How to shopShopping at SelfPrint Music consists of two main parts: ordering the music and (after paying) downloading it.
Searching for music pieces
Ordering the music is elicited by selecting the link "". This will lead you to the search form where you can enter the criteria for finding the desired pieces.
Here we would like to stress the possibility of finding pieces according to their arrangement, which can be done either approximately (e.g. solo, duo, vocal etc.) or by their exact arrangement (including the number of instruments).
For example when you are looking for a piano piece with a non-specified number of other instruments, in the section "arrangement - fine selection" you will select the option "includes at least" and in the column "Instrument/Unit" you will select "Piano".
When you are looking for a piece for flute with piano accompaniment, in the section "arrangement - fine selection" you will select the option "includes exactly", in the column "Instrument" you will select "Piano" and in the second line "Flute" (the order of the lines does not matter).
If you want to specify more instruments (e.g. two violins), you can enter their number in the column "Number" next to the respective instrument.
You can also specify choir pieces more accurately - e.g. when you are looking for a mixed choir of 6 voices, in the section "arrangement - fine selection" you will select the option "includes at least" and in the column "Instrument/unit" you will select "Choir - female voice" and "Choir - male voice". You can search for the exact arrangement in the same way (e.g. 2 female voices and 2 male voices etc.).
Selecting the musicAfter submitting the search form a list of pieces corresponding with your search criteria will appear.
Clicking on the name of the piece will show details about this piece. Besides other information you will find a thumbnail, a sound sample and a list of available music here (e.g. score, part for separate instruments).
By clicking on the cart symbol on this list, the respective music will be added to your cart. If there is more music on the list, you can add more music from this list into your cart individually. (For music offered for free, you will find a direct download link in place of the shopping cart symbol.)
Then you can return to the list of results or search for other pieces and add other music to your cart in the same way.
Ordering the musicAfter you have added music to your cart, you can view its content by clicking on the respective symbol or link. You can delete individual music from your cart by clicking on the symbol of the recycle bin.
If you are happy with the content of your cart, you can proceed to the checkout by clicking on the given link. There you will again see the list of music you are about to buy. You can confirm this selection if you agree with the conditions of use. Non-registered users must enter their e-mail address to which the access code to their order will be sent after confirmation.
The confirmation gives rise to an irremissible order; the indicated total price of the order must be paid within 15 days by a bank transfer to the given bank account (that depends on the currency in which you want to pay for the music), after this time period the order expires. It is necessary to enter the number of the order on the payment order so that we can identify your payment!

Structure of the files
You will receive the files in the form of a ZIP archive in which you will find the delivery note and the ordered music in PDF format. The music is ordered into the files so that each file corresponds to one piece. The names of the PDF files correspond to their content (generally scores and parts).
Music from SelfPrint Music can be bought even by non-registered users. Nevertheless registering offers some advantages:
- You will only need one password chosen by yourself to have access to your orders.
