All files are 300 dpi, (2500 x 3300 pixels for 8.5 x 11's and 3600 x 3600 pixels for 12 x 12's). They can be printed as many times as you desire on the paper type of your choice.
Many of the items are in a .zip format for download. This allows multiple files to be packaged together so they don't have to be downloaded one at a time. Once the .zip file is downloaded and saved to your computer, it must be "unzipped" to access the individual files therein. Most computers today come installed with the software to accommodate this and double-clicking on the zip file will start the "unzip" or extraction process.
You can choose to download the format you desire. Jpg files will download much faster and if you're just going to print these or they're being used as a full-sized background, that's likely the format you want. .Png files are much larger in size and so take much longer to download, but if you are going to be utilizing these in photo editing software, this is the format you want. In .png files, there is a transparent background around the image, so you can layer it over any background you wish in your photo editing software, most of which will open and work with .png files. The .pdf files are read only and cannot be edited unless the item description specifically states otherwise.
If the format you desire is not listed in the description, please ask and usually I can provide those for you.
Printing Tips and Information
Printing on front and back:
If you have a printer that has a borderless option, use that for the patterned or solid color you're also printing on the back of your project sheet.
If you don't have that option, print the front first and make certain when you put it in the printer to print on the back that you have the top of the page inserted in the printer so that it will be the first end to be printed on. Otherwise, if you put it "upside down," when the back is printed, the white border areas that don't get printed may not match up on the front and the back and when you cut out cards, for instance, they may have areas of white on the back that was outside of the patterned printing area.
The paper you print on does make a big difference in the quality of your print. A low quality, low brightness copy paper will generally give you a poor print if you're printing colored images.
My favorite paper for printing most items is a double-sided photo-quality matte finish paper of at least 58 lb. weight. I find it works much better than general scrapbooking cardstock in terms of the color and sharpness of the images. Staples carries a house brand called Double-Sided Matte Photo Supreme and I find the quality is just as good as any of the slightly more expensive name brand equivalents.
However, when you need a lighter weight paper for things you're going to decoupage, for instance, you want to go with the highest quality paper within your weight range in terms of finish and brightness. Look for something that is specified as at least 90 brightness or super-bright white. 98 or 100 are even better. Presentation paper will generally give you a better quality print than a standard photocopy paper.
You generally will want a matte-type finish on the paper as opposed to a gloss.
Even if you have the best, highest quality paper in the world, your results will not be what they could be if you don't have your printer set properly for that particular paper. Make sure you are familiar with your printer settings and the results you will get with different settings on different paper. When you open up your print command box, there should be a box to click that says "Settings," "Preferences," "Options," or some similar thing. Clicking on that will open up your printer settings, another box with several different selectable tabs. Generally, it defaults to open on the Paper/Quality tab, which is where you want to be. There are two items in this section that you need to select the proper setting for to get the best quality print.
First is the print quality. Somewhere within that box will be a line that says "Print Quality," with a down arrow to the right of the line. You want at least a 300 dpi setting or "highest quality" setting.
Second and perhaps most important is selecting the paper you are using to print on. The location and wording of this option will vary from printer to printer, but you're looking for something similar to "Paper Options" where it has size, source, type selections. You want to select the Type of Paper option, and again, the choices and wording are going to vary from printer to printer.
The following chart is a rule of thumb guide for averages for different paper types which you can use to select the paper option best suited to your paper. It's also helpful in selecting the best paper for what you intend to print:
