How to Print Your Journal, Planner, or Tracker after Purchase

After you complete your purchase, you’ll get an order confirmation email with a link to download your PDF file. All planners, journals, and habit trackers look great printed on standard letter-sized paper (8.5″x11″) as well as A5 paper (5.83″ x 8.27″). For best printing results, check the properties in your printer settings:

  1. Set paper orientation to landscape or portrait view, as appropriate for your specific digital item.
  2. Select the “fit” layout option or manually adjust paper sizing with the scale percentage option.
  3. Enable the print preview setting to make sure the entire page is visible before printing.
