REQUESTS FOR LARGE VOLUME ORDERS
We love being able to fulfill your requests. Most of the time we can.
Sometimes we get inquiries for printing a file that is wider than our printers. Often the file can be modified to work just fine. Our fabric rolls are between 40 and 44 inches wide.
Frequently we get inquires for a large number of prints or scarves. We can print quite a number of un-hemmed prints in one order. However hemmed scarves can be problematic in orders over 10 or 15 due to the turnaround time. If you are looking for someone to print 100s of scarves, we just can't accommodate. Not because we wouldn't want to, but we are a small operation and can only physically hem between 10 and 12 a week from all orders that come in at any given time. Email for turn-around time before ordering more than 10 in one order.
Once in awhile someone asks to send us their own fabric to print. Sorry, can't do that as the printer requires paper-backed rolls of fabric that has been specially treated to give the wonderful colors it does.
FYI, there are companies out there that can print huge amounts of scarves in a short time, or have a different kind of printer that will print 60 or 90 inches wide. That requires a printer that uses chemical fixing of the fabric, steaming and other methods in the operation. Our printers use pigment, not harsh strong smelling chemicals. Yes, we considered adding other options, but would have to be in another facility to do that and won't be doing so at this time.
We love the intimacy of small edition prints for you fine artists and photographers. We love the chatty conversations on the phone or email and getting to know you and your art.
We don't want to lose any of that by 'going large'.
