At Spoonflower, we’re all about efficiency. Whether it’s making a conscious effort to use a printing process that doesn’t consume water and wastes less fabric than traditional methods by only printing each customer’s order or creating unique ways to help get your order out the door and onto your sewing table faster, we always have our community (that’s you!) on our mind.

It's been an exciting couple of months since our last update on what's happening in our European office in Berlin. We're still hard at work and have a lot ahead of us, but wanted to give y'all another peak into what we've accomplished and what's still to come.
Orders to Europe, Africa and the Middle East are now shipping from Berlin–yay!
Time for a Spoonflower status update: Berlin edition! If you've been curious about how things are going at the new Berlin office and want to stay in the know, read on as Spoonflower crew member Allie shares an update on the new space. Meet some new German team members, and behold the early stages of what will soon be a bustling factory cranking out custom-printed fabric, wallpaper and gift wrap for our European friends.
Decorating a space that feels totally unique and fresh can be a struggle with what’s available at local shops. Our friend and super crafty lady Lia Griffith visits the blog to share how she created a custom duvet cover using Spoonflower fabric!
Yesterday, we shared a handful of lovely little DIYs for your favorite furry friend. Today, Spoonflower crew member, Meredith, visits the blog to share a full how-to on how she created a custom dog feeding station for her newly adopted companion, Alligator! Read on as she walks you through step-by-step to create your own version.
At the beginning of the year, I became a proud parent of the sweetest four legged friend (though I may be biased), named Alligator. With her adoption quickly approaching, I couldn’t wait to get started on projects for the pup using Spoonflower. An Eco Canvas dog bed, a Cotton Poplin bandana…the projects were quite endless, but I knew not everything had to use fabric.
After a few weeks of having Alligator at home, I wanted to take her dining experience to the next level with an upcycled dog feeding station! After all, no ‘gator should be eating off the floor! With a bit of thrift shop hunting, power tool prowess, and the help of Spoonflower’s Woven Wallpaper, this ‘gator was dining in style! Follow along as I turn a regular storage cabinet into the Gator Grill!
