The trading cards can be printed both with the interactive and the mobile app.
The app is a little more difficult--tablets have their own printing features, and there is not a standard. iPads are a little easier, because they can print to any wireless printer. The Android version is trickier--each manufacturer has their own way of handling printing, and you might need an app from the printer you wish to print to. As long as you can print from your tablet, you can print the finished result.
But what if you don't have any way to print something from your tablet? No worries: The mobile app has the ability to email the card as a pdf or to save the card into the tablet's photo album, and from there the card can be moved to a desktop device and printed. We've provided a few ways for students to create their cards.
Thanks for the question. Enjoy the Trading Cards!

I'd like to try this activity, but was wondering if you are able to print out the cards, once they are complete. Look forward to hearing the answer!
