How Your Custom Cube is Made

We print your designs onto the fabric first and foremost, our printing technicians use a state-of-the-art printing technique for a long-lasting, fade-resistant print. This material is then cut to size by our expert craftsmen; by printing first, we can ensure that your designs run from edge-to-edge. The super-sumptuous Soft Velvet outer is beautifully hand-sewn to the perfect size for the firm foam inner, and both materials are fire-rated for your peace of mind.



Care Instructions

Both the Soft Velvet outer and the firm foam inner are fire rated. For best results, surface clean only with a damp cloth.
Outer cover fire rated to BS7176, BS3379 and Toy and cushion filling fibre BS5852 compliant. Polyurethane foam compliant to BS5852 ignition source 5 (Crib 5)

Design Tips

You can create each of the six sides individually, so when you design your own cube, it is entirely your choice whether you want them to all be the same or to be different than one another. 

Remember that the printing area is square, so if using paintings or illustrations then a large design that relies on being rectangular would likely not yield the best results. 

The larger custom cubes are ideal as a footrest or as additional seating whereas the smaller picture cubes make ideal gifts or decorations, or even for small children, babies and toddlers. 

How does this product enhance my...

  • Home

    Whether your intention is to decorate your home in a way that is personal to you or to add additional seating for when you have visitors, a custom cube is ideal. In fact, why choose when you can do both at once? When you design your own cube it can be used as home decor when not in use, and then when needed it can double up as a spare seat.

  • Business

    You can print anything you like on your custom cube and each side can be designed individually. This is perfect for adding your logo, website address, company name and even great customer testimonials onto each side. You can then use your picture cube to decorate tables, or as seating in your waiting space.

  • Design Brand

    Design your own cube featuring a different design from one of your collections on each side as a truly unique alternative to a portfolio. If you work with commissions, a custom cube featuring your own designs makes for perfect seating for your consultation space. These amazing custom cubes are the perfect addition to offer to your customers.

Frequently asked questions:

What areas of the custom cube can I customise?

You can customise your picture cube all over. Each of the six sides can be designed individually and you can choose whether to use the same or a different design on each. As we print before cutting and stitching your design will span the surface entirely from edge to edge.

How big is the custom cube?

When you design your own cube you can choose the size from our range of six different sizes. Available from 4 to 20 inches or 10 to 50 cm you can choose the best-sized custom cube depending on your intended use.

What fabric do you use inside the picture cube?

The inner material of the custom cube is a firm foam filling. This is a polyurethane foam which is fire-rated [compliant to BS5852 ignition source 5 (Crib 5)]. This foam is spongy enough to provide comfort but firm enough to hold weight when being used as a chair.

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)

  • GSM ICON

    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.
