How We Print and Make Your Bespoke Handbags

When you design your own handbag, you can be rest assured that you will be receiving a piece of fashion made with the highest quality and care. Expert seamstresses work with precision to ensure each and every bag made is perfect. Your designs are printed onto our woven canvas fabric. This fabric was chosen because of its robust nature and its superior print quality. The fabric is sewn to your choice of leather or vinyl to complete the body of the bag. Final touches such as the Italian leather handles, chrome stud feet, popper fastening, faux suede lining and internal pockets show the high quality craftsmanship of your new bag.



Care Instructions

The print on your new bag is permanent and cannot be rubbed off. If your bag gets a little dirty, we recommend wiping it clean with a damp cloth.
  • Wipe Down
  • No Soak

Design Tips

You have a large surface to print your design onto when you make your own handbag. Select a bag colour that will suit your design (black looks wonderful with bold patterns and pink is very pretty with delicate designs) and upload your artwork onto the front and back. You have the option to print different graphics on either side if you wish. Consider the metal eyelets that attach the leather handles to the bag. These come down about an inch from the top of the bag. If you have fine detailing in your design, we recommend keeping them away from the eyelets, so that they do not interrupt the pattern. 

About 1cm of your final design will get stitched into the bag, so try and keep the edges a bleed area. If there are fine details or vital components of your image right on the edge, then we suggest altering it slightly so these do not get lost.

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 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 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.
