Motivating kids to do house chores with Happy Saints coins


Motivating kids to do house chores with Happy Saints coins  

I found this cool blog post at Humble Dwelling, sharing a neat idea on rewarding kids for cleaning up and helping with house chores. The Happy Saints printable badges were made into coins the kids can earn by doing house chores, and exchange for cool rewards in the ‘family store’. 

Check out the blog here:

Addendum to Happy Saints Liturgical Calendar 2014

I have just updated the Happy Saints Liturgical Calendar 2014 e-Poster with a small improvement (addendum): 

9 November 2014 is now indicated as the Feast of the Dedication of the Lateran Basilica (color: white). It was indicated as 'Ordinary Week 32' in the original calendar.

Please note that both old and new versions are acceptable and correct either way. If you have already purchased the calendar, you may download the updated version using the same download link sent to you. Please email me at victorteh(a)yahoo.com if your link has expired.

New purchases will receive the updated version. The e-Poster is available here:

Thank you and I apologize for any inconvenience caused!

Enlarging Happy Saints e-Posters

As you may know, I have two printable e-posters currently available:

2014 Liturgical Calendar:
http://www.happysaints.com/2013/11/happy-saints-liturgical-calendar-2014.html

All Saints:
http://www.happysaints.com/2013/10/all-happy-saints-poster.html

Both posters are optimized to be printed at US letterhead or A4 paper size. Some customers asked me how large they could print the posters without being pixelated or blurry. I have personally taken the posters to a professional print shop and enlarged them to 200% without changing image resolution.

The final artwork printouts, which measured 20 inch by 16 inch, turned out to be very sharp and clear. Of course, they were not high-definition at that size but they still looked good, not pixelated or blurry at all. 

I have attached some photos here of the printouts next to an iPhone 5c for comparison. Of course, it’s difficult to see the actual sharpness from these photos but just to give you an idea how large the posters can be printed without losing sharpness. I can assure you that printing them at 200% will still look fine.

I hope this clarifies some of your concerns!

FAQ for 'All Happy Saints' Poster



I have received quite a number of enquiries regarding the latest 'All Happy Saints' e-poster. Here are some FAQs. The product page will also include this information:

Can I print a larger version of the e-poster?
Yes, the artwork measures 3000 x 2400 pixels at 300dpi. It should look good even at twice the original size. 

Can I print in A4 size?
Yes, print at 100% scale to maintain the 8"x10" dimensions. For A4, the top and bottom edges of the artwork are very close to edges of the paper. Be sure to check your printer's margin settings. 

Can I send the digital file to a print shop to do the printing?
Yes, as long as the printout is for personal and non-commercial use. A fine print at the bottom of the e-poster states that you can print it for personal use, in case some print shops ask for the permission.

Can I print multiple copies of the e-poster for my school or parish?
Yes, up to 50 copies and only for non-commercial (not for sale) purposes within the school or parish. I greatly appreciate that you purchase one e-poster for every 50 copies that you print.

Can I use the artwork to make cards and other paper crafts?
Yes, use the 'snapshot' tool in Adobe Reader to copy the artwork, and paste  into your image editor software.

Can I use the artwork in my blog or website?
No, the digital artwork may not be shared or distributed online.

Can I use the artwork in my printed publication?
No, the artwork is for personal use only. For licensing enquiries, please email me.

For all other questions, please email me.
