    Folded or rolled fabric?

    For fabric shipped by Ripstopbythe roll, is folded acceptable or is rolled preferred? About to place the order.

    Thanks,
    Wayne

    My orders have always been folded. I would only choose a roll if it was a really big order. I've made hammocks, tarps and bug nets with folded fabric. You do have creases but you will have that soon enough once pack your completed DIY project.

    Folded is fine unless you're ordering a massive quantity.

    Perhaps for some fabrics, it may be better to go with rolled, but for most, it shouldn’t matter. Maybe for some of the heavy laminated fabrics for example, but I am no fabric expert.

    As Bill pointed out, with this being posted in the UGQ forum, the OP is most likely buying fabric that's custom printed or otherwise outside their normal range of fabric choices. UGQ requires the customer to place their own order with RBTR and have it shipped to UGQ to do the build. So I believe Bill's suggestion of asking UGQ their preference directly is the best approach. In addition to their support email, you could also call them at (517) 610-0966.

    Folded has been OK, but I've had to iron before cutting for some irregular patterns with critical dimensions.

    After emailing sales at UGQ, I got a fast reply that folded is OK.

    Thanks.
