FAQ

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 tabloid 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.

2.5 Inch Circle Punchers for Happy Saints Badges

If you plan on printing and making round badges from the Happy Saints eBooks, a hole puncher will be very helpful indeed. The badges in the ebooks are 2.5 inch in diameter if you print them at 100% size.


Here are some 2.5 inch circle punches you can buy from Amazon. Product links are below the image. You can also consider fancier types, such as those with scalloped edges.



Disclosure: I do not have affiliate links for the links below. I personally own the Uchida punch and find it very good.

Extracting Images from Happy Saints eBooks for Personal Projects

Note: This was posted last September but I am reposting it here because All Saints' Day is approaching fast and many people are purchasing my ebooks for the occasion. If you plan to make some paper crafts out of the artworks in the ebooks, here are the instructions!

Extracting Images from Happy Saints eBooks 
(for Personal Projects)

The Happy Saints collection of printable ebooks has been hugely popular among parents, schools, parishes and ministries for their religious activities. The high-quality artworks can printed for personal, private and non-commercial projects.

The high-quality artworks are formatted as posters, cards, coloring pages and badges; but sometimes users want to customize them for their own games and activities. Many people have asked me how to extract the images from the ebooks for their own projects.

All Happy Saints ebooks are locked and password-protected for copyright reasons. You will not be able to directly open them in professional softwares such as Photoshop or Illustrator.

To copy images from the ebooks, you can use the Snapshot tool in Adobe Reader:
  1. Open the ebook in Adobe Reader
  2. Click on Edit > Take a Snapshot
  3. Click and drag to select the area of the image desired.
  4. Paste the copied image into your editing software e.g. MS Word, Photoshop etc.

Copied Images Too Blurry Or Pixelated
If you find that the pasted image is too low quality and pixelated, you may need to tweak the settings in your Adobe Reader.
  1. Click on Edit > Preferences.
  2. Go to the 'General' section.
  3. Check 'Use fixed resolution for Snapshot tool images' and set the number of pixels/inches  to 300.
  4. Try extracting the image again.

I hope this helps for those of you who are making your own custom Happy Saints activities! Please do share them with me by emailing some photos, if you can. 

New titles are being constantly added to the ebook collection. Visit the catalog here: http://www.happysaints.com/p/ebooks.html



Thank you and God bless!
