About Your Printed Table Runner
Your custom table runner is printed on our woven Archway twill fabric. This textile was chosen thanks to its durable nature and superior print quality. The off white base tone contrasts beautifully with colours and the print detail is very fine. This makes it ideal for designs with intricate patterns and detailing. It is also a soft and comfortable fabric, making it a pleasure to run your hands along. When you design your printed table runner, you can choose from 2 different sizes. Every runner is printed by our team of technicians, before being finished by seamstresses. You can care for your table runner easily by washing it on a 30°c cycle. This is ideal as it doesn't matter if there is the odd spill. Your designs are printed in full colour, edge to edge, which won't crack even after washing.

How Your Printed Table Runner Is Printed And Made
Completely handmade to order in London, your table runner is expertly crafted. Printed in full colour by our team of technicians who print your designs deep into the fibres of the fabric, creating a long-lasting finish. Your runner is cut by hand by skilled craftsman, before being handed over to seamstresses who hem and finish your runner to perfection. The table runners have true authenticity about them, which will make you want to use them every day.
Your table runner is made from Archway twill fabric. This is a hardy and durable fabric that can be cleaned in the washing machine on a 30°c cycle. We recommend drying your runner flat or you could iron using a cool to medium setting.
When creating the design for your table runner, it is important to keep in mind the slight bleed area. Once your runner is printed, roughly half an inch of the twill fabric is folded over at the edges. This is to create a neat and stylish hem. With this in mind, please consider your final design. If there are any important details right at the edges of your design, try and incorporate the bleed area around them.

Frequently asked questions:
What is the printed table runner made from?

Your design will be printed onto the fabric in a stunning edge to edge print with a hand sewn hem. Select the size of your table runner and see your art come to life in vivid HD print and crystal clear definition.

Your table will look fresh and funky when it has one of our designer table runners draped over it. Handmade in London and designed by the #ContradoCreatives.
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.
