Can you even do something like that? Order a print on black velvet, that is. Or are they only ever "paintings"? Buddy has a photo he wants to know how much it'd cost if it can be done. I Google'd but didn't get great results/info. Anyone know? Thnx

If it a picture of Elvis, you can usually find those at garage/yard sales. I'm not sure where you would get anyone elses done.

High end large format printers can print on a wide variety of substrates & that should include black velvet.

The image would ideally be printed twice: the 1st time with opaque white & the 2nd with color. Careful registration would be needed, but it could definitely be done.

Good luck finding someone to do it.

I've sent off a couple of queries to printers. I thought as much about difficulty in finding someone. Thanks for the info.

Screen printing is the best way to print on a fabric, but there are a couple places that can do a digital transfer onto fabric.

A yellow pages search in your area will point you to screenprinters but you might have to source your own fabric.

There is a bar I saw a band play at in Orange County in CA a year or so ago that had all kinds of black velvet paintings all over the joint. I think 90% of them were of naked chicks. The decor was pretty cool.

Oh, and nice paintings, btw.
