Custom Fabric printing

I have literally spent over seven months trying to find the perfect fabric for my upcoming May Wedding. I was looking for a geometric pattern in light yellow and gray. I wanted to use the fabric for the photo booth, lounge cushions and small details around the reception. I had just about given up until I found custom fabric printing. I had heard about it in a magazine and ruled it out expecting it to be super expensive. After visiting and seeing how affordable, easy and fun it is, I will definitely be purchasing some fabric for the wedding. There are several companies and websites that allow for custom fabric design but I particularly liked because they have templates to choose from and you can even have them create your project for you; lampshade, pillow, etc.

It's simple, you go to fabric creation and you get to choose from hundreds of templates; then you have five options for the size of the pattern, then you get to pick from a very large variety of colors. Some other websites only had one yellow, one blue, etc. It's about $18 a yard which, after doing a lot of research, I think it's worth $18. I found fabric as high as $200 a yard in fabric stores.

There are other websites that allow you to upload a photo or graphic to create custom fabric, I am also very intrigued by this but don't know that I currently need to go that custom for my wedding fabric. I hope to order mine soon and will report that outcome.

Hi Yellie!

I am so glad you found us and that you enjoyed designing a fabric. One of the things that makes us really different is the quality of our fabric is really nice - one magazine editor said recently that it was "much more beautiful than expected". The other really cool thing is that up-and-coming and established designers contribute patterns to us nearly every week, so you have the opportunity to have fabric from fabulous designers that you know will be awesome.

I did want to point out one thing though - our fabric is $6 per SQUARE foot - which is more than $18 a yard. We will be offering it by the yard soon, but by offering it by the foot, you can get exactly the dimensions you need (like long and skinny for a table runner, for example) without any waste.

Thanks for writing about us and even though we are more expensive than you had originally thought, we hope that you will work with us for your wedding.

Congratulations on your wedding soon!
