Fabric Designs

Create New Topic
Showing 1 - 10 of 10 Comments


I am interested in creating fabric from some of my designs.
I saw www.spoonflower.com is in partnership with Colourlovers.
How do I go about getting a design printed on fabric?

Please also let me know if I can change the size of my design (as one might change a font size when typing letters).

I'd really like to know with whom I could speak (e-mail or call) about this.



review design

I am wondering the same thing. Did you receive answers?


No - this is where the answer would have been posted and no one contacted me personally. i took a look at Spoonflower and joined the Group. I think I'll have to follow-up there. If you find out anything, please let me know (here).

Create Your Own Fabric

Since I started the linked thread many other companies in addition to the three I mentioned have emerged and the variety of fabric options has expanded. Shop to find the fabric you need for your project. Many sites have design engines that allow you to choose whether you want to float a single image on fabric for something like a mural or to use one of their pattern generators for a drapery, clothing or upholstery application.

Rather than listing them all here, I would suggest you search for "Digital Fabric Printing" or "Digital Textile Printing" in something like the Google search engine for current options. I have nothing against Spoonflower by the way. I've had no use for fabric myself but others I have sent there were happy with the service.


So do we know how to get our designs over to spoonflower.com or??
I'm desperate to so I print some fabrics! :)


I've googled for other companies that is providing this kind of service, however, there are actually not many of them.

Only designs that are made by us originally can be uploaded into spoonflower. You can request for sample of fabrics first. If you are satisfy, you can order your own fabric print. Some of the blogs I read before recommended spoonflower..


Have you read the facts and questions on the site? That might be able to help you.


If you have created the template yourself (and only if it's your template) there will be an icon on the side of the swatch that says "Fabric" and if you click on that picture, it redirects you to Spoonflower and loads the fabric swatch. Pretty convenient.

I've actually printed and ordered a few things from spoonflower. Made some great pillows for my couch, and I love them because I created them! You do have to order a swatch, but you can also sell your designed fabric there and get credits to your account if other people buy them. I have created swatches for a few people on CL and allowed them to purchase fabric with my patterns on them.


Very helpful platform.


Was that sarcasm coryslater?

I guess our default strategy now is ctrl+a, ctrl+c on a comment just in case we lose it without it being posted. Last week I had to re-write a comment 3 times before I learned. :P

My one wish through being patient while the bugs are worked out and the spammers run off is that management would make a short statement.

I am all for being patient while much needed changes are made to the site, but the complete absence of communication is very disturbing.
I feel it is a lack of respect towards the community to just leave us worrying and guessing every. bloody. time.

We have sat out weeks of CL not working because of DoS-Attacks, we've experienced several (for us: surprise) shut-downs as updates were implemented, we have grappled with the buggy fallout of many of these updates - and never a comment, a warning, a heads-up, an anything from anybody in charge.

Are we not worth being informed?

And now I sit and wait to see if this comment will actually be posted. I have not been able to comment anywhere, not even my own profile, for days.

Came back after being gone for 2 years to this disappointment, Also, once again, experienced issues with Seamless Light errors. Captchas are a pain in the butt (especially when they make you click though 3 pages of pics); however, I understand the need for them.

Have you tried another browser, like Google Chrome? I just tried Firefox and BPM (basic palette maker) worked fine and BPM also worked fine with Chrome. How about Photocopa? Have you tried making palettes that way? I'm just trying to help - I know it can be frustrating.

I understand you are. We're all frustrated. :)
I seemed able to make a basic palette in IE, but some of the pages on the site (like the homepage and login) take so long to load that they occasionally just lock up and stay blank. Other ones load quickly. I don't have Chrome on this computer, - I'd have to try it later on my laptop when I can access it.

TBH, I don't think I ever used Photocopa for my palettes. It never quite did what I wanted, and 90% of my palettes aren't based off photos.
