I designed this image to evoke the look of bold striped stationery that is popular now, but the lines actually represent the grand staff. I personalize each student's assignment book or binder cover by editing the image with text in a snazzy font to show the student's name as well as the name of my piano studio and the current school year. YOU WILL NEED TO HAVE A PROGRAM THAT ALLOWS YOU TO ADD TEXT TO IMAGES FOR THIS TO WORK. Because the file is .jpg (NOT .pdf), it will be up to you to be able to add text within your preferred photo-editing software. I use a program called Picasa to edit mine. Picasa is a free photo editing program by Google, so you should be able to download it easily. The specific fonts I have used in the example image are: Pacifica (for the name of my studio and the year) and AppleMyungia (for the student's name above and below the middle C line). The actual size of the image is smaller than letter size; however, it prints out very clearly as an 8.5 by 11 inch image when you use US letter-sized borderless printing. I print mine on letter-sized photo paper for the crispest result. I also back mine with bright yellow cardstock as a border before inserting into a clear-view 3-ring binder cover. (Example picture with binder shown).
