How a Custom iPad Mini Leather Case is Made
We print your designs and artwork directly onto the leather, with no extra films or coatings, ensuring that the print is as strong as the leather itself. Once printed, the leather is cut to size and hand-stitches by artisan seamstresses on site.
Should you need to clean your custom iPad Mini Cover, simply surface wipe with a damp cloth and mild soapy water.
Bear in mind that the custom iPad Mini leather case has a small, semi-circular cut out at the top. This is so that you can easily remove your iPad from the case. Ensure that there are no important details or any main features of your design in this area, or you may find that they get cut off.
We advise that you avoid using solid blocks of colour all over when you design your iPad mini case as due to the surface textures of natural leather they can appear a little patchy. Every single custom iPad Mini leather case is handmade using bespoke pieces of Nappa. This means that there are always variations in the surface texture and natural, visible grain from one cover to the next. No two are ever the same.

Frequently asked questions:
I already have an cover on my iPad, how does this work?
Our custom iPad Mini leather cases have been specifically designed to fit all mini iPad models, even if you already have an Apple cover on. We cannot guarantee compatibility with third party covers, however.
Can I use this for other iPads?
When you design your own iPad Mini case, you can use it with any iPad Mini model, however it is not compatible with standard iPads, or non-Apple tablets. We have a range of phone and tablet cases if you have a different model.
Are both sides printed the same?
You can design the front and back of your custom iPad Mini leather case individually. This means that you can choose to have them the same, or different. We would recommend not relying on a pattern match though.

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.
