For years, we have sold our patterns in printed format only. Today our context has changed: our audience is not just in France anymore but truly international, and even though we have always tried to keep our shipping prices as low as possible, we know that access to our patterns can be difficult to some of our farthest customers (unreliable postal services, shipping delays…). That’s why we decided to start offering our patterns in PDF format as well.
We were set on creating PDF patterns that would compare to our printed ones in terms of quality. So last year we conducted a survey to learn more about your habits and preferences with this format. We were so touched by the number of responses we got! Thanks to all of you, we were able to come up with a product that we hope will meet your expectations 🙂
Each Deer&Doe PDF pattern contains:
We tried to limit the number of pages to print and tape together as much as we could: whenever possible, we offer one file per version with only the pattern pieces needed for that specific version. A file for “all versions” is always available in case you want to mix and match variations!
In order to make reading and cutting the patterns easier, all our PDF files have size layers: you can hide the sizes you’re not interested in and print only the ones you want!
Finally, we offer two different methods for taping the patterns together: you can either trim the pages and tape, or use the paper’s transparency to overlap the pages 🙂
One aspect we cared about a lot was for you to be able to access your PDF patterns anywhere, anytime: downloading them on your computer to print the pattern sheet, reading the instruction booklet on your tablet, looking up yardage on your phone in the middle of your favorite fabric store… so we came up with a PDF library system that gathers all your Deer&Doe digital patterns in the same place.
Select the language in which you want to download your pattern and click “Download”. A new window will open, which will show all of this pattern’s files. You can either download all of them by clicking “Donwload All”, or download only the files you need at the moment.
Once bought, all of your Deer&Doe patterns are available forever, with no time limit or limited number of downloads! They are also generated automatically for you and, just like our printed patterns, are for private use only. Since they are linked to your account, if you want to send one to a friend as a gift, you’ll have to purchase a Gift Voucher!
