Thanks for participating in the fabric-custom.com marketplace. Good luck!about: digital printing solutions.

A fabric, wallpaper or decal design can be a digital photograph, a scan of some artwork, or a design created in a graphics program such as Photoshop or Illustrator . 1200x1200 pixels photos and Photoshop to see Width height in 40 cm or more photos. The key element is that it has to be a piece of artwork in digital format.

To get your design to print at the size you want, your file just has to have the right number of dots. As an example, if you want a final image with no repeats that fills one yard of quilting weight fabric (42 inches by 36 inches), we just need to do the math: 42 inches * 150 dots per inch is 6300 dots. 36 inches * 150 = 5400 dots. These 'dots' are often called 'pixels', which is just a geeky shortening of the phrase 'picture elements'. So a short way to say this is 6300x5400 pixels. Doing the same math for a fat quarter yields 3150x2700 pixels. An 8"x8" swatch is 1200x1200 pixels.
 
If your file doesn't have enough pixels and you really want a particular size, you need to make a new file! Here's how
If the image is a digital photograph, your best bet is to find out what resolution your camera is, and re-take the image with a higher resolution camera. As a rule of thumb, a 3 megapixel camera will nicely fill an 8"x8" swatch, and a 10 megapixel camera will create enough dots to fill an 18"x21" fat quarter. A full yard requires 40 megapixels, which at this point is only available in very high end professional cameras
If your image is a scan of original artwork or a photograph that you still have in your possession, then re-scanning it at a higher resolution will solve your problem. Typically scanners have a range of scanning resolutions starting at 150 dpi and escalating to 300, 600, 1200, and 2400. As a rule of thumb, a standard sheet of paper in landscape (11"x8.5") scanned at 300 dpi will fill a fat quarter. The same sheet scanned at 600 dpi will fill a yard.
 
How will my design repeat?
 Your design can be centered on fabric or decals. We will not alter the size or dimensions of the design. If the size of the design does not match the size of product, the space around the edge of the design will be left unprinted.
Basic Repeat: We will tile your design from the lower left corner up and to the right to fill the available space of your order. If you upload an image larger than the area then we will crop it back towards the lower left corner (e.g. the top and/or right sides will be cropped).  The design will not be stretched or changed in its dimensions.    If you are ordering a swatch sized piece for a large design, you might consider reducing the size of the design to fit into the swatch
Half-Drop Repeat: This is like the basic repeat, except the design is repeated with a half-step vertically as you move to the right. 
Half-Brick Repeat: This is also a staggered repeat, but the design shifts half-step horizontally to the right as you move upwards... like bricks, hence the name.
Mirror Repeat: This layout tool creates designs without obvious seams by mirroring your original design so that it folds out into four sections with every edge pixel identical to its immediate neighbor. Try it out on photographs and scanned designs that have irregular edges that will not repeat smoothly and may otherwise give you obvious tiling effect.
 
How can I make sure my fabric, wallpaper and decals are the color I want?
With the water-based pigments we use, you can achieve millions of beautiful colors. Because of our digital process, your prints will be consistent from order to order and there are no caps on how many colors you can use. For the best results,please use the cmyk color space from the beginning of the design process to the end. We can also accept LAB and RGB color spaces. Colors display differently monitor to monitor and can print differently depending on the product. Ordering a test swatch before placing a large order will help you determine whether your colors will print as you expect them to.
 
Keep in mind that your colors may look different depending on the product. Typically, designs printed on wallpaper and decals are more vivid because of the paper's opacity than designs printed on fabric. In regards to fabric, you can expect to see slightly different results depending on the weight of the fabric you choose. For example, Heavy Cotton Twill is a thick fabric, so it can hold more pigment, while the Voile is thin and can absorb a smaller amount of pigment.
 
General Tips for Color on Fabric
Black stripes on a dark grey background are a bad idea (as are forest green stripes on an emerald green background, midnight blue stripes on a dark royal blue background, etc) Dark colors that are similar to each other may blend together when printed without enough contrast. More generally, highly saturated dark colors printed in large, solid areas don't have the visual impact they do on your monitor because pigment inks tend to render saturated colors a bit different than you might expect. Additionally, please note that our pigment inks aren’t capable of rendering a true, rich, saturated black, and this limitation will probably be noticeable in designs that use large fields of black. To avoid your black looking noticeably dark charcoal gray, it’s best to use black in small amounts, with a lot of lighter colors. We only print on white fabric (there are no white inks), so there's no way to start with dark fabric and create a lighter colored design on top of it.
 
Good contrasts on fine details print well. The resolution possible with digital printing on textiles is actually better than screen-printed textiles, so you can do amazing work with details in your designs as long as the contrast is good. Dark colors work well as foreground and detail elements although again, they may print somewhat lighter than they look on your monitor.
 
If you're not sure how something is going to look, it's a good idea to order a test swatch before purchasing yardage. There are lots of fancy tools for managing color, but in the end, the only way to judge whether your colors will look as you expect them to when printed is by holding the printed sample in your hands. Most people are happy with how their designs turn out, but testing first is a really good idea, and it’s absolutely essential if getting the colors just so is intrinsic to your goal.
You can preview your final print by using  Photoshop Print with Preview,  not exactly replicate a printed piece of fabric, but it comes pretty close.

How can I make sure my fabric, wallpaper and wall decals are the color I want?

With the water-based inks we use, you can achieve millions of beautiful colors. Because of our digital process, your prints will be consistent from order to order and there are no caps on how many colors you can use. For the best results,  please use the CMYK color space from the beginning of the design process to the end. We can also accept LAB and RGB color spaces. Colors display differently monitor to monitor and can print differently depending on the product. Ordering a test swatch before placing a large order will help you determine whether your colors will print as you expect them to.

Keep in mind that your colors may look different depending on the product. Typically, designs printed on wallpaper and wall decals are more vivid because of the paper's opacity than designs printed on fabric. In regards to fabric, you can expect to see slightly different results depending on the weight of the fabric you choose. For example, Heavy Cotton Twill is a thick fabric, so it can hold more ink, while the Voile is thin and can absorb a smaller amount of ink.

WE delivers a printing service that is automated from start to finish. That means that we print what you upload without changing your file in any way or trying to guess what you might have wanted. Color rendering and every other part of printing is handled by our software, and we don't tweak files or try to match specific colors you specify. This makes WE different from other print services in a couple of ways: 1) It makes custom fabric, wallpaper and wall decals fast and affordable (when it used to be rare and expensive), and 2) It puts full control of the process of creating custom printed products into your hands.

But... it also means that we're not checking every file to prevent mistakes from happening. If there's an accidental line of blank pixels in your file and you order the design without noticing the line, that line will show up in your print. If the colors on your monitor don't print the way you expect, there's no way for us to know what colors you’re seeing on your screen and let you know they don’t match beforehand. We always do our best to make sure our customers are happy, but we also do our best to be as transparent as possible about the limitations, as well as the advantages, of using our process. We are glad you are here and we want to make everything about our community and our product fun and satisfying. If you ever have any questions or suggestions, please don't hesitate to email WE .

Testing My Design

Why should I test my design before ordering? Colors can look very different on fabric than they do on your computer monitor. Light goes through and bounces off of color on fabric. Colored light comes out of a screen. Fabric has gossamer qualities: it's 3-D and it folds and drapes, but screens don't. Fundamentally different! Our digital printers and inks often print saturated colors and true blacks lighter than you might expect on our fabrics with natural fibers. You may need to test different saturation levels or modify your design. Your chosen colors might "shift" to colors you weren't expecting if they are out-of-gamut for our printers.

Because our fabrics have different white points, colors will shift brighter or darker based on your fabric choice. Test swatches are cheap and fast. There's simply no substitute for determining how a design will print than having the design printed!
