How to create your own scarf design

How to create your own scarf design

Seeing your own design turned into scarf is a real buzz. Did you know we can custom print your designs make them into scarves or furoshiki?  

Your own patterns are printed onto a premium, lightweight cotton, neatly finished with a double fold hem. Ideal for small businesses; whether you're an artist or designer looking to extend your product range, corporate gifting and events, simply want a unique, sustainable product for resale, or for a gift wrapping service.

If you're new to it, don't worry, it's actually really simple, we just need a high res file of your design (eg. PDF) and we'll do the rest, but below are a few hints and tips to get you started:

  1. Your printed scarves will be a lot bigger than most monitors and laptop screens, so zoom in to check for errors and that your design is sharp at full size.

  2. Scarves are digitally printed (much like your home inkjet printer), so there's no limit to the number of colours you can use. But monitor settings mean the colours you see on your screen may be slightly different to your printed scarf. To minimise this convert your design into CMYK before sending, but don't worry too much if you can't. Either way we'll colour match as closely as possible.

  3. Creating a design takes time. If your design wasn't created by you, make sure you have copywrite permission to use it.

  4. We print on premium, fine, lightweight cotton. That's perfect for scarves and means it's easy to knot and tie for furoshiki. However like any lightweight fabric it can appear sheer. That's a lovely effect if you intend to use them as scarves. But if you're designing fabric gift wraps, using darker backgrounds and filling large 'negative spaces' with a pattern will make your scarf more opaque.

  5. You want your scarf to be reused. So when it comes to branding - less can be more. A subtle, long lasting reminder is ideal
