If you are a pattern designer, there seems to be two great spots to join to get your designs noticed, Spoonflower.com and PatternBank.com. I am more familiar with Spoonflower though I have been looking into Patternbank as well for new options. What can I tell you about both right now? What I know! Of course. Spoonflower is similar to PatternBank in the sense that both sell pattern and textile designs. Both function as print-on-demand services that sends the final printed product to the customer. However, with Spoonflower, unlike PatternBank, anyone can start selling designs. You need not worry about being accepted or declined. I know of two great books filled with helpful information published by Spoonflower. They are: 1.The Spoonflower Quick-sew Project Book, and 2.The Spoonflower HandBook (30 Projects). I hope this helps in getting to know some sites to show your designs as new Surface Pattern Designers.
