I am looking at a pattern to purchase from a business in Europe. The pattern comes in a PDF file, and the gentleman say I would need an A3 printer to print it on. I not sure what that mean although it looks like an A3 printer uses 11.7 x 16.5 paper. If it is in a PDF file can I print it as a poster on my 8.5 x 11 printer? I don't know if that makes sense. Or, can I print it on 8.5 x 11 and take that to a copier in increase the size? Will that distort of loose the proper measurement?? I don't really know what I'm asking here. I'd like to get the pattern, of coarse electronically is cheaper than hard copy but I don't want a file I can't get printer.
