      Why are some products only Digital?

      We would love to offer all our products as paper patterns, however space and budget do not allow for that. We watch for sales volume, demand and complexity. If a product is better served as a printed pattern, we print it.

      Why can't I check out?

      If you are outside of the United States you need to use our Etsy shop ( for orders. They handle all the complicated overseas tax stuff for us.
