Can I use them on a Mac?
Can I use them on a Tablet?
We have found that tablets are not the easiest to use when trying to edit content like this. If you feel comfortable with your tablet and have an appropriate image editing app you are welcome to use them on a tablet however we do not recommend it.
Are the kits editable?
The kits are a selection of images sized and designed for your use. Every PTA is different and uses a wide variety of computers and software so this is the only way to make sure everything displays properly. You can add anything over the top of the images that you like, so you can add extra text items such as addresses etc to suit your events.
Do I need special software?
No. You can use a wide variety of software as the kits are images that can be inserted into word processors such as Microsoft Word or image editors such as the free online edior pixlr.
Why have I only got one file when I download?
We compress all the kit files into a zip file to make them quicker and easier to download.
How to zip or unzip a file
If you have a zip file and you want Windows XP to unzip it, right-click the file and select ’Extract All’. This should bring up the ’Compressed (zipped) Folders Extraction Wizard’. To extract the file or files, click ‘Next’ and select a directory or folder where the wizard can send the files.
If you want Windows XP to zip a file or a folder, right-click it and choose a ‘Compress’ item. Mac OS X works in much the same way, calling it ‘Archive’ instead of ‘Compress’.
Alternatively, you can right-click inside Windows Explorer, select ‘New’, create a zip file, and give it a suitable name. Next, use your mouse to select the files or folders you want to compress, hold down the left mouse-button, drag the files to your zip file and drop them on top of it. Repeat this as many times as you like - Windows will add the files to your zip file.
You can also use ’drag-and-drop’ to extract files from a compressed folder by dragging them to a different folder or to your desktop. Windows will uncompress them automatically.
Where do I get the fonts?
All of the fonts we use are available online. The details are given on the kit details and the links are in the forum.
Why don't you include the fonts?
The fonts we use in the samples are subject to copyright and licensing laws. We are not allowed to distribute them. We do supply the link where you can download them for your own use and we do limit the designs to fonts freely availble.
Who can use this?
All members of the organisation that joined can access the site and use the kits for the organisations events. We suggest that you share the username and login for the site with your committee so that can all access the kits. You can also store them on a shared drive such as dropbox.
