What is an E-pattern?

If you've never heard of an E-pattern boy are you in for a treat! If your an advid pattern buyer or collector with hordes of patterns (you know who you are (=), E-patterns are another great way to purchase (and for some...collect) craft patterns.

So what is an E-pattern?

An E-pattern is a pattern that you can purchase online and get it sent to you via e-mail. It's a great way to purchase patterns and there's no need to wait on it to arrive in the mail. This is especially helpful for customers that live overseas. Instead of waiting sometimes several weeks to get their pattern, they can have it within 24 hours via e-mail.

So what is an I-pattern™?

I-patterns™ is a concept created by where craft patterns can be downloaded instantly. No more waiting for the mailman, no more waiting for the designer to e-mail you the pattern but rather you can purchase your pattern and download it instantly!

What are the benefits to I-patterns™?

The great thing besides what I've already mentioned about getting your pattern instantly, is that it prints just the same as what you would get in the mail. If you collect patterns and prefer to have them bagged so you can catalog them. Simply print, fold and put the pattern in a pattern bag. It's as easy as that. also offers mailed patterns if you prefer. Also I-patterns™ are generally less costly than mailed patterns. With I-patterns™ and E-patterns the benefits are that as the designer you use less printing paper, ink, pattern bags and save time. Also if you need to mail out a pattern, simply print it, bag it and put in an envelope and voila, just mail it out to your customer. Customers benefit by being able to have instant gratification when they order a instant pattern. Plus they benefit by the lower cost of instant patterns.

What if I'm a Pattern Designer and want to offer I-patterns™?

If you are a designer and are interested in offering your patterns, you will need to put them in PDF format.
