fabric printing



Trying to find a place to print my own fabric but it's just so terribily hard! All the website that came out from Goggle are either for promotional printing or for t-shirt printing. I don't know how to make screen print and I don't think I am in a very good position to make it coz my place is very small with carpet. The stamp printed fabrics arn't too bad but I want them to look better. Why is it so hard to find somewhere to print?

you could try asking lara cameron from kirinote - she gets her fabric printed in melbourne.
I really like your circle designs.

International shipping would probably make this too expensive for you, but you might want to take a look at Spoonflower: http://www.spoonflower.com

Good luck finding somewhere!

Oh thank you very much for that! They have beautiful fabrics! That's the thing! I don't know why it's easier to find the custom print fabric service in US than in Australia... and there are more craft supplies in US as well!! it's such a sad thing to know....

i understand! it really sucks how australia doesnt have that many services ~ or we just cant find it??

but ones that i happen to find a while ago.. are like printed by the roll!

i'm also considering design and printing my own fabric too!

i'm liking the peachy pink prints btw!

I found a fabric printer! They said it's about $400 to set up a single color screen and about $10 per meter print. A roll is 60m so if you print a whole roll, that would cost about $16 per meter. Not too bad but I am not sure if I want to do it as I am not very confidence with my designs... I'll wait until I get the best design..hahah
