Print Ready for Sewing Pattern Designers

Sewing Pattern Designers or sellers who want to find printing vendors for the patterns  require a well-rounded curriculum covering a wide range of needs in file set-up, basic related business and logistics.

This Workshop is designed specifically for Sewing Pattern Designers who are looking for a way to sell Printed Sewing Patterns on their own Website that can be printed, shipped and fulfilled externally.

Whether or not you sign up to use Nerida's Full end-to-end Print, pack and ship service, it is important to have a good understanding of how sewing patterns can be printed or sold as PDF, and what steps are necessary in preparing home sewing patterns both for PDF and for Print.

For anyone wanting to onboard Nerida's DIY Print-On-Demand Service this workshop is compulsory as you need to appreciate and understand the basic principles and processes of manufacturing Sewing Patterns.  Even if you have extensive experience, this course will close any gaps in the processes that may be unique to Nerida's Supplier.
