About Your Custom Beach Bags
Handmade to order with your designs, your custom beach bags are printed and sewn from high quality materials, including patent vinyl, canvas and leather. Strong, stylish and chic, your new beach tote will store all of your essentials comfortably. Your bag is lined with a waterproof material, which is perfect if you need to put a damp swimming costume in the bag. Canvas is a very robust fabric, and will be able to withstand knocks, bumps and sand. The canvas is sewn together with sleek and glossy patent vinyl, and finished off with long leather handles. When you design your own beach bag, you can choose from 4 trim colours and whether you print your designs on just the front, or the front and the back of the bag.

How Your Custom Beach Bags Are Made
Your artwork is printed onto our strong but soft canvas fabric. We print deep into the fibres of the fabric, effectively fusing the ink with the textile. This creates a stunning, long-lasting print, which you will love. As you are the designer, it is up to you whether you print your designs onto the front, or both the front and back of your new beach bag. You can make it look as subtle or as statement as you wish. The fabrics and materials we use are designed to withstand the elements, so sun, sand and surf won't affect the look or quality of your bag. When your artwork is printed onto the canvas, it is hand stitched with the patent vinyl, to create a sturdy and stylish tote. It is flexible and strong and can be packed with everything you need for your day, or even overnight. The long leather handles are one of our favourite features. They are comfortable to wear over your shoulder, and long enough to allow the bag to hang down by your side.
Both the shell and lining of these bags are easy to clean. We recommend using a damp cloth with a mild soapy solution.
When you think about what design you want to print on your bag, consider the colour of the trim. Black trim bags come with a black leather handle, and the other 3 colour options comes with a natural tan handle. The colour of the trim should play a part in the final overall look of your bag. There are no fastenings or eyelets to disrupt your artwork, so you truly do have a large blank canvas to design. If you are planning on using your bag purely for the beach or on holiday, then opt for those exotic and topical colour palettes, or one that will match your swimming costume.

I printed two black and white posters, the paper of a beautiful matte white is thick enough, the print is very correct.
A Georgette silk scarf very well made, borders, fabric and printing are perfect.
And a shopping bag really beautiful and of good quality (seams, printing). I am glad!
No problem of delivery. Very good follow up.
Thank you Contrado and see you soon for new prints!

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?
If each individual colour is specifically important to your design, choose CYMK as our setup will print each colour with the closest possible match within our available range. If the relationship between the colours within the image is more important, choose RGB, this will reduce all colours equally to fit within our range.
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.
