PREPARE YOUR PROJECT
It can be helpful to have some technical knowledge of what and how you intend to use your artwork. If the artwork is to be printed onto to fabric it might be best to contact your printer first to find out what type of printing they are able to do, what types of fabric they can print on, what file format is best to send, and any other technical info they have about color so that you can relay this to me. Some printers only print using screens, which involves a set up fee, limitations on colors, and artwork to be prepped and color separated. Other printers use digital methods which can give significantly more freedom for color, scale, but may have limitations for types of fabric etc. It can save time and makes a huge difference if I know beforehand if only use four colors verse hundreds of colors, variation and texture.
TEXTILE DESIGN TERMS
SEAMLESS REPEAT: When a design has seamless repeat, it can be printed on endless yards of fabric without lines or interruptions in the flow of the design. Repeat size can vary and sometimes have restrictions depending on the type of printing or the width of fabric.
PLACEMENT/ENGINEERED DESIGN: A design created for a surface that does not repeat. The design is usually strategically placed on a garment and requires special printing as it’s not usually done on seamless yardage. T-shirt graphics are placement graphics.
COLORWAY: A design can be created and then come in several different color versions. Most of the time if a design is sold you are purchasing one main colorway. Additional colorways can usually be purchased for a smaller fee. For a new brand, a budget can potently be stretched by buying one-two artwork and color-ways as opposed to several different artworks.
COLOR SEPARATION: When artwork is being printed via screens it needs to be separated digitally into each color that will be a screen. The more colors, the more screens, the more costly the printing and artwork.
