How It Works

Each project comes to us at various stages of development. But every project has in common our ability to listen and visualize the desired outcome. After we understand your needs, we’ll provide you with a quote for creative services based on the size, number of pieces, special applications, special effects, etc. If you need help with the print files or the design, we will offer solid recommendations for artists with the experience you need.

Once your design concepts are firm and we have your print ready art, we’ll execute a release form for your final sign-off before actual fabrication. We’ll also help guide you in the shipping, mounting, staging and all other details of putting the finished pieces to work.

Getting Started
We can get the ball rolling with whatever might be your starting point – a sketch on a napkin, a storyboard, or scraps and clippings. The process begins by consulting with your Sew What? Inc. sales rep to discuss needs, timing and budget. They are well versed in all applications, techniques and sewing services, and will be happy to support you as the project moves forward.

Flogging Molly

Fabric: Heavy Knit

This is a digital print mixed media drop where all the windows were actually cut out. Under backlight the windows glowed, but as a front lit piece the gray tone palate gave a wonderful bold but multi-tasking surface (RE-touch).

Janet Jackson

Fabric: Fabric: 22oz Encore Velour with Silver Tergalet Appliqué

For Janet Jackson’s #1 Tour the concept was to travel a bi-parting black masking drape with a themed logo on the front – designed to split on center. Our in-house graphics department rendered some suggestions per the client’s ideas, and with artist approval we had a finished concept design and were ready to get sewing. The appliqué element is a soft silver hammered poly silk selected for its width allowing the appliquéd elements to be applied seamlessly.

The bi-parting traveler track used was 60 feet wide and provided as a rental by Rent What? Inc.

Little Big Town

Fabric: Direct Print on Artist Lite

Custom design, by graphic artist John Rios, combining an American theme – the eagle – with a monster graphic background for a retro feel. This backdrop was used as Kabuki and is one of three layers that dropped away during the course of the little big town show, with each Kabuki drop revealing the next backdrop design.
