Hello Lucy!
Are you talking about exporting all the PNGs (signs) only as graphics  
files? Or are you talking about using SignPuddle itself (the whole  
program) off line?

Two different things...;-)

1. I just went into the old SignPuddle 1.0, and exported the signs  
from the old database into a folder of pngs. I will send you that  
folder, attached to a private email message.

2. In the new database, SignPuddle 1.5
The EXPORT COMMAND right now, only exports the signs into SignBank.  
SignBank is a free program online, if you can download a large file.  
I can create a Polish SignBank for you. Then I could give you  a link  
for downloading SignBank. SignBank can be used offline, on your hard  
drive. It is another program and there may be a little bit for you to  
learn, but from SignBank you can also copy and paste signs into other  

3. Using SignPuddle 1.5 Offline
You could purchase a PocketPuddle in about a month or so...We are  
still perfecting it. But it is a way to use SignPuddle offline, on  
your own personal PC. Here is information:
