To enter, simply complete this online application. We will contact you by email whether or not you are chosen as a grant recipient to let you know the status of your application.
Fabric purchased using Spoonflower Emerging Designer Grant funds may be used in combination with other fabrics in your collection or exhibition.
Yes, there are! Try these for starters:
In order to achieve expected colors we recommend ordering a swatch of your design before printing large amounts to ensure you are happy with colors, repeat, size, etc.
You retain ownership of your designs and are welcome to keep them private or sell them through Spoonflower.
Sorry, unfortunately not. We don't represent or license designers.
Upon acceptance, you will receive access to a vector version of the Spoonflower logo and guidelines on how to properly display it.
We are planning to highlight a few designer stories on our blog to let the Spoonflower community know what awesome new designers are working on, and we may contact you about being featured in a blog post. In the meantime, feel free to send us photos or links to your shows and exhibitions. We'd love to see your project!
