purchase them in bundles. Fontbundles.net is my go-to site for buying fonts. Each bundle includes COMMERCIAL USE LICENSES which is awesome, especially if you create printables or designs for profit. Bundles are super affordable too – roughly $29 for a bundle of 30-40 fonts. You can’t beat that price!
Q: What kind of paper should I print my printables out onto?
A. It all depends on what you are designing. If you are creating subway art or word art, I recommend card stock. If you are creating labels, I always go with full sheet labels and then use paper punches to cut them out.
Q: What are your favorite paper punches?
A. EK Tools is my favorite brand for paper punches. They aren’t bulky and can be stacked on top of each other making for easy storage. For cupcake toppers, tags and labels I recommend the EK Tools flourish punch, the EK Tools 2″ circle punch and the EK Tools 2.25″ scallop punch. I own all 3 of these and they are my favorites.
Q: What program do you use to create your printables?
A. I use Paint Shop Pro. It was the first graphic design program that I ever used and I love it. You can create designs, edit photos and a whole lot more with it.
Q: I see that your free printables are offered in PDF format. How do you create PDF’s?
A. It’s super simple. I shared a tutorial here.
