how to purchase printables on etsy....

i assume everyone knows etsy.
but you know what happens when you assume..... yeah, that.
i also make the mistake that everyone 'gets' printables.
so today i'm gonna back up and do a quick crash course on buying printables from my shoppe.

first of all, what the heck are printables, right?
any paper goods you might want to purchase can be found in a 'printable' format. what that means is that the artist (me) has created an item for purchase - let's say a Christmas card - but instead of receiving the actual card, the customer (you) will received a digital copy of that item. and that digital copy may be in one of a few different formats. most popular is a .pdf or .jpeg.

so why not just send me the actual item?
short answer: cost and convenience. the item price would increase in order to cover my printing expenses. AND, with the digital file, you can print as many (or as few) of the item that your heart desires. you can use the printing option of your choice and everybody's happy!

here's some handy etsy shopping info:
