I have tons of free printables here at OneMamasDailyDrama.com and more for purchase in the Keri Houchin Design Shop.
If you’re having a problem with downloading or printing, this page has tons of tips and helpful tutorials. If you don’t find the answer to your question below, feel free to send an email to Keri (at) OneMamasDailyDrama.com with specific details about where you’re having trouble.
All printables on OneMamasDailyDrama.com and for sale on any Keri Houchin Design portal (Etsy, Gumroad, or this site) are for personal use only. That means you can save and/or print them to use at home or in a small, personal group setting such as a daycare, kids club, school, or birthday party. These cannot be sold, handed out to large groups, or used by any for-profit business.
If you want to link to one of my printables from your blog or website, please link to the blog post, not the PDF download page. You may use one photo with your own original text.
How to download
To download any of the printables on this blog, click on the big pink button that says “Click here to download the printable.” Older posts are still being updated and may only have a text link instead of a button.
You may need to allow popups, let the download open in a new window, or give permission. Download usually work better on desktop and laptop computers, rather than tablets or phones.
Users have also reported issues with Internet Explorer and Firefox. I recommend Google Chrome because that’s what I use on Mac and PC.
Unzipping and file errors
Downloads are zipped for security, so you’ll need to unzip the file before opening or printing. On a Mac, double-click the zipped file icon. On a PC, right-click and select “Extract All.”
Tablets and smartphones aren’t great with zipped files but there are some workarounds. On an iPad, your download should open in a new tab and asks which app you want to use. I recommend you save it to your iCloud. From the iCloud, you can click on the file to preview it and then send it to any app without unzipping.
If you get an error or it says the file is corrupt or damaged, make sure the file extension just says NameOfTheFile.PDF on the extracted file. (Macs are weird about showing or not showing extensions, which is why they sometimes don’t get along with PCs.) You can change the file name and rename it something else and that will often resolve the error.
- All printables are in PDF format. This ensures that they print looking the pretty much the same as they appear online. (Your printer colors may vary a bit.) You need a PDF reader, like Adobe Reader or Preview.
- Unless otherwise stated in the post, all of my printables fit on regular 8.5×11-inch computer paper. Some printables might work better on cardstock.
- You’re also welcome to have any of the printables printed at an office/copy shop or your local library. They shouldn’t give you any trouble, but if someone refuses to print something, please let me know.
Planner printing tips
My printable planner is the most popular download, so it needs a few tips on its own.
Printing double-sided: I printed my planner on both sides of the paper so it takes up less space. To print all the pages you want, double-sided, tell your printer to print a page range and list the page numbers that you want to be printed in order. Be sure to check the box to print on both sides.
Here’s a screenshot that may help. Your computer might look a little different. Some printers do not let you print the same page twice in one print job, so you may need to print all the front sides and then print all the backsides.
Printing the half sheet A5 size: You can actually purchase A5 sized paper, although I haven’t done it myself. To print 5.5×8.5-inch pages on regular 8.5×11-inch paper, set your printer to print 2 pages per page. Depending on your printer settings, you may need to tell it to print the pages at around 50%.
