About Your Printed Napkins
Your new hand-printed napkins are a beautiful piece of homeware that you will cherish for years to come. Your custom napkins UK printed and made are available in 2 different custom fabrics. Choose between the 100% cotton option or the peached poly option. The 100% cotton has a chic matt finish and a slightly stiffer handle. This makes it wonderful at holding shapes - ideal for more formal occasions. The peached poly napkins have a brilliant white base tone, which makes colours pop and leap off of the fabric. The textile has a slight sheen to it, which bounces light prettily off of the surface. This version is silky smooth and durable. Your designs are printed deep into the fibres of the fabric, creating a gorgeous, long-lasting print. Available in multipacks of 2, 4, 6, 8, 10 all the way to 50 and beyond.

How Your Printed Napkins Are Printed And Made
Handmade in London by our team of skilled craftsmen and seamstresses, your custom napkins UK made are unique, stylish and completely customised. Upload your designs onto the online interface and technicians will print your designs onto one side of your chosen fabric. Next, your napkins are passed onto the seamstresses who carefully cut and hem each napkin by hand, ensuring an expert and custom finish.
Your custom napkins UK made are available in 2 different fabrics; peached poly sheeting and 100% cotton. Both fabrics have slightly different care requirements.
100% Cotton Napkins: Made from 100% real cotton, these napkins can be cleaned on a cold, delicate wash only. To dry, we recommend using a cool tumble setting or simply hang dry. It is safe to use an iron on these serviettes.
Poly Sheeting Napkins: This option is slightly more durable and resilient. You can clean them on a 30°c machine wash and dry on a medium heat tumble setting. Alternatively, you can hang dry. The peached poly sheeting option is also safe to iron.
It is important to consider that your new printed napkins should be designed to include a slight bleed area. As we print edge to edge and hem each napkin, it is important to keep any main features away from the edges. A very small amount of the fabric will be sewn into the hem, so always leave a little additional space around your design.

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.
