We endeavour to get your products to you on the timings that you request. We have an express and standard delivery service. There are flexible delivery options which we are able to work with (split deliveries, palletised options, deliveries to multiple locations).
Lead time depends on the complexity of the order and the chosen shipping method. It can range from anything from 10 days to 12 weeks but the majority are between 2 – 4 weeks from all approvals.
We can print up 7 colours as a standard. In some cases we can print up to 12 colours, please ask our team of experts to know more. We can print digitally so you can have a more photographic detail in the print. We can also print half tones of the design so you can get tonal effects.
Basically 1 solid colour in your artwork is 1 screen, so 1 printing colour. Please send us your artwork with the quote form so we can provide an accurate quote. If you have grades of colours, we zoom into the design to see if this is a “half tone” or a different colour.
Please send us your artwork and we will try to match your artwork colours. Alternatively, you can end us a physical swatch to match the colour. We recommend sending physical swatches if you want to dye your product to a specific colour. Please note that colours on computer / phone screens differ widely to physical swatches. Please also note that printing on fabric is different to printing on other substrates like ceramics, plastics, paper, card etc.
A pantone chart is available here however be aware that colours displayed on your computer’s screen might differ from reality.
If you require us to match your order dyed to pantone we strongly recommend you send us a physical swatch to match. E.g. a printed card, or a piece of fabric, or a printed paper.
Some prints will be done using differing inks and methods depending on your artwork and the colour of the substrate material. We use environmentally friendly inks which are non-toxic, and REACH compliant.
Artworks must be sent in high resolution format, at least 300-400 pixels (dpi). All colours must be in uncoated pantones (U numbers on the pantone chart). We accept files in: PDF, AI, PSD, TIFF, EPS (note as Jpeg files are a form of compression, they lose resolution each time they are opened and saved. Please do not use jpeg files for reproduction purposes).
Unfortunately we cannot accept low resolution artworks. However we have a graphic design service that can re-draw it at a cost. Just ask your sales manager.
Both methods have advantages depending on the result you are looking for. Screen printing gives a traditional finish, with softer colours and look. Digital is more bright and crisp.Screen printing:
Screen printing uses1 screen per colour. A screen will apply 1 colour and you can print up to 7 colours per project. Screen printing is used to print on all sort of material such as textiles, plastic, paper and latex.Digital printing:
This is a modern process that is monitored by a computer. Images are analysed and converted into a format which can then be printed directly onto the fabric. This process allows to print more detailed artworks. Since there is no screen to be developed prior to printing, it is faster than screen printing however more expensive.

Dead stock are fabric left-overs from previous production that we can use to do handles, pockets, lining etc… as a sustainable company, we make sure nothing is wasted.
