Has anyone used this company,
Spoonflower, to print their own fabrics? I just read about them in the NY Times Thursday, Jan 6th
Home Section. They say you can have your fabric printed for $18/yd or $5 for an 8"x8" swatch.

Wouldn't it be cool to design the 8x8 for the center panel of a purse? I am coming up with lots of ideas here in my head!

Ody, I checked that website a couple of months ago thinking I could print a realistic looking butterfly from a photo I shot. But the online simulation turned out disappointingly primitive -- it looked like a coarse cartoon. The images need to be simple -- you lose anything subtle or complex.

I have used Spoonflower. My biggest "complaint" is that the color wasn't true to what I expected. That being said, they did warn about the color shift and of course you have to take into consideration your monitor. I got a sample and knew ahead of time that the color was a little off but I liked it so it didn't matter. I'll be making a dress with one of them this weekend so I'll post it and you'll be able to see the detail. The only problem was when there was an error with the printing. However their customer service is excellent and they fixed it right away. It's not cheap but I think it's well worth the money for something unique.

Curious, did the color palettes for Illustrator or Photoshop help at all? Looking forward to your final product post.

I loaded their palettes but it didn't really help. I was going for a darker green and ended up closer to a grass green. It's still pretty so I'm not upset about it. The other consideration is they suggest sending it a lab format I believe but my file was so large I had to send it as a jpeg. I'm not sure if that had any affect.
