Small Batch Printing
Interested in getting some designs printed on fabric? We can help!
What you need to know BEFORE getting started.
1) Your design.
Shear Perfection Fabric does NOT currently offer design services - you must be submitting a COMPLETE file - ready for printing.
Designs must be 300 DPI
* When you buy a file - this information is generally stated in the listing - for example from this ETSY seller ....
You must have rights or permission (license) to print copyrighted, trademarked, or otherwise protected material per our Terms of Service and relevant law. Most design files will say in the listing if it includes a "License for personal use" or what other limitations you have when using their art.
We do not accept content that references or is "inspired" by celebrities, fictional characters, businesses, companies, sports teams, tv shows, and the like.
We will not print political, offensive or culturally inappropriate designs and reserve the right to decline ANY design we are unsure of or unqualified to assess.
Important information to look for BEFORE purchasing your design file:
Is the design " Seamless" or "Tileable" - this means that the designs can be placed side by side row by row and it will be repeated without a flaw in the design.
Most designs will say this in the description.
If you would like to check your file quickly there are free sites such as these that will give you a quick view of your file. See examples below.
Great for desktop use
Mobile and Desktop Friendly
This file is seamless - it repeats cleanly so you can not see within the edges where it starts and ends
This file is NOT seamless - You can see a glitch in the design where it is starting over.
* Ensure your design is seamless - Shear Perfection Fabric is not responsible for any defects in your provided design.
2) Provide us with the scale you would like your design printed.
Scale can be provided by using one of the elements or by the total file size ( see examples below)
In this example you could say " I would like each flower to be 2 inches tall"
In this example you could say " I would like the file to be printed at 12 inches x 12 inches "
* Please note - scale can vary about 5% depending on the design.
Example of some scale Sizes
3) Choose a " Base Fabric " for your design to be printed on. Our list of fabrics will expand, but currently available is :
**Colors will print more vibrant on Polyester bases than cotton. If you are ordering multiple bases - you need to note that colors WILL be different between bases.
Orders can be placed directly on our Website using this listing
Once you have submitted your order - please email your file to email@example.com . You will receive a confirmation of receipt within 2 business days.
Custom printed fabric is sold in 1 Meter intervals - minimum per print is 1 meter purchase.
If in error less than your requested amount arrives we will contact you and discount the yardage according to the shortage, or reorder you additional if it is less than you need for your project.
If we have extra we reserve the right to sell the extra or use it for samples etc.
If you are ordering multiple files - please add them to your cart separately and SPECIFY FILE NAME AND SIZE in the scale section as shown here .....
In your Cart you will then be able to see each file, base, scale and amount ordered separately.
You are welcome to use any of our provided shipping options for your purchase including cubbies. You may combine with instock items but the instock items will only ship together with your printing order when it arrives.
* You will be notified if there is a delay and we expect it to be later than 6 weeks. Shipping and customs clearance are out of our control and refunds will not be given for shipping or customs delays. We will however be actively keeping you in the loop on progress, and you will be able to see the status of " Small Batch printing for ex. " April Batch", in our weekly updates every Thursday. Weekly updates are provided on Facebook as well as on the website.
6) Turn Around time
The average Turn around time is 4-6 weeks for printing from the time we order to the time it arrives to the shop for processing and checking.
Batch orders are placed the end of each month at a minimum - they may be placed more often if we are ordering.
Feb Batch - ordered Feb 28
March Batch - to be ordered March 27th
April Batch - to be ordered April 30th
May Batch - to be ordered May 28th
*** to reiterate - there will often be additional orders placed in addition to these batches so if you have your order in sooner - it may be ordered in an earlier batch.
If your print is flawed when it arrives to the shop to be checked we will reach out to you to come to a resolution such as a reprint, discount or refund.
