But we know kids can be tough customers when it comes to choosing the perfect cards for their friends or classmates because they often have an exact idea of what they want.

That’s it! It’s so simple and cute!
Sometimes we get questions about how to print files. Of course, it will all depend on your computer and especially, printer, but here are a few guidelines to follow.
First, we always recommend using Adobe Reader. Other generic PDF readers can cause problems, such as having empty spaces or black bars present when printing.
Second, make sure your printer settings are correct. To get the full-size cards, make sure you choose “actual size” or your printer’s similar setting.
Finally, double-check that the “print on both sides” dialog box is unchecked.
These two simple suggestions should help you easily get these printed and ready for your child.
