    Our printed twill fabrics combine the unique weave with your own design.

    Some are woven using a plain twill weave, while others have a diagonal twill weave, so you can find the right one for your creative project. Choose from a variety of natural fabrics as well synthetic textiles to have printed. Twill printing uses dye sublimation, which fuses the ink deep into the fibers so you know your design will be rich and long-lasting. These tightly woven fabrics can serve a variety of purposes from apparel making to upholstery.

    What You Can Make With Printed Twill Fabric

    Due to the nice balance between soft and sturdy, twill printing is a popular choice for making cushions. It's suitable for curtains too, but we'd suggest attaching a blackout lining as these fabrics do let some light shine through. You could also make a bolster cushion or doorstop to add a touch of elegance to everyday household items. Our printed silk twill is a super lightweight option that's perfect for dressmaking and accessories. Or, go in the opposite direction with printed cotton twill fabric, like heavyweight Bull Denim for something extra sturdy.

    Printed to order

    We use innovative techniques that fuse the inks deep into the fibers. This ensures your design won't peel away or scratch off, as it's printed directly into the twill fabric, not on top. Even though these fabrics have a distinctive weave pattern that lets in a little bit of light, this doesn't affect your design, and details are printed to perfection. For silk twill, we use our new release printing technology, infusing the fabric with ink for color depth and higher wash allowance.

    *If you need the edges finished to a certain degree, then please select one of the four options in the design interface: cut on the line for precision, hemmed with white thread, hemmed with black thread or simply left as it is so you can finish it at home.


    Print Guideline

    • DPI-Print Guideline Icon

      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, 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.

    • scaling-Print Guideline Icon

      How will my image scale?

      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.

    • RGB-CMYK Print Guideline Icon

      Which color model should I choose? RGB or CMYK?

      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)

    • Print-Roll Length Fabric Guide Icon

      Maximum dimensions

      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.

    • Borders-Print Guideline Icon

      Do I need to incorporate white space within my design if I want a border or some cutting space?

      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-Print Guideline Icon

      What is crocking and why might it occur?

      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.

    • organics-Print Guideline Icon

      Why do my colors appear lighter on organic fabrics?

      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.

    • Transfer-Print Guideline Icon

      Do you print on fabric a customer supplies?

      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.

    • Jpeg-Tiff Print Guideline Icon

      Should I save my file as a TIFF or JPEG?

      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.

    • Shrinkage-Print Guideline Icon

      What is the situation with material shrinkage?

      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.

    • Print-Both Sides Print Guideline Icon

      Can I print on both sides of the fabric?

      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.

    • Labels-Print Guideline Icon

      Can I order labels in another fabric? Would you cut them as you do with the normal fabric labels?

      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.

    • Eco friendly Printing

      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 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).

    • colour palette

      Why are there slight color differences between my orders?

      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.

    Sizing For Hemming And Shrinkage

    Hemming Options ICON

    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:

    • Light Fabrics (0.59oz-2.95oz): For silks and other light fabrics, we use 0.24" - 0.32" / 6mm-8mm in the hem (2 fold), so overall width/height will be minus 0.48"-0.56""/ 12-16mm
    • Medium Fabrics (2.98oz-5.90oz): For medium-weight fabrics that fray, we use 0.5 - 0.75" / 15-20mm in the hem (2 fold) so overall width/height will be minus 1.4" - 1.6" / 35-40mm
    • Stiff/Heavy/No-fray fabrics: we use 0.5 - 0.75" / 15-20mm in the hem (1 fold) so overall width/height will be minus 1.5" / 35-40mm
    All of these measurements are approximate and can vary. Including with shrinkage, it can mean a fairly significant difference to ordered dimensions, so please plan your print accordingly. Depending on how open the weave is, our fabric can shrink anywhere from 2% to 8% with the average being 2.5%.

    How Would you Like the Edge?

    We have four finishing options for your fabric order: 
    • As it comes. We cut around your image, leaving a simply 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 of additional production time. See below for information on how hemming affects the size of your print. We offer an overlock hem, as well as a folded hem (one or two fold depending on the fabric) however not all fabrics are suited to both hem types. If you can see both options, it means both are suitable, and you will be able to choose whichever you prefer.
    • Cut on the line. We will cut neatly on the edge of your design. This means that if you have a border around your design we will cut around that border, if your design takes the whole space of the fabric, then we will neatly cut around the edge of that 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 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.
