The Write Foundation Digital Downloads
You must contact email@example.com to get your code for a digital order and to help you with questions you may have about the following information.
Before you contact for your digital order code, read the following information carefully to help you make your decision whether or not to order digital instead of printed and shipped.
Digital is formatted to save on international shipping costs and for multi-purchase classroom use and b/c of multiple pages can be challenging to print on a home printer and expensive to print stateside at a professional printer.
Home and Professional Printing:
1. You should calculate how much you will need for printing at home or at Office Depot or UPS. Guide to Printing Page Counts.
2. Using 3-hole punched paper makes it easier for storing worksheets and lessons in a 3-ring binder.
3. Home Printing: Lessons do not print individually for either the teacher instruction manuals or the student worksheets.
- Each set of Student Worksheets Lessons 1 - 30 must be printed all at one printing and each Teacher Instruction Manual Lessons 1 - 30 must be printed all at one printing.
- If there is a break or interruption of any kind, the lessons will quit printing and will NOT resume unless reactivated by TWF after you request special permission from TWF.
- The worksheets and the teacher instruction manual will start printing from the beginning again when reactivated.
- Worksheet lessons will be printed one-sided only for each set of worksheets.
- Teacher Instruction Manuals are printed on both sides.
4. Professional Printing: For orders printed at an authorized printing center, please check with your chosen local printing location for their pricing per printed side. At this time, September 2022, Office Depot charges 18 cents per side and UPS charges 20 cents per side.

To print this file at home:
- You need a Windows computer to choose the print at home option.
- Make sure your printer is in good working order and you have plenty of paper and ink on hand.
- All the lessons print at one time continually. If there is a break or interruption of any kind, the lessons will quit printing and will NOT resume unless reactivated by TWF after you request special permission from TWF. The worksheets will start printing from the beginning again when reactivated.

Once the test print is completed successfully, choose "Print" at the bottom of the screen.
Using a Mac? The TWF Digital Downloads program runs on Windows Only. To use a Mac computer for downloads, you must have a dual boot Windows program, such as Parallels Desktop, that allows you to run your Mac as a Windows computer. This will allow you to use our Digital Downloads option for your curriculum purchase. If desired, you can download a free trial of Parallels: https://www.parallels.com/products/desktop/trial/.
Please consider asking for special permission from TWF to switch to printed and shipped if you are stateside and have questions or problems regarding printing your order. This will mean extra work for you and will mean a little more expense to make the switch for you.
