How Your Jigsaw Coasters Are Printed And Made
Your jigsaw coasters are printed and cut to order in the Contrado studio in London. Once you upload your design in the online interface, our team carefully check it to ensure it will look perfect once printed. Your artwork is then printed into the surface of the wooden face. Our specialist printing method penetrates the wood, assuring your design is long-lasting and will not peel away. The glossy finish is added to the wood, which not only looks gorgeous, but also helps to protect your design. Next, the coaster puzzle is hand cut, which gives it a unique and authentic edge. Once complete, each piece can be used as an individual coaster, or all 4 pieces can be connected to create a stunning piece of art.
If you find your coasters get a little dirty or dusty over time, simply wipe the glossy surface clean with a damp cloth.
Each piece of the jigsaw coasters measures 9-10cm, and when put together, the whole puzzle is 19cm square. This is a generous size for create highly detailed and colourful designs. Or even photography and text. The glossy finish lends itself well to vibrant prints and bold colours. It is also important to consider that, as the jigsaws are made to order, the lines you see in the online preview are somewhat of an approximation. We always recommend allowing a few millimetres on all sides for cutting. If you require any assistance with this, please do not hesitate to contact our customer service team, who will be able to advise you further.

Frequently asked questions:
How big are the coasters?
When taken apart, each individual coaster measures 9-10cm. When your coasters are placed together to create a whole piece, it measures a total of 19cm square. The coasters are 3mm thick.
Are the coasters heat protected?
Made from high quality wood and a durable cork back, your coasters are given a glossy finish once printed. This ensures that your coasters can withstand temperatures of up to 150°C.
What will my puzzle look like?
Upload your design onto the interface and it will be printed onto the high quality wood. The whole piece is then hand cut to make a 4 piece puzzle. Each piece can be used as a coaster.
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.
