FAQs

If you're like us, you like to know the details before you buy something. To help you get prepared, we've listed some of the questions we're frequently asked. Also, check out our blog about printables and all of the things you can do with them.

What supplies will I need for your printables?

Scissors, hot glue, glue stick, ribbon, toothpicks, small hole punch, circle craft punches, white printer paper, white cardstock and sticker adhesive paper.

How do I open your files?

You will first need to open the zipped file. On a Mac, just double click it and your computer will unzip it for you. On a PC, open the zipped folder, then drag the file or folder from the zipped folder to a new location.

Once you have the file unzipped, you'll use Adobe Reader to open the pdfs.

Can I download the files on my phone or tablet?

Please download all files to your desktop or laptop computer. Due to the large file sizes and zipped folders, they typically won't download to your phone or tablet.

What type of paper do I need for printing?

We recommend either regular white printer paper and/or white cardstock, depending on what you are printing. All of our printables should be printed on 8.5 inch x 11 inch paper.

On what paper should I print the stickers?

We find Avery brand 2 inch adhesive sticker paper works the best. Print the stickers and then use scissors to cut out the designs. Peel off adhesive paper backing to attach.

You can also use a 2 inch craft circle paper punch to cut a precise circle. We recommend EK Success's EK Tools 2” Circle Punch.

Is there anything else I need to know before printing?

Be sure your printer is set to print borderless/marginless or full bleed at 8.5 inches x 11 inches. All of our printables must be printed with a no margin setting to allow the designs to print at the correct size.

What if I am going to take my files to a print shop to be printed?

Please save your files onto a flash drive or cd/dvd if you plan to print your files at a print shop.

What is that blue box I see on the editable printables?

Any items that you can customize will show a blue editable box on your computer screen when you are typing. Don't worry, this box will not show on the printed piece.

What about color variation?

When colors are printed they can vary depending on the type of computer you are using, as well as printer ink and paper. Printers may also print in various colors. Perfectly Printed Parties is not responsible for any color variation. Since there are so many factors involved in printing your items, there will be absolutely no refunds nor revisions of color or design.

What items are included in each printable collection?

Below you will find a list of all items included in our printable collections, along with instructions for each item.
