How to Create and Save your Chart as a PDF file
PDF documents in their simplest form are just images of documents that may be read by a universal reader such as Adobe Reader. If you click on one of the links below where we tell you how to create a PDF you may notice that our instruction sheets are sent to your browser in the PDF format.

Converting a family tree diagram into a PDF document is relatively straight forward and it enables you to give us a file that will look just the same when it is printed as it does on your screen. The only limitation for a PDF document is its length cannot exceed 3.5 metres (about 12 feet).

Important - Before you upload your chart or send it to us please make sure that it is a single page PDF. Scroll down for instructions if you require help creating a PDF.

If you already have your chart designed and saved as a PDF then there are three ways that you can get a price for printing:

1) Just upload your PDF to our Chart Generator and our system will determine the dimensions and suggest to you a suitable print size along with prices for printing on 90gram light duty paper, 120 gram medium wieght paper or 170 gram heavy weight paper or canvas.
