Printables are party designs, templates and printable paper accessories to help you

toppers to personalize party favors , dessert tables, party scene, table decoration
and more! They give your party a handmade, DIY and custom touch without breaking
the bank! Files are dispatched to your by EMAIL only. You simply download them, print
and cut - For personal use only! Download instructions are provide, and a list of
materials and cut-out instructions are given with every template.
What materials do I need?
In most cases you need no more than a pair of scissors, a printer and white card
stock paper! But a circular 2" (5cm) round or scallop paper puncher, double-sided
tape, craft knife (x-acto knife) ruler, hot glue, lollipop sticks, hole puncher,
string or ribbon may also be required depending on the files you purchased. A list
of materials needed is given with each template.

I received the files but it requires a password! Help!
Files are password protected and the password emailed to you with the files. Please
check your email again. To open and print you use FREE Adobe Reader software. You
cannot edit files in Photoshop nor similar software.
How do I print the files?
The printables are emailed to you in PDF format. You use FREE Adobe Reader software
to open, customize the text (only in customizable files) and print at home or you
can also print at a professional printers - Please ensure you do a test print first
to check the colors of their printers is not too saturated! ANY desktop printer does
the job. Print items always at 100% quality with print scaling setting to "NONE"
to avoid your printout being automatically reduced. We always recommend you do a
test print well in advance of your party to ensure your are familiar with the designs
and templates, and always print on 100% quality.
The colors of printed items do not match the colors on the screen! What do I do?
Please note colors may vary depending on the PC monitor you use to view them on screen,
and the colors of each printer due to toner variations and saturation in color output,
as well as paper quality and type. We always recommend you do a test print well in
advance of your party to ensure your are familiar with the designs and templates,
and always print on 100% quality. You can perhaps try to compensate for this by adjusting
saturation color levels on your printer toner.
If you still not happy, we can change the colors for you at an additional fee. Please
ask for a quote.
How do I customize my editable files at home?
SOME files we sell can be customized by you digitally after purchase. You simply
open the files in Adobe Reader and type your text where indicated in the "blue" editable
areas. Please note:
* Edited text cannot be saved and you need to print at time of editing.
* Font styles of editable templates is set by us. You will not be able to change
the font styles after purchase.
Why can't I alter the fonts on my customizable template?
Although you can customize the files digitally in Adobe, the default font in Adobe
Reader is set by us and CANNOT be changed by you. If you'd like a different font,
please get in touch for a quote.
Can files be printed at professional printers?
All our products are sent as PDF files, which are password-protected. As such, you
cannot email the files to be printed at a professional printers online. You would
have to drag and drop the PDF onto a USB key or similar device, and then take that
in personally yourself to printers such as Staples or Kinkos.
I can't save my customizable file to take to my local printer! Please Help!
The files have to be edited and printed straight away, as Adobe also does not allow
saving of password-protected files. If this is not suitable, we can edit and email
you the finished templates and all you do is print. Please ask for a quote (subject
to design time availability).
What paper do you recommend for printing?
In most cases I use standard A4 (8.5" x 11") bright, white cardstock available from
most craft stores. Some templates require a lighter weight paper (maximum 160g) or
standard A4, in which case it's indicated on the file you get.
You may also want to use A4 label paper available online (Amazon) or craft stores
for items like party labels, bottle wrappers etc. Just print as normal on 100% quality
and punch or cut your templates following the instructions given. Another option
is also to print on matte photo paper, fabric transfer paper or anything else you
fancy! Just ensure you follow manufacturers instructions!
How do I cut the templates?
In most cases using craft scissors or preferably using a straigh ruler, x-acto knife
and cutting mat to protect your surfaces. You may also want to acquire a 2" (5cm),
a 1" 1/2 or a 2" 1/2 diameter round or scallop punch for cutting round party tags
and cupcake toppers.
You can buy them at Amazon, Michael's Jo-Anns's or online here: http://www.decocraft.co.uk/shop
We also advise you score some items before cutting or folding to avoid paper cracks.
You can do the scoring by using a bone folder or ball pen without ink!
Can I re-use the printables for another occasion?
You have unlimited use of the PDF files for personal use only for a duration of 3
months from the date they are sent. You may not share, distribute nor re-sell the
digital files nor the printed items. Bird's Party retains all rights. You may use
the printed items only for personal parties or if styling a party with the printables
