THE FOURTH BUD

♥ HOW THE YEAR IN REVIEW TEMPLATES STARTED

Every holiday season I would think of writing a newsletter to send along with our usual greeting card to friends and family who live far. Except that writing a holiday newsletter did not come easily to me. So I never finished one. Then one day, inspired by really cool designers who’ve made their own quirky newsletters, I jumped in and worked on my family’s very first graphic holiday newsletter. I created a design where I could lightheartedly and briefly list all the significant goings-on in my family’s lives. Our family and friends loved it. I’d never gotten so many compliments about my holiday greetings in the many years I’d sent cards, until then.

Hence the beginning of the PDF templates that you see in my shop. I wanted to create interesting and fun to read newsletters. I wanted the design to showcase the events. I want people to find it easy and fun to write their life events through my newsletter template designs without having to learn Photoshop or other design software. And I want their recipients to enjoy reading their letters, just as it is fun to write them.

It's been a joy designing these pieces, so I hope that you enjoy using them as well!

♥ ABOUT THE NEWSLETTER TEMPLATES

The Year In Reviews / Newsletters are in PDF form and so entering information is so simple - you are literally just filling out a form! Just open the file in Adobe Reader, TYPE in your family's information, SAVE and PRINT! Insert it in your holiday cards or keep one for yourself as a record of your year.

♥ HOW TO USE THE PDF TEMPLATES

The templates are designed to be used ONLY with ADOBE READER for Windows PC or Mac. Using other PDF readers may cause the file to be unusable, but if this happens, simply download the file from Etsy again.

You may download Adobe Reader free at http://get.adobe.com/reader.

Additional policies and FAQs
FAQ / Help

1. Are the templates in PDF really easy to use?

Yes and that is exactly my goal. For this to happen, you need to use ONLY ADOBE READER for WINDOWS PC or MAC and not the Adobe Reader version for mobile devices/tablets and other systems.

Problems happen if the PDF is opened or viewed using PDF readers that is not Adobe Reader, such as Mac's default PDF reader called Preview, for example. This causes the PDF to be unusable. If this happens to you, just download the file again from Etsy. Carefully follow the instructions I've provided in your ReadMeFirst.pdf to make sure the file is only opened in Adobe Reader.


To download the template file again, click on the link emailed to you by Etsy, or you could go to "Your Account" on Etsy and then click on "Purchases" .

Adobe Reader can be downloaded free at http://get.adobe.com/reader.

2. Can I work on the PDF file on my iPad ?

No, the PDF file works only for Windows PC or Mac. The Adobe Reader app for mobile devices/tablets is not as full-featured and will only cause the PDF file to be unusable.

3. Can I change the font size?

The item descriptions will indicate if the template uses manual formatting or if the template has fonts that automatically resize (shrinks to fit) as you type in more information making all your text fit into the space allotted.

4. Can I change the font types?

The item descriptions will indicate if the template uses manual formatting or if the template has font types that are fixed. The fonts have been carefully selected to complement the overall design. If the fonts in your PDF don't match the sample in the shop, this means that the PDF had been opened first with a different PDF reader that is not Adobe Reader, such as Mac's default reader Preview. This disables some, if not all, of the template's features.

If this happens, simply download the file again from Etsy so you can have a fresh new working template, then carefully follow the instructions I've provided in your ReadMeFirst.pdf to make sure the file is only opened in Adobe Reader.

Adobe Reader can be downloaded free at http://get.adobe.com/reader.

5. Can you customize the template for me?

I'm sorry I am not currently able to take orders to customize the templates.

6. Can I print the 8.5" x 11" templates on 5x7?

I advise not to. If you are purchasing the size 8.5x11 (letter size), printing it as a 5x7 may make the newsletter's overall design and fonts look squished and tiny. The quality and colors may also be different from the original as well.

7. Can I put photos instead of text?

Unfortunately, an entry can either be text or photo, but not both. The product descriptions and images in my shop will let you know if the template includes a photo entry, and the sample product images will show you which entries are for photos.

8. Can I send my completed template to a printing place like OfficeMax or Fedex?

Yes, as long as you have worked on the file in Adobe Reader for Windows PC or Mac computer, saved the completed template, and are using a Windows PC or Mac to send/upload your finished template, you should be able to send/upload your file to OfficeMax, Fedex, or Staples for printing. Also, the file can be printed at any print shop as long as your print shop uses Adobe Reader to open the file on their computer system.

9. Can I make my completed 8.5 x 11 newsletter read only / not editable so I can EMAIL it instead of mailing it?

Yes you can. Instructions will depend on the kind of computer you are using (Windows PC or Mac) and they are at ...

http://thefourthbud.com/emailyourtemplate

Once the newsletter is converted into a non-editable pdf and then emailed, it can be viewed on Windows PC and Mac computer and mobile devices/tablets using any kind of PDF reader.
