How to change the size of a pricking pattern

The question of how to reduce a pricking pattern to fit a smaller card size was put to us by Stitching Cards customer Carolyn.

The ability to scale your print out with the Adobe PDF reader was discontinued in Adobe Reader 9. Fortunately the Foxit PDF reader has an option to scale the printout as a percentage.

The Foxit reader is a free download from:

Foxit PDF reader print settings

Another option found on the Foxit reader is to “Print as Grayscale”. This would be useful if you had a colour printer but wanted red dots on the on the Stitching Cards pattern instructions to print as black.
