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.

Thanks,

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).

Thanks,

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?

Since Aug 2018, I can longer upload or publish templates I create using Seamless Studio. In Seamless Studio, I'll create a template, and click on "Upload to Colourlovers," my browser opens a new tab to CL but it just goes to a blank Seamless Lite page, and I am not logged in on that page. This happens whether I am already signed in to CL or not.

When I used to "Upload to Colourlovers," a CL would open on the browser saying something like "we have your template but you need to sign in." I would sign in, and my template would be ready to publish.

Hello community! Could you let us know if you're still experiencing the issues with Recaptcha and the patterns? Please write to editor@colourlovers.com
It's easier for us to keep track of what needs to be fixed this way. Thanks! :)

Thank you so much!! And I fixed the login issue today-it was a stupid settings issue on my part, not a site bug.
