About Your Instagram Prints
Upload your artwork, designs or photography and create a unique set of prints for all different uses and occasions. Sold in packs of 12, you can choose whether to print the same image on all 12 cards, or a different image on each. Made from a beautifully luxurious and thick 300gsm card, the front of your prints has a smooth and glossy satin face that adds depth and vibrancy to your designs. The back is slightly textured, which makes it an ideal surface for writing on. The stickers are made from 140gsm paper with an adhesive back, boasting sharp outlines and vivid colours. To finish the stylish look of your prints, we present them in a paper slip band to keep them together. The prints can be removed easily by simply sliding the band off. These Instagram prints are a fun and contemporary alternative to standard business cards, thank you cards, printed photos and the like. Our design interface allows you to add special effects such as sepia and black and white. You can create a repeat pattern in different variations as well as add text to make your cards pop.

How Your Instagram Prints Are Made
Your prints are handmade in London by our team of expert technicians, craftsmen and printers. We use a thick, coated card to print your designs on, which is the perfect canvas. For the stickers, we use a 140gsm paper with adhesive backing. Our specialist printing method penetrates the surface of the medium, creating a long-lasting finish that will not peel away. Small details and fine lines have perfect clarity and colours pop off of the satin coated surface. Once your images are printed, they are then cut to size before being packed in sets of 12 and sent straight to your door. Each print will have a barcode to identify each order. This will not affect how beautiful your Instagram prints are.
The cards are made from a thick and heavyweight paper. The satin coated front of the card can be wiped clean should it get dirty, however please keep away from water and fire where you can to avoid damage.
Take advantage of the 5mm white border and use it as a picture frame to make your designs pop. The image size is 91 x 91mm, which is the perfect size for a single image. If you are looking to create a collage, this would look great too, but the details will be slightly smaller as more images fight for space. To make a real impact, opt for one design per card and you will be able to see every line, detail and shadow with perfect clarity. Why not use the cards to print a series of your work? Not only will this look powerful, but you could use it as a unique marketing tool.

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.
