How your Custom Passport Cover is Made
Unique sheets of Italian Nappa leather or vegan-friendly faux leather are printed onto directly using dye sublimation techniques. This fuses the inks deep into the fibres of the material, creating a long-lasting print that won't rub, peel away or scratch off. Passport cover leather printing produces a beautiful, high-quality print with saturated colours and high definition details on white leather. The leather is cut to size and hand stitched together by our expert seamstresses, in your choice of white or black thread. Please be assured that we source the finest leather available and that your custom passport cover is truly one of a kind.
Clean the surface with a slightly damp cloth. Because we use unique pieces of real leather to make each passport holder, the grain of the leather might be visible. Over time and with use, a creased patina will begin to develop, which is a charming effect showing the authenticity of the leather.
Your unique designs are printed edge-to-edge on the front cover, back cover and two internal flaps used to tuck your pages into. You can choose the same or different design for each area, depending on the desired usage of your leather passport holder. The interior is a good place to put your contact details and information should you ever lose your passport, and the exterior can be used for showing off your vibrant designs. Our artisan seamstresses hand stitch the passport cover in your choice of white or black thread, so choose the best complementary colour, or do the opposite and create a contrast.
Choose the size of the passport cover based on the passport you wish to use it for. Standard passport covers fit passports that are sized 125 mm x 88 mm. This will be for those issued in the UK, France, Italy, Spain, Portugal, Canada, USA and Australia. You can also choose a larger passport cover, which will be for those which are issued in the Netherlands and Denmark, as well as old and new German passports.
Reviews for Passport Cover
based on 2 customer reviews
For my Mum's birthday, I ordered a passport cover showing some of the people closest to her heart. The results were magnificent and she was delighted with it. She's taken to showing it off at every opportunity!
Nice soft leather and really good print quality, but expensive for what is. Basically it's 1 piece of leather with 2 folds and a running stitch around the edge - custom printed made to order I suppose is why

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.
Please note: As everything we provide is handmade to order, all measurements may vary slightly.
