Digital Printing 101 - Lesson 2

Last week I gave you a glimpse into printing your digi files.  If you missed the post - make sure you go back and read up before we move to this week's lesson. 

Did you know that you could type on your digital files in Acrobat?

Most of the printables that I download come in the Acrobat format. While you can add text with other graphics programs, I wanted to show you how to do this technique inside Adobe Acrobat.

This card is a great example of a hybrid project. The papers used to create the card are from Marion Smith's Mad Tea Party Collection.  She gave the prototype papers at CHA. Check with your local retailers for availability - the collection is shipping in September.

The journal card that has the card sentiment on it, is from Marion's digital collection Scarlet.  The downloads are distributed in Acrobat.  I used the Papyrus font to add the sentiment in Acrobat - then I printed it to add to my card. 

Here is how it is done....

Here is a quick video showing you how to use Adobe Acrobat Reader & Adobe Acrobat Pro to type out your journaling on your  digital files.  

You may need to adjust your computer's volume the software captures my voice "soft".

NOTE:   Some conditions set by the author of the document could  prevent you from being able to do this in Reader since Reader was created  for "viewing purposes".

Download the Adobe Reader for free here!

Thank for stopping in today,
