Are you interested in where you can start selling patterns online? 

The digital fabric printing industry has grown considerably over recent years, with many players now on the market. We have compiled a list of the best sites to explore and help you best determine where to sell your unique patterns online.

Selling surface pattern designs is exciting because a single design can sell over and over again, meaning you are only doing the hard work once and then continuing to reap the benefits over time.

Choosing among so many print-on-demand options can be a daunting task, but the best way to start is by narrowing down your needs, then selecting what will work for you.

We have broken down the print-on-demand options into three categories.

Printed Textile Design Marketplaces

Sell your designs on Spoonflower as fabric, wallpaper, and home accessories — and always own the rights to your work. The largest and most popular online market for buying and selling fabrics.

MAAKE (Formerly Fashion Formula)

NOTE: Given the recent updates and ongoing improvements to the Maake platform, I recommend holding off on uploading new pattern designs until all restructuring is complete and the platform is fully stabilized.

Sell your designs on Fashion Formula as fabric, wallpaper, gift wrap, and other products — and always own the rights to your work. Fashion Formula customers can specify the print DPI of a design, which means designers can list multiple size variations of the same design without the associated proofing costs.

WeaveUp has recruited a community of Independent Artists that feed into their curated design library with customizable designs. WeaveUp also partners with big-name brands such as Continental, JoAnn, Spring Window Fashions, Materialised, and Valley Forge Fabrics. We hesitated to add this to our list of where to sell patterns due to low commission on partner site sales and a lack of artist attribution on designs.
