How it Works
Before sending us your finished design, you may want to have a chat with Anne. She has over 30 years experience in developing scarf designs for museum and heritage customers, and will be delighted to discuss your idea with you and give you tips and pointers.
Once we receive your finished artwork, we will check it over thoroughly. We will come back to you if there are any issues that we feel need resolving before we go ahead with printing your design on silk.
Things to think about when designing your scarf
Do not reproduce any part of someone else’s work unless you have permission to do so. Using your own photography or artwork is absolutely fine. Downloading and using an image from the internet is not.
When you are laying out your design, think about how the scarf is going to be worn. A square scarf is often folded diagonally and tied around the neck. This means that the most important areas of the square are the corners, as these are the parts that show. If it’s a long scarf, think how it will hang around the neck. You might want to turn your design at the half way point so that you don’t have any elements ‘upside down’ at one end.
You may want your design to run off the edges, but had you thought of including a small border, or even better, a piped coloured edge? We often frame a design with a contrast colour which really showcases the scarf’s beautiful hand rolled finish.
Perhaps you would like to add your signature in one corner? This is after all a fine art print on silk. You can supply your signature or logo as a separate file in black on white and we will then size and position it for you.
Below are a few example of scarves we have already printed for customers.
