How Your Oilcloth Tablecloth UK is Made

Oilcloth tablecloths, UK made are all created by hand. Your design or artwork is printed onto the oilcloth fabric first, which ensures full edge to edge colour printing. Once printed, in full colour using high-quality, eco-friendly inks, a skilled craftsman will cut your custom printed vinyl tablecloths to size. All hemming and stitching is done by our expert seamstresses.

Care Instructions

Wipe clean with a damp soapy sponge or cloth. Do not machine wash. You can iron the reverse side on a low heat if necessary but you shouldn't need to.

  • Wipe Down
  • No Soak

Design Tips

When you create your custom printed vinyl tablecloth, you need to bear in mind that some of the patterns will be on the drape rather than actually on the table. If you have a focal point of your design or artwork, it would be wise to make sure that this is more central in your design, or on a part of the wipeable tablecloth which will sit on the table top itself.

Frequently asked questions:

What is Oilcloth?

Oilcloth was originally a cotton fabric which was rubbed with linseed oil which created a water resistant fabric. This was commonly used for outerwear such as jackets and coats. Our oilcloth is made from cotton half panama, which creates a material which is 100% waterproof, with a long lifespan.

Aren't tablecloth tops usually shiny and slippery?

Often they are, but our Oilcloth Matte fabric is semi-gloss. This means it stays smoother even after a great deal of use, and it has a matte chic finish. It has a slight sheen to it, however it doesn't have that slippery slidy finish you can get with some tablecloths.

What does the backing feel like?

The base of the fabric is a cotton, it is woven and the back of the tablecloth is highly textured. Some of this weave does impress throguh to the face, giving it a tactile look, however the front is very smooth.

Print Guideline

  • DPI-Print Guideline Icon

    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.

  • Jpeg-Tiff Print Guideline Icon

    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.

  • RGB-CMYK Print Guideline Icon

    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).

  • Fill Bleed Areas ICON

    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.

  • Transfer-Print Guideline Icon

    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.

  • Pattern Alignment Across Seams ICON

    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.

  • print label option icon

    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.

  • Eco friendly Printing

    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.
