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.


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 have an A3 printer which I can print on borderless A3 paper giving me 30 cms (12") wide paper that I use for scrapbooking, covering notebooks, etc. I use my own designs only as I am reselling and most of the designs on here do not have a commercial license.

You can check some of the online stock sites, such as Pixabay. Often, there are patterns and they have liberal terms! You should be able to incorporate a pattern you find there and sell it or do whatever you like!

Hi Edith - thanks for posting this. I have been getting the same pop-up updates about Flash. I did the exact same thing as you. I close out the tab! I wonder what other scams might come our way. I just want to be here to color. *sigh*
Anyway, I truly appreciate you "just saying", Edith.

Over the past week I've been troubled by a page direct to some site telling me Apple wants me to update my Flash Player. Don't you dare do it. How do I know this is a scam? First, there's a questionable web address, and how would Apple know what Flash Player I have, and if they did, wouldn't they tell me in an offical update? Second, I know my Flash Player is current, because I went to the OFFICIAL Adobe site, and installed the latest current one just in case, and I still get these redirects. I think these adlinks that infest the CL pages now can tell through cookies that I enabled Flash (which is dormant by default in Apple software because it's a known malware risk) long enough to design a new template for the site. Third, since I know Flash software is vulnerable to hacking, any unasked-for communication about it through my browser is suspect.

I just wanted you to know these are happening, and to never never click on one of these pages. If you get one, close the tab immediately. If you ever question your Flash installation, download new software ONLY through the official Adobe site, adobe.com.

Just saying.
