Is your store and customer information secure?
Register - You do not have to register an account, but you will find checkout faster, and you can look up past purchases in your Account History. back to top
Password - You may not have a registered account; you might have ordered as a guest. If this is the case, sign up for an account. If you're sure your email address is correct, click the link "Forgot your password?" and you'll be sent an email to help you log into your account. It's also possible you purchased from our old store, which is no longer functioning. In that case, email us, and we'll create an account for you and update our new store with your old orders. back to top
Payments - We accept the following online payments - Visa, MasterCard, Amex, Discover, Diner's Club, Shop Pay, Google Pay, Apple Pay, Bancontact, and iDeal. back to top
Payment Currency - You can now purchase from our store in your local currency. No calculating currency conversions, losing money on poor currency exchange rates, or incurring additional currency exchange fees on your credit card or bank account. Select the currency you wish to purchase in, and all prices will reflect that currency. back to top
Declined payment - There are many reasons why credit cards can be declined. Our store does not approve or decline credit card transactions; that is done by your card issuer (bank or credit card company). Please get in touch with them if you do not know the reason for the decline. Call the number on the back of your card to inquire. Common reasons include:
- Being over your card limit.
- Using an expired card.
- Using the wrong billing address.
- Using the wrong CVV (3-digit number on the back of the card)
- Using a card that has been flagged for fraudulent activity. back to top
Purchase Orders - Unfortunately, we do not accept Purchase Orders. All orders must be paid online with one of our many payment options. back to top
Shop Pay - To pay for an order using Shop Pay Installments (4 interest-free payments, or choose a monthly payment plan), the following eligibility criteria apply:
- You must have a United States billing address and be signed up for Shop Pay.
- Your order needs to be 50 USD or more.
- For orders split into four bi-weekly payments, you need to pay with a supported credit or debit card.
- For orders paid for in monthly installment payments, you must pay with a supported debit card.
Limitations of Shop Pay
The following limitations apply to Shop Pay Installments. If either of the below limitations apply to your order, then you can't use Shop Pay Installments to pay for that order:
- You can't pay for an order that includes gift cards.
- You can't pay for a Shop Pay Installments order using a Capital One card, prepaid debit card, or prepaid credit card.
Selling online - We have been selling printable Montessori materials online since 2004. back to top
Copyright - Our files are for use in 1 classroom only. You are prohibited from sharing, distributing, or selling our digital files (free or paid) in digital or hard copy. You may not post the files to a website or any platform that shares or sells digital files. You may not alter or edit the files. By purchasing our files or downloading free files, you agree to these terms. Thank you for respecting our copyright. back to top
Download Files - Our system will create download links on the final checkout page after your checkout is complete. Wait to close the window until the links have completely loaded. You will also be emailed a set of download links - please check your spam folder. Bundles are downloaded as "zip files". You will need to unzip them to access the individual files. Right-click your mouse and select "Extract All", then select a folder to save them to. back to top
Lost files - You can use the email we sent you with the download links - they are still valid. If you no longer have that email, you can sign into your account (if you registered an account) and find the order with the files you need from your Order History. Note the Order # and email us. We will send you another set of download links to access the files. back to top
No printed materials - We only sell digital files. You will not receive any printed materials in the mail. back to top
Creator - An AMI-certified Montessori teacher has created our materials. She was trained by Renilde Montessori (Maria Montessori's granddaughter) and has over 30 years of Montessori experience. back to top
Print quality - To have beautiful printables, you need a good printer. If your printer does not create beautiful, vibrant prints, try completing a nozzle check and cleaning the print heads (look up your printer manual online for instructions). Consider having a business supply store (such as Staples) print the files. Business supply stores usually charge per printed page, regardless of how much ink is required, so they are usually a great option. If the store will not print the files due to copyright issues, please contact us, and we will provide you with a print release form. back to top
Printing paper - We recommend using cardstock. It will help extend the life of the materials. Different thicknesses are available; ensure your printer can accommodate the thickness (check your printer specifications online). back to top
Laminating - We suggest laminating your printables to make them last. If many children use the materials, then a 5mil laminate is best. You can print, trim, and then laminate, or if you have a good-sealing laminator, you can print, laminate, and then trim. Try a page and see what works best with your laminator. back to top
Shipping - All of our products are digital files you can immediately download; therefore, there are no shipping charges. You will not receive any printed materials by mail. back to top
Bundles & Collections - We offer many Bundles and two different Collections. The Bundles offer 15% to 25% savings, and the Collections offer massive savings (see product listings). Bundles are available for immediate download; Collections are not an immediate download. We must manually create the download link for Collections and send it to you. During regular business hours (EST), this will only take a few hours at most. You will have seven days to access the Collection files and complete the download. We recommend making a backup copy (a USB, CD ROM, or cloud service). back to top
