We accept files up to 4MB.
We recommend file dimensions being between 400 - 600 pixels at it’s longest dimension.
When you upload your artwork it’s transformed into fabric appliqué. We make the outline of your artwork into a stencil that can be used to cut out the fabric applique. Choose a fabric that best matches your artwork.
Think of artwork for appliqué as a stencil or a silhouette. There are a few things to keep in mind for appliqué artwork:
Use any font in your favorite word processor. Make sure you use a large font size and save. Then, upload your file as artwork.
There is no perfect answer, but a couple simple rules can help you find a great match for your artwork.
For simple artwork shapes explore more intricate fabric patterns.
For complex artwork shapes, keep the fabric pattern simple, like a solid color.
