How Pillow Printing Works

Your unique designs are printed onto the velvet fabric using dye-sublimation, fusing the inks deep into the fibres for an everlasting print. We know how important it is to coordinate your home furnishings, so we give you the option of printing on the reverse too. Mix and match two distinct design themes, or design your own pillow, UK made to order, using similar patterns but with their own nuances. For a simplistic but stylish approach, leave the reverse plain and just choose from 5 gorgeous colours. Your pillow cushion is stitched by our expert seamstresses, where a chunky heart zipper is attached for a unique finishing touch. 



Care Instructions

Machine wash the Soft Velvet cover at 30°c. Drip or tumble dry. You shouldn't need to iron, but if you do, please turn inside out and use a medium heat. To maintain the fluffy, soft pile, use a brush after every few washes and feel the fibres relaxing and returning to their original, gorgeous state. 

  • Wash At 30 Degrees
  • Wash at 85 Fahrenheit
  • Tumble 1
  • Hang Dry
  • No Wring
  • Low Heat

Design Tips

Colours, patterns and fine details all show up beautifully on the Soft Velvet fabric, so don't be afraid of using bold contrasts. The sumptuous feel and wonderful print reproduction make your custom pillows a perfect addition to the home. Print original artwork and bring your pieces to life, or use colours and patterns that help enhance other features in the room.

Scattered on any seating area, your printed pillows demand attention, ideal if you've got a marketing message or brand that needs promoting. You can design your own pillow, UK made to order, for personal or public space.

Featuring your logo or slogan, printed pillows are an instant eye catcher and offer customers reassurance they're in the right place. Event areas that include a lounge space can be decorated with your customised pillow range. Comfort, branding and style rolled into one.

  • Design Brand

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?

    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)

  • 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.
