I have been browsing the site for quite a while and have noticed that more and more well known Fabric Designers are using Spoonflower to sell fabric designs.
It works around a very innovative concept, it allows you to create custom fabric designs, print them for your own use, and, SELL THEM TOO.
As I am experimenting with surface pattern and repeat designs it is the perfect way to get samples of my work printed up onto the real thing. There is a wealth of information available to help you reach your goals, so with a bit of extra instruction regarding LAB colour spaces, and some tips, tricks, and tutorials about digital fabric printing I should be ready to start producing quite soon. They also organise a "Fabric of the week" competition where you can enter your designs or vote for designs you admire in the current competition. As I can never resist a good competition I think I'm hooked!
I opened my "nice and fancy" account at Spoonflower yesterday so watch this space for the latest news on fancy fabric swatches.
P.S. Whilst registering my account I voted for Bright by Rabble, Friut Salad by Cynthia Frenette, and Paisley by Snork, in the Paisley competition (see above images).
