Until recently, each and every one of Bontrager’s prints were folded by hand. “On average, I could hand-fold about 60-70 patterns per hour,” she says. “It was not only time-consuming and labor-intensive, but it was also hard to keep a consistent size, and the end product was bulky.” But with the help of the Estefold 3000, Bontrager can get closer to 100 folds per hour, “and the wear and tear on the human is a lot less! We get so much more consistency in size as well as a tighter, flatter end product. And our turn-around time is fast and efficient!”
Bontrager is now sharing this newfound efficiency with other indie pattern designers by way of Pattern Printers, a website that offers large-format printing options for indie pattern designers and consumers. These fellow creatives receive their sewing patterns professionally printed and crisply folded – ready to spread their love of wearable art to the masses.
Explore the sewing patterns and other offerings over at Dana Marie Design Co., The Sewing Place, and Pattern Printers.
