Tangent No. 1: What sizes should we make? I tried to find something that spoke to the standard sizes of throw and decor pillows – if any.  Not that it matters. We can do whatever we want. We could just mimic the sizes the big names are dolling out. I couldn’t really find any ‘standards’, basically this from various online sources: For decor pillows, the dimensions are: 12″ x 16″ and 12″ x 28″. You can also buy throw pillows with sizes  16″ x 16″, 17″ x 17″, 18″ x 18″, 19″ x 19″, 20″ x 20″, 12″ x 20″, 12″ x 24″, 12″ x 19″, 16″ x 24″.

I made this little graphic of  our art area for the Yudu. We’ll have, roughly, an art area of 10.5 x 13.5.  With some experimenting we could try to print on fabric twice – repeating the pattern to make the surface area larger to roughly 21 x 13.5 or 10.5 x 27. Don’t know how successful this technique would be. Joce suggested we could farm out the larger silkscreened images to your cousin in NY – or she would have suggestions as to where we could get this done.

Tangent No. 2: These made me think we could do (inflatable?) travel pillows/covers. Or simply design a line based loosely on some type of travel.

Tangent No. 3: Speaking to the 2 pillows above, I tried to do some research on garment/decor item tags/labels. I found little inspiration. Still unsure about how to address this issue. Embroidery? Additional silkscreen? Physical ribbon-like tag? How do we leave our mark after a pillow’s been sold?

Tangent No. 4: More fun findings!
