We intarsians are lucky. We have an enormous choice when it comes to patterns and plans.
Some are almost works of art themselves, printed on high-quality, transparent vellum. The drawback is you pay $9 or more, then another $8 shipping. Plenty of people think they’re worth it though, and we wouldn’t argue.
But a lot of folks don’t want to pay $17 for an intarsia pattern, then wait days for it to arrive. That’s why we developed instant intarsia pattern downloads.
They cost you a lot less than traditional plans, there’s no shipping and no waiting. What’s more, there’s no running to the copy shop – you print them at home, as many times as you like, at whatever size your printer will allow.
So it’s no surprise that over the last fifteen years hundreds of intarsia artists have chosen to buy their intarsia patterns like this. Simply add your choices to the cart, checkout like any other store, and a few minutes later you can be out in your shop using them!
We’re not expecting intarsia pattern downloads to replace traditional plans, but if you see a pattern you like it’s a fast, easy alternative and it will save you money.
While you’re here checking out the site, take a minute to join the free Pattern Club and we’ll send you a couple of samples. There’s no cost and no commitment, so why not?
Intarsia Pattern FAQs
There’s another reason. A lot of intarsians like to work with hardwoods, and that’s great, but some like to stain softwood as a cheaper alternative (same goes for people doing scrollsaw segmentation). Using our plans, and the full color picture of the finished piece, you can put your own interpretation on a pattern without sticking strictly to a set of someone else’s rules – and that’s what making art is all about.
