Common Questions About Printable Valentine Bookmarks:

Can I Resize the Bookmarks?

Unfortunately, the bookmarks are designed for standard printing sizes. Attempting to resize them may compromise the quality of the design. Stick to the recommended dimensions for optimal results, but you are free to change up the sizes using the settings on your printer if you would like to.

Best Paper for Printing:

For the best results, use high-quality cardstock or heavy paper when printing the bookmarks. This ensures durability and a professional look. Regular paper can be used, but the lifetime of the coloring Valentine bookmarks will be limited.

Can I color the bookmarks and then gift them?

The great thing about these fun bookmarks, is that they can be gifted to color or you can color and then gift them for a candy-free route for Valentine’s gifts.
