So what are printable stamps..
Another name for printable stamps that you may be familiar with is Digital Images. They are images that you print out using your home printer...
Prior to January 1st, 2013 all of our printables only came in PDF format..All new printables are now being offered in PDF and JPEG formats.
You treat printable images just like you would a rubber or clear stamp, the only difference is that you print out the images and then you would color in just like you would any other stamped image..ie: Copics, water color pencils or water color pens..
What are cutting files....
cutting files are files that come in the format of WPC, SVG, PDF and MTC (THE MTC FORMAT has been added to all new cutting file added after January 1st 2013).
These cutting files can be cut out using a variety of cutting machines...If your cutting machine accepts one of the formats above (svg, wpc, pdf), you will be able to use your machine to cut the files out..
NO NEED TO WORRY if you don't have a cutting machine...
THE FILES ALSO COME IN PDF FORMAT...the cutting files that come in PDF FORMAT are different then the pdf printable stamps..THE DIFFERENCE is that the pdf printable stamps are meant to work like a stamp...print out and color in etc...verses the PDF CUTTING FILES are used for paper piecing..the images are broken up on the pdf for paper piecing together...
So remember even if you don't have a cutting machine, the cutting file will also come in PDF format for hand cutting and most of all the cutting files are very basic and easy to cut out...the final product will be based upon how you embellish it and the papers you use.
You only need to purchase a file once because it can be used over and over again..
PLEASE NOTE THE FOLLOWING: - ADOBE READER
To be able to open the PDF files, you will need to have ADOBE READER installed on your computer............here is the link to the latest ADOBE READER...the program is free to download:
How and When will I get my order:
All of our files released starting from January 2013 are instant downloads. Meaning that after you paid for your order, you will get an email that will contain your download link. The link will be sent to the SAME email you used to pay for your order within paypal.
If you purchase a set that was released PRIOR to January 2013, it may not be an instant download - we are currently in the process of converting all of our files into instant downloads but it will take some time.
