Yes! We even have a guide to do that! Scroll down! Prints may be used with your clients.
I'm a birth worker with my own business and I partner with a group, as well. Can I use my purchased The Educated Birth materials with clients in both spaces?
Materials can be used by one person with one business at a time. If you're using the infographic sheets with another group in addition to your own business, that other group will need to purchase license(s) as well. The only exception to this is membership to our content library. Multiple users may access the content library, depending on the type of subscription that has been purchased. See details via this link.
We're a group of birth workers! A collective, a nonprofit, a birth center or any other organizational structure. What license option applies to us? Are discounts offered for groups?
So glad you're interested in using The Educated Birth materials with your community! To do so, your organization will either purchase multiple licenses for the materials or subscribe to our content library. There is an application process for either option.
If I've purchased materials to include in my training with other birth workers, can they use the products I provided them?
Licenses are not transferrable. When using The Educated Birth materials in trainings with other professionals, it’s most fitting to frame this gift as, "Here are some examples of resources you can invest in for your own reproductive work practice." Any individual using the materials needs to own a license to do so. We'd be happy to create a special offer for your students! If you're interested, em us at firstname.lastname@example.org

If you've purchased an infographic sheet you'll find the following array of file types in your zip file:
If you've purchased an illustration sheet you'll find the following array of file types in your zip file:
PNG files and JPG files are created for basic digital use, particularly when a small file size is needed. These are great if you want to send an example in an email attachment or a Word Document.
PDF files can be used for digital and print use. But obviously the files labeled Printers Marks and Printer Friendly are meant for printing specifically.
EPS files are best for all variations of digital use. Make it smaller or larger and it will keep its quality. Great for if you want to use it in social media or in a powerpoint presentation!

How to Get Your Digital Materials Printed
Want to get your digital infographic sheets printed? No problem! We'll walk you through these simple steps.
Inside your infographic sheet ZIP file, you'll find a folder of PDFs with the following variations inside:
The Base version of your infographic sheet is meant for digital use. If you try to print this version, it's likely to have some sort of quality issue, particularly pertaining to the margins.
The Printers Marks version of your infographic sheet is meant for printing through a service like the ones laid out in the section below, particularly services that will be able to print your project with full bleeds and trim to the edges.
The Printer Friendly Version of your infographic sheet is a color-light version meant for printing at home or in your office. It most easily translates into grayscale printing and doesn't require a bleed.
Printing Items from an Illustration Set
If you’re printing from an Illustration Set, you’ll have to put your print document together before placing a print order. I’d highly recommend using a platform like Canva to do so.
Inside your illustration set ZIP file, you'll find a folder of EPS files.
EPS files are best for all variations of digital and print use. You can place an .EPS file in a Word Document or upload it into a Canva file, etc. You can make it smaller or larger and it will keep its quality.
If for some reason you cannot upload an EPS file, a JPG or PNG file will work fine as well for most standard size print documents.
Print With Who? For How Much?
The cost of printing can really vary depending upon who you're printing through. I suggest pricing out a few options in your area before getting the job done!
Print online through an online service: Online printing services like Vistaprint make it really easy for you to upload your files and get them shipped to you. You can use any of the PDF versions with this option. You may have to pay shipping fees.
At the time that I'm writing this, 25 copies cost $19.00 through Vistaprint.
Print in your area through a service like Office Depot: Places like Office Depot often provide both online and walk-in options for printing. Talk to them about using the Printers Marks version and customizing your project to print to the edge/bleed.
At the time that I'm writing this, 25 copies cost $10.50 through Office Depot.
Print in your area through a small, local print shop: This is my preferred option in terms of cost, quality, and customer service! They usually have online forms, or you can call to place an order. They will definitely prefer the Printers Marks Version.
At the time that I'm writing this, my local print shop has charged about $0.50 per print, depending on the quantity that I have ordered (larger orders lower the rate). At that rate, 25 copies cost about $12.50 through my local print shop.
Please remember as you’re considering what you’d like to print and how you’d like to use your prints that The Educated Birth license options do not allow for re-sale.
