We are still in the process of defining the look and feel of Spoonflower, so the logo you see is temporary. At some point it might be nice to post two or three options and to let the group of testers vote on their favorite. Right now the leading candidate is something along these lines:
Thanks for visiting Spoonflower, a soon-to-be-launched resource for folks who love to sew and make beautiful things.
By signing up through the link below you will allow us to notify you
when the beta version of our Web site is launched. Beta testers get to
see a site in its earliest stages when there are likely to be bugs and
missing features, so it’s not for everyone. But in return for testing
the site and sharing your suggestions with us you will not only earn
our eternal gratitude, you’ll also join a select crowd that gets to
hear about a cool new service before anyone else.

We received well over 400 responses to our modest Spoonflower Interest Survey and it is clear that — however the details may vary — LOTS of you are interested in designing your own fabric!
Special thanks to the fantastic folks at Sew, Mama, Sew who posted a link to our survey, as well as to Burda Style and the fabulous craft-bloggers who also posted links: MeggieCat, Secret Cave of the Sugar Mama, MyLittleSewingSpot, and SadieAndLance.
I know you are anxious to get started, but please bear with us for a
few weeks. We hope to get things around here up and running by May.
While we wait for the big show to begin, I’d like to invite folks to submit images of things they’ve made — fun bags, clothes, pillows, and the like — for us to post here (with a link back to your blog, Etsy shop, or what-have-you). You can send photos or photo-links to kim at spoonflower dot com.
Welcome to Spoonflower. Our ears are always open. There is much more to come.
