How Your Seat Pads UK Made Are Created
Your new custom made seat cushions for chairs are handmade to order. We use a firm, high quality upholstery foam, that moulds to your shape, creating a truly comfortable seat. Your design is printed onto the luxurious suede vision fabric. We chose this particular material because of its superior print quality and its opulent handle. The ink penetrates deep into the fibres of the fabric, showcasing fine lines and details perfectly. You can choose from 10 colours for the gusset and create a different design for the front and back. The fabric is printed by skilled technicians and then sewn together by our team of expert seamstresses. A concealed zip is added to make the cover easy to remove and wash.
The seat pad cushions have a cover that is zipped. This makes it very easy to remove the cover from the pad and clean it. This can be done in a washing machine at 30 degrees. Alternatively, it can be wiped clean.
These seat pads are perfect for indoor and outdoor furniture. If you are looking to jazz up your dining set or your garden set, then these seat pads UK printed and made are ideal. For dining chairs, we love using more dramatic prints and colours, to set the mood. Kitchen designs for your set pads look great when the colours are kept colourful and quirky, especially if it is a family kitchen. Looking to update your garden furniture? Create designs based on folklore and add an ethereal touch to your outdoor space. We recommend selecting a gusset colour that best complements your designs.

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.
