Leather Sample Swatches for Leather Printing
We are now able to offer leather printing on a variety of leathers, thanks to our new state-of-the-art leather printing technology. This allows us to print onto numerous different leathers with amazing colour reproduction and fine detailing up to 2 pt. Each of our leathers has a different thickness, handle or texture, yet each and every one of them looks visually stunning once printed.
We don't expect you to just take our word for it though, which is why we have introduced our leather sample swatches. This is a pack of leather swatches that are 5.5 cm x 5.5 cm (that's 2 inches squared) printed with the classic Contrado sample design which shows both fine and solid details, a variety of colours that are vibrant, rich dark, bright and striking to give you as much variety as possible. This is the best way to show you exactly what to expect and to help you make the right choice.
With our leather swatches, you can also not only see the surface textures and the handle of each material, but you can touch it for yourself. You can make a fully informed decision with our leather sample swatches, before committing to ordering an entire project worth of material.

When you receive your leather swatches, you'll see the name of each leather, which can be used to look up each leather on our website to make for easier ordering. Just enter the name into the search bar on the list of our whole range to see the properties, uses and material information.

Frequently asked questions:
How are your swatch packs separated?The classic swatch pack includes the man-made materials, the natural has only the naturals, and the paper only the papers. The leather swatch pack contains only the leathers, as we do offer vegan-friendly leatherette options, we wouldn't want to put them in the same packaging as the leather swatches.
Are all of your leathers in the swatch pack?All of the leathers that we currently offer are included in the swatch pack, as we introduce more and more leathers they will be added into new swatch pack versions. We try to ensure that every material is included in the packs at all times, and the date your pack was printed, along with the version number, will be displayed on the leather sample swatches packaging. If you have any questions about your swatch pack please contact our customer service team via chat, who will be happy to assist you.
Why are the leather packs smaller?The leather swatches are smaller for a number of reasons. Leather is a much more expensive material, which contributes to this greatly. If we were to create the leather swatches in the same size we'd have to charge more for them. Also, there are limitations to the maximum sizes of each leather we use, dependant on the size of the animal. Smaller leather sample swatches are easier to create.
