We use a soft, cool, breathable fabric that is a dream to sleep on and displays colours and details beautifully. Handmade to order, your well proportioned customised pillowcase has been designed to fit classic pillow sizes. This single slip is printed on the front as standard, or print on both sides for an impressive piece of bedding.

How Pillowcase Printing Works
Everything is handmade to order by our expert print technicians and seamstresses in our London factory. Your unique designs are printed onto our soft fabric using dye sublimation, where the inks are fused deep into the fibres creating a long-lasting print. Edge-to-edge pillowcase printing creates a striking aesthetic. We sew the hems and include the flat insert that you tuck your pillow into in order to conceal it. When you receive your case, you can simply remove your pillow from the existing bedding and give your room an instant refresh.
Remove the case from your pillow and machine wash at 30°c for best results. It's fine to tumble dry but no ironing is required if left flat to dry.
When printing on the reverse side of your case, please be aware of the bleed margin for the flap closure. The part of your design that is positioned within this area will form the flap that you'll use to tuck away the actual pillow. If you have important design features that you want to be constantly visible, make sure these do not fall in this area. Within the design interface, you will be able to see this margin and edit your image accordingly. You'll also see an icon of the pillow that simply indicates which side the opening and flap closure will be on.
Choose contrasting designs for each side so you essentially have two pillow cases in one, ideal for quickly switching up the look and feel of a room. For branding purposes, you can centralise your logo for an instantly recognisable piece of merchandise. All fabric produces exceptional pillowcase printing results, with colours and details showing up clearly.

Frequently asked questions:
Is this just a case without the pillow?
Yes, the pillow padding isn't included, so you can revamp your existing home decor without too much hassle expense. Simply replace your existing covers with these ones.
What size is a standard pillow?
Your customised pillow case is 74 x 48cm, which aligns with the standard size for ordinary pillows. Please measure your existing pillow to ensure it will be a nice snug fit.
Can both sides be printed?
For maximum impact, you can print both sides of your case, essentially giving you two designs in one. For a more simplistic approach, simply print the front only and leave the reverse plain white.

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.
