Why do some product have 1 element specified in the sizes?

Because the design consist of several elements, you can decide your own size.

I'm not happy with my purchase, can I get a refund?
Because the window drawing designs are digital and I can't check if you've used it or not, refunds aren't possible. It's a different story for the other products, send a message explaining why you want to return the product and I will try to solve the problem. When I can’t, you can of course return the product and you will get a refund. Shipping not included.

I can't open my window, can I still use the window drawing designs?
Yes! Check out a explanation how over here.

Can I draw on milk glass or over a semi-translucent decal?
Yes! The prints are black lines, so they will be able to see them and chalk markers are water based, so they won't damage the surface.

I accidentaly printed the wrong version, it should be (not) mirrored. Do I have to reprint?
No, just turn the paper around when you put it on the window. I might be a bit less visible, but still enough to trace.

I made a mistake, how can I correct it without ruining the rest?
Take the tip of a cloth, make it wet. Put the cloth on your finger and carefully wipe away your mistake. Dry it before you continue drawing.

The tape left glue residue, how do I remove that?
Put some benzine on a piece of paper towel and wipe over the glue residue until it’s gone.

The letters of the birth announcement window drawing are too big/small, now what?
The design is based on a short name, but if you download the smaller/bigger size, it should fit.

How do I download the window drawings?
You receive an email with links. Click on these and download will automatically start. The filled are wrapped, a ZIP, double-click and your computer will automatically 'unwrap', you'll need the PDF's to print.

Do I need a special printer for the larger sizes?
No, all sizes are distributed over A4 sheets (normal print-paper), a size L could be 2 sheets and a XXL 8. You'll just need to tape them together before you can start tracing.

I can't open the file?!?

Is it possible to get a printed version of the design?

No, the window drawing designs are digital. If you don't have a printer, you can ask a friend to print it for you, or maybe at your work?

How long will the window drawing stay on?
This depends on the marker you’ve used, but as long as doesn't get wet or you touch it, it should stay on.

The chalk marker (drawing) looks stripy, can I do something about that?
No, because you're working with a marker, it'll always show. But! Have a look outside, there you'll see it looks very clean and opaque:

How do I remove the window drawing?
If you draw with a chalk marker, you can easily remove it with some water and a cloth. For example, when you’re planning to do your windows anyways ;) Depending on the size of the drawing, it’s advisable to get a bucket of water. Big drawings won’t erase with just one wipe. Check out a demonstration video over here.

Waterproof marker is waterproof, so you'll need Windex. Spray it generously on the drawing and then wipe it away.

Do you design custom window drawings?
Yes, I can make a custom baby window drawing for you, or if you want something else, that’s possible too! Read more about it over here.

Do you sell chalk markers?
Yes! You can find them over here.

How do I use a chalk marker?

When the marker is new or not used for a while: shake the marker (cap on!), then pump on a piece of scrap paper until you see the ink flow into the nib. Repeat this every now and again when you're drawing to get smooth lines.

My chalk marker dried out, what can I do?
Rinse out the tip with warm water. Then you dry it thoroughly (not completely dry, but not to wet or else your drawing will be watery). Next you do the same as when you first use the pen, shake it and then press in the point until the tip fills with fluid.

The marker works too well, the lines bleed, what can I do?
Wipe off the point of the marker with a tissue and don't shake the marker too often until it works well again.

How do I remove chalk marker?
Really easy with some water and a cloth, check out a demonstration video over here.
