ok. i'm confuse about something. asking here is like asking to fractalcamo? patterns posted here are available at fractalcamo or just the design. and also patterncrew that look like only make the design but they dont print itself. when hit the link for lexigraphics they take you to fractalcamo is all this related? hydrodigitalfilms is also related to all this? because they have the same options just cheaper.

that coupon 2kforum40 what discount apply.

im looking to make some customs film 4x4 related and i want stick to the forum sponsor but is a lil confusing.

    Pattern crew designs the images. Fractalcamo and hydrodigital are custom printers that will print pattern crew designs

    Thank you @DeviousDips that is correct! PatternCrew just creates patterns that might interest the hydrographic market and sells them to custom film printers to print for you.

    @dodevil. You can take pattern crew designs to any of the custom printers. The list that he posted is all the ones that will print the designs. Big Brain uses a different custom film than fractalcamo so if you are use to a custom film and it works I would stick with that company

    Generally, the Custom film printers will buy the pattern(s) from PatternCrew that they can sell to many customers and amortize the cost over many future sales... But if you need a special exclusive pattern they will either create it for you at a nominal fee or hire Pattern Crew to make it for them if it gets too complicated. Or even better, you can create a seamless pattern yourself and send it to them to print! Here's some youtube videos on making seamless patterns yourself... SEAMLESS Patterns Videos

    PatternCrew makes the sample patterns available to printers and film suppliers to post on their websites to show their potential customers the wide possibilities that aren't always available form the preprinted market. If a customer of hydrographic dipping can't find just what they are looking for they may just look for other decoration methodologies and leave the little guy high and dry (read broke and starving) looking for the next potential customer. That's where the 7000 patterns on the PatternCrew website fill the gap.

    So technically we can ge the same design from pattercrew and print it over film for hydrographics and also get that printed over wrap vinyl for hood or big parts? That open a whole new market for me People always ask for the hood.
  • dodevildodevil Posts: 77Member
    When you say printer can get the pattern is because they dont sell it to the public?
  • studebakerstudebaker Posts: 3,078Member, Business Ninja ✭✭✭✭✭
    Yes, @dodevil Anyone can buy a pattern from PatternCrew! It's very common for wrap companies to by the patterns for their projects. These patterns can be printed on fabric, upholstery vinyl, wrap vinyl, wallpaper, hydrographic film, ad nauseum...

    I say "the printer buys the pattern" to save you the time and expense. Sure you can buy a pattern or two...
