Little Tips from Me to You

Navigating the world of printables can be as exciting as it is intricate, particularly when dealing with high-quality jpeg images like our Vintage Motherhood Illustrations.

Here are some friendly nuggets of advice to ensure you make the most of your digital treasures:

Optimize Your Print Settings

Before printing, make sure your printer is set to the highest quality setting, especially if you’re printing at home. This ensures that all the subtle details and shadings in the illustrations are captured accurately.

Select the correct paper type in your printer settings. If you’re using specialty paper, like a heavyweight matte or glossy photo paper, telling your printer can make a big difference in output quality.

Paper Choices Matter

The charm of vintage illustrations is enhanced by the texture of the paper. For a truly authentic feel, opt for textured paper such as linen or cotton blends.

If you’re planning to sell your prints, consider acid-free paper which not only adds a professional touch but also ensures longevity of the print.

Color Consistency

Calibrate your monitor to ensure that the colors you see on screen are what you’ll get in print. There’s nothing more frustrating than a beautiful illustration that prints in unexpected hues.

Understand that jpegs are typically in an RGB color profile, which is great for digital screens but may vary when printed since printers use CMYK. You might want to do a test print to check for color accuracy.

Handling High-Resolution Images

Our illustrations come at 300 dpi, which is perfect for printing. However, resizing the image can affect the resolution. Always maintain the original aspect ratio to prevent stretching or squishing of the image.

If you do need to resize the image, use a high-quality image editor that allows you to adjust resolution without losing clarity.

Creative Display Ideas

Think beyond frames. These jpegs can be used to create hangable wall art on materials like wood, canvas, or metal for a modern twist on the vintage aesthetic.

For a creative project, try decoupage with these illustrations on furniture or home decor items, sealing them with a clear varnish for durability.

Always double-check the licensing agreement to ensure you’re using the images within the allowed terms, especially if you’re selling items made with these illustrations (see FAQ’s below for more details, or feel free to reach out and ask if you’re unsure).

Stay Organized

Keep your digital files organized with clear naming conventions and folders for easy access, especially if you’re handling multiple collections for various projects.
