Direct 2 Customer

We Print - Pack - Dispatch, while you work on the next amazing show stopper.

  • Space

    Printed patterns take up a lot of space and may not sell as fast as we all hope.

  • No Upfront Stock Cost

    Start-up's do not always have a lot of cash to purchase bulk stock.

    Established companies have enough to pay for when a pattern is released.

  • No-Limits

    No minimum or maximum quantities per order or per month.

Sewing patterns are often released with lots of testing and
research done to make sure they are suitable for the hobbyist. You order hundreds
of sets ready to dispatch, send them out and someone finds an error. It happens
to the biggest designers as often as it happens to the independent designers. That’s,
potentially hundreds or even thousands of pounds in stock you can’t sell and
more money in getting the new version printed. Then there is storage of printed
patterns. Somewhere safe so they do not get damaged and always look as good as
new. Bring out another amazing pattern and the cycle starts all over again.

With our Direct 2 Customer print on demand service, you do
not need to order any copies to hold in stock. That’s when print on demand really
sells itself. Every time you send us a customer order, we print the files using
our professional grade machines, check, pack, then dispatch directly to your
customer. We do not add any advertising materials or make any contact with your
customer. The only bit with our name on is the return part of the postage label,
nothing we can do about that, but it does mean we deal with any undelivered orders.

When you sign up to Direct 2 Customer, we create an account
for you to make the orders. You select the pattern, add the customers address
to the shipping details and make payment.

Bulk Order Discount

Bulk order discounts only apply to a single delivery address. If you make a large order that you want delivered to one of your wholesale customers, the discount is applied, and we still send directly to the customer.


The majority of our orders go with Evri. They have proven reliable and reasonably priced compared to the competitors.

We avoid Royal Mail where ever possible as they have proven extremely unreliable.

We normally use DPD or UPS for bulk orders as they offer higher insurance.
Almost everything we send has tracking at no extra cost.

This excludes Northern Island and other island communities around the UK as we are forced to use Royal Mail.

International postage is invoiced separately at cost price.
