To print on Neoprene fabric UK, we back it onto a white, jersey poly face that has a slight sheen.
This was my first order of Scuba which I am using to produce game maps. The size allowed me to print them three abreast and the accuracy of the design tools meant I could produce what I needed without waste, brilliant. I wish you could zoom into the layout more, but that's a very minor gripe.
Enlarged neoprene custom map from my War of the Ring boardgame, excellent service, fast delivery and good communication,and im really happy with the result. I will be making further purchases in the future for other games in my collection.
Setting up the order is easy, delivery is very fast I think this makes me always come back to this website. However, I really wish you had more option choices for fabrics. For instance, I am using neoprene and I wish there was more options for the neoprene cos the one you have is so thick like a sponge. And to also allow the option for people to send in their own fabrics for you to print on would change the game. Thank you
Product quality overall is great and I would be even more happier if I could order thinner mat (maybe 2mm) with anti slide surface on the bottom. For the board gaming it would the best.
Despite being so tough and durable, it's a fussier fabric than most as it needs a delicate, cold wash or a dry cleaning job to maintain its excellent condition. Give it a cool tumble or hang to dry. It's iron safe up to 120°c.
Neoprene mat: Whether it's a baby playmat, UK wargaming mat or a tabletop mat for comfort, this fabric is perfectly suited to the job. They are perfectly flat, durable and silent for when you're moving pieces or throwing dice. What's more, it's light and easy to transport, so roll it up and lay it down in seconds ready for play.
Neoprene handbags: Being sturdy and opaque in nature makes it a quirky material to use for bag making. You could even use it just for the face of a bag if you've got an existing one that's in need of a makeover.
Laptop covers: The protective padding is an ideal solution to finding the best protection for your devices. From Kindles to tablets, you can stitch together a custom made sleeve made from this lovely material.
Neoprene fabric, UK, for clothing: Designers like to make neoprene clothing such as printed skater skirts, as it holds the shape so well. We also have some customers making gym or sports jammer shorts, couture jackets and even custom neoprene dog vests.
Important: Before measuring and ordering your Neoprene printing, it's essential you refer to our hemming and shrinking information to avoid disappointment and order the accurate amount for your project. Due to the natural, thick structure of neoprene fabric, we are unable to offer our hemming service on this particular textile.
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.
We print your designs onto neoprene sheets and cut them to your specific dimensions, finishing the edges either cut on the line or left as they are. The dye sublimation process we use is a specialist technique, bonding the ink to the white jersey face creating an everlasting print.
If you prefer, we can also supply you with the plain Neoprene left unprinted, if this is what your crafty project requires.
Please note: the thickness of the neoprene can vary from 2-4 mm. Due to the fabric, we advise against high contrast graphics e.g. black text on a light background. Instead, we've found that the best artwork for neoprene is patterns of low contrasting colours with no large areas of solid colour.
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 colour 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 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)
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 10m max to visualise the print, but that's not a print limit. If you'd like to order more, increase the quantity (x2 for 20m or x4 for 40m for example) 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 5mm 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 colours are used. It can be minimised 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 fibres, reducing the colour strength slightly (by approx. -40%). For super strong colours we recommend a non-organic natural fabric.
Unfortunately not; we like to test meticulously so that we know what gets best results on our fabrics, and our facilities cater perfectly to them. We do however print sublimation paper to order, and if you have access to a heat press you can press your own fabrics easily.
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.
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 ordering a little more material than you require for your project.
We do not offer to print on both sides of the fabric. A lot of our fabrics are semi-transparent or have some show through and 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 fabric 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 colours and prints, avoiding the downsides of steaming, such as excess or contaminated water returning into the waste system. We have one facility in London where we conduct all the printing, production and fulfilment. 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 colour profiles all the time. Though rare it may happen that from one print run to another, and there could be slight colour 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 colour variations can be intensified from fabric to fabric due to the varying grains and textures of the fabric; natural fabrics tend to have more muted colours than their poly alternatives. 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 5 to 20mm of material, depending on the thickness of the fabric. So, for example, if you want a finished piece of fabric that measures 100 x 100cm, you will need to order a size of 101.5cm x 101.5cm 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:
