Printing DIYFish Planner Inserts

So...let's say you have decided to get DIYFish inserts.

And let's say you finally decided which set would work for your needs and the size/style of your planner...

But then let's say you get the files downloaded to your computer and you're wondering how the heck to get them from your computer to your planner...LOL

A lot of people have difficulty printing these inserts out simply because they don't look like "normal" calendar pages. There are a lot of different files, parts & pieces to this system--but in the end, it is simply BEAUTIFUL and totally worth the effort.

I created a step-by-step video on how to print the daily pages, which is the bulk of the month. If you can print the dailies, you can print anything!

Keep in mind that your printer may have different settings, so experiment a little. Don't be afraid to try things out! You can do it!

One more tip: In working with several different printers and copy machines over the course of the years, one tip that helps me is to first figure out how your printer loads pages and runs them through. Take a marker and write TOP on one side of the page and then load it face up in your paper tray. If you have a top loading tray like me, draw an arrow, too, so you can see which way it loads in the tray.

Watch the video for step-by-step instructions. Soon I hope to do a video on how to cut and put it all together. I'm a visual learner, so I hope this helps others like me!

Get these inserts here.
