Why should I test my design before ordering?

There's simply no substitute for determining how a design will print than having the design printed!

  • Colors can look very different on fabric than on your computer monitor!
    • Colored light comes out of a screen.
    • Light goes through and bounces off of color on fabric. Fabric is 3-D and it folds and drapes.
  • Our digital printers and pigment inks often print saturated colors and true blacks lighter than you might expect. You may need to test different saturation levels or modify your design.
  • Your chosen colors might "shift" to colors you weren't expecting if they are out-of-gamut for our printers.
  • Because our fabrics have different white points, colors will shift brighter or darker based on your fabric choice.
  • Test swatches are cheap and fast.
