Digital Pattern Information
This information only applies if you have purchased the PDF version of a pattern. NOT all patterns come with a PDF version.
What are PDF patterns?
PDF downloads are patterns that are purchased online & printed on your home computer by you. These patterns are NOT shipped to you by mail so no shipping charges apply – that’s a savings of up to $17 especially our international customers! PDF’s are instantly accessible once payment has been processed and are emailed to the address you provided in your online account.
Do I need special software to access my PDF downloads?
The only software you need to access PDF is the very common Adobe Acrobat Reader which is a free program. Click here to download Adobe Reader for free. Other media sources can be used to view PDFs such as iPads & iPhones (you can open in iBooks) or other tablet PDF readers available by app store for Androids. PDFs can also be emailed to your Kindle for viewing but file sizes of larger PDFs (many eBooks) may make emailing prohibitive. We cannot guarantee our all of our PDFs will be of a size that will allow them to be emailed.
How will I know which version of a pattern I am purchasing?
Indygo Junction patterns come in a variety of versions. Some patterns come in PDF format only. Some come in printed version only. Some come with a choice. Please read the title and description to identify if a pattern comes in a single version only. PDF download only patterns are clearly marked. If a pattern comes in both formats, you will be required to make a version selection before you can add that pattern to your cart.
If I purchase a download, how do I get it to my computer?
Once a PDF is purchased and your payment had been processed, a link to download your PDF will be emailed to you immediately via the email address you provided during checkout.
How do I save the file to my computer?
We do recommend that the first thing you do is SAVE your PDF to your computer. Every computer is different. Some computers will ask where you want to save the file when you click your download link. Many computer automatically download all files to a specific folder designated by the computer owner or as a default when the computer was originally set up. Many times this folder is called “Downloads”. Please refer to your own computer settings to locate your files.
How do I print my file once I open it on my computer?
Be sure to print your patterns at 100% (not "shrink-go-fit" or "fit to media"). You can check if your pattern pieces have printed the correct size by measuring the "blue one inch square" in your pattern. This square should measure one inch. If it does not, your printer settings may need to be modified. When you click print, check the options that pop-up to make sure you are printing page at 100%.
