About Your Custom Oven Gloves
Made from our hero faux suede fabric, your custom oven gloves are fire rated and water resistant with a double layer of microfibre insulation. The separate thumb grip makes removing dishes from the oven easy, and the hanging loop allows you to maintain a tidy kitchen. These gloves offer the ultimate protection as they also cover your wrists, which sometimes get left unprotected and accidentally burnt.
You can make your own oven mitts as a pair, or simply choose a single right hand or left-hand glove. Print your artwork or graphic designs on both sides to showcase your talent or brand. The material we use is non-fray, an important feature when it's to be used around food, and is printed using dye sublimation for long-lasting colour. Please note, your oven mitts have been designed for ordinary kitchen purposes, namely for holding pots and pans up to 180°c momentarily.

How your Custom Oven Gloves are Made
Your unique designs are digitally printed onto our Suede Vision fabric which is then cut and stitched by our expert seamstresses. We include a double layer of microfibre insulation to ensure it's fully padded and heat doesn't penetrate through. We hand-stitch a cream trip around the top of the opening and attach a handy loop so you can easily tidy it away. Everything is finished by hand to guarantee you receive a flawless kitchen accessory.
Sometimes, oven mitts can get splattered with food stains, so you'll be happy to know these are washing machine safe. Wash at 30°c or below to preserve the life of your print.
When you make your own oven mitts, consider the shape of the glove. If your artwork has a main subject, position it in the oblong part of the glove and avoid putting placing important details around the thumb grip in case they are lost in the stitching. To create your glove, we stitch the fabric together along the sides. If you're using the same pattern on both sides, please note that it won't be a seamless wrap around and may not join up, as the material is sewn at the sides.

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.
