    Making a printed fabric tail, where to get it printed?

    I've been looking at all the tail makers. And sadly they are either too small (I'm a plus size mer) or they are gorgeous but way out of my price range and have really bad reviews from other plus size mers. So I've been looking into possibly designing my own. But I have no clue where to get fabric printed. Any one else tried this?

    Its quite expensive to have your own printed spandex. Its cheaper to buy pre-printed fabric and make your own tail from there. There are a lot of youtube videos that show you how to sew with stretch fabric, how to add elastic and how to sew you own mermaid tail.

    Spandex World is a good place to shop.

    https://spandexworld.com/

    I've bought spandex from there before, and although the shipping to Australia was more than the actual shopping, they've got a good variety of prints to choose from.

    Thank you I understand its pricey, but no harm in getting a quote I'm also looking for scuba knit. I prefer that over spandex now. Been in spandex for 6 years

    Maybe check out Courtney Mermaid? https://www.vancouvermermaid.ca/ She makes custom printed tails, including the measurements. I'm sure she could give you a quote!
