What Are eArticles?

eArticles are in-depth stamp-related technique articles that can be read online. They include how-to info, how-to tutorials and stamp art using the techniques. When you download them and save them to your own computer, you can also read them offline, whenever you like. They can be searched and the pdf versions can be printed. Click on links inside the eArticles to learn even more elsewhere on the web! There is no cost to read any of these eArticles.

Available eArticle Formats:

1) pdf files specially formatted to view comfortably on a landscape oriented computer screen (like a desk top computer, a laptop or a color tablet turned to a  landscape orientation). Like all pdf files, they are fixed format. While there are many alternative readers that will read pdf files, in order to successfully open and read these articles, because this is a complex file with a lot of photos, I strongly recommend that you use the most current version of Adobe Acrobat Reader. This free utility is available here: Adobe Reader (Links in the article and pictures that rotate may not work when using some alternate readers. Make sure you use Adobe Acrobat when viewing them in your browser!)

2) ePub files designed for single column vertical reading on a 7″ or larger tablet or an eReader that can read ePub files (like iPads or Android tablets).  Adjusting text size using ePub reader software allows text and pictures to re-flow (so less horizontal scrolling) although the page design is more simplified. Note: To read an independent ePub on some tablets, you may need to get it to the personal documents folder on your eReader.

3) Mobi files designed for single column vertical reading on a color Kindle (like Kindle Fire.) You may also be able to read these on some black and white Kindles although you’ll miss out on all the color photos! Adjusting text size using Kindle reader software allows text and pictures to reflow (so less horizontal scrolling) although the page design is more simplified. To read an independent mobi file on a Kindle, you need to get it to the personal documents folder on your Kindle.

Printing eArticles

The pdf version of these eArticles is formatted to be 5 1/2″ tall by 8 1/2″ wide when printed. Choose landscape mode when you print to get the full size. Choose scale-to-paper-size print option to make it even larger (nice if your eyes demand a larger print size!)
