For my January Seamwork patterns, I got them printed at Kinko’s because last time, pasting together 40 some pages for the Oslo took way too much of my life (3 episodes of Castle). I still trace out the pattern because if it’s the wrong size, I don’t want to have to get it reprinted. It wouldn’t be so bad, but still not cheap. The Manila leggings cost about $10 and the Savannah camisole was about $5. The Savannah is about half the size of the Manila, but in both cases, totally worth hours of my life.
Coincidentally, there was a Sew Mama Sew article on printing patterns at the copy shop a few days after I’d had mine printed. I was already versed in most of that (as I had just printed it) but I liked how she stored her patterns by rolling them up. However, I used a different method for labeling. I grabbed an old toilet paper tube and stuck through there and then wrote the name on there. This worked great and gives it a nice sturdy “handle.” I think I’ll keep doing this for my large format printed patterns since it will make them all roll up to roughly the same size.
