Printing your printable art
What is printable art?
Printable art is presented in a digital format which allows the purchaser access to the files in moments. It is both cost-effective and easy to manage. No waiting for the post, no shipping costs.
Most homes have access to a basic printer and can have their print hung in minutes.

How do I access my files?
- 1. If you purchased on Etsy, you will receive an email shortly after payment with a download link. If you don’t receive the email, it may have gone into your spam folder – you can easily access your files by logging into Etsy and viewing your purchases. These are under your profile in the dropdown menu.
- 2. Etsy only allows five files to be uploaded to the printable art listing. As most of our prints contain more than five files, a zip file will usually be included. These can easily be opened on your computer by double-clicking the zip file.
- 3. Where there is more than one print, such as a set of 3 prints included in the listing, you will receive a PDF upon purchase, and included in the PDF is a link to download the files either in Dropbox or Google drive. All the files are named with the sizes.
- 4. Once you have downloaded your print, it is now time to print. You can do this either on your home printer or upload them to an online print shop.

What kind of paper should I use?
Please use good quality art paper, and this can be of a watercolor finish which works particularly well with artwork created in watercolor. Or you can use photo paper or matt cardstock.
Most online print shops have a selection.
Printing at home
Please ensure you use the fit-to-page setting or 100% sizing. Ensure the image covers the whole page.
As there are several printer aspects, these are guidelines only. Please ensure you disable any color management settings of your printer.
Can I upload the designs to my shops?
All the designs in the Etsy shops are copyrighted to me and are not permissible for commercial use in any format.
Please do not upload to any print-on-demand stores such as Alibaba or Taobao. This is not permissible.
Please do not share the download link with anyone or use our artwork for profit in any way.
Can I get a refund?
I will refund any purchase if the print quality is directly related to the file quality. i.e., there is a mark on the print file or a mistake.
Otherwise, due to the nature of the digital artwork, no refunds are allowable under the Etsy policy I have agreed to.
Can I share my prints on Social media?
Please share your images on social media and tag me on Instagram @trina_creates – I’d love to see them.
