Hi Martin,

Quote from a an old thread:

"Creating a download link in PDF

Instead of "Saving" your work when done, you will "Print" them but not using a regular printer: you will use a converter instead!

Visit www.PDF995.com and download the Free PDF converter .... then install it on your computer: it will install as a "printer option", not as a icon/program on your desktop. So, when you go to "Print" that Word created file, instead of quickly clicking through your Print Dialog, use the drop-down Menu and "Select Printer" as PDF995 .....this will automatically 'print to file' and convert the Word .doc to a .pdf file in whatever folder/directory you specify. This process replaces "Saving" as a PDF file.
*Always Save a copy as a Word document first, however, as that way you have a file you can go back and update and then "re-save/print" as a PDF, overwriting the previous.

Lastly, FTP to your public_html/ directory that new PDF file, and when you offer a link to clients, the file will immediately display as a printable and downloadable ("save a copy") file also! They can print it out on their computer!

A proper link to a PDF file would look like this:

On a different note, the photos on your merchandise page are H U G E (electronically). You must resize.
