    When I download this resource it has text overlaying and I get double words of phrases on each page. Not sure if it is me or not, I have never had any trouble with your word walls in the past.

    Hi, I would like to download this but with no words (blank). I have clicked customise which takes me to the studio and the document then changes to ‘3 words per page’ rather than 12. I have looked to see if I can create this myself through the studio but I can’t find this background available. Thanks

      Hi Miss Bradbury,
      Thank you for your comment.
      This resource is word wall cards, so it is actually 3 per page. The 12 to a page that you see is just for the thumb nail. I can see how that would be misleading. I will change the thumbnail to show the resource as 3 to a page.
      Kind regards
