How Custom Desk Pad Printing Is Produced
At Contrado we specialise in custom desk pad printing, which is why you can feel assured that you will receive a beautifully produced, one of a kind piece. Every pad is made by hand at the Contrado studios in London by our skilled team of expert printers, technicians and crafters. Once your design has been submitted into our online interface, technicians check it thoroughly to ensure it will look perfect once printed. Next, your design is printed onto neoprene fabric. This durable and supportive material makes the ideal choice for a comfortable and professional desk pad. We print deep into the fibres, creating a long-lasting finish that will not rub away. Finally, your pad is cut to size and shipped off to its new home.
Your deskpad is made from strong and durable neoprene fabric. This is a hardy material that can be cleaned with either a damp cloth or a more vigorous hand wash. If you want to iron it, we recommend a cool heat or up to 120 degrees C. Please ensure your iron is clean. If you are in any doubt, simply place a clean cloth in between the mat and the iron.
When designing your custom desk mat, UK printed to order, please take into consideration its size and orientation. Measuring 65cm x 52cm x 3mm, this is a large rectangle with a very generous amount of surface for your to print on. We print edge to edge, so you can upload a whole piece of artwork without worrying about losing any important details. You could print a single image, or even a repeat pattern. If you are looking to upload a photograph, landscape or panoramic images will look simply stunning.

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?
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)
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.
