We recently put a call out via Instagram and Facebook to ask where our sewing community get their Style Arc wide format patterns printed. When you buy a PDF pattern from Style Arc you get tiled files for printing on standard office paper. You also get wide format files for printing on 36″ wide, or wider, paper. For some, more recent styles, we also send you patterns formatted for printing on A0 paper sheets (841 mm x 1,189 mm). It is often easier to find print shops that can print on A0 paper, and printing is often cheaper than wider paper formats. Hopefully the A0 option will make printing your wide format PDF patterns more economical. We’re hoping to roll out our new styles in A0 format.
Not everyone has the time or patience to stick together tiled files – the alternative is to get a local printer to print the wide format files for you. Some printers offer an online service and they can print and ship your PDF patterns for you – this is great if you need extra copies. We had a wonderful response with suggestions for printing services from all around the world. We were very grateful to everyone who got in touch. Please note that the companies we have listed below have been suggested to us – we have not used them personally. If you have another favourite company that has printed patterns for you and you think we should add them to the list please get in touch by filling out the contact form here and let us know who they are, where they are located and give us their website or contact details.
Please keep in mind that some of these businesses may have restrictions on trade currently in place due to the COVID-19 outbreak. The situation around the world is changing fast.
