Bespoke Printing Options

  • Complete Design Service: Are you looking to create an original design or amend an existing print? Then our in-house design team is the perfect solution. Years of experience and expertise means our designers produce to the highest standard with polish and professionalism, translating your imaginative design concepts into beautifully printed fabric.

We pride ourselves on our product awareness and buying power, which allows us to keep prices highly competitive and guarantee satisfaction for our customers.

 


Technology

Our investment in the latest design technology and the personnel to bring out the best in that technology is at the core of our company. We use specialist CAD/CAM software to design, repeat and colour match artwork and employ sophisticated inkjet printers capable of printing small samples to thousands or metres.

 

 

   

Digital Print Advantage

Digital printing is printing without limitation: our finished fabrics are rich with design complexity and an unlimited palette of colours, unrestricted by repeat or panel size. Our investment in digital printing allows you to materialise your ideas at incredible speed and quality, incurring a fraction of the set-up costs associated with conventional contract printing. 

 

 

Bespoke Printing Q&A

 

Q. What fabrics can you print onto?

A. We can print onto a wide range of cotton, linen, viscose, and polyester fabrics. From stock we can print on the three bases shown here. Other bases are available on request. Please contact us for further clarification.

 

Q. What is the cost of printing?

A. The price depends on the fabric quality you choose, quantity ordered and ink coverage of design. Please contact us for a quotation.

 

Q. What file types can you accept?

A. As a general rule it is best to send us the file in the native format of the application it was designed in. We can accept most file formats including; TIF, PSD, AI, AVA or JPG format. Please contact us if you need further clarification.

 

Q. What resolution should I create my design in?

A. Repeating tile files should be a minimum of 180dpi and a maximum of 300dpi at the desired print size.

 

Q. How will you colour match my design?

A. For our Print from File Service we will not colour manage your files – you are in complete control of that process: transfer us your file, we then print and send you your finished fabric. We do recommend that you first order a printed sample on your chosen base cloth to ensure colours are as you want them before we print your fabric - this is one option or you can send your file and we complete your order. For our Complete Design Service, you can share a hard-copy colour example or choose from our colour palette.

 

Q. Do you have a minimum or maximum production order for bespoke printing?

A. We print from one metre to thousands of metres.

 

Q. What are your lead times?

A. Depending on the printing schedule we generally produce a sample within 3 days. For production meterage, most jobs can be completed within 2 weeks.

 

Q. Can I supply my own fabric for you to print on?

A. Yes - subject to surcharge and certain terms/conditions. We will also test your fabric for print suitability.

 

Q. How can I send my file to you?

A. The best way to send us files is through WeTransfer or similar online file transfer service. These are typically free and very easy to use.
