How your Photo Book Box Is Made
We print your design onto Suede Vision fabric, which is used to cover the FSC certified card lid of the custom photo album box. We use modern digital printing techniques that infuse the inks deep into the fibres. The edges of the lid are available in a choice of 12 different colours, and the inside of your photo album storage box is lined.
Surface wipe only. If necessary use a damp cloth with mild soapy water.
The base of your custom photo album box is black, however, the lid is printed with your design across the top and you have a choice of 12 colours for the edges of the lid. Choose from black, blue, green, grey, lilac, orange, pink, red, ruby, teal, umber or white, to perfectly complement your design.
Each box is 2.4 cm deep, and available in A3, A4 or A5 so you can design them to portray what is contained within the albums that will be stored in them, or if you prefer, completely differently.
Please note that each custom photo album box is slightly bigger than the A-size, as it is to contain an album of that size.

Frequently asked questions:
What part of the photo book box do I design?
Your design is printed onto the top of the lid of your custom photo album box. The lid is slightly bigger than the base and sits on top of it. Your design is printed edge to edge across the top of your custom photo album box.
Where is the colour applied?
Your choice of one of the 12 colours determines the colour around the edge of the photo album storage box lid. This will entirely encompass the base of the box, so when the lid is on and the box is closed, all you will see is the lid.
What colour is the base of my photo book box?
The base (and lining) of your custom photo album box is black, inside and out. This doesn't change depending on the options you choose. Remember that once the lid is placed onto the box you will not be able to see the base.
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.
