In late 2017 we began offering large format prints of our womens Blank Slate Patterns to our U.S. customers. We’ve had some questions about what, exactly, large format prints are, so we made a video to show you.
Large format prints save you time, paper and ink since we print the patterns for you. In addition, you can be confident that the printing has been done correctly. However, since we know many of you like your instructions on your tablet or phone, the instructions aren’t included with our large format prints. This allows us to offer the best of both worlds to you – you get the immediacy of a PDF and the ability to reprint at home if you’d like, but you also get an already assembled full size printed pattern.
This hybrid of PDF instructions and printed pattern also helps us to keep costs lower for you, since we don’t have to pay to store inventory or meet minimums for pattern print runs. Just log in to your account to download your instructions, which you can print if you prefer.
These prints would not be possible if my husband hadn’t volunteered to take on the shipping department. When you receive your print, know that it’s been folded and most likely packed and mailed by him personally, sometimes with help from the kids. They’ve gotten really good at pulling inventory and working the automated stamp machines at the post office.
For international customers, we have found shipping costs to be prohibitive. Luckily, we also offer copy shop or A0 size files with our women’s patterns, so that you can have your full size prints done locally and more cost effectively than we could ship them to you.
