Each PDF product comes with one of the following licenses:
Using your PDFs
We recommend PDF products primarily for digital use and for international customers for whom the cost of shipping is much greater. Those with access to highly economical printing may also save money by purchasing PDF workbooks and printing their own, at least with the black and white workbooks for Essentials and Rhythm of Handwriting.
Customers who purchase the PDF version to save money by printing it themselves are often shocked when they realize how much it costs to print these books. Printing on home printers or a print shop will often cost far more than the price of the printed books, so we recommend examining your printing cost carefully before choosing this option.
If you are paying more than $0.10/page for color or $.05/page for black and white, your printing cost for a single copy will probably be higher than the cost of the printed book. Each Essentials Teacher's Guide is over 300 pages long, and the workbooks are up to 200 pages. Foundations books are full color and over 200 pages each.
Some customers happily use an entire curriculum digitally on an iPad, with no printed books. A number of handy apps are available for the iPad which allow students to "write" on the workbook pages electronically. Users have successfully used apps such as GoodReader, Adobe Reader, and others for this. Others customers use the teacher's manual digitally and buy printed workbooks, or split their workbook use between digital and paper, printing pages only as needed.
Those who are comfortable using books in a digital format will often find PDF products a significant cost savings, as well as a convenience.

Digital Product Formats
You as the purchaser are responsible for making sure you are appropriately equipped with what you need to download, save, and use the particular format of the product you purchase. See more format information below.
PDF - Portable Document Format (PDF) is one of the most common ways of distributing formatted documents, and readers are available on almost every platform. PDF files can be read on devices such as iPad, Android, and Kindle Fire. For use on a computer, there are a variety of PDF reading applications available, such as the free Adobe Reader. We do not recommend our PDF-version books for use on smaller devices or older Kindle devices, as the level of detail may be difficult or impossible to read on lower resolution devices.
Some of our PDF-format books come with two file options, one designed for reading electronically with a computer or tablet and the other for printing.
ZIP - When a product includes multiple PDFs, the individual files are grouped into a single ZIP file for you to download. Once you download the file, you can open the ZIP folder on your computer to access the individual PDFs.
If you plan to use your PDFs on a mobile device, you may need to download the file to your computer first and then transfer individual PDFs to your device, or use a ZIP file management app.
MP3 - MP3 is an audio format for digital audio. It is supported on most devices and computers. Additional apps may be required.
Apps - Our apps are available from iTunes®. Check the iTunes store for the specific app's requirements before purchasing.
