TxWes Makers Lab: Section 2: Design Spot

The Design Spot

Design Spot

The Design Spot focuses on fabric and fiber arts design through the use of the following:

  • paper and vinyl die cutting
  • a direct-to-garment printer
  • heat press.
Here an individual has the freedom to design materials for marketing, outreach, and artistic expression. With only a digital image file, one can print decals for home décor, clothing, and accessories. The direct-to-garment printer allows for the printing of designs directly onto fabric without the harsh fumes and bulky equipment necessary in traditional screen printing. A designer can test print an image onto fabric easily and assess for quality control without the exorbitant cost of having to use an outside vendor.
