I’m having so much fun designing prints in Inkscape (open source design software for those of you who don’t want to fork over the big bucks for Photoshop) to print up on Spoonflower. I can’t wait to make some baby pants with this octopus print (below).
One of the issues I’m having though can be seen in the picture…color problems. The colors not only fade substantially when printed, but they shift as well (top is computer printout, bottom is actual fabric swatch). And for someone like me who really has absolutely no computer design experience, this can be a wee bit frustrating.
Here’s a bird swatch based on my old header. The turquoise/aqua looks hideous. The shade reminds me of really faded medical scrubs. Not a good thing.
I love seeing how other people’s designs have turned out…check out Made By Petchy! She has one free for download for those of you who have Spoonflower accounts. That tree design is pure genius. So simple and yet so well-designed.
