Custom Fabric Printing in the UK and EU (market research)

Posted with permission of  batchix 

I'm trying to set up a UK based digital textile printing company (I'd also be able to have fabrics delivered to people within the EU) similar to companies like Spoonflower and Fabric on Demand.
I'm currently in the process of applying for business loans and start up grants, but I need some market research to say weather or not people would be interested in a service like that on this side of the world (one of my main reasons for wanting to set this up in the first place is to minimise the postage and possible customs fees people in the EU currently have to pay to order custom fabrics).
I figured this might be of some interest to members of bjd_sew who might want to have their own designs printed onto fabric to make things for their ball jointed dolls (one idea I thought of was those of you who like to twin outfits with your doll could reproduce a print on something already have but scaled smaller for your doll).

I have a small survey (shouldn't take you more than five minutes to complete) which can be found here

So as not to clutter up bjd_sew, I won't be posting updates here, however if you want to stay informed I will be posting updates to my blog which can be found here (this is my personal blog so not all updates are business related)

Thanks to anybody who takes my survey, and if anybody has any questions please feel free to ask :)

Also I'm cross posting this to a few other communities including so I'm really sorry if you see this a bunch of times, I'm trying to get word out but not spam everybody at the same time.
