About Your Pot Holder

    With these custom pot holders, you get 2 in 1 as they also double up as a hot dish pad. On the reverse there's 2 pockets for your fingers and thumb, making it easy to grip on to pot handles and pans in a hurry, whilst the hanging loop is a nifty feature. The trim and hanging loop comes in either soft pink, baby blue or neutral beige, so choose the colour that will best complement your original designs.

    Made from heat resistant fabric with thick wadding, your pot holder is perfect for protecting your worktops from heat damage. As they come in a set of 2, you can simply use one as a mitt to retrieve the dish from the oven, and the other as a hot plate rest.

How your Pot Holder is Made & Printed

Your unique designs are digitally printed onto the heat resistant fabric, which is then stitched with a generous amount of thick padding inside. The hemming is covered with a decorative trim sewn in 3 colours and a hanging loop is attached in the matching trim colour. Our artisan seamstresses ensure the pot holder is finished to an excellent standard, with the pockets sewn in accurately to guarantee safety in the kitchen. 

Important: Do not use custom pot holders when wet. They are not fireproof and are designed for ordinary use in the kitchen, briefly moving hot dishes - not holding for long periods of time. When working in a kitchen, always take care handling hot pans and removing items from ovens. 



Care Instructions

Design Tips

They come in a set of 2, and each one can be printed with a different design or kept the same for uniformity. Bear in mind the bleed area that will be used for the hemming and trim. Print your pot holder with a complementary design to the rest of your homely kitchen and enjoy a harmonised interior decor.

Not only are these practical and efficient for restaurants, cafes and professional kitchens, but they're also a smart way to decoratively display your branding. They can also be labelled for specific departments to ensure all of your operations are in order.

Print Guideline

  • DPI-Print Guideline Icon

    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.

  • Jpeg-Tiff Print Guideline Icon

    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.

  • RGB-CMYK Print Guideline Icon

    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.

  • GSM ICON

    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).

  • Fill Bleed Areas ICON

    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.

  • Transfer-Print Guideline Icon

    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.

  • Pattern Alignment Across Seams ICON

    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.

  • print label option icon

    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.

  • Eco friendly Printing

    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.
