As a verified seller in the Spoonflower Marketplace, you can request that rescaled versions of previously approved designs be made available for sale automatically. Rotated versions of identical designs are also eligible for this courtesy.

Designs with visual or elemental alterations, or different colorways, are not available for this courtesy. This is only to adapt scale or orientation from an already approved pattern.

We offer rescale requests to help artists quickly fulfill inquiries for speciality sizes from customers. However, sometimes designers will upload additional versions of their designs to the Marketplace preemptively. We will happily oblige in this practice, but please know:

  • Experience shows that more designs may not mean more sales. Too many similar designs in your Library will make it difficult for customers to see your wider range of work. This might also confuse customers into ordering an incorrect scale when sampling or reordering. This may result in lost commissions due to order cancellations and returns that don't become reorders.
  • Adding designs is a manual process and takes additional time. Please limit rescale requests to only 10 total new design IDs per week.

 

How to Submit Rescale Requests

  1. Upload the resized version(s) of the proofed design to your shop - or - upload the same design to your Design Library and use the "Smaller" or "Change DPI" functions before clicking "Save This Layout." 
  2. Give this new design version a clear, distinctive Design Name that will help customers differentiate it from the original design. For example, adding size descriptors - such as 'mini', 'medium,' or 'extra large scale' - after the original name works well. However, remember that size is a relative concept, especially on any sort of sized screen. Therefore, offering actual dimensions - such '4-inch repeat' or '12-inch version' - might be even better.
  3. IMPORTANT: If you plan to sell these scaled versions on wallpaper, please check the repeat and design dimensions through the wallpaper tab. Wallpaper must print seamlessly across 24 inches and sometimes two different fabric designs - one titled "small" and another "medium" - may actually print at the same size on wallpaper. This can confuse customers who want to sample different sizes and lead to frustration and lost sales. 
  4. Once each design is saved in your Design Library, Contact Us to submit your request for the designs to be approved for sale. Make sure to use the email address associated with your account and follow the format below so that your request can be processed efficiently. 

First list the Approved Design Name and note it as already approved:

< include the direct URL design link to this design >

List the New Scale Design Name(s):

< include direct URL design link to the newly scaled option >

 

Again, this is a manual verification process that can take a bit of time to complete. We request that you send no more than 10 Design rescale requests each week. Once the designs are approved, you will receive an email with final instructions from us explaining what you need to do to complete the process.
