What Is A Printable Binder Kit by Tumbleweed Press

If you’ve been wondering what exactly is a printable binder kit, and what can I do with it, let me explain what they are and why you’ll love them as much as I do! Let me guide you through all the details so you can start to plan your next binder to get organized and help make your life a little easier. Wouldn’t that be nice!

What Is A Printable?

A printable is a PDF file, and each binder kit includes multiple PDF files. All our printables are an instant download, so as soon as you purchase you will get a link to download the files. This means no waiting for anything to ship, you can get started straight away. Simply download to your computer and you can get started in minutes.

Printables can simply be printed out and you can handwrite in your details, however all our printable kits are editable PDF files so that you can type in your own details.

To use the editable features of the PDF files, you will need access to a computer (not a tablet or mobile device). To add your own text (and images if applicable) to the pages you will need to have Adobe Reader, which is free software.

What Is A Printable Binder Kit?

A Printable Binder Kit is a collection of printables to help you organize a particular area of your life or home into a binder or alike. You can choose whether you use the pages loosely, assemble them into a binder (my recommendation) or get them bound another way, like spiral binding.

Our Recipe Binder Kits are a collection of printables to help you create a binder collection of all your family recipes, so they’re all together in one place. No more looking through cookbooks, magazines, random tear outs, photocopies and scribbled notes.

A Holiday Binder Kit is a collection of printables to help you organize and plan for the holidays. All your family traditions, holiday recipes, gift ideas and shopping lists to make the holiday season as stress free as possible. No need to start from scratch every year, simply grab your binder and plan ahead with everything you need at your fingertips.

Each printable binder kit includes multiple PDF files, like our Recipe Binder Kit that includes over 140 pages. To make this as easy as possible for you to use, the pages are organized in a folder with sub-folders to make locating any printable you want as quick as possible.

How Editable Printables Save You Time

The great thing about editable PDF files is that you can add in your own text details and also add photos to a printable (if applicable). The advantage of this is that you will have a digital copy of the files forever for future reference.

If you spill something on or damage a printable (like a recipe page) you can easily print another copy. It’s not ruined like a cookbook.

For that friend who loves your cookies and asks for the recipe, you can quickly print her a copy. How professional does that look!

Create a list you’ll use repetitively, like a grocery list or a packing list of everything you take on holiday. If later you want to add some more items, simply open the file, add them and print it. The printables are so easy to update, again and again, as you personalize and refine your life.

Want to make a packing list for a road trip from your plane travel list? Simply take your plane list and ‘Save As’ to create another list. No need to reinvent the wheel, a quick change to the relevant details and you’ll always have it ready to go.

Why Printable Binder Kits Are Great Value

Rather than piecing together a bunch of random lists or word documents you’ve created, simply add your details to professionally designed practical templates that gives a beautifully consistent look across your whole binder. As a graphic designer, I understand that that you want a beautiful design you’re proud to display in your home, so I‘ve done the hard work for you. I’ve spent hours staring at a computer screen to make sure everything lines up, the layout is cohesive and taken hours to select just the right fonts and colors to suit the design. A printable kit will be a fraction of the cost of hiring a designer to create you custom printables.

Avoid staring at a blank page or starting from scratch. All the printables included have been carefully considered or requested by customers who wanted get better organized and give themselves a head start.

If you buy individual printables, you will pay a more per printable page that you will with a printable kit. While you may not use every page included with a kit, that’s ok, it may also include options you may not know you need yet. You can always get in touch if you think a printable is missing and needs to be added. All feedback is welcomed and many customer suggestions have been added to a kit when I’ve updated it.

The Big Picture

Once you have the kit, it will take some time to add your details into the printable and to create your finished binder. However, you’ll only have to do this once and then you’ll have it forever. A small effort upfront will pay big rewards in saved time and stress down the track. How good will it feel to know all your recipes for example, are in your binder. All the holiday plans, lists and ideas are in your binder.

Having organized binders with printable pages I can re-use again and again has made my life so much easier and I hope that I’ve got you thinking how they can help you too.
