Once you’ve expressed your interest, I contact you via email to sort out the details of communication. We’ll organise a timeslot and once received, I send an estimate of how long I think your pattern will take to edit. If at any point I realise I will need to go over this estimate to finish your edit, I will contact you and we can discuss options.
I’ll check through the pattern maths, grammar, spelling, and general consistency. I believe in retaining the designer’s unique voice, so I send any revisions as markups or comments which you can incorporate as you see fit. The first draft will be sent to you in your preferred format with any suggestions and comments. I prefer to work with PDF files, but am also happy to use word documents or LaTeX files.
I then double check what you send back, which is usually a quicker run through than the initial edit. It can sometimes take more than one or two drafts to finalise a pattern. I always ask to do a final check of the pattern, which is free up to 15 minutes. I send my invoice along with the final revision.
If there’s anything I’m unsure of or there are any major issues, I’ll contact you as soon as possible. I aim for a turnaround of 2-3 business days, but this could be shorter or longer depending on pattern complexity.
If you need extra support at any point during the edit and prefer a more face-to-face style, each tech edit comes with a free 15 minute video consultation.
