The Graphics Version

The graphics version is for those people who:

  • Have problems printing with the supplied PDFs because of their printers (or cranky Acrobat settings).
  • Want to use a different layout programs, such as Freehand, Illustrator, CorelDRAW or OpenOffice.org Draw.
  • Use Avery perforated forms, or similar, and want to paste the D*I*Y templates into their regular layout program.
  • Use different paper sizes and want to arrange the templates to make the best use of space.
  • Want to make minor modifications to the templates such as changing colours, titles, spacings or supplied text.
  • As this covers quite a number of possibilities and setups, they cannot all be covered here. What we can recommend is to try layouts using the free OpenOffice.org Draw (you can put a different card on each 'slide') and graphics manipulation using the free application The Gimp. The D*I*Y planner uses the free font named Blue Highway.

For those who are curious about such things, the file format used is 8-bit PNG, and should work well with almost any modern bitmap graphic application.
