Tips for Printing the Candy Cane Templates

  • Be sure that you don’t print from the image files that are on this post. You should first click the images or each link to access the pdf printable file. 
  • Printing from the pdf printable file will give you the best print quality. The lines will be nice and sharp and not blurry like the jpg files. 
  • These designs were made to be printed on a standard 8.5” x 11” size paper. 
  • You might want to consider getting a decent quality printer paper as this will make for better coloring or printing. 
  • Any printer paper will work, but if it’s really cheap and thin copy paper it makes it much harder to color with markers, because the ink will just bleed right through. 
  • For decorating, you can even print these out onto a card stock so that they will be more durable and last longer. 
  • Please remember that these candy cane printables are free for personal use only. They are not for commercial use, and cannot be resold. 

I hope that these printables are just what you are looking for and that you have the best holiday season this year!
