Guide & Tips: Geometric Pattern Maker & Generator

Use this online Geometric Pattern Generator to create your own free printable, personalized repeating patterns. Great for coloring pages, wall art, for cutting machines (Cricut and Silhouette), for stencils, for painting and coloring, for sewing and quilting, for wood working projects and patterns, and other DIY arts and crafts. Images created using this software cannot be uploaded to a community of creatives or an online media repository (e.g., Pixabay, OpenClipArt).
 
1. Current patterns include: bricks, circles, circle with petals, grid, lines, diamonds, fish scales, hearts, hexagon, honeycomb, squares, halloween pumpkins, Christmas trees. Let us know if there is a pattern you would like.
 
2. Some patterns can be converted to coloring pages or sheets by selecting the fill color "White".
 
3. Selecting the "No color" option None - no color combined with saving your design in PNG format can be used to create a transparent image.

4. If saving in PNG, JPG, or PDF format, you may specify the desired width and height of your new repeating geometric design. SVG images can be scaled to any size after downloading. If "Preserve Aspect Ratio" is set to "Yes", then the "width" of your image is automatically calculated. Changing the "height" will automatically change the "width". Your image will be scaled porportionally. The size of your image may change, but the overall shape will not change.

Height: 100 pixels.

Height: 60 pixels.
 
If "Preserve Aspect Ratio" is set to "No", your new image will match the values entered in the textboxes for "Width" and "Height."

5. Images can currently be sized to a maximum width or height of 3000 pixels (or a minimum width and height of 10 pixels).
 
6. For images that will be used for print (e.g. coloring sheets), either save the images in PDF format, or specify a large pixel value. Keep in mind, most printers use a resolution of 300 dpi (dots per inch) or ppi (points per inch). If you want your final image to look sharp at 5 inches, then you would want to specify a pixel size of at least 1500 pixels (5 inches * 300 ppi). The PDF files are automatically saved at 300 pixel per inch (ppi). SVG (Scalable Vector Graphics) can be scaled to any size without losing quality.
 
7. For best quality, save images in SVG (Scalable Vector Graphics) format. Once saved, you can open SVG files using a web browser (Chrome, Safari, FireFox) and print them. SVG files can also be opened and printed using Adobe Illustrator, Adobe Photoshop, InDesign, CorelDraw, and the free programs Inkscape and Gimp.
 
8. See resizing and printing images, if you need help with printing images, resizing images consistently, or printing images (on multiple pages).
