Moving printing in house reduces your cost of goods sold which in turn adds to your profit line and ROI.
Design goes from your mind to the fabric in record time. No waiting. No international shipping and customs.
By purchasing and fixing your own fabrics, you are able to ensure perfect quality and project timelines.
The less hands and eyes that touch the process, the less likely a mistake is made or a security breach occurs.
Spoonflower is an e-commerce company that makes it possible for individuals to design, print and sell their own fabric designs. They started as experts in e-commerce, but their passion for their business grew into a passion for textiles and designers to the point where they have become very good at digital textile printing. It has been amazing to see the passion and culture on which their business was founded continue through their rapid growth. We met Spoonflower prior to the launch of their business helping them understand the possibilities of digital textile printing and technology options. They are an example of how we strive to partner with companies in helping them to be successful.
