Creating Artwork in Photoshop or another image editing software
Set up your print area according to the size of the blanket you’d like to create. If you plan on offering multiple sizes, use the largest print area to create your artwork.
Set up your guidelines in photoshop 2 inches from the border. You do this to be sure any important design elements, like text, are inside those guidelines. This area is where the threads are frayed around the edges.
Save your artwork as an RGB, JPG, or PNG file at max file size.
How the woven blankets are printed
Unlike dye-sublimation or direct-to-fabric print processes, woven throw blankets utilize solid colored yarn combined with black and white yarn to achieve the 195 possible color combinations applied for your photos or graphic designs.
For photography designs, the software and colors can create a pleasing woven rendition of most photographs. Graphic designs can be much more challenging to produce on woven blankets.
