>Fabric Reality Check! Please allow a degree of shrinkage per fabric due to the processing techniques required to make a great print. The shrinkage degree varies fabric to fabric but can be as much as 8%. Average 2.5 %. We do not use Pantone colours or offer any colour matching but we do have great color ability (we are pretty good/accurate on pantones). There are occasional variations in fabric weave that are a characteristic of textiles and should not be classed as defective unless extreme. Each textile can have minor color variation from one to another. It is unlikely to be a true likeness to compare your screen or your printer output to printed fabric unless you have a calibrated monitor, and there are fabric printing limitations to take into account.
A wonderful memorial gift
My daughter's dog recently passed away. She was quite heart broken. I found your site online and decided to get the fabric to make a pillow. She was very happy to receive the pillow with her Peety printed on the fabric. The tools to design the fabric were easy to use. The ordering was a breeze. The waiting period was short. The quality of the print and fabric were superb. I am pleased to have done business with you. Thanks.
I had a great experience ordering customized print on fabric. They have a strong collection of different types of fabrics, the photos of each on their website are very clear and helpful. After ordering, there's 30 mins to change anything in the order and it was super useful for me. The printing and shipping was so fast. I got my product in 4 days. The quality of printing and fabric itself are excellent. I'm so happy to find Bags of Love and I definitely work with them in the future.
Love the final photo print
High quality product. Outstanding service. Highly recommend this company if you want photos printed on fabric. They have a large selection of fabric and size options.
Very fast shipping!
I placed the order on Sunday night and had my fabric by Wednesday. I was impressed with how quickly Bags of Love was able to process my order. The quality of the printing was well-done. I used photos from Instagram. They came out a little darker, but I think if I had used the originals instead it might have been better. I am happy with my purchase and would use Bags of Love again
We provide 109 fabrics on which to print. Our fabric ranges from cotton to silk and everything in between! Bags of Love textile printing can cover the needs of DIY enthusiasts, designers and advertising agencies that need a print service efficient with fabric on demand. Your custom fabric is made by professional stylists and designers allowing for them to be received within 3 working days.
Our digital textile printing service on cotton, silk, neoprene, polyester and Lycra allows for the transfer of images, logos and text in high definition while keeping the soft and natural fabric. You can choose from 109 different fabrics and the amount is calculated in square inches, yards, centimeters, or meters. Great for printing if you are making cushion covers, tablecloths, custom clothing or costumes.
Simply click the "Start Design" button and choose from the drop-down Fabric Type menu. Next, upload your design, and position and size using our on-line design system. Finally, select "Preview and Buy" to see a final review of your design and input your payment information. You can save your design and come back to it if you would like as well.
We have four finishing options for your fabric order:
As it comes. We cut around your image, leaving a scissor cut uneven white fabric border.
Hem with thread. We can hem your fabric with choice of black or white thread. See below for information on how this affects the size of your print. We offer either a folded hem (single or two fold dependent on the fabric) which uses a straight stitch, and an overlock hem - which stitches over the edge of your material. Some fabrics will work better with one particular hem type, and wont be compatible with the other - for those you will only be given the suitable option. If you see both options, then it's down to you which you would prefer.
Cut on the line. We will cut neatly on the edge of your image. Please be aware, when we cut along the line, we have to cut against the grain of the fabric. This is the standard procedure for fabric cutting. This means that with some fabrics, for example, Georgette and Mulmul, which have a slight wave in them, some fraying will occur. This is unavoidable, as the cut follows the grain of the textile.
All of our fabrics are cut manually by hand, with the utmost care and attention. If your fabric has a slightly uneven look on the edges, or a touch of fraying, this does not indicate a flaw in the textile. It is not always possible to achieve a perfect straight cut with certain fabrics, so please do bare this in mind when it comes to your design. If you have any queries or would like to know about our cutting methods in more detail, please get in touch and we will be more than happy to discuss them with you.
Please be aware that when printing on 100% natural fabrics, colors will appear slightly muted, creating an authentic 'washed out' look. Colors and details still print exquisitely but due to the natural fibers, they are less intense than poly or poly-blends. We suggest increasing the contrast of your image, opting for our poly-blend Silk Sensation or ordering a swatch pack of all of our fabrics for a real hands on feel. This way, you can clearly see how colors turn out on different materials.
We have a full service cut and sew operation here at Contrado, the home of Bags of Love. For these fabric prints we can add a hem if you wish for a small charge. We create a small one or two fold hem that typically uses 5 to 20mm of material depending on the thickness of the fabric. For example you could order 39inx39in, so expect your fabric to be approx. 38.8inx38.8in after hemming (please allow for hem and shrinkage). The thicker the fabric the bigger the hem will be. We have black or white thread that you can choose from. On our silk and other light woven fabrics, one hemmed edge will be straight (vertically down the roll) and the other will be slightly rippled.
The hemming material allowances are as follows and you need to make your print bigger to accommodate the hem:
All of these approximate and can vary, included with shrinkage it can mean a fairly significant difference to ordered width.
Please be aware that for hemming your fabric´s dimensions need to be at least 11.81in x 11.81in (30cm x 30cm).
If you would like to have an image tile-repeated over the fabric, just correctly size the image and we print it in the given ordered print area. We have a tiling tool that will automate your tiles in half drop, mirror and repeat styles - all made at the dimension you need on just the right amount of fabric you need. The patterns are generated in our preview so you can do them live and see the results before you buy.
As we hand-make our items, slight deviations are possible when centering your logo. Therefore we would recommend to repeat your logo with our design tool.
