FAQs

Q: What is the difference between an A0 and Copy Shop PDF file.

A0: This format is a standard page size of 36” x 48”, if your pattern is longer than 48” it is split into multiple pages by the designer.

Copy Shop: This format has a standard width, but can be as long as necessary, so your pattern can print as one long page. Our standard page length is 48” anything over this length will require extra payment.

Unsure about submitting a certain type of pattern? Watch our video examples for both A0 and Copy Shop printing.

Q: Do you print A4 or letter size patterns?

A4 and letter size are for a standard printer, our printing services are for wide format printer and must be either A0 or copy shop. If you do not have a standard printer at home a good resources for printing A4 or letter are the Calgary Public Libraries.

Q: Layers?

Some patterns contain layers for each size, this allows you to have specific sizes of your pattern printed.

Not all patterns contain layers, so please know that if you request certain layers and your pattern does not contain layers the pattern will be printed as is.

If you would like to check if you pattern has layers take a look at our video guide - you do not need to select the layers on the PDF file, just type the ones you would like printed in the box above and we will take care of the rest!

Q: How are my patterns delivered? 

Patterns for local pick up are all rolled together. All local delivery and shipped patterns are sent folded.

Q: Can you print in colour?

Our standard printing is in Black and White. If you would like your pattern printed in colour please contact us prior to submitting your order for pricing. 

Q: Can you alter files?

We cannot alter pattern files in any way. Our maximum width is 36", if your file is larger than this we will not be able to print it at 100% scale. We are also not able to reformat A4 or letter files into wide format files.
