How Your Lunch Box is Printed & Made
Each individual lunch box is custom printed and made to order in London, UK, by our expert makers. We print your designs onto the glossy, plastic lid, wrapping around the edges for a flawless 3D effect. A rubber seal is inserted to the inner lid, which keeps your contents fresh and secure. The push-to-open clasp mechanism ensures your custom printed lunch box remains tightly closed when on-the-move.
We advise that you wash your custom lunch box by hand to preserve the life and quality of the print, ensuring it stays vibrant for years to come. Please do not put in the dishwasher.
Inspiration to Design Your Own Lunch Box
Your images wrap around the lid, creating a stunning 3D wrap effect. If you do have features of your design that are paramount to the overall finish, then make sure that you feature them on the top of lid, to avoid them wrapping around the curved edges. This includes text too, unless that is the desired effect that you're after. Within the design interface, simply use the dashed green lines as a guide. Any imagery placed within the green box will be printed on the top of the lid, and any elements outside this space will be printed around the edges.

High Quality, Fast, Amenable
Great quality product; arrived really quickly. Easy ordering from start to finish. I managed to mess up my design and a staff member kindly contacted me to offer help in re-designing.
Great service all round!
I was able to send my friend a lunchbox with a picture of Cheryl showing the middle finger. I love you guys.
The whole process from placing the order to receipt of product was seemly and professional
We were expecting the classic thin plastic lunch box and we were really impressed with the product we received. The lid is firm and shows perfect details of the image, inside of the lid has a rub on the edges to avoid liquid and sauce to pour our from the lunch box and the whole box is done in hard plastic which doesn't press and deform.
Thank you very much for such a great product. The glossy finish on the lid makes colour stand out really good.
I designed 2, one for each of my sons and I designed them with their own drawings, they loved them sooo much! Quite impressed with the material, very resistant, so I am sure will last for long! Thanks again.
It's the first time I order with you guys and I have to say I am really impressed with the product received. Image resolution is incredibly good and the lunch box is resistant and perfect size.

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.
