Spoonflower is an online site offering “custom printed fabric and more,” but I must confess – I have never ordered any fabric from this company.

To get a better sense of Spoonflower’s products, I ordered the Fabric Sample Pack for $3, so I’d at least have some idea of the quality.
According to Spoonflower, it offers 500,000+ designs, and uses eco-conscious fabrics and papers.
You can upload your own custom designs, and sell them as a designer.
While I think this is awesome, the price is the factor stopping me from being a customer.
Even when there’s a sale or promotion, the rates for the various fabric substrates are much higher than standard commercially available fabric.
I have checked out the designs and projects, and there are amazing ones on the site – but I’ve never been in a situation where I absolutely need a specific print. When I have wanted to use one, it’s been a designer for a traditional fabric manufacturer like Cotton + Steel, Robert Kaufman, Michael Miller or Riley Blake.
While I realize the prices are probably great for custom printed fabric, they are not comparable to commercial fabric – especially when it’s on sale.
Yes, it is great that the company is eco-friendly, but I also am very price conscious as well.
So I wanna toss this out to you – have you ordered from Spoonflower before? Why or why not?
Are you a Spoonflower designer? What have your experiences with the company been like?
This is NOT meant to be a negative video about Spoonflower at all, I’m just curious to see what other opinions are out there about the company.
I’d love to TRY Spoonflower fabric, but haven’t had a reason to yet.
