How Your Wooden Blanket Box UK is Made
Expertly handmade by our skilled technicians, your unique wooden blanket box, UK made to order, is a statement piece of furniture. We hand carve moisture-resistant recycled wood board, which is sanded down and finished to perfection. This is spray-painted a brilliant white, to guarantee a smooth, clean surface. You'll notice 2 cut outs on either side, designed to act as handles for easy movement. The great thing about your bed box being UK made is that it's sustainable and crafted with care and precision. The exterior and interior of the lid are designed separately, allowing you to feature a different pattern or message. The suede vision fabric used is stitched together and wrapped around the lid for a flawless finish. We use nickel-plated silver strip studs to stylishly run along and cover the seam lines. All metalwork, including the hinges, are nickel-plated and rust-resistant. To make sure little fingers don't get caught, we use soft-close safety lid hinges.
The suede vision fabric we use to upholster the lid is water repellent, so to maintain the pristine surface, wipe down with a damp cloth and once dry, give it a brush to keep the fibres soft and smooth. This hero fabric is also fire rated: cushioned cover FR rated - Toy and cushion filling fibre BS5852 compliant. Filling materials(s) and covering fabric(s) meet the requirements for resistance to cigarette and match ignition in the 1988 fire safety regulations. (BS 5852 Part 1)
The exterior and interior of the lid are designed individually, so you can print totally different designs for inside and out. The suede vision fabric produces an exceptional print, with intricate details showing extremely well and colours vivid and bright. Experiment with contrasting designs, or create something more uniformed with complementary patterns for the different sides. You can, of course, print the same design, if this is the look you're going for. There's a large space to customise, and we print edge-to-edge on the suede vision fabric. Just bear in mind the silver stud strip that runs along the interior seams, as it ever so slightly runs over onto your design, but only by a few millimetres.

What's the best resolution to print in?
We print at 200dpi, which is a good combination of quality and file weight. Ideally, your image should be scaled to 100% at 200dpi, this means that no resizing of your file occurs stopping any interpolation.
Should I save my file as a TIFF or JPEG?
For multi-coloured or very detailed files we recommend using a tiff format, but they must be flattened. For simple colours and low detail files, a jpeg is fine.
Which colour model should I choose? RGB or CMYK?
We advise providing images in the RGB colour space. Specifically using the sRGB image profile, to achieve best colour results. What does this mean? In your editing software choose RGB as the working space, and assign the image profile as sRGB (full name sRGB IEC61966-2.1)
What does GSM mean?
Grams per Square Meter (GSM) is an international standard for measuring the weight of paper or fabric. GSM uses the weight of a square meter (1000 x 1000mm) as an indication of the weight and thickness of a given fabric. We class 20-100gsm as light (summer fabrics, gauzes and fine silks), 101-249 gsm as medium (most clothing fabrics) and 250+ gsm as heavy (upholstery fabrics, and other specialist fabrics).
What are the bleed areas?
When designing your product, it’s best to make sure that your image is slightly larger than needed. In printing, the extra printed image is referred to as a “Bleed Area” or margin, and it is removed from the finished piece. A bleed area acts as a buffer for slight inconsistencies in the manufacturing process. however, it’s important to fill your bleed areas completely, or you may end up with white, unprinted strips along the edge of your finished product.
Do you print on garments a customer supplies?
Unfortunately not. All our garments are printed on flat fabric and sewn into finished products, which gives a better, finished result and all-over print. We test meticulously so that we know what gets the best results on our fabrics, and our facilities cater perfectly to them. We do however print sublimation paper to order, so if you have access to a heat press you can press your fabrics or flat garments easily.
Can you Align a Pattern or design across panels of a garment?
We always strive for the greatest accuracy when printing and constructing your garments. However, due to unavoidable stretch or movement of the fabric during the stitching process, we cannot guarantee perfect pattern registration across garment seams. We are generally accurate within 2-3mm, which Is close enough for most patterns but may show slight issues with detailed geometric patterns.
Can I print my own Labels?
Most of our garments now come with printable label space for you to add your own company information and branding! If you would like to sew in your own labels, we also offer Printed Fabric Labels here.
How is your fabric printing eco-friendly?
With environmental consciousness in mind, our fabrics are all printed using completely water-based inks. This means no chemicals or solvents are used. Our heat fixing procedure fixes the colours and prints, avoiding the downsides of steaming, such as excess or contaminated water returning into the waste system. We have one facility in London where we conduct all the printing, production and fulfillment.
