How can I call and speak to customer support?
We prefer to communicate with customers via email. We do not have a support phone line. This is such a small business that we have to keep it simple. Please email us with your questions and concerns and we will be sure to get back to you promptly. If you must talk to someone, please send an email and we will contact you via phone when we are available. Email us at: [email protected]
What is “digital textile printing”?
The best way to explain “digital textile printing” is to think of a large custom inkjet printer with a special fabric handling system loaded with high-tech textile inks printing designs on white cotton fabric. Digital designs are sent to the printer from a computer, and the designs are replicated with special ink onto the fabric.
What are the advantages of “digital textile printing”?
Because fabrics are printed on-demand with digital technology, we can print small amounts (no minimums) for our customers. We can also personalize fabric products with names and logos. This would be unheard of in traditional fabric silk screening methods or production.
What type of fabric does Modern Yardage use?
We offer our products on 100% cotton pre-shrunk high quality quilting-weight fabric. Our yardage is 56" wide, unlike traditionally offered 44" quilting fabric.
What are the washing instructions for Modern Yardage fabric?
We recommend washing the fabric separately on a gentle cycle in cold water. Hang to dry or tumble dry on low heat.
Will Modern Yardage fabrics stand the test of time?
While some fading should be expected after washing fabrics dyed with pigment inks, our fabric has good wash and crock fastness. If wash instructions are not followed, fading may be more apparent, especially on darker colors.
How long will it take to get my order?
Because we have orders printed “on demand” it takes some time print and fulfill orders. Generally, orders are shipped within a week but during busy times, like the holidays, it could be longer.
Do you sell wholesale?
We do not sell yardage wholesale. We only sell quilt labels and some panels at wholesale pricing to shops. For more information, please contact us at [email protected]
What is a Fat Quarter?
A fat quarter is a one-fourth of a yard of fabric cut 18" x 22" rather than the standard 9" x 42" cut.
