How to design and print a drum lampshade panel
In our blog post how to design a print a drum lampshade panel, talented print designer and creative Alison Bick of Alisonbick.co.uk, shows step-by-step how to design your fabric, using Adobe Illustrator, starting with her inspiration for her design through to sending this to our Fabric Printing Service.
We love her simple but effective top tip below;
I find it really handy to print off a miniature version of the lampshade, and check the overlaps and how the design will eventually look. It is much easier than trying to visualise it from a flat template.
Not just lampshades
And our Fabric Printing Service doesn't stop at lampshades. Want to use your designs to create a range of matching cushions? We can do that too!
For cushion printing we recommend our soft velvet which gives a luxurious quality to your designs so why not consider this when creating your initial lampshade design to extend your product range, by offering matching designs.
