Q. What kind of printer do you have?
My printer is one of my most used tools, so I need something reliable and awesome! I have an HP Envy Photo Printer and love it (I recommend 7155, 6255 or 7640). My favorite feature? BORDERLESS photo printing... a bonus that comes in handy for a printables fanatic like me!
YES!! I have it, I love it - and have been using it for over THREE years! There are various plans, I chose the $9.99 a month for 300 pages. My printer automatically communicates with HP and they auto-ship my ink when my printer tells them I need it. Now, I never run out and those $100+ ink purchases at Sam's finally ceased. I would HIGHLY recommend, especially if you LOVE printing in color like I do! They have plans as low as $2.99 per month, so definitely worth checking out!

Q. What kind of paper do you use?
The REAL secret behind printing great printables is using high quality paper with your printer's BEST Quality print setting. With glossy papers, the ink will sit "on top" of the paper and not be absorbed by the paper's fibers which ultimately "dulls" the look of your ink. I figure I'm USING the ink anyway - I might as well let it POP off the paper as compared to letting it soak in and be dull! Below are my GO TO papers for all of my printable projects:
There are actually lots of ways to add text to any PDF... I'll list a few of them below:
USING WORD:Open Word (first), click "OPEN" and choose the PDF you want to add text to. Word will automatically convert it and you can add text using the "insert text box" function. This option can be done on any 2013 Word version or newer.
USING ADOBE READER:You can use the "add comment" function when it's open in Adobe Reader. Need the most current version, it's free! -->https://get.adobe.com/reader/
USING A FREE ONLINE PDF EDITOR:I likewww.pdfescape.com/(but there are lots of others, just do a search to find one you like). You simply upload the PDF, use their editing tools (the free ones), then download and save with your changes. Fancier edits can be done with fancier (not free) programs... some free websites do have file size limits.
USING A MAC:If you are a MAC user, a customer recently did a YouTube Tutorial on how to add text to my printables using the App “Previews”. Here’s the link:https://bit.ly/2Vs3w8g
