I make graphics for web sites and I was wondering if there was a place where I give them the picture of the graphic I want and they could print it onto fabric for me.

I want this for personal use and also for resale purposes.

check out www.cafepress.com

you upload the pic/graphic you want and then they can put it on a t-shirt or tons of other things.  It's free to set up, but of course you have to buy the items.

hope that helps!

Thanks for the info.

Actually, I'm trying to get it to print on fabric that comes in 1 yard or more. Like an actual fabric that I can use to make handbags and so on.

I can't think of any of the names of these companies, although, I do know they exist.  If you have a JoAnns near you, I would go check the selvages of printed cotton fabrics for company names.  Do a little research online and see if they'll do samples for you and how much it would cost.

I did an internship at a drum company (percussion) and they had custom printed fabric to cover the drum bodies with.  I even visited this fabric company (in Burbank, CA), but for the life of me, can't remember the name.

Hope that helped a little Huh

if you didn't mind doing a little work, you could try screenprinting it.  do a search on here for "print gocco" or even just "gocco".  it's a small desktop screenprinting setup that you could use to stamp a design onto fabric.

that reminds me: joann will take competitor coupons.  i didn't know that before i worked there, and i'm not much of a coupon cutter, but you can get the 40% mailer from joann, and then hobby lobby and michael's both also have coupons, so you could definitely double or triple your coupons for the month.
