How to print PDF Copyshop files (cheap options)
Readytosew patterns comes in two formats, print at home ( A4 or Letter ) or A0 copyshop files. There are pros and cons to each of the Readytosew patterns formats. If you hate trimming and taping the pages of a print at home PDF pattern and prefer using the A0 copyshop file even if it adds a few $ to the price of your pattern, this post is for you ! Some people think that once you add that to the cost of the PDF pattern, you may be better off just buying a printed pattern... however, there are in fact some cheap options that may cost you less than a printed pattern ( based on the price of Readytosew sewing patterns which is €10,20 VAT included ) . Let's see the different options you have depending on your country:
