Say goodbye to the standard red, green and white this year and design your own Christmas baubles. The plastic spherical baubles feature your design printed and placed in the centre of the transparent bubble. You can print a different design on either side, and the baubles can even be opened up to add glitter snow or treats. Available as single custom Christmas baubles, or in packs of either two, three or six. Beautiful bone china baubles are available in singles or packs of three or six. An optional gift box makes these baubles ideal for gifting as well as to decorate your own tree or to offer to your customers throughout the festive season.

Custom Christmas Baubles

    Customised baubles are truly magnificent. A unique way to show off your designs, especially those which have a little Christmas spirit within them. For an extra special touch with the plastic baubles, when you design your own Christmas baubles, you can remove the silver cap and separate the bauble to gain access to the inside. Use this space to put glitter snow or to pop sweets or treats. To create the pinnacle of Christmas elegance, your bone china baubles come with the options of stunning gift packaging made from either sturdy card (single option) or FSC certified natural wood (for three or six-pack options) with a sliding lid.

How your Custom Christmas Baubles are Made

We print your photos using deep infusion technology to provide rub-proof, fade-resistant prints. For the plastic baubles, these are printed onto a photo insert which is then placed in the centre of the transparent bauble. You can print either the same or a different design on either side giving you the opportunity to multiply your festive feeling when you design your own Christmas baubles.
When you opt for the bone china baubles, we use our brand-new, state-of-the-art methods to print directly onto the surface of the bauble. You can print any image or design of your choice onto the front, with the option to add text to the back of the bauble too.

Care Instruction

Should it be necessary to clean your custom printed Christmas bauble simply wipe clean with a damp cloth and some mild soapy water.

Design Tips

Go against the grain this year and ditch disposable decorations. You can use Christmassy colours in a non-traditional design. You could use alternative colours in a Christmas themed design. You could do the total opposite, and make a very Christmassy design, or a not Christmassy at all design. Whatever you decide, the choice really is all yours when you create your own Christmas baubles.

When you choose the bone china baubles you are given six different colour options for the velvety ribbon colour. Choose from Dark Red or Green for a traditionally festive feel, Soft Grey or Warm Stone for a more neutral aesthetic, or even Pale Pink or Blue to signify a special occasion such as "Baby's First Christmas" "First Family Christmas" or even "Our First Christmas Together".

Frequently asked questions:

Can I design both sides?

You get the option to design the front and back separately. For plastic baubles, you can opt to have the same design on each side or a different one. For the bone china baubles, you can opt to add text to the back of the bauble.

Why does the plastic one open?

Your custom Christmas bauble opens up, which can be used for a variety of reasons. From updating the print, to adding glitter snow or even popping in a treat or two. You don’t have to open it, but it’s a handy little feature.

How does this hang?

Your custom Christmas bauble is supplied with a velvety, hanging ribbon which is looped through the cap. This is knotted to hold it in place and is on the removable part of the cap so that you don’t have to untie it to open the bauble.

Print Guideline

  • DPI-Print Guideline Icon

    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.

  • Jpeg-Tiff Print Guideline Icon

    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.

  • RGB-CMYK Print Guideline Icon

    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).

  • Fill Bleed Areas ICON

    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.

  • Transfer-Print Guideline Icon

    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.

  • Pattern Alignment Across Seams ICON

    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.

  • print label option icon

    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.

  • Eco friendly Printing

    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.

Please note: As everything we provide is handmade to order, all measurements may vary slightly.
