If you have a home printer and you are comfortable printing your own files, then printing your DIY Design Journal will be a breeze.
To download and view your file for printing, you'll need to install the latest version of Adobe's Acrobat Reader. You can grab that application for free via Adobe's website here.
If your home printer will print double-sided (i.e. duplex), then you can save some trees by printing your DIY Design Journal double-sided. Our Lettter Size Design Journals are 36 pages long, so they'll require 18 sheets of paper if you print double-sided.
Our Mini-Sized DIY Design Journals are 56 pages long, but are intended to print on half-sheets of letter-sized paper. That means you'll print 4 pages per sheet of paper (double-sided) and you'll use 14 sheets of paper in all.
The beauty of our printable PDF files is that you can print additional pages if you want. For example, you might want to print extra layout pages for your Color Inspirations or extra Furniture product pages for all your new furniture ideas. We designed our DIY Design Journals to be super flexible and highly customizable.
Adobe's Acrobat Reader software has a variety of printing options built into it, and the specifics of how you can print your DIY Design Journals really depend on your own printer's capabilities. If you are uncertain if your printer can handle booklet printing, then check your User's Manual. Can't find it? (Been there, done that!) You can likely find your printer's User Manual online.
We recommend you do some test printing before you get started. Then, you'll have confidence that your DIY Design Journal will print out properly without killing too many trees in the process.
We've put together some very detailed printing instructions, should you need them.

Don't want to print your own DIY Design Journal? There's no need to print your DIY Design Journal if you really don't want to. Install Adobe Reader on your computer, download and save your DIY Design Journal to your own computer, then grab a notebook or sketchbook and follow along.
Or, consider buying a hardcopy version of our DIY Design Journals here. We offer Mini-Size and Letter Size versions, with different color cover options, so you can find one you like.
