How your Custom Glasses Case is Made
You get to design both the top and bottom of the case, so it's printed all over for maximum impact. We use specialist techniques that fuse the ink deep into the fibres of the shatterproof plastic* creating a long-lasting print that won't peel away or scratch off. The top and bottom are printed individually and hand assembled, so they can have a different design if you wish. A moulded felt lining is inserted, leaving a small purposeful gap between the lining and case, designed to stop the lining from being too tight and breaking when the case is snapped open and shut.
*Please note that the case is made from a shatterproof plastic but if it is dropped from a height or misused then this could cause the hinges to become damaged as these are not shatterproof.
Your shatterproof plastic* hard glasses case can easily be wiped clean with a cloth, should it get dirty. We don't advise using the microfibre cloth however, as this is designed specifically for your glasses and should be kept as clean as possible.
Please be aware that your designs are wrapped around the curved sides of the case, so any design features placed near the edges may be slightly warped. To combat this, we suggest placing important details or text away from the edges. Logos will work best is positioned in the centre and in full view. With every case comes a microfibre cleaning cloth, which can be left plain white or printed with your unique designs. It's cut to size and features the classic serrated edges.

Product delivered fast and matched description. Great.
The colours are fantastic and quality excellent... the cleaning cloth is superb, too. Will be designing more for my new shop!
I bought a glasses case with a design I uploaded; the printed image was very faded in comparison to the original, but decent otherwise, in good resolution.
I wasn’t sure what to expect but was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the case. It arrived quickly and the website was easy to use.
Made a lovely birthday present for my grandad

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.
Please note: As everything we provide is handmade to order, all measurements may vary slightly.
