About Your Custom Piggy Banks
Your custom coin banks, printed with your bespoke designs, are a fun way to encourage saving. We print your original designs onto strong, tough ceramic porcelain, resulting in a stunning vibrant print that immediately catches your gaze. This is ideal if you're prone to slip up when it comes to saving that spare change. Your money can easily be removed any time you want via the rubber stopper underneath, so there's no need to smash your piggy bank like UK tradition. Design your own piggy bank for a child's playroom, your office desk or for the family home and collect your coins in a unique way.

How Your Custom Piggy Banks are Made
We only use the best inks and printing process to ensure the premium aesthetic of your money pots UK made. The ceramic porcelain is pre-moulded to shape, ensuring there's a large coin slot and hole underneath to support the rubber stopper. Please note that due to our ceramic and porcelain printing methods, our printer leaves a small gap in the design on the back, but rest assured your images still cover the majority and look striking against the white background. The ceramic has a natural glossy surface, making your design 'ping' and stand out.
Wipe clean with a tissue or damp cloth to remove any dust or dirt. Do not put your custom coin banks in the dishwasher, as this may impact the ceramic and life of the print.
Your design is printed onto the front of the money pot, and curves around the sides towards to the bank. There will be a small gap left unprinted at the back, due to the nature of porcelain printing, but the majority of the piggy bank is custom printed with your original designs. Print reproduction is flawless, so you can choose designs with intricate details and they'll come through sharp and strong.

Frequently asked questions:
What material do you use?
We use a resilient white ceramic porcelain, which produces a beautiful print with high definition colour and sharp, fine details.
How do I get my money out?
At the bottom a hole is cut into the custom coin bank and a rubber stopper is inserted, which you can remove to get your money out.
Will the print scratch off?
Absolutely not, as we use specialist dye sublimation printing that fuses the inks deep into the material, creating a long-lasting print.

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.
