How Your Custom Leather Bookmarks Are Made
A skilled team of craftsmen and print technicians is entrusted with our custom bookmark printing. It starts with you uploading your designs onto the online interface. All custom leather bookmarks are made to order in the Contrado studio. Once your designs have been uploaded into the system, the technicians get straight to work. The printed leather is made first. Your designs are digitally printed onto the leather, which is then passed onto the cutting team. The bookmarks are carefully cut from the printed leather using a large cutting press. This piece is then bonded and hand stitched with a piece of coloured leather, which you would have chosen during the design process. The stitching around the edges of the bookmark adds a beautifully authentic touch. The process of creating custom leather bookmarks is a traditional craft which we are proud to continue.
The Nappa leather is sourced via Italian tanneries for printing and finishing in our own in-house atelier studio. This work is by hand and to order. As a full grain, bovine-calf leather, it is graded to the highest level for print and manufacturing quality.
Your custom leather bookmarks are made from real leather or an impressive leatherette material. To ensure it always looks it best, we recommend keeping your bookmarks out of direct sunlight for overly long periods of time. You can wipe your bookmarks with a cloth if they get a little dusty or dirty. It is important to note that leather is a natural material, and as such some small pockmarks or grains might be visible. This is normal and unavoidable, as they are natural features of the leather. Over time, as with any leather, small creases may arise on the surface. This adds to the leather's natural charm.
To ensure the leather print on your product is as durable as possible, we’ve worked hard refining our printing process and craftsmanship. As leather has a natural textured surface you may notice small surface differences, common to natural leather and the printing. All leathers age naturally according to the usage, and this can cause the print to wrinkle or fade slightly over time. It is possible the base colour may show through the leather as it ages with wear. When not in use we recommend storing your product in a protective dust bag or box to keep your product looking its best. • Avoid prolonged exposure to extreme heat, sunlight, water, and chemical cleaners to maintain a bright and long-lasting print. • Avoid contact with light coloured fabrics or upholstery as the colour may transfer. • Whilst a light rain shower is unlikely to harm, we recommend protecting from rain. Should your product get wet, allow to dry naturally away from direct heat. • To clean surface wipe only with a damp lint free cotton cloth.
When you design your own bookmark, it is important to consider the size and orientation of the product. They measure 5 x 18cm, making them relatively long and slim. However, bookmark printing is possible in portrait and landscape. The portrait orientation and size lends itself to bold patterns and typography. Use the design interface to ensure your artwork is positioned perfectly, without any important details lost to the edges. Landscape images can work nicely, when positioned correctly. If you are in any doubt about how your design will look, do not hesitate to get in touch for assistance.
