Some designers like the DIY approach and we totally get that, so we created a line of do it yourself products just for you! If you can set up files with crops on a 12 x 18 sheet, these products will make you happy. Our DIY Sheets come in most of our paper stock options and require you to set up your files on one sheet, complete with crops, unless you are cutting them yourself. The sheet size is 12 x 18, but make sure your files are within the printable area of 11.5 x 17.

Creating DIY sheets with custom designs can be a fun and creative way to personalize your projects. Here's a simple process to make your own custom-designed sheets:
Choose Your Design: Decide on the design you want to create on your sheet. It could be patterns, illustrations, or any other artwork that you want to incorporate.
Digital Design: Use graphic design software or online design tools to create your custom design. You can draw or create patterns digitally or scan hand-drawn artwork for digitization.
Printing Options: a. Home Printer: If you have a printer at home, you can print your designs directly onto plain white paper or cardstock. Make sure to adjust your printer settings for the best print quality. b. Professional Printing: If you want higher quality prints or need a larger quantity, you can use professional printing services or local print shops. They can print your designs on different paper types or sizes.
Transfer Techniques: a. Decoupage: Print your design on regular paper and use decoupage glue to adhere it to surfaces like wood, glass, or fabric. b. Iron-On Transfers: Print your design using iron-on transfer paper, following the instructions provided. Then, transfer the design onto fabric or other suitable materials using an iron. c. Stickers: Print your designs on sticker paper, then cut out the designs and use them as stickers for various applications.
Hand-Drawn Designs: If you prefer a more artistic approach, you can draw or paint your designs directly onto plain paper or cardstock using pens, markers, watercolors, or other art mediums.
Finishing Touches: Once you have your custom-designed sheets, you can further embellish them with additional art, stickers, or glitter to add more flair and personality.
Remember to experiment and have fun with your designs. You can create custom stationery, scrapbook pages, gift wrap, or any other craft project using your custom-designed sheets.
