Digital Pattern Info
The following are some guidelines to help you through the process of working with our digital PAH / Print At Home or A0 / Copy Shop downloadable patterns.
Why Purchase a Digital Pattern?
The Upside: Digital patterns are instant gratification, the option to reprint as often as you like, and no shipping fees.
The Downside: The PAH versions take time and ink to print and assemble, they are more difficult to store, and need to be traced if you are a fan of tissue fitting. The A0 version means an extra step to have them printed.
We are working on getting the entire Pamela's Patterns catalog available in both PAH and A0 formats. Some titles may still only be available in select formats.
PAH / Print At Home
The patterns can be downloaded from your computer or mobile device equipped to handle PDF files.
A0 / Copy Shop
You can send the A0/Copy Shop file to any printer capable of printing on 36" wide - or A0 - paper. Locally, check out the companies that print large format such as office supply companies, blueprint, architectural, reprographic printing, etc. These can be a bit more expensive than ordering the paper version. There are also many print companies online that offer this service. Many have dedicated services for printing sewing patterns. Since this info ever-changing, we recommend searching online for "copy shop printing for sewing patterns".
Digital patterns include printing instructions and sewing instructions that are the same as our paper patterns.
After purchasing, you will see a link on your receipt to download the pattern. This link will also be emailed to you.
Due to the nature of digital pattern downloads, all sales are final, and we cannot accept returns.
PDF Printing and Assembly
Each digital pattern comes with instructions on printer settings, testing print size, and assembly. To see an example of this process, click here. We recommend using a desktop / laptop to print your pattern. If you are using a mobile device to download your PAH / Print At Home pattern, it can be difficult to find the location of the pattern to print it. Look for a File Manager or Downloads app on your device to locate the PDF file.
