How Your Custom MacBook Air Case is Made
Your designs are printed onto a spongey and thick neoprene textile, using a professional dye sublimation method. This means the eco-friendly inks we use are locked directly into the fibres of the fabric, which results in a waterproof and long-lasting print. Expect bright colours and sharp details, with a consistent tone across the print. The material is cut to size and handsewn together all onsite in our London factory, by our textile specialists. The binding trim comes in four colours; black, green, stone or maroon, with a zipper running just past the curved corners.
Your new laptop case can be easily cleaned by gently wiping a damp cloth across the surface.
As each side can be customised separately when you design your own MacBook Air case, you can experiment with two totally unique designs, to give the front and the back their own individual looks. Why not try printing an abstract design on both the front and back but in two different colour palettes – perfect for every season throughout the year. You could also print a favourite painting on the front and an inspirational artists quote on the back, to motivate you while you’re hard at work.

Frequently asked questions:
How big is the case?
The cases are perfectly made to fit sizes 11" or 13" laptops.
What is the case made out of?
The case is made from a super thick and spongy neoprene, perfect for protecting your gadget.
Can I print both sides?
Both sides of the MacBook Air case can be printed, with either the same design or two different designs.
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.
