About Tim van de Vall

Tim van de Vall has been creating printables for kids since 2012. Through Tim’s Printables, Tim is able to combine his love of illustration with his passion for learning. 

Tim began drawing at a very young age. He graduated from the Georgia Institute of Technology with a Bachelor’s Degree in Computational Media in 2010. After college, he worked as an illustrator for an ad agency. In 2012 he quit his job and started his own online business and blog, which has developed into Tim’s Printables.

Tim is also the creator and cartoonist for the family-friendly comic strip, Ergo. The characters from Ergo regularly appear in Tim’s Printables.

“My goal is to spark creativity in kids. I want to provide them with quality resources they can use in order to discover, create, and play.” 

This Ergo comic strip summarizes the concepts that inspire Tim to draw.

  4. Hello.
    My name is nari. I am a librarian teacher at Korea Elementary School. I used your board game materials for library classes(Board Game Template #3). Our children loved it very much. I would like to use your board game template as one of the reading materials for other teachers. I want to know if it is against copyright.

  5. Hi, I’m a mom of a preschooler and my child was given your “The Letter F” sheet as a homework. I’m contacting you because I Would like to know (if that OK) what is the animal that is in the second column on first row. Please.. Is it a Lion? Panther?

    I am a Peace Corps Volunteer in Ukraine. I am an English teacher at a small school in a small town. We are currently compiling our summer camp lesson plans into a booklet to be published by our region’s Department of Education. The goal of the publication is to help other teachers utilize online resources and integrate other subjects into their English lessons. May I include some of your printable in the publication? As far as I know, the booklet will be given to teachers free of charge and I would, of course, acknowledge your copyright and include a link to your website with each activity. 🙂

    Thank you!


      1. Perfect! Thank you for all these wonderful resources and for letting me include a few in our booklet!

  8. Hi Tim!
    Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful games and comics with us. Would it be alright if I used your “Spot the Difference” picture as an activity for a non-profit Fall Festival at my church, of course with copyright acknowledged?

  9. Hi Tim,
    It’s a small world! I’m a native-born Idahoan who is now a children’s librarian in Michigan. Just like Mackie, I too would like to get permission to use your amazing printables at my public library. All use would be for educational purposes, non-profit, and copyright acknowledged. May I do so?

  10. Hi Tim!

    My name is Mackie and I am a Children’s Librarian in Boise, ID. I’m doing a Fall Reading Program starting in September. I came across your treasure hunt board game printable and I would love to use it as my game board for the program. I just wanted to make sure that was okay with you.
