Working with knit is a sheer joy and there are so many options you can make with it. Our innovative knit material process allows us to print deep into the fibers of fabric, fusing the ink and creating a vibrant and permanent print.

At Bags of Love, you can choose not only the type of knit you want, but also the dimensions and the finish. There are several different kinds of knitted textile, including Lycra, jersey, lace, and fleece. A knit characteristically is soft and stretchy, thanks to its construction. The yarn is formed into an interconnecting loop construction, which causes it to stretch significantly along the weft. Some knits have a very good 4-way stretch. Our selection includes both, and all have very good recovery rates, so your design will always return to normal once the fabric is relaxed.

How To Care For Your Knit Fabric

Knits are generally very easy to care for. When you design your own knit fabric with us, you can be assured that you will receive a gorgeous, high quality fabric that will stand the test of time. We do have some care recommendations, that, if followed, will preserve the print and construction of your textile. Although knits are soft, they are surprisingly hardy. The print will not fade as long as it is washed on a cool and delicate cycle (never above 30 degrees C). We also recommend allowing your knits to drip dry. If you need to iron them, please use a low/cool setting. If in any doubt, you can take your fabric to a specialist dry cleaner or get in touch with us via the online chat and we will be more than happy to help you further. 
 

What Can I Make With My Knit Fabric?

The opportunities are almost endless. Knits are a wonderful fabric for so many different kinds of clothing. Create custom printed knit fabric and enjoy a completely bespoke wardrobe. Jersey fabrics are perfect for making stylish, casual clothing such as t-shirts, vests and tunic dresses. Try the slub jersey or the loose knit for something a little different. For a classic sweatshirt or hoodie, our vintage loop back jersey has a lovely retro vibe. How about designing a sexy bodycon dress or skirt? Crush velour makes a great choice. Browse our range of knits and see which one appeals to you. 


Make a Collage

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.

photo collage

How to add your collage to your product

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.

Hints and Tips

  • The more images you add to your collage the smaller each image will be. Fewer images will be larger and give you more clarity and detail.
  • The more people in an image, the less detail there will be. If you have 10 images of a group of five friends, each person will be smaller than if you have 10 images on just one person.
  • Try to make sure that the longest side of each image is around 3.93". There is a handy ruler built into the design tool to help you with this.
  • Smaller products will not be able to fit as many images as larger ones will.

Specialist methods

Our specialist print technique gives a flawless and bold finish. Every fabric is different, thanks to their construction and their base tone. As such, sometimes the print may look a little different. Colors can range from vibrant and intense to ever so slightly soft and muted, which gives a beautiful effect. Knitted fabrics are special as they stretch. This stretch can cause the designs printed on them to be stretched as well. Our fabrics have a wonderful recovery rate, which means they always spring back into shape. The ink is fused deep into the fibers, so your design will not rub or fade away. 

Depending on how you plan to use your knit fabric, you can choose how you want the edges to be finished:

  • As it comes. We roughly cut around your image, leaving a simple scissor cut (perhaps uneven white fabric border).
  • Hem with thread. We can hem your fabric with a choice of black or white thread. Please allow 1-2 days additional production time. See below for information on how hemming affects the size of your print.
  • Cut on the line. We neatly and precisely cut on the edge of your image.

If you would like your textile to be finished with a hem, please keep these measurements in mind and factor them into your final dimensions:

  • Light fabrics: we use 0.23"-0.31" in the hem (2 fold), so your width/height will be minus 0.47"-0.63"
  • Medium fabrics that fray: we use 0.59"-0.78" in the hem (2 fold) so your width/height will be minus 1.38"-1.57"
  • Stiff/heavy/no-fray fabrics: we use 0.59"-0.78" in the hem (1 fold) so width/height will be minus 1.38"-1.57"
