About Our Products
FABRIC IS OUR PASSION!
We love fluff and cuddlies, smooth and silkies, soft and vibrants. We love fabric. We love unique custom fabrics of all types. Since 2015, we've been offering only the best quality fabrics in new, innovative designs for all your creative projects.
Each fabric base prints differently and is unique in it's characteristics. To show you the variations, we've compiled this list with specs, suggested uses and photos. These photos are raw unaltered photos; each taken under the same lighting with the same camera.

This chenille-like knit fabric is a favorite for children and adults alike. Minky is ideal for blankets, lounge wear, quilt backings, baby accessories, pillows,and winter accessories such as hats and scarves. Because design details may be lost in the piles, designs printed on DCM will be enlarged by approximately 2 inches.
100% polyester, 270gsm, 54-56" width
Note: Due to the stretchy nature of the fabric and small production run, circular designs may not print completely round. Printed color and crispness of designs will also vary between fabric bases. PK/Swim and DBPs will print the most vibrant colors. PULs generally result in slightly darker, saturated colors. French terry and minkies result in more muted tones with softened lines.
Common, minor printing flaws are not disclosed and compensated as they are considered a normal part of a small-production, custom digital printing process. Minor flaws are defined as follows:
- Imperfections of any size found within 6 inches of the selvage
- Imperfections (white dot, mark, uneven color/print) smaller than the size of a dime (18mm)
- Heathering (tiny white or speckle discoloration)
- Color variations of 10-15% from strike off samples of the same fabric. Please note that minky colors are more muted than jersey knit colors and that colors seen on your screen may also vary from the actual fabric colors.
