How your Custom Made Voile Curtains are Made
Your designs are printed onto the sheer voile fabric using dye sublimation. This is where the inks are fused deep into the fibres to create a vibrant, lasting print. The material is cut to meet your bespoke dimensions, and our seamstresses hem the edges and finish your made to measure net curtains by hand. Please note that if you select a pair of UK net curtains, we print your design onto a large panel of voile fabric and then split it in half. This is so when the curtains are pulled together, your design matches up.
For a width above 150 cm, several panels may need to be stitched together, as the fabric comes on a roll with a maximum width. If this is the case, we'll contact you to confirm before proceeding. We always try to ensure the seam doesn't interrupt your design, but please understand that the seam might be visible.
How to Measure your Curtains
You need to accurately measure the dimensions of the area to see if you need a pair, single panel or multiples. So that you're net curtains aren't flat against the window when pulled to, it's essential to account for ruffles/pleats/fullness. They come with an 8cm pencil pleat heading tape, so measure the width of the window and multiply it by two.
Example: window width is 2m. 2x2 = 4m of fabric.
To avoid disappointment, we recommend an additional 1cm of fabric all around to compensate for hemming and possible fabric shrinkage.
Here's some pointers to design your custom made voile curtains with the best results. If you're looking for an alternative room divider, solid block colour designs make your curtains transparent and are ideal for attaching to beams and helping to create a dynamic room arrangement. For more privacy, choose designs that have a lot of details and bold prints. They will still be sheer and semi-transparent, but shapes will not be as visible.
Due to the sheerness of the fabric, colours are muted but details are still crisp well defined. The front of your custom made voile curtains produces more saturated colours compared to the back.

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.
