About Your Suitcase Straps
These custom suitcase straps are a travel essential, as they help prevent your case from coming open whilst ensuring it's easy to identify among a sea of bags. The strap is adjustable, with the maximum length being 190cm, so your bespoke straps for suitcases can be tailored to fit varied bag sizes. They can be used for personal use or for business trips, providing an extra way to promote your brand.

The printable area is only 35cm of the 190cm strap, as we repeat your design all over on both sides. This is because your design should be seen from all angles, and depending on how you've wrapped it around your case. If you've printed your name, it's important this is visible at all times, so if it's repeated, it's more distinguishable.
Using specialist dye sublimation, the inks are bonded to the polyester webbing material, creating a long-lasting print that won't peel or scratch off. It's cut to size and finished by hand, including the hemming and buckle attachment.
We don't advise putting your strap in the wash, but should it get dirty from the baggage claim conveyor belt or the airplane hold, clean by hand using a damp soapy cloth. If it gets particularly dirty, wait until dry so the dirt can harden and it can be brushed off.
We suggest choosing vibrant patterns and bold prints to ensure your case is as distinctive as possible. The larger the subject, the easier it will be to see, so avoid pictures with small details as these won't be clear against the textured, grainy webbing. For text based designs, print one name or one word so it can be identified from far away.

Frequently asked questions:
Are my suitcase straps secure?
They're made from strong, hardwearing polyester webbing, and feature a secure buckle fastening. The adjustable straps mean you can pull them tight to securely fit around your case.
Are they printed all over?
Yes, your custom straps for suitcases are printed on both sides with your design repeated all over. The printable area is 35cm, and this pattern is repeated for distinctive style.
Can I print small designs?
The textured webbing is quite grainy so small details won't show clearly, defeating the point of these easy to identify suitcase straps. Designs with large patterns and motifs work best.

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.
