Designing fabric, wallpaper and gift wrap used to be the stuff of dreams. Only a few select creatives got to do it and it required formal training and significant financial investment. But times have changed and today anyone with a computer, Internet connection, and idea can upload a file and order their own fabric or paper, printed affordably one yard or more at a time. At the forefront of this revolutionary DIY movement is Spoonflower, a North Carolina startup that produces designs for hundreds of thousands of users worldwide—24 hours a day/seven days a week to keep up with demand. With step-by-step tutorials and projects that span a wide spectrum of skills, The Spoonflower Handbook is written for new and experienced users of this print-on-demand technology. Covering everything from equipment to software to working with photos, scans, repeats, vector files and more, it is an essential guide to a booming new creative outlet.
