My swatches have arrived!

When I opened the package I was squeeling with joy but upon closer inspection I have to say I was a little bit disappointed. The colors are alright for the most part some are a bit brighter than I expected them to be but that's fixable. The main reason for my discontent is that there was horizontal banding on the solid parts. I haven't heard of any complaints about this from anyone so I'm not sure if it's common or not. Anyways, I'm still waiting to hear back from Spoonflower. Here's some pics. Sorry I have bad lighting.

I printed a whole bunch of my characters to check the colorshorizontal banding issues. sighs... maybe I'm better off just screen printing.

I love your cute characters! I too was dissappointed with the colors from my Spooflower swatch.

I have seen a warning, from Spoonflower, about the banding in large solid colored areas. I think it was on their website somewhere. But I also thought I've seen it posted that they had fixed that problem.

That stinks about the banding -- I hope they make it right... your fabric really did come out fantastic besides that...

I love your stuff :)
