If you are like me, then you will relate to purchasing PDF patterns and having to print the A4 version, taping together, and the time and effort that takes. I recently printed a pattern with 82 pages. Not only are you wasting paper but also your printer’s ink too. So, I thought other than Officeworks, where the heck can you get these files printed.
I did an extensive Google search and came across a post about this very subject. They recommend a company in NSW called LINDFIELD PRINT. Give them a call, they emailed me a link to upload my A0 files and then sent me a quote. These prices were quoted to me.
A0 Bond Prints
Black x 1 side, 80gsm Bond
Qty 1-4: $5.50 each inc GST
Qty 5-19: $4.65 each inc GST
Qty 20-49: $3.85 each inc GST
Qty 50-99:$3.30 each inc GST
I think yes there is the extra cost however, if you have so many patterns, how much A4 sheets of paper are you printing, not to mention the actual printer ink. So I guess you have to weight it up.
Another thing about this Print company is that they actually print patterns for another client, ie a business that sells patterns. So you can rest assured that you will get your files printed correctly.
Let me know how you went, I am in the process of getting some done too so I’ll report back once I get my order.
