How Coaster Printing UK is Made
Coaster printing, UK handmade to order, is a speciality of ours, which has been honed and perfected over several years. Each coaster is handmade by our team of expert craftsmen, to ensure they are unique and completely customised. Your designs are beautifully printed into the material of the coasters. Our specialist technique means you can design your own coasters with as much detail as you want. The print is super sharp, HD quality, so fine lines and details are depicted beautifully. The base of your new coasters is made from a hard and durable wood, which will protect the surface of your tables. The face of your coasters is heat resistant and super glossy. This allows you to place both hot and cold items on them.
These custom coasters UK made are easy to care for and maintain. The highly glossy surface can be wiped down with a damp cloth, without compromising the print.
Creating designs for custom printed coasters is a lot of fun, as you have the power to print pretty much anything you want. This homeware staple is given a fresh lease of life thanks to our printing methods. Do you have a specific decor style, that is difficult to find complementary products for from the shops? Choose a print, pattern or even your own original artwork, and enjoy homeware made just for you. If you enjoy family dinners, where everyone has their own seat around the table, create a design for each individual person. Forget cheesy personalised designs, work your creativity and include bespoke artwork catered for each person. These can also include their name, and even a photo if you wish.

Great, quick turnaround which is a must!
Fast service, excellent printing quality and finishing. I could not be happier.
The quality of both sets of mugs and coasters are next to none. Very good reproduction of my design onto top quality products. Easy online system to upload your images/designs. Quick delivery within the advised timescales
We're very pleased with them. We bought personalised (canal-themed) place mats earlier in the year which proved to be high quality, practical and exactly what we wanted, so decided to order coasters to accompany them. We've shown them off to all visitors, and at least one person has decided to create something personal too.
Images sharp and product good quality. Fast turn around from order to delivery. Coasters good value.
My designs printed really well, bright colours and clear lines. Coasters are good quality. Arrived very quickly. Hope to get more printed soon.
I am a fairly recent account holder but there’s an excitement when a package arrives. I’m never disappointed. The quality, the speed of production and the service - absolutely brilliant.

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.
Please note: As everything we provide is handmade to order, all measurements may vary slightly.