We also offer custom-sized Fabric Print Samples on 109 different textiles which you can print with your design.
*3 year guarantee on fabric structure on all materials. 3 year print guarantee on dye sublimation printing for permanent color (excludes natural fibers printed with pigment)
If you can’t decide on which photo to use, you can upload multiple images and create a photo collage. This can be done using one of our pre-set montage templates, or you can create your own entirely from scratch. It’s super easy to do and the possibilities are endless.
Step 1 – Click the start design button & select your product options.
Step 2 – Go to the ‘Images & Text Tools’ tab, click the ‘add images/Text’ button on your product & ‘Select Images to Upload’ or use the Facebook/Instagram tabs.
Step 3 – Choose the images you want to use for your collage, upload & select them from the uploaded photos list.
Step 4 – Click ‘Create montage’ & select your collage style.
Step 5 – Add the collage to your design.
With our latest technology dye sublimation process, you will get rich deep and intensely accurate color reproduction. Our advanced technology including digital pigment printing on cotton and silks is producing stunning results for all customer types. The processes we use for fabric printing are clean, low waste, color fast and kinder to the environment than many other techniques.
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, preventing any interpolation. Our design interface will have a quality marker next to the design that you have uploaded, this will change color using a traffic light system and display a message. The message will let you know if the resolution is too low or if you have a good quality image.
When you upload your design our system will automatically scale it to fit your chosen fabric dimensions. In the ‘Product Image’ tab, the displayed dimensions under ‘Print Size’ will show the dimensions of the piece of fabric that you are ordering. For image/design dimensions you need to see the ‘Images & Text Tools’ tab. You can see and edit the dimensions of the image under the quality information next to the thumbnail.
We advise providing images in the RGB color space. Specifically using the sRGB image profile, to achieve best color 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)
For most of our fabrics, there is no limit on the length of the fabric that you can order. We have a preview design window set up to 10 yds max to visualize the print, but that's not a print limit. If you'd like to order more, increase the quantity (x2 for 20 yds or x4 for 40 yds for e.g.) and then you can order as much as you'd like, with a built in automatic volume discount too. The maximum print width of each fabric can be found on the individual fabric pages or in our design interface.
Yes, that might help you! Always incorporate any extra space or borders into your purchased fabric size. We trim squarely around fabric samples and fabric prints, leaving approximately 0.2" white space. Cutting neatly on the line has an additional fee.
Crocking, which is fading along the creases, often after washing or heavy use, occurs when you digitally print on natural fabrics - more so when dark or dense colors are used. It can be minimized by using a cool hand wash instead of machine washing as the tumbling of the machine is the main cause of this. To avoid entirely, we would advise using a poly fabric.
Our organic fabrics do not have any coatings that the non-organic fabrics have. This means the ink absorbs into the fibers, reducing the color strength slightly (by approx. -40%). For super-strong colors, we recommend a non-organic natural fabric.
Unfortunately not; we like to 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 transfer paper to order, and if you have access to a heat press you can press your own fabrics easily.
For multi-colored or very detailed files we recommend using a tiff format, but they must be flattened. For simple colors and low detail files, a jpeg is fine.
Just like many fabric printing processes, there is the potential for shrinkage. Depending on the fabric, please expect and allow between 2-8% shrinkage which you need to plan for in your dimensions. This percentage can vary from print run to print run and between fabrics, so we would advise to order a little more material than you require for your project.
We do not offer to print on both sides of the fabric, as a lot of our fabrics are semi-transparent or have some show through. This wouldn't work with double-sided printing. This is not a service that we offer on any of our fabrics.
At the moment no, our labels are all printed on the same satin fabric. We may introduce more in the future, but for now, this is the best choice. The labels are all cut the same way. You can order the fabric of your choice and make the labels yourself, but we do not cut different fabrics into label format.
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 colors 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 fulfillment. Rather than roll the fabrics, or send them in a tube, we fold them before they are sent out to you. This saves over 150 tubes a week, as well as a lot of space on the delivery van. (For delicate fabrics we ensure to package appropriately).
We work at improving our color profiles all the time. Though rare, it may happen that from one print run to another, and there could be slight color differences, this is normal and part of the process when we are constantly improving. It is extremely unlikely that there will be a huge difference (like orange instead of red for example). Please bear in mind such color variations can be intensified from fabric to fabric due to the varying grains and textures of the fabric. This is due to the construction of the materials as well as the print methods that have to be altered slightly for more delicate, natural textiles.
We have a full Cut & Sew service here at Bags of Love, and are able to hem your fabric prints for a small additional charge. We create a small one- or two-fold hem that typically uses 0.2" to 0.75" (5-20mm) of material, depending on the thickness of the fabric. So, for example, if you want a finished piece of fabric that measures 39.37" x 39.37", you will need to order a size of 39.96" x 39.96" to allow for the hem (on top of that please also allow for shrinkage of min 2%). The thicker the fabric, the bigger the hem will be. You can choose to have your prints hemmed with either Black or White thread. On our silk and other light woven fabrics, one hemmed edge will be straight (vertically down the roll) and the other will be slightly rippled. The hemming material allowances are as follows and you need to make your print bigger to accommodate the hem:
All of our fabrics are cut manually by hand, with the utmost care and attention. If your fabric has a slightly uneven look on the edges or a touch of fraying, this does not indicate a flaw in the textile. It is not always possible to achieve a perfectly straight cut with certain fabrics, so please do bear this in mind when it comes to your design. If you have any queries or would like to know about our cutting methods in more detail, please get in touch and we will be more than happy to discuss them with you.
