About

KB and Friends: A mother and daughter venture

Welcome to KB and Friends, where we specialize in vintage, retro and whimsical designs. Our products include alphabet flashcards, scrapbooking embellishments, invitations and scrapbook mini albums.

I discovered my love for making digital graphics by serendipity. I volunteered to make the memory book for the cast and crew of a play my son was in so I designed it on my computer.

I've been creating digital graphics ever since. My mother soon joined me, and now we spend almost every day together.

We've been selling our digital designs online for more than a decade now, and our graphics have been used by thousands of crafters, scrapbookers, teachers and do-it-yourselfers and our work has been featured in books and magazines.

We invite you to sign up for our newsletter at http://eepurl.com/M9RvH for news about new products, sales, special offers just for newsletter subscribers and freebies.

Frequently asked questions
How can I edit a do-it-yourself invitation?

Our editable PDF invitations may be edited only with Adobe Acrobat Reader DC software for a Mac or PC. If you are having troubles adding or changing text on one of our invitations, make sure you are using the free Adobe Acrobat Reader DC software on a Mac or PC. These editable PDF invitations will not work with generic PDF reading software.

How do I print a two-sided invitation on my home printer?

When you print one of our two-sided invitations, you'll need to know how your printer works. In particularly, you'll need to make sure that your printing software is not set to "fit to media" or "fit to page." Your particular printer may use different terminology. In all cases, though, if your software doesn't print the invitation at 100 percent resolution, that will result in the invitation being printed in a different size. When it is printed in a different size, the front won't match up with the back. So make sure that your printer is printing the invitations at their actual size.

What if I don't want to print my invitations on my home printer?

Our editable PDF invitations are set up to be printed on a home printer.

If you are planning to have your invitations professionally printed, we strongly suggest that you purchase our option to have us add your text so that we can also create the invitation in a file format that is more easily accessible by professional printers. The cost includes the invitation: http://www.etsy.com/listing/285864927/customized-personalized-digital

If you decide to take the editable PDF invitations to a print shop or printing company, they may not be able to print the invitations properly. The biggest issue is that the text that you added may not show up.

What is a ZIP file?

Many of our digital products are delivered as a .ZIP file. The .ZIP contains a folder with multiple files inside.

Most computers come with software that can unzip, or extract, a .ZIP file just by double clicking on it. Some computers don't have such software, so you'll have to make sure you have by downloading it from the Internet.

If you don't unzip, or extract, the .ZIP file, you won't be able to access the files that you have purchased and which are inside of the .ZIP file.
