Free Pattern Adjustments for PDF Downloads
At Artecy Cross Stitch we care very much about offering patterns that are easy to stitch. We go through and change symbols in patterns that are too similar and we try to limit the amount of colours used and the size of the completed designs so they are more affordable and easier to stitch, whilst still retaining great detail in the designs. For customers wanting a challenge you can request for any of our designs to be made as a larger cross stitch design and if it is possible we will design a larger version, usually close to double the completed size.
For any patterns purchased as PDF files from our Artecy Shop website www.artecyshop.com we also offer our free pattern adjustment services if required. Customers will download the standard black and white symbols after purchasing on the website. These are still very readable, our older patterns are around 60 stitches across each page, and we now work with around 55 stitches across per page. Our large symbol versions are around 40 stitches across each page.
after you download your pattern you would prefer larger black and white
symbols or a coloured pattern (with coloured blocks behind the
symbols), or a coloured pattern with larger symbols or an optimized
pattern for tablet use please let us know
and we can easily email a copy through to you. Adjusted
patterns are usually emailed through within 24 hours.
If you do order a coloured pattern, we also make sure you have a black and white symbol version too so you can use this as a reference as some of the symbols with very dark colours behind them can be hard to see.
We offer Optimized patterns for tablet use such as ipads, Samsung Galaxy etc. Our current standard pdf files will work fine on the current mobile devices, if you highlight over a stitch at a time, however as they are compressed pdf files to make them smaller, when using programs such as ezpdf if you search for symbols this function will not work correctly. Our optimized patterns will allow for this search function to work for you.
We also include this information in our receipt email after purchasing pdf patterns from our Artecy Shop, so you can reply to our email if you like. Unfortunately we cannot offer all of these different versions of patterns to download directly from our website and our retailers websites due to the large size of these adjusted pdfs and the website space they will take up.
Our pdf files are also sold through three other retailers www.crosstitch.com www.patternsonline.com and www.cross-stitchdownloads.com We are happy to provide the same services if you purchase one of our pdf downloads from these websites, however we need to confirm payment, so please provide a receipt /order number with your request so we can confirm your payment.
Unfortunately these service are not available for our printed and posted patterns purely due to the high printing and postage costs of these adjusted patterns. These services are also unavailable for our free patterns
the samples below you will find some information which may help
get get you started if you have not stitched these style of designs
for starting your patterns.
We so hope you enjoy stitching our designs. If you have any further queries please let me know.
and Best Wishes
