It was a free one, but I never found it on my computer. I would like to try again but I need to know if you need a special computer program to use them. If not, do you have any tips on getting it to work for me and do you know a site that offers at least one free to see if it works. I hope this makes some sense as I am pretty uninformed about these and probably don't even know the right questions to ask. Anyway thanks for any advice you have.

I use Digis frequently. They are super easy to use and you can size them ever which way you want.

I don't use a specific program, although you certainly can. I use simpe, run-o-the-mill MS WORD. I import the image and then size it to what I want.
I have an HP Printer and I always print the image in Marker Safe Paper.

I use X-Press It paper since I color with Copics and other Alcohol based Markers. This is important if you are blending the colors on the image. I don't recommend using watercolors or water based markers since I've have experienced some smearing of ink when blending the colors.

If you plan on just coloring and not blending, you can pretty much print on any type of paper.

This page has free Digis ---> http://freedigitalstamps.blogspot.com/

This page explains Digis --> http://rubberstamping.ab...amps/a/DigitalStamps.htm

I am in no way an expert, but I hope I helped a bit.

I have always had problems with coloring Digi Stamps using my Copics, always smears. I used a Ink Jet Printer, X-Press and several other Copic recommended paper and always smeared. I finally tried using a Laser printer and never had a problem with smearing.

I am happy you have not had any problems, your lucky.
