You're pretty amazing for supporting a small business!

My name is Marsali - welcome to my shop!

For each of these Play Mats, I design the layout, and then cut out all of the pieces by hand. I hand-draw any patterns (such as the wood grain on railroad ties), and then assemble the Play Mat, with my own kids' play habits in mind. Lastly, I scan the pages at 600 dpi, and create the digital file that you receive!

How this shop began:
My son ADORES trains. He especially loves mini train toys, and would ask me for a tiny track to match them. When I couldn't find what I was looking for online, I created my first "printable play mat" for him: I hand-cut tiny little train tracks and railroad ties, glued them onto paper, and laminated the whole thing. My lovely sister saw my creation and immediately said, "You could sell these on Etsy! I would buy this!"

A few months later, my little family was getting ready to move across the country for my husband's graduate school program. We knew we would be on a tight budget, and that any extra bit of income would help. My sister's suggestion led me to start day-dreaming about other Play Mats I could create - and then this Etsy shop was born! I sell printable, digital scans of each play met, so that you can quickly and easily print this toy at home, for your kiddos. I hope you enjoy these Printable Play Mats as much as we do!

These printables are designed to be made into folding, laminated Play Mats.

Thank you again for supporting my craft!

Frequently asked questions
How do I make my printable Digital Download files into a laminated, folding Play Mat, like in your photos?

Complete directions for this easy DIY are located here:

Do I have to make your printables into a Play Mat?

Not if you don't want to! In my experience, creating a double-sided, folding play mat is the easiest way to get lots of play time out of these printables. However, feel free to just play with the printed images, if you'd prefer!

How did you make these images?

I design the layout, and then cut all the pieces out by hand, oftentimes hand-drawing patterns (such as the wood grain on railroad ties). Once the spreads are all assembled, I scan the pages at 600 dpi, and create the digital file that you receive.

Do you do custom orders?

Send me a message, and let's explore the idea together!

Why don't you accept returns or cancellations of Digital Download Files?

Due to the immediate delivery of digital downloads, I cannot accept returns. (There is no way to "return" a file once it has been downloaded.)
Please note: while the EU distance selling laws give EU buyers the right to return products within 14 days of purchase, digital items are "exempt from the right of withdrawal." This means that digital download items, such as those in this shop, cannot be returned, exchanged, or canceled.

How do I access my purchased Digital Download files?

1. You can always access your Digital Downloads by clicking on the link in your original Order Confirmation email (sent to whichever email you used during checkout).

2. If you completed your purchase through your Etsy Profile/Etsy account, then you can access your digital files here:
Here are instructions showing how to access your files via your Etsy account:

3. If you completed your purchase on Etsy as a Guest, then you will need to link your guest purchase to an Etsy account. Here are instructions:

Can you email my files directly to me after purchase?

I use Etsy's built-in Digital Download delivery service to take care of all file deliveries. For both legal reasons and for EU VAT tax purposes, I do not email files directly to customers.

Can I use your products for commercial use? Or: Can I make changes to your product, and then resell it?

All products sold in this shop are For Personal Use only; you may make up to 5 copies/prints of a purchased download for your children or students, or to use as gifts. You are prohibited from using this file commercially (i.e. to make money in any way): copying the design or layout concept, selling the artwork or finished product, altering the artwork, or redistributing the file or finished product in any way. You may not share the file over email (except for the purpose of sending the file to a printer). If you would like to share this product with others, please share the link to our shop! Violating this policy would be considered copyright infringement and be subject to legal action. Thank you for abiding by copyright laws!

Can I make more than 5 copies/prints of a product, for my kids or students?

Yes, if you purchase an Extended Use License! A regular Printable Playmats purchase gives permission for you to make up to 5 prints/copies of the given product. When you add-on an Extended Use License to the purchase of any given item or product, you receive permission to print an additional 20 copies of a that Printable Playmat.
