Yes! We’ve started releasing new patterns in both printed and PDF format starting July 2014. We're also working on creating PDF versions of all existing patterns, so you'll be able to choose your preferred format.
PDF patterns are instantly downloadable as soon as you complete the checkout process. The pattern is divided into multiple files for the pattern pieces, instructions, cutting layouts, envelope information, so you only print what you need. The pattern is printable on Letter or A4 format paper. The pattern pieces will need to be assembled in tiles, a guide is provided on how to assemble the pattern and which pieces to print for each view.
Instantly! As soon as you complete checkout, you’ll get a link to download the pattern. A link will also be emailed to you in your order confirmation, and the pattern will always be there in your account, under Completed Orders.
The pattern is printable on Letter or A4 format paper. The pattern pieces will need to be assembled in tiles, a guide is provided on how to assemble the pattern and which pieces to print for each view.
The great part about our PDF patterns is the helpful guide indicating which pieces you need for each view. Only print the pages you need, for the view you plan to make. Saves paper, ink & time, and it’s kinder to the planet!
When you print, make sure you have the printer settings set to ‘Actual Size’ and not ‘fit to page.’ There is a Test Square provided on page one to check that the dimensions are correct. You may want to print page 1 only to ensure it’s printing at the right scale, before printing the entire pattern!
All patterns also include a 36" wide format file options to print at a copy shop. All patterns include both print-at-home tiled pattern pieces as well as the wide-format option. We offer no guarantee that all copy shops worldwide will be able to print the pattern, but we've included it as an option by request.
Follow the included guide to assembling the pattern. There are circles to match on each piece, simply cut off the border and match the circles to assemble the pattern pieces.
Your PDF patterns will be saved forever in your account under ‘Completed Orders.’
As many times as you want! Your PDF file will be stored in your account forever and you can download and print it as many times as you need to.
There are now taxes on digital products only to customers in the European Union. A new law went into effect January 1, 2015 that requires sellers of digital products worldwide to collect taxes on sales to the EU. This law uses the purchaser's country to calculate the rate of tax, rather than the seller's country. We use the VAT rate in the country you purchase from to calculate the sales tax on your order. For more information here is the official European Union documentation, with FAQ answers here. As a Canadian company, we have no control over this decision and are required to comply with the EU regulations in order to keep selling to EU customers.
Orders for physical products shipping to the EU are not taxed at this time.
All PDF patterns are final sale. No refunds will be processed on downloadable products. Please do not share or distribute our PDF patterns.
We accept credit cards including Visa, Mastercard and American Express, as well as Paypal. All prices are listed in Canadian dollars.
