The following are a series of questions that I am frequently asked via email. Please read through these before sending me your enquiry as the answer may already be available below.
CAN WE FEATURE YOUR D.I.Y PROJECTS AND FREEBIES ON OUR BLOG?
I would love to be featured on your blog! Please feel free to post a couple of images as long as there is a credit and link back to the full article on on my site. As a courtesy I would greatly appreciate that you don't distribute any of my free PDF downloads from your site but rather link back to my original article page (not directly to the PDF!) so that your readers can download it from there. Thanks so much- I greatly appreciate it :)
CAN I GET A LABEL TEMPLATE WITHOUT THE TEXT INSIDE?
The only templates available are those that are currently on my site. If you wish to change any of them you will need to have a piece of software like Adobe Illustrator or something similar in order to remove the text or add new/different text.
CAN YOU PLEASE TWEAK THE DESIGN OF ONE OF YOUR FREEBIES AND SEND IT TO ME?
Unfortunately, no. I get quite a few requests from readers for customised designs, and it wouldn't be fair to help one without helping you all and there simply aren't enough hours in the day to do that! Even if you only request a minor tweak, these all add up. I hope you can understand that I would rather spend that time creating new content for Eat Drink Chic.
I LIKE YOUR JAM LABELS. CAN YOU PLEASE PROVIDE ME WITH A SPECIFIC FLAVOUR THAT IS NOT CURRENTLY AVAILABLE ON YOUR SITE?
Unfortunately, what you see is what you get! I don't have any labels in my collection other than the ones that are currently available for download on my blog. See above question regarding customised designs.
WHERE CAN I FIND THE DOWNLOAD FOR THE BIG SIGN IN YOUR ICE-CREAM PARLOUR ARTICLE?
I don't actually have the big sign available for download on my website. As a suggestion you could print out the smaller sign I've provided, take it to a photocopy place and get it enlarged to the size that you want.
HOW CAN I EDIT YOUR LABEL DESIGNS OR CREATE MY OWN?
To create the graphics for the ice-cream parlour and for all of my labels and stationery printables, I used a professional graphics software called Adobe Illustrator where I drew and designed everything from scratch (excluding some of the fonts used). You will need to have this program or something similar in order to change the colours, fonts, layout etc. or to create your own designs.
HOW DID YOU CREATE THE BACKDROP FOR YOUR ICE-CREAM SUNDAE PARLOUR?
For more info on the backdrop, please refer to the comments on the Ice-Cream Parlour post. In short, the backdrop was completely photoshopped into the image but there is some discussion and advice about how to create a real backdrop from some of the commentors.
CAN I USE OR EDIT ANY OF YOUR DOWNLOADABLE DESIGNS AS PART OF A:
- BLOG OR WEBSITE INTERFACE?
- LOGO, BRANDING OR SIGNAGE DESIGN ?
- PRODUCT LABEL?
- PARTY THAT I AM PROFESSIONALLY CATERING OR DESIGNING FOR?
- DESIGN FOR A CLIENT?
Nope, sorry! My designs are strictly for personal, non-commercial use. This means that they can't be used for anything related to a business including promotional material. You also may not distribute or sell my designs in any way. If you need further clarification on copyright, please email me.
