About Your Custom Made Scrolls
Hand printed and cut, custom printed scrolls are a new, unique way to present your artwork, designs or photography. Displayed on a rough-cut, A4 piece of high-quality real leather, give your work a whole new canvas and display it in a way that it has never been displayed before. Rolled up and tied with a red ribbon, custom scrolls are great as a gift, for yourself, or as a new way to sell your art.

How Your Leather Scroll Is Made
We use the most up-to-date leather printing technologies. This digital printing technique will bond your design deep into the leather, which means that your print will be as strong as the leather itself. Printed onto a white base, colours will be rich and full, and fine details will be displayed wonderfully.
Your custom printed scrolls are made with real leather, so over time small creases may arise on the surface. This is normal, and to be expected, further adding to the charm of the leather scroll. Should your custom made scrolls become a little dirty or dusty, simply wipe with a cloth.
Design Tips and Ideas
When creating the design for your custom printed scrolls, the area that you have is approximately A4 sized. This is a great size for a full print of a piece, but smaller designs that repeat would also display really well.
The detailing on leather printing is exquisite, lines as small as 2pt display wonderfully. This is great if you want to scale down a larger piece of art to A4 size.

Frequently asked questions:
What else could I use the scroll for?
The scroll would not only look great as a piece of art, but you can print a message on it as well and present it as a 3rd (Leather) Anniversary gift, for something truly personal on a leather scroll.
Are the custom printed scrolls mass produced?
Not at all, we pride ourselves in hand making to order. So much so that the pieces of leather aren't even pre-cut. We print your design before we cut the leather to ensure edge to edge printing.
How long will it take for me to receive my custom scroll?
Custom made scrolls are created in only a few days. How soon you receive your leather scroll is dependant on the delivery option that you choose. We display our production time on each page at the top, simply add your delivery time to that.
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.
