What is Lycra Fabric?

Lycra or Spandex is a synthetic material which has an exceptional amount of stretch. Invented in 1958, and introduced in 1962, it has drastically impacted a lot of the clothing market. Spandex is actually an anagram of the word expands, which is exactly what this amazing material is known for. Lycra has a great number of uses from wrestling and gymnastics apparel, to sportswear, leggings, skirts, underwear and swimsuits. Lycra is also widely used in compression garments, and for cosplay. 


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.

How to add your collage to your product

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 of just one person.
  • Try to make sure that the longest side of each image is around 10 centimetres. 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.

Modern printing

When printing on Lycra we use digital printing methods that are done with environmentally friendly inks to create a permanently bonded, full-colour print onto your chosen fabric. Custom Lycra fabric printing can be finished in a number of ways. From having it sent exactly as it comes from the printer to cut on the line with the white edging removed. Should you prefer you can even opt to have your custom printed Lycra fabric hemmed, using black or white thread and an overlock stitch.
