How Your Custom Printed Espresso Cups Are Made

When you design your own espresso cup on our design interface, we will finish our own coffees and get straight to work on your order. Your patterns and designs are printed onto a custom espresso cup incl. dish in our London facility using an expert printing process that ensures long lasting prints. Your patterns wrap around the personalised espresso mugs and will meet at the handle, where there will be a small white strip. The set will have a beautifully glossy finish. 

Care Instructions

Our long lasting printing process will last year after year so you don't need to worry about your designs peeling off anytime said. That being said, we would recommend only hand washing your custom espresso cup, and refrain from add to the next load in the dish washer. 

Custom printed espresso cups can then be dried normally and placed carefully in the cupboard - but they also make quite a nice kitchen accessory to display or showcase on an open shelf. 

Design Tips

Your custom espresso cup can be truly personal and unique to you - so it's time to get creative. Not only will you be able to add designs, patterns, logo and text to the cup, there's also plenty of space for you to work with on the accompanying saucer.  If you want more than one, we offer custom printed espresso cups in a two or four pack as well. 

Design your own espresso cup with funky designs that match your kitchen colourscheme, so they can be out on display by the coffee machine, or add initials to each one of them for each colleague at work.

Frequently asked questions:

How many espresso cups will I receive?

Our design interface allows you to design a single espresso cup incl. saucer, or multiple - two packs and 4 packs are available.

How should I care for my espresso cup?

As your custom printed espresso cups are expertly printed, you don't need to worry about the pattern peeling off when you wash it. That being said, we would really recommend hand-wash only, rather than putting them in the dishwasher.

I don't like espresso, do you have a larger size?

Yes! The design interface will allow you to choose from personalised espresso mugs, or a regular tea or coffee style cup.

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.
