Digital Download: make your own stationary

So, here I am in two snailmail Facebook groups, posting my vintage digital stationary. People seem to like it, but feel like they also want to experience with making their own stationary. It is cheaper, more creative & gives you the freedom to create what you want. Also, don’t forget the biggest benefit: if you run out of stationary, you can print more. And more….

Since making your own stationary is not really self explainatory, I kept feeling guilty over not helping someone properly (instead giving minor instructions).

That is why I created a tutorial for making your own stationary in Adobe Photoshop. It has a download link to where you can download the wondrous program for free. This guide is really handy for every (extreme) beginner in Photoshop. It tells you exactly what to do.

By the end of the guide, you will have a A4 sized document, with lines and stamps. There is also a two-page Questions & Answers section in there. Oh, and last but not least: a A4 sized PSD file with lines already on them (in case you don’t understand the tutorial).

    Wow,t his is great, thank you so much! I may or may not have been struggling with this for quite a while, so this is actually very helpful!
    I most certainly did not spend a ridiculous amount of time looking for photoshop brushes and such last night. Nope ;)

    Hi Robine! I found your site via the comment you left on mine; thank you!

    I was pleasantly surprised to find this guide. I am graphics challenged, but think this tutorial will help me a great deal. I have always used Microsoft Word for creating stationery in the past because I am intimidated by Photoshop. I’m going to give it a try soon though. Thank you for sharing!
