Hi all,
I LOVE THESE! Can’t wait to put them up in my music classroom!

A few things:
1. Can you make some horizontal & vertical ones with musical symbols? (crochet, minim, semibreve, pair of quavers, treble clef, bass clef, 4/4 time – just to name a few)

2. I’d also love it if these ones were customisable – I have quite a few words I’d like to add to it….

Thanks 😀

Hello I am unable to print this document. Has anyone else had a problem? Cheers

Hi Louise,

The first suggestion would be to ensure you have the latest version of Adobe Reader installed.


Once you have done this, please try printing again.

If the issue persists, perhaps you could try turning on and off the “print pdf as image” setting.


I hope this information helps. If you have any further questions, please let me know. I’m happy to help!

Kind regards,
