About Your Custom Director Chairs
Create something truly bespoke for your home or garden with the custom director chairs. Your new chair is constructed from a beech wood frame. This wood has been sustainably sourced from FSC suppliers. The weather repellent canvas on which your design is printed is a tough and durable fabric, which is surprisingly soft and comfortable. There are 3 print areas on our directors chairs UK made and assembled. Upload your designs onto the seat and the front and back of the backrest to create a unique piece of furniture. The collapsing mechanism makes it so easy to collapse and store away and the water repellent qualities of the canvas fabric makes this an ideal piece of garden furniture.

How Your Custom Director Chairs Are Made
Featuring a high quality wooden frame and a stylish canvas seat and backrest, your chair is a beautiful piece of furniture to use, look at and enjoy. Upload your designs onto the interface for the seat and backrest. You can create different designs for the front and back of the backrest, which is also reversible. The wooden frame is made in the EU exclusively for us, from responsibly sourced beech wood. Our team of skilled technicians print the canvas fabric piece by piece, before seamstresses take over, hemming the material to the highest standards. Cut and sewn by hand in-house, the fabric is then attached to the wooden frame, creating an iconic piece of furniture made exclusively for you.
Your directors chair is robust and easy to care for. The covers are detachable for washing, and can be done so in a 30 degree wash if needed. Otherwise, simply wipe down with a damp cloth as required.
Because you have 3 printable areas, you have quite a lot of space to showcase your design talent. The custom directors chair has a square seat and a landscape rectangular backrest, so ensure you keep these dimensions in mind when creating your print. All over designs can look incredibly striking, using the same artwork for the backrest and the seat. Alternatively, you can create a custom printed chair by including text, typography, a name or even a branded logo. Include this on the design for the backrest and something entirely different for the seat.

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.
