How Your Printed Blankets are Made
Using a specialist dye sublimation process, the inks are fused deep into the Polar Fleece fibres, creating a long-lasting print that won't crack, peel or scratch away, even with repeat washing. We carefully prepare two layers of above-average weight Polar Fleece (285gsm) and then lovingly stitch them together, resulting in a thick and sumptuous 570 gsm double-thick custom blankets, probably the thickest available. Handmade to order by our team of expert print technicians, talented craftsmen and artisan seamstresses, there's a genuine authenticity that radiates from your customisable blankets. We also offer a 100% satisfaction guarantee or you'll get your money back*.
*Returns procedure must be followed
For the best results, machine wash at 30°c on a short spin cycle and drip dry flat without wringing out. Tumble dry on a low heat if necessary. Ironing is not required. Your custom blankets, UK handmade to order, have a 10-year guarantee on print, material and stitching finish if care instructions are followed.
Printed edge-to-edge with your unique designs, these custom blankets, UK made to order, are a real statement feature. Design your own blanket printed on both sides, so your design is always on show; this also allows you to create two versions of your blanket. You could even choose to make your own blanket with totally contrasting design styles on either side, so you can interchange your decor at the drop of a hat, or use it for different purposes.
For a more simplistic design, print on the front only and choose from either cream, black, blue or pink for the reverse side. Whichever option you settle on when you design your own blanket, we are certain that you won't be disappointed. The exquisite Polar Fleece fabric is fire rated, fray-proof and anti-pilling, making it both outstandingly snuggly and incredibly practical. A spectacular napped texture gives this textile a smooth and fluffy handle.
The hydrophobic nature of the fabric we use for your custom blankets UK means that it is ideal for all ages, and while it isn't totally waterproof, it's certainly dribble-proof. Polar Fleece is very easy to manipulate and holds its shape extremely well. The matte surface and the bright white base tone give your designs a vivid, striking colour intensity. The plush, brushed effect of the super-soft fleece softens the lines of your design, giving your custom blankets an amazingly homely, dreamy aesthetic.

I couldn't quite believe how quickly the photoblanket arrived - ordered on Sunday, with me on Tuesday!! When I opened it, I was truly amazed at the quality - really fantastic. As a bonus, I didn't have to pay for it until it arrived. Well done to all involved :)
Great product,the images have come out nicely
Very happy with quality of the blanket and the photos are just as I imagined. My grandson will be delighted. Excellent service and quick delivery.
The blanket was super soft and the print much clearer than I expected for the type of fabric. Professionally sewn, and beautifully finished, it was the perfect gift for a friend's new baby, and without the labour of sewing it myself! Super happy, excellent quality and finish. Highly recommended
Great service, high quality printing and good quality products.

Frequently asked questions:
Are my custom blankets durable?
Our custom blankets, UK made from Polar Fleece, are hydrophobic, meaning they repel water instead of absorbing it. It is also anti-pilling and it's fray proof, so you can rest assured that the edges remain neat and tidy. The expert printing methods we use are proven to last considerably longer and the colours to stay brighter than conventional fabric printing techniques.
Is it machine washable?
Absolutely, so there's no need to worry about extra maintenance. Simply machine wash at 30°c on a short spin for best results. Hang to drip dry and do not wring it out. The luxurious Polar Fleece is anti-creasing so there should be no need to iron your custom blankets. The superb anti-pilling nature of this super-soft textile means that the surface won't bobble after you've washed it.

You can order your blanket in four sizes, of varying shapes. Large and square is perfect to design your own blanket as a feature piece. Large custom blankets, UK made, are the ultimate comfort.

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.
