PDF Guidance

  • PDFs must be downloaded to your computer, and then opened and printed in Adobe Acrobat Reader, a free software program. Note that when you click "download here", it will initially open the file in another internet browser window. You MUST download it from here to your computer, and then print from Adobe Reader. If you attempt to print from the browser it will not print correctly.
  • We recommend printing from a computer, and not a mobile or tablet device, which tend to not print correctly.
  • To make sure your printer is printing at the right scale, select "no scaling" or "custom scaling = 100%". Always print the first page only and check that the test square is exactly 1" before printing the full file. 
  • Under "orientation" select "auto portrait/landscape"
  • The 1" grid must print in the center of the page, with a white border all around it. If it doesn't, it has not printed correctly. Adjust the settings until the grid is centered. 
  • The files are layered so you can just print the size(s) you require. On the left hand side of the screen on Adobe Reader click the "layers" icon (a stack of squares). Always select "layers" and "grid", and then just select the sizes you require. Here is more help on printing layers on a PDF pattern. 
  • Only print the pages you require for the cup size you are using (C/D, E/F or G/H). For each pattern, there is guidance on which pages to print for each cup size.
