Care instruction

Every few washes if you feel the fibres stiffening at all, wait till the fabric is dry then give it a loving brush until you feel it relax and return to its pampered self.

How to Care for Your Velvet

Velvet fabric needs extra special care and attention to keep it looking its best, so wash on a gentle cycle at no more than 30°, and don’t tumble dry. To keep the velvet fluffy and soft, give it a loving brush with a stiff bristled brush once it has dried, for it to return to its luxurious natural state.
 

What Can I Make with My Velvet Fabric?

The soft nature of velvet fabric makes it perfect for snuggling up under a cosy blanket or against elegant cushions. If you want to add some glamour to your wardrobe in an understated way, try adding a marbled velvet lining to a jacket or skirt. The soft fabric feels wonderful against the skin and gives a glimpse of extra luxury.

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 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 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.

The finest digital prints

With digital printing on velvet using sublimation printing, your photos are reproduced in full colour with sharp details and a consistent tone. The nature of velvet means it’s perfect for displaying bold and colourful designs. These opaque fabrics have sleek and smooth surfaces with a neutral backing colour, keeping the print true to your images. Velvet Shimmer and Marbled Velvet both have a slightly shiny surface, so every time they catch the light your designs will be brought to life. Use your custom printed velvet to create custom dresses, skirts or even luxurious curtains for the home.

You have four finishing options, depending on how you plan to use your new velvet fabric:

  • As it comes – your image will be roughly cut around and left as it is, possibly with a white border.
  • Hem with white thread or with black thread – we hem your fabric for you, which adds two days to the production time.
  • Cut on the line, where we carefully cut around the edges of your image.
