Spoonflower Fabric Types

Spoonflower’s digital print on demand process is designed to minimize wasted fabric and ink. Only what you order is printed, so there’s no leftover printed fabric going to waste. Ink colors are mixed from 4-6 basic colors as your fabric is printed, so unlike screen printing, there’s no mixing of colors in advance of the print process. Their print process also doesn’t require any wet post-processing, so there’s no water consumed during printing. Spoonflower’s inks and dyes have been tested for harmful chemicals (like formaldehyde and lead) and are found to be safe for infant use.
Spoonflower recommends washing before use with phosphate free detergent.
