How Your Printed Placemats are Made
Your custom placemats are expertly handmade to order individually, allowing you to print a different design on each mat. Using a specialist process, we can guarantee a permanent print, as the inks are fused deep into the surface so your unique designs won't fade over time. Being a non-porous surface, the printed tablemats are incredibly smooth and hygienic, so bacteria doesn't build up. The dark hardwood back makes them more hygienic no cork or baize is used that can leave fibres on your dining table.
The glossy surface is easy to wipe clean, so just use a damp cloth to remove any stains. Do not put in the dishwasher.
Tips to Design Your Own Placemats
We print your designs edge-to-edge in rich, high definition colour, so vibrant patterns and images with intricate details work extremely well. For home use, you can add text to feature family members' name so everyone has a designated seat at the dining table. For restaurants, this is an ideal place to extend brand awareness, so design your own placemats featuring the logo and/or pictures of your best signature dishes so tantalise tastebuds.
Excellent finish and clear images. Speedy delivery. Thanks so much.

Job completed and delivered within 7 days of order. Placemats were gorgeous. I regret that I didn't spend more time trying to centre some of the photos. However, was a costly exercise

Beautiful product. Fast turnaround.
We received some beautiful placemats with our holiday photos from Norfolk Island (Australia). The finish is lovely and the only thing I would change is to add cork backing. These would have received 5 stars, except for the price, which was very expensive for 8 placemats.

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?
We advise providing images in the RGB colour space. Specifically using the sRGB image profile, to achieve best colour results.What does this mean? In your editing software choose RGB as the working space, and assign the image profile as sRGB (full name sRGB IEC61966-2.1)
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 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 where we conduct all the printing, production and fulfilment.
Please note: As everything we provide is handmade to order, all measurements may vary slightly.
