How to Download Printables

Yay! You bought a printable! 🎉

So, now what?

You’re probably wondering how to download your file and print it out so you can start using it.

So, here are some common download instructions to get that printable off of your computer and into your hands.


You’ll receive an email with the link to download your file. Click on the link and it should automatically start downloading. Choose where you would like to save the file. I like to save mine to the Documents folder, but some people prefer to save it to DropBox or another “cloud”. It doesn’t matter, just pick someplace where you’ll be able to find it when you’re looking for it.


If you don’t se the email, give it a few minutes. Sometimes emails can take up to 30 minutes to come through. Please check your spam, junk, etc. folders. I’ve had stuff show up in them more times than I can remember.


Please use a desktop or laptop for downloading your files. Most mobile devices such as smartphones, iPads, or other tablets will not allow you to download through a link.


All files are sent to you in PDF format. Most computers have a program called Adobe Reader pre-installed on them. However, if your computer doesn’t have Adobe or another PDF reader, you'll need to install one to view your new printable. You can download Adobe Reader for free here.


If you can't find the file once it's downloaded, try checking your Downloads folder under My Computer. Or search the title of the file on your computer. That cute printable can run, but it can’t hide.

Truthfully, I’ve never used a Mac, so I’m just relaying this information from I hope it helps you.
