When you purchase a Bullet Journal Spread you usually download a ZIP file with all the needed files or an eBook with a link to download your ZIP file. This usually depends on the place where you've purchased the product.
For example: Some sites do not allow to upload ZIP files at all or they restrict the size of files to upload so you get an eBook with a link to your ZIP file.
In the end it doesn't matter. Let me give you an example if you purchase our Bookshelf Spread. In this case, if you get it from our store, you get a ZIP file since the download isn't that large.
What files are included?
You get files for your digital planner as well as printable for your Bullet Journal. So you basically have three options. You can wether import the JPG or PNG files into your Digital Planner (find a Tutorial here) or print the PDF according to your needs (you get a PDF in A4, A5 and US Letter Size). Once printed you can wether adhere your print to your Bullet Journal or use graphite paper* to transfer it.
How do you print your PDF?
A PDF has the advantage that it looks the same on each computer, no matter if you are on a Mac or a Windows Computer.
Whether you can just double-click the PDF and it opens immediately or you need a separate program which is called Adobe Acrobat Reader. No worries, it’s free. You can download it here if you don’t have it already. Please install it on your computer
Now let’s print your PDF.
Just do a right-click on your PDF and choose "Open with" and Adobe Acrobat Reader DC as the program to open your file with.
Now choose File/Print.
A new window opens, now you can select which pages you want to print or if you want to print them all.
That’s it! Now your printer should start printing your Spread.
You can find the Bookshelf Spread and many other in our Store.
