PRINTABLE DOWNLOAD FAQs
How do the “Name Your Price” free printables work?
Just as it sounds! Simply enter a price (or leave blank to download for free) then click on “add to cart” and finish the checkout process.
I never received my email receipt…
Our emailed receipts are sent immediately upon successful purchase and are usually delivered within a minute or two of your order placement. If you haven’t received yours, be sure to check your junk/spam folder first. If your email never arrived, feel free to email us at email@example.com (or use the contact form below) to receive an email with your printable as an attachment.
How can your printables be used?
We love seeing our free printables used in the wild, but it’s important we share just a few stipulations. All of our printables are for personal use and non-profit educational purposes, which means they can only be used in non-commercial projects. They are also copyright-protected, which means they must be printed as-is, with all of our branding and copyright information included.
Acceptable uses include:
- Personal projects with family or friends
- As a free resource for use in non-profit settings such as classrooms, libraries, museums, public continuing education courses, after-school programs or other not-for-profit activities
- Shared photos of your completed printable projects on personal social media
Our personal use printables cannot be used for:
- Commercial projects, resale, or bundling with your own projects or printables
- For-profit educational purposes, such as private art classes, camps, etc
- Redistribution via email, social media or as a self-hosted download on your own site
- Physical or digital paid advertisements
- Native apps, web apps, or games
How are your printables delivered?
Once you’ve hit the checkout button, you’ll be directed to a page where you can click on your free printable to download the zip file. You’ll also receive a receipt with the download link via the email address you provided at checkout.
Why do your free printables offer an option to pay?
We believe it’s important for all kids and families to have equal access to artful projects and creative learning, which is why we want to offer a selection of printables that will always be available for free.
We also don’t want to force visitors to sign up for a mailing list they may not wish to follow.
That said, in the interest of supporting ourselves and fellow creatives, we moved to the “name your price” system to remind visitors that creativity has value.
I love your printables – how can I share them?
Did you download a project that you or your kids adore? Fantastic! We encourage spreading the love and letting others know! The only thing we ask is that you share on your own website or social media accounts with “best practices” in mind…
- Please do share the full link and link back to our original post rather than hosting the project instructions, multiple photos, or printable itself on your own website or social media
- Please do credit us with a link, mention and tag when applicable
- Please do not alter our original photos or crop watermarks when sharing
Do you offer commercial licensing of any kind?
Commercial license options are available for some of our printables – feel free to email us at support@barleyandbirch for more information or with specific inquiries.
I haven't received my printable. What can I do?
Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org (or use the form to the side) to let us know of the issue. We’ll confirm your order and email you the printable file directly!
What kind of files are your printables?
Some will also come with plain text instructions files or folders with JPEGS/PNGs, etc.
I don't like the printable I purchased, can I return it?
Unfortunately, due to the nature of printable download files, we don’t offer any refunds on our printables unless the same printable was accidentally purchased twice or there are similarly unique circumstances.
All of our product listings provide a detailed description of what the printable includes, sizes, and thumbnail previews of each page so there isn’t any confusion about what is included in a downloadable printable set.
I have questions about a specific printable - can I contact you?
Yes! Please feel free to! We’re happy to answer any questions you might have about any of our printable files!
Have a project of ours that you absolutely loved making and want to shout it out from the rooftops? WOOHOO! We love having our projects shared on social media and websites – we just require that you link back to our full tutorial and our download rather than providing the direct download link on your site. Our files are never to be hosted on your own websites or blogs.
Tags and Mentions
Have pics of your b&b printable project you want to share? Yay! Be sure to tag @barleyandbirch on social media so we can check out your creations!
