How your Pet Food Mat is Made
Expertly handmade to order in London, UK, by our team of skilled technicians, your dog & cat food mat is a built to be a long lasting addition to your home. Your designs are printed using a specialist process that fuses the inks deep into the fibres of the hardwearing woven material. Cut to size and backed onto tough, non-slip 2mm thick rubber, it's an exceptional piece of craftsmanship that is both practical and stunning to look at. The water absorbency protects your floor from spillages, and if it does get too dirty, it's safe to put in the washing machine.
Luckily for you, your custom pet food mat can be machine washed at 30°c, ideal for getting out tougher stains. For regular maintenance, simply wipe or hose down. They are water absorbent so can handle a damp cloth or a spray with water.
Pet Bowl Mat Design Tips
When designing, please bear in mind the difference between the small pet mat and the larger pet mats. The small size is printed edge-to-edge, and has rounded corners, whereas the other 3 sizes have right angled corners and a black border, formed by the rubber backing. Within the design interface you'll be able to see exactly how your designs look on the mats, to ensure it's exactly how you want it. A favourite use is for branding purposes, which is especially suited to pet grooming salons, dog kennels, cat sanctuaries and other animal orientated establishments.

Frequently asked questions:
Will the print fade over time?
We use a specialist process that bonds the ink deep into the material fibres, so your designs won't peel or crack over time with regular use and washing. We offer a two-year guarantee on the print. This process is proven to last longer without fading than traditional printing methods.
Are they machine washable?
Yes, and they're super hygienic too. Hose down or machine wash at 30°c for the best results, and hang out to dry or dry flat. The mats are water absorbent, so ideal for messy pups and kittens.
Do the different sizes look different?
The small pet blanket is slightly different to the L, XL and XXL. The small one has rounded corners and is printed edge-to-edge, whilst the other 3 sizes have corners and a black border.

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.
