How your Dog Leads are Made
Your dog leads are UK handmade in our London studios, crafted by experts. The small section that you design is repeat printed all over and both sides of the 130cm leash, giving your image or text maximum exposure on such a narrow width. We use strong polyester webbing, and line the interior of the handle with thick, spongy neoprene, preventing pain when your dog pulls. So that it's easy for you to secure your dog quickly and at any angle, we fold the webbing over at the end at put a classic metal clip in the loop. The finished product is a quality leash for dogs that can rein in the strongest of hounds.
The textured webbing material is tough and durable, so should it get mucky, wait until the dirt is dry and rub off. You can also use a damp soapy cloth to remove any tough dirt.
Please note that you design a 10cm segment, which is then repeated all over on both sides. We do this so that your design, logo or text is visible at all times from any angle. Due to the width being so narrow and the length being much longer, printing one image on these custom dog leads would result in a stretched out, distorted print. Also, we suggest bold patterns or designs, rather than intricate details, as small text and details could be lost on the textured grainy webbing.

Frequently asked questions:
How long are the custom dog leads?

What element of the lead do I design?
You design a 10cm area of the custom dog leads, and this is then repeat printed all over on both sides. This gives your design maximum exposure, and ensures there's no distortion like there would be if one image was stretched across.

Yes, we there is a classic metal rotating clip, allowing you to easily secure and release your dog from any angle. Your made in the UK dog leads are tough and strong, and can withstand and rein in even large dogs pulling hard on the lead.

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.
