The first download option you will see is PDF. There are many advantages to using the PDF. This articles will walk you through when to use a PDF and which options you may want to use with it.
When to download in PDF format
PDF's are great when you plan to print at home or at any office supply chain or copy and print center. Templett PDF's are vector files so the quality is very high and the text and other vector objects should remain perfectly sharp. Any raster images on the template will be 300 dpi.
You have two options that you can use when downloading as a PDF.
If you will be trimming your template yourself or you are getting the template printed at an office supply chain or copy and print center, there is a good chance you'll want to use the trim marks option. When using the trim marks option, a bleed is automatically added to the template. This helps when you are printing on the front and back of the page because when a page is flipped over in the printer and the back side is printed, the printer cannot always align the paper perfectly. In fact, there is usually always a small amount of shift. The bleed helps make this shift unnoticeable when the template is trimmed.
We recommend asking the shop where you are getting it printed if they prefer trim marks.
This option does exactly what the name implies. It's helps save paper by laying out the design multiple times on a sheet of paper. For example, if you are editing a 5"x7" template and you are ready to print, you may want to fit two templates to a page to save paper.
This option works with any size template as long as it's smaller than a sheet of paper. If we can fit multiples on one page, this option will do it.
After selecting the Save Paper option, you'll be able to choose the paper size. You can choose between US letter and A4 sizes.
Where are my files downloaded to on my computer?
All files downloaded from Templett will go to your default downloads folder on your computer. Alternately, most browsers will also show the downloaded files at the bottom of the browser window.
Files you've downloaded are automatically saved in the Downloads folder. This folder is usually located on the drive where Windows is installed (for example, C:\users\your name\downloads).
In recent versions of Mac OSX, the downloads folder can be accessed right from the Dock located at the bottom of your screen. Alternately, from the Finder, click Go from the menu bar and select Downloads. If you don't see a Downloads option under the Go menu, click Home. The downloads folder should also be visible in your Home folder.
If you still cannot find where the file has downloaded, you can do a search on your computer for "templett" since all files downloaded with have that in the filename.
