Michal, apologies for taking so long to respond. If you are saving your files as JPGs at 150dpi, which is what we recommend, then you should be able to upload fairly large patterns using files that remain under the 40MG limit.

Louise, we're still a long way from knowing when and how we'll be shipping fabric from Berlin. We're just starting to get things in motion at this point. But we will definitely keep our customers in the UK updated about plans!

Alice, we certainly aspire to be able to ease the pain associated with customs charges for Spoonflower customers in the UK, but we're still in learning and planning mode at this point about what will and won't be possible once we're up and running in Berlin. We want to make it better! And thank you, by the way, for your lovely comments about the company. -Stephen

Faux Suede and Eco Canvas are our only two fabrics heavy-duty enough to stand up to frequent use and larger upholstery applications. Because they are printed using dye sublimation, the color will stay vibrant and true over time, whereas the pigment printed fabrics (natural cottons and linens) are more delicate and less washfast. With that in mind, Linen Cotton Canvas will still do just fine for lighter weight upholstery projects such as seat cushions and pillows. Pick up a $1.00 swatch booklet to see and feel all of our options here: http://www.spoonflower.com/spoonflower_fabrics

A quilt would also be awesome, but can you imagine what an awesome conversation piece this would be at any race? We'd love to see it if you end up making one!
