Last week in our newsletter we asked folks to weigh in on their preferences for new fabrics and over a thousand of you took the time to fill out our survey. Thank you! Those who completed the survey and submitted their email addresses were entered in a drawing — completed this morning courtesy of Random.org — for two free yards of Spoonflower fabric. And the lucky winner is Liz Whiting!
We’re looking to do this kind of thing more often, so be sure you’ve opted in to our weekly email, Twitter, Facebook, etc. (email settings: click on ‘your account’ in the upper right corner after you’ve logged into Spoonflower, check the box to ‘stay in touch’ at the bottom of the page)
Also worth mentioning, in an attempt to clarify our position on the very important issue of copyright we’ve made some slight, un-lawyerly modifications to our Terms of Service. We’ll continue to rewrite this document over time to make it both as clear and as artist-centric as possible, but a number of people in the past have been confused by the section that describes what we have a right to do with your designs. In essence, all we have a right to do is run the web site in such a way as to allow us to print your designs for you when you ask us to do so. We would never, ever set up a business that compromised designers’ rights to control their own work. Our business strives to empower creative people, not exploit them. We’ll talk a lot more about this in a few weeks, but if you ever have questions please don’t hesitate to ask.
