Tips on Designing a Tie Pattern

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

I wanted to inquire about the forum's experiences, thoughts and ideas on designing my own patterns for ties.

 

I have a few prints in mind that are of cultural value that I believe are refined and tasteful to be worn in a professional setting, yet individualistic to express myself. I thought I could make some for myself and if it is successful, I could expand it into a small venture. 

 

Has someone undertaken a similar venture before? Does anyone have experience designing and printing a fabric on silk or linen for example.

remember
ties are cut on the bias.

there are plenty of places that will digitally print for you.
spoonflower could be one of the easier ones to deal with.

they have PFP fabric.(prepared for Printing)

pick your fabric and send them your CAD file
If you plan to silk screen yourself, it is a much different process.

No I think silk screening is a tad too advanced for what I want to try...perhaps as the idea is refined.

 

What is the level of silk quality I can expect with Spoonflower?

 

Thanks for reminding me that ties are cut on the bias. I guess this entails that the pattern be printed diagonally so that the print would align correctly on the tie?
