How To

There are so many pretty pieces of art out there and you just don't have enough space on your walls to put them all up. But you want to share it with the world. Well, one of the easy ways is to use the artwork for greeting cards. While I prefer digital greeting cards - those can be easily stored forever, don't take up much space (just a few kB in your computer or a cloud) and are simply the most eco-friendly way to wish your beloved ones happy birthday, merry Christmas, congratulate them on their achievements as well as condole them and anything else between... I know many people won't give up printed cards for various reasons. So how to create a pretty greeting card (either for printing or for sending digitally)? Read below to find out easy steps.

Sometimes, you may want to have a printable that you'd prefer with a transparent background. For example, you'd want to use it as a sticker in your digital planner without an ugly looking white/solid rectangular border around the whole image. Depending on the file format and the actual artwork of the printable, there can be easy ways to achieve that. And also to create a solid white or coloured background. I'll tell you the quick and easy way to do this, where possible.

Printables can be resized while being prepared for printing - directly in printing settings. But if you want to resize a printable to save it for future use, you'll need to use some editing program. It also depends on what type of printable you have - whether the file is saved as PDF or an image, such as JPG or PNG. I'll show you how to deal with resizing both types easy way.

If you have a printable in a format that doesn't suit you, there are easy ways to convert digital files into different formats. Not all conversions will produce the best results but if your original file is of high quality, the result of any conversion should be quite satisfactory. It also depends on what program you're going to use. I'll show you the easy ways of conversions between different formats of printable art.

Most of us need to (or want to) organise our time, usually by using various planners and organisers. Digital planners are the ultimate eco-friendly type of planners. You don't even have to print it. And when they're at the end of their life span, they're easy to recycle - deleted just with a click of a button. If they're undated, you can reuse the template the next year as well as many years after - as long as you like it. But maybe you would like to personalise your planner or have it looking a bit different each year - while you like and want to keep the general looks of your favourite planner template. It's very easy to tweak your digital planner the way it will express your personality. I'll explain the easy steps.
