  • Enlarging patterns at Kinkos.

    I've been framing my 11x14 pieces in 14x16 frames. Looking at some I think they would be better if larger, as in cut at 14x16 and framed 16x20 or so. Well problem is all patterns come on 11x17 paper at best and copier at work only goes that size to. Can I take a pattern I bought from Scroller Ltd. or Wooden Teddy Bear, for example, to Kinkos and enlarge it to my needs? Would they do it with copyright right stuff stamped on bottom? I understand the copyright stuff to mean I can make as many copies as I want as long as I don't sell the copies and only make the cut pieces from the patterns to sell. Am I interpreting that right? I really want to make a piece larger and do not want to have to do it in 2 pieces of a pattern taped together on the wood. Thats to aggravating to get them to line back up right. I'd rather have the pattern all on 1 piece of paper.

    I've had several patterns copied or enlarged at kinko's with no problem..
    11x17 is their largest standard copy, anything bigger they do one a poster copier..

      We put the 10 copy blurb on our patterns so places like Kinkos WILL make copies for you...sometimes if there is not a release like that, the copy place won't even make the copies!

        I am fortunate that I have access to a copier that will copy 36 wide by almost any length. Too bad my saw wouldnt cut like that
        I like to scan my patterns and save them as PDF files. Most copy shops can scale PDFs accordingly and the image quality is usually retained.

          I have no problem making larger patterns on multiple sheets of paper and taping them together. Of course I used to be a paper hanger so lining patterns up is second nature to me.

              The Kinkos I go to is all self-serve, so no problems at all. Even the wide format copiers are self-serve. They'll do up to something like 48 x 48. I've never had a problem there.

                my kinko's is the same way, you can copy 48" wide and actually the length can be 100 feet ! that's gotta cost a few bucks.
                I find it a bit cheaper though to go to a blueprint shop. There's one in lansing that can go 10 feet square. There's a few architect buildings with the big 36" copiers too, and they are the cheapest. Those are not photocopy advertising type places, but you show up and they are happy to do it.

                  After rereading the copyright thing I wonder still. The Scroller Ltd. says:
                  "The purchaser of this pattern is granted the right to make the fininshed projects contained on this pattern for personal use, as gifts or to sell at craft shows, flea markets, etc." So far so good. Here's the questionable part. " Any other use of this pattern, not specifically authorized in writing, such as copying ( in whole or part), ... is strictly prohibited...." There is the copying part. If ya' get a grump at the counter having a bad day they might read that as saying, " can't copy it man, says its not allowed " , and I've done drove 60 miles for nothing. You can read that as saying "no copying" and that you can only use this one pattern to make ya' stuff with or just don't make a bunch of kits or resell the pattern. Am I reading this correctly or is it just me?

                    One issue I found with the insert that comes with the saw was the areas they smoothed for the kickback pawls. If the insert is leveled correctly, those areas are sitting about 1/32-inch below the table. I had a problem with some small pieces getting caught and jamming because of that. Sawstop's recommendation...

                    That is a definit rescue for a special project. I rarely get or use any pallet wood. But did use some from the pallet that my drill press was on. It looked like pine but was was very hard, carefully checked for nails and ran it through the drum sander with some 80 grit to get rid of any small grit.

                    I wish I could post the video as it looks better with the lights blinking. I used some red clear plastic behind the eyes and nose. It was a fun project.

                    Maybe a star shining to tell us something? That piece of wood is a very special piece! Good eye.
