Print your own fabric on demand services compared.

screenshot of websiteThere are a number of services online that will take a digital design and print small lengths of fabric. Unlike the big print houses they provide a service for small runs and do not have expensive set up costs that make it prohibitive for a studio based textile practitioner to use.

Many people know of Spoonflower and Karma Kraft ( added later – Karma Kraft are no longer in business) but did you know about Fabric on Demand?  Each service offers a slightly different product and it is sometimes hard to compare what is what.

Kim of True Up performed a Digital Fabric Printing Experiment and sent digital files to each and compared the printed results.

You will find a comprehensive illustrated comparison of print colour and quality on her blog alongside a very useful spreadsheet of the results of her research which Kim is giving away as  PDF file on her website.
