About Your Custom Compact Mirror
This custom compact mirror is an everyday essential with a stylish twist. Made from silver chrome polished to perfection and printed with your artwork on the top of the lid, they're a small but unforgettable accessory. We print your designs onto a white base that has a subtle sparkle, resulting in a glamorous, contemporary finish. They're perfectly proportioned to fit in your pocket but still provide a substantial, clear reflection.
As they're designed to be carried in your pocket, the customised compact mirror has been made with a hinged clasp opening, protecting the two internal glass mirrors from scuffs and scratches. Presented in a hand-sewn drawstring pouch, with beautiful floral engravings on the underside, this is an elegant mirror.

How your Custom Compact Mirror is Printed & Made
We coat the circle print area with a white base that has a subtle twinkle in the background, giving your patterns a distinct print reproduction. Details are clear and sharp to the point where it resembles an actual photograph. You don't want seven years bad luck for breaking a mirror, so the hinged clasp is engineered with precision to protect the internal elements. Our expert seamstresses hand stitch the fabric drawstring pouch your mirror comes in, adding a neat red ribbon for the finishing touch.
The silver chrome body of your custom compact mirror is easily wiped clean, and the fact that the mirrors are internal means they remain clean, dust free and protected from scratches inside your pocket or bag.
The diameter of your custom compact mirror is 5.7cm, however, your print area is slightly smaller (5cm) as we leave a border. In the design interface, position your design carefully to ensure the important features are within the printable area. Bold tribal patterns, tropical prints and classic motifs work really well, but we'd suggest avoiding extremely small text as it might be difficult to read. Make your own custom pocket mirrors for branding purposes and emblazon your logo onto the lid, or to help launch a campaign, print the hashtag you're using to encourage engagement.

If you run a beauty salon, these customised compact mirrors can be an innovative addition to your branded goods. Each makeup artist can have their own for when customers want to inspect details of their makeover. The size of the print area is well suited to displaying logos, making ideal corporate gifts and promo items. What's more, they won't be laden with something heavy or awkward to carry.
Make your own pocket mirror range to creatively promote your artwork. If you already sell toiletry products, this is a natural accompaniment to cosmetic cases, wash bags etc. The print area might be small, but the high definition reproduction is amazing.

Frequently asked questions:
Is there a minimum order?
There's no minimum order for custom pocket mirrors so if you only need to purchase 1, that's absolutely fine as we print on demand and to order.
Are they suitable for keeping in handbags?
Of course. The mirrors are made with a hinged clasp opening, so whenever it's in your bag, the internal mirrors are protected from scuffs and dust.
Will my printed design scratch off?
We use a specialist dye sublimation technique that fuses the ink to the surface, so it won't peel away or crack over time. It's a long-lasting print.

Take a look at this range of mirrors that our #ContradoCreatives have exclusively designed. Each one is totally unique and represents the artist's original thinking and artistic style.
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.
