  • Carl,
    Quick answers (that deserve longer explanations soon):
    * digital printing
    * the inks (pigments, actually) are quite permanent and washfast
    * we can’t do large quantities yet but hope to soon
    * not sure what the max will be, but would love to hear from you how much you would like to be able to order if you could… useful feedback.

  • Can you tell us what printing process is used to print the fabric (digital, silkscreen)? Are the inks permanent? I wonder why there is no discount for larger quantities? When Spoonflower is out of beta, how large a quantity will be available?

  • Oh crud…I just scrolled down and found the answer to my question. I don’t know how to make my design a full yard, but perhaps one of your readers can tell me? I have a scattered design, so perhaps it’s easy to set it at a full yard. Who knows?

  • So I am wondering…I have a hand drawn item that I can scan into Photoshop (which I don’t really know how to use), but I’m curious about the tile that will happen. I’m not sure I want the lines and seams. If I hand cut it and piece it together again in the way that will allow it to repeat and then scan it in, can you make it repeat? Or will it be a tile (with seams showing) of my newly cut up pattern? I like the repeat effect, not the tile, but I just don’t know how to do it myself.
    I’ll check back to find the answer, but if you had free time to email the answer, I’d love that too! (har har…I don’t even know if you have time to read this, let alone answer).
