How Maitri Digital Works

Our digital files can be viewed and printed using secure software (the LockLizard PDF viewer). Here’s what happens when you purchase one or more of our digital files:

  1. Immediately receive an email with a link to download the secure PDF file (a .PDC document).
  2. Within one business day, receive an email with links to (1) install the software required to use the PDC file and (2) activate your license.
  3. Install the software, activate your license, and view/print your PDC file.

We’ve tested this on our devices so we know from personal experience that the software is easy and quick to install and the viewer works just like you’d expect a PDF viewer to work. For more information, you can watch this video on how to open a PDC file.

Note: You can view all files on your iOS or Android device but you can not print from those devices. Printing is available from Mac and Windows PCs.

Expiration

Your license to view our Teacher Education Albums never expires. Your license to use all of our other Digital Files expires once you have used up your print allotment:

  • Three prints are allowed for teacher education albums
  • 10 prints are allowed for all other materials

Two Devices

You can activate your license on up to two Mac, Windows, iOS, or Android devices (e.g., your laptop and phone). You can also download your files twice (once for each device). Once the software is installed and your files are downloaded, you can view and print the PDC files offline.

(Note: You can view but not print from your iOS or Android device.)

If you retire one of your devices, contact us.

Repeat Purchases

If you are purchasing your second or third digital product, you may need to revalidate your license before you can use your new file. Find your Accessing Our Documents email and validate your license again.

Personal Use

Your purchase gives you license to view and print your PDC file for your personal use. Because printers don’t always print as expected, you can print the file up to three times. You do not have license to copy, sell, or in anyway distribute/share the printed product or the file itself.

Important Note About Printing

Note that printing a single page or multiple copies of a single page counts toward the total print count (e.g., printing only page 4 three times will use up your entire print allotment). Be mindful to choose the exact pages you would like to print and only print one copy at a time, otherwise you may use up your prints inadvertently. If you need to print more than three times, just purchase the product again.

Also, you can view all files on your iOS or Android device but you can not print from those devices. Printing is available from Mac and Windows PCs.

Printing Support

If you encounter challenges printing, start by reinstalling the Viewer to make sure it’s running correctly. For Macs, follow the steps in this link exactly as they are laid out: https://kb.locklizard.com/knowledge-base/faq-mac-viewer-will-not-install-properly-or-run-correctly-once-installed/.

If the problem persists, there may be a memory problem. Here's how you might overcome that:

  • Close down any other applications that are running apart from Safeguard Viewer;
  • Print using a PCL driver for your printer and NOT a postscript one;
  • Use a specific printer driver and NOT a generic one (e.g. don’t use an HP universal print driver – instead install the specific one for your printer’s model number).
  • Print sections of a document at a time rather than the whole document at once as this will save on memory resources (contact us to increase the number of times you are allowed to print).
