Spoonflower Research Posters

research poster printed on fabric

Poster Printed by Spoonflower

OK, so I received the fabric research poster I had printed at Spoonflower. The quality of the printing was actually not bad, although it was a little darker than what comes off our equipment. Photos will probably be darker than you like.

Two more things. First, the satin fabric that we ordered takes a hefty crease. It ships in a plastic envelope all folded up, and the creases will need to be ironed out.

The other issue is that the fabric has not been heat cut, and it frays quite a bit. If you don’t have a hot knife, you are going to have frayed edges, which are not only unsightly, but with handling will grow. The poster is printed on 57″ wide fabric, so if you trim this down to 48″ you are going to have frayed edges all the way around.

It took them 8 days to ship this research poster. When I ordered it, they said it would take 8-10 days. It was delivered a few days later by the US Postal Service. They caution you that delivery can take as long as 2-3 weeks, and our experience with the mail confirms that. Which is why we don’t ship that way. We use Fedex, and find their on time performance to be outstanding.
