Printed fabrics are a smart choice for any fabric designer or retailer looking to expand their product offerings without sacrificing design quality.
A little while ago, I came across an image in a magazine that caught my eye and made me think: “This would make a great fabric design!” I loved the concept and instantly started thinking about how I might make it happen. Here’s why you should print fabric designs too!
As a graphic designer, I get asked about printing fabrics on a daily basis. I also hear about how hard it is to find great, affordable options in the industry. But that’s about to change. Here are four reasons why you should consider fabric as a print medium.
- Create a Professional Image
Here is the first example of how to make your own print fabric pattern. You have to create your own pattern if you want it to be unique. Just imagine this fabric print pattern: How do you like this design? Now you can create your own beautiful pattern design.
- Use a Custom Printing Process
Many customers don’t realize that there are more than a handful of ways to print products in their store. Not only that, but the cost per product to print varies widely depending on the method. Print fabric is the cheapest method and works best with smaller prints or when a high quantity of a single design is needed. It also offers a wide variety of sizes and options, such as spot colors.
- Increase Profits
In order to increase profits of printing fabric, you need to consider the following steps to increase your business efficiency. 1) Choosing a fabric which can withstand the wear and tear. 2) Setting the production volume according to the demand. 3) Hiring skilled workers who have experience in the industry. 4) Using innovative ideas in the design of the clothes and 5) Using good quality printing material.
- Make Your Customers Feel Good
One thing we’ve learned as e-commerce marketers over the past few years is that people buy based on emotion, not logic. If you want to sell more, you need to make customers feel good about themselves. A lot of marketers make the mistake of assuming that everyone is a rational decision maker. But in reality, people are emotional beings.
In conclusion, you can still create a business that works with your lifestyle and schedule, and does the things that you love, while helping others through the process. The truth is, it’s not really possible to stop working entirely. Even when you quit your day job, you can always be doing something—you just have to find what you love and make a living from that.
