How Are Your Decorative Door Stops Made?
Handmade in London by our team of skilled craftsmen and seamstresses, your new door stop is so much more than a means to holding doors open! It all starts with your designs. When you have uploaded them into the online platform and chosen your base and side colour, it is over to us. Our expert technicians print your designs onto woven canvas, which is then cut to size. The door stops are filled with 2kg of clean model makers gravel. This is what weighs it down and makes it so sturdy. The door stop is then sewed into its unique pyramid shape, before being finished with a smart rope handle.
Your door stop is made from durable and robust woven canvas, so it holds up to marks and scuffs very well. For any caked on dirt, we recommend using a damp cloth and a mild soapy solution to wipe it off.
Your doors will be given a new lease of life when they are partnered up with a bespoke door stop. Handmade in London, your designs are uploaded onto the front and back of this unique door stop. The unique pyramid design of the door stop will complement contemporary designs beautifully, so why not opt for a vibrant colour palette or an abstract pattern? The neutral base tones will help balance out your design, ensuring it will look chic. The canvas fabric is a wonderful material for showing intricate details and fine lines, so portraits and photography would also make great subject matters for your print. Remember that you can design the front and the back of the door stop, so a humorous design would look great...see where your imagination takes you.

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.
