Frequently Asked Questions

Do garments have to contain only Spoonflower fabrics?

Fabric purchased using Spoonflower Emerging Designer Grant funds may be used in combination with other fabrics in your collection or exhibition.


Are there any recommended tutorials or design tools to help with using your site?

Yes, there are! Try these for starters:


Do I have to order a swatch before I order my my fabric, wallpaper, or decals?

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.


Do I have to sell my designs on Spoonflower? Can they be private?

You retain ownership of your designs and are welcome to keep them private or sell them through Spoonflower.


Am I now a Spoonflower designer? As in “Kelly Wiseman designing for Spoonflower”

Sorry, unfortunately not. We don't represent or license designers.


Can I use the Spoonflower logo in my presentation / visuals?

Upon acceptance, you will receive access to a vector version of the Spoonflower logo and guidelines on how to properly display it.


My project is done. Do I need to send anything to Spoonflower?

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!
