Tim, Once you have an account, you can print as many designs on as much fabric as you like. The designs you upload to Spoonflower are private unless you choose to make them public. We will only print your design when you order it. The only other printing we might do would be to test the printer settings, colors, etc. We don't make any other use of anyone's designs. Hope that helps! -Stephen

Nico, I'm assuming you uploaded a TIF in LAB profile? If so, you (and everyone) should be aware that the Spoonflower thumbnail displays even a TIF in Lab format as a JPG which, in the RGB environment of a web page, can make the colors wonky. But the TIF you upload is the same file we'll send to the printer, so the colors you set up there will be the colors we print... or try to print. As most people are aware, an output device (in this case a textile printer) matches the colors in a file to the best of its ability-- but imperfectly. This can be dramatic in some cases -- as for example with very saturated colors that the printer can't approximate well at all -- and virtually imperceptible in others. If you are cautious (and patient) you might print a swatch first to see how the colors reproduce.

Denise, We're still figuring out what kinds of efficiencies we can wring out of the production process, but eventually yes we would love to offer a range of fabrics including at least one at a price below $18.

That's a perfectly reasonable question, but at this point all files passed to the textile printer are first converted into TIF format so starting with a vector image is not going to improve the quality of the final product at all. You'd do best to use Illustrator to generate an optimized TIF and upload that directly to the site.

Erin, eventually you will have the option to make your designs available for sale. Right now you could set up another site to sell your design using Google checkout or Paypal or some other easy-to-implement payment system, then when someone buys the design on the other you can place an order on Spoonflower and have it shipped to that person.

Two things about the Cottonwood site: 1) I notice that they seem to be using Salesforce.com to manage their mailing list. Is there a Typepad widget for mailing lists? If not, why? 2) The Stat Counter Typelist on their right column seems to be broken, which brings up what I have found to be the only real check on my various ambitions to use Typepad as a site manager rather than simply a blog -- the way Typelists are structured is too limiting.
