Why purchase Printable Templates?

Many people ask, “Why buy printable versions, when you can buy the real thing?”

  1. Save Money: If you need more recipe cards or meal planning pages, for example, you don’t have to go to a store and buy more filler pages. Instead, you just print copies from the files on your computer.
  2. Customize: You can personalize editable pages to fit your needs and you can pick and choose which of the files you actually need, without having empty, unused content in your Binder or Kit {for example: if you don’t need a category page for Cocktails, just skip printing it!}.
  3. Unique Design: When you shop small from handmade artisans, you can find unique products and designs! Often, these shops can’t manufacture full books, but they can provide you an affordable digital download {aka: printable}, instead.
Which Binder Kit or Menu Planner is your favorite?

Of course, I love the farmhouse style of my buffalo check Recipe Binder {biased}, but I also love the simple kits designed by Paper and Oats and Stationary Concierge. The foodie-style kit by Fearless Confetti is another one of my favorite picks. How gorgeous, right?
