How to purchase and upload your prints

Making your Order

On the product page, choose if you would like your prints printed in either colour or black-and-white:


We print from PDF and there are often multiple pages in the file. You will need to know how many pages are in your PDF, so your order is priced accordingly.

You can do this by viewing your file in a PDF Reader like Adobe Acrobat Reader which is free to download. Your mobile device may already have this type of software installed.

Please enter how many pages are in the PDF:

Add any notes or queries you have with your order. E.g. if you want specific sizes printed.

It is a good idea to add the name of the pattern here too. This helps you to keep track of your uploads later.

Tell us here if you want more than 1 copy of your file printed.

So, for example, if you have a file with 1 sheet and you want for 4 copies enter “4” in the quantity box and you will receive 4 x identical A0 prints:

Order your prints one pattern at a time. Go to the basket and either pay or continue shopping.

An Example

E.g. pattern 1 has 2 sheets which you want in greyscale.

– Add select greyscale from the dropdown, add 2 in the “sheets” box then click “Add to basket”:

– Click continue shopping.

– Pattern 2 has 3 sheets which you want in colour.

Select colour from dropdown, enter “3” in the “Sheets” box and click “Add to basket”.

– Repeat if you have more patterns.

Checkout and Payment


– Checkout will take your details for delivery. You can then pay via PayPal:

Log in and complete your payment.

Click the “Return to Merchant” button at the bottom of the PayPal page (you may need to scroll down to see this) and you will return to Flamingo Prints:

You will be returned to an order confirmation page, where you can now upload your files:

You will have 1 upload to complete for each pattern purchased. Click “Choose file” next to each listed pattern (order details and your notes will be displayed to help you attach the correct file for each pattern) and upload your file. It will say “File uploaded”, once the upload is complete.

Continue until all corresponding files have been uploaded then click:

You will be returned to the Flamingo Prints homepage.

If you want to order stitched patterns and / or instructions booklets, the
process is exactly the same.

Your order is now complete.

Can I print any sewing company’s pdf pattern?

What if PDF file has been provided as separate pages?
If PDF has been supplied as separate A4 pages – please select the stitched pattern service.
