About Your Room Divider Screen
Lovingly handmade to order, your canvas and wooden screen dividers are a stylish and innovative way to generate a dynamic composition and layout. Printed on both sides with the same or different design, the canvas is stretched across panels placed slightly apart, creating natural 'invisible' hinges. The deliberate gap inbetween the wooden panels allows your screen to fold concertina style.
Design decorative room dividers to establish luxury changing space in your dressing room, or use them as backdrops for your business' exhibition stall. We can make them with either 2, 3 or 4 panels, all equally as captivating. Large open spaces can often feel empty and hollow, but with these amazing folding screens you can add depth and intrigue.

How your Custom Folding Screen is Made
Sustainability is an important value of ours, so we only use responsibly sourced wood and water-based inks to make your screen. The dye sublimation printing process fuses the ink deep into the canvas fibres. One large sheet of printed canvas is manually attached to hand built frames, making sure they're placed slightly apart. This creates a natural 'invisible' hinge formed by the canvas. Printed on both sides and finished with small Nickel rivets on the back, your folding room dividers have a stylish look and feel.
To prevent the print from fading, please do not place your room divider screen in direct sunlight for long periods of time, i.e. placed in front of your window. The canvas is thick and durable, but slightly translucent. This means back light can reveal the wooden frames through your design, even on dark designs, so please take into consideration where you place your screen. Guarantee: 10 year guarantee on fabric & build structure. 2-3 year guarantee on print is care instructions are followed.
As previously mentioned, some light will shine through from the back even if your design is dark. As decorative room dividers for the home, try to avoid placing them directly in front of a window and use them as the focus of the room instead. Take a trip to the Orient with traditionally printed Chinese folding room dividers, a style that emanates culture and class. Or celebrate the colours of the rainbow with a bold abstract print bursting with energy and fervor.
The large printing space lends your room divider screen well to event backdrops and exhibition stands. With your logo emblazoned on the front, delegates will have a hard job passing by your stall without stopping.
How does this product enhance my...
For a luxury addition to your bedroom, create a room divider screen that acts as your personal changing area. Glamorous and reminiscent of old school Hollywood movies, it instantly changes the dynamic of a room. You can also use them to add depth and structure to open plan rooms, creating a sense of layout. What's more, they're lightweight so you can easily re-imagine your decor without hassle.
For events or boutique bars, decorative room dividers can be used to establish VIP areas, giving important guests added privacy in a stylish way. Or if you're a salon owner, use a custom divider to discreetly separate staff and customer areas. The semi-translucent fabric could work in your favour if photography is your passion. The back light shining through creates dramatic shadows, allowing you to play with lighting effects.

Frequently asked questions:
How do you create 'invisible' hinges?
When we attach the printed canvas to the wooden frame, we leave a small gap between the panels so the canvas can fold in between, creating these 'invisible' hinges.
Are they printed both sides?
Yes, we print your unique designs on both sides, but if placed in a position with backing light, the wooden frames will be slightly visible through the canvas.
Is there a guarantee with my room divider?
There is a 10 year guarantee on the fabric and build structure, and a 2-3 year guarantee on the print if all care instructions are followed and not placed in direct sunlight.
Browse Designer Room Screens
Our #ContradoCreative artists have designed a range of original room screens, printed with their unique artwork. They're bold, striking and just what your open space needs.
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.
