    With so many fabrics to choose from and all with great properties, custom woven fabric has never been better.

    Delicate and feminine wovens such as chiffon, organza and silk seem so different in contrast to their hardier cousins, like twill, poplin and canvas. Thanks to their plethora of benefits, woven materials are used for a variety of different end uses. Clothing, homeware, and accessories are all popular choices to make when you design your own woven fabric. Some tightly woven fabrics are waterproof and can be used to make items such as umbrellas, raincoats, and even parachutes. On the whole, textiles that are woven have a firm and solid construction that maintains the straight nature of their yarn. At Bags of Love, we carry all three types of woven fabrics; plain weave, satin weave, and twill weave. You will notice that each has its own distinct features, so make sure you spend time getting to know each one and seeing which will be the best for your next project.

    How To Care For Your Woven Fabric

    Fabrics made from weaving tend to be tauter and hardier than knitted fabrics. This makes them strong and durable and easy to care for. As woven fabrics can fray, it is always important to finish them off with the correct hem - a zigzag stitch or serger work best. They keep their shape well and are less prone to snagging and stretching. To ensure your customized woven fabric always looks its best, we recommend only washing them in a cool and delicate wash - never above 30 degrees C. Leave them to drip dry and if in any doubt, you can take them to a specialist dry cleaners. 
     

    What Can I Make With My Custom Woven Fabric?

    The question should be, what can't you make with woven material? They tend to be a popular option for a lot of different kinds of clothing. Poplin and twill make wonderful material for shirts, thanks to their structure and smart aesthetic. Crepe is a very popular choice for dresses, skirts, and blouses. The wedding dress industry uses weaves in abundance. Fabrics such as organza, chiffon, Georgette, and taffeta are always popular in the construction of bridal dresses, thanks to their ethereal and feminine qualities. The peached and poly-coated woven fabrics make great choices for outdoor items such as windbreakers, splash suits, and umbrellas. See what you can make and let us know the results.

    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.

    Proud to personalize your prints

    We are very proud of our specialist printing method, which is achieved through the careful work of the Bags of Love print technicians. Using water-based inks, your designs are printed deep into the fibers of your chosen woven material. Not only does this lock in the color, but it creates a durable and bold print that will not fade with use or time (as long as care instructions are followed). Every fabric has its own unique characteristics. This means that they each take the ink a little differently and as a result, the print can be more vibrant or softer. The base tones of the fabrics can make a big difference too, so make sure you read up about each fabric before making your selection. Please note when selecting Cotton Linen that occasional small white dots may occur. This is where pieces of cotton fluff are removed revealing unprinted white base material. This is completely normal and cannot be avoided.  

    You can also choose how you want the edges of your textile 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.

    There are certain measurements that you should keep in mind if you want your fabric hemmed. Please factor these into your final dimensions:

    • Light fabrics: we use 0.24"-0.31" in the hem (2 fold), so your width/height will be minus 0.47"-0.63"
    • Medium fabrics that fray: we use 0.6"-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 0.6" -0.78" in the hem (1 fold) so width/height will be minus 1.38"-1.57"

     

    Print Guideline

    • DPI-Print Guideline Icon

      What resolution is best for printing?

      All of our fabrics are printed at 200dpi. This works for us as it combines a great quality as well as a good file weight. In order to avoid resizing and interpolation, we recommend that you scale your image to 100% at 200dpi. Our design interface works with a traffic light system that acts as a quality marker for your designs. This will show you whether the resolution is too low for printing. When you re-upload your design with a highest resolution, the traffic lights will change color, showing you're good to go. A message will pop up alongside the traffic lights to let you know if the resolution is too low or if you have a good quality image. 

    • scaling-Print Guideline Icon

      Will my image be scaled to fit?

      Your uploaded design will automatically be scaled to fit the size of fabric you've chosen. You can change the dimensions of your fabric by amending the measurements on the ‘Product Options’ tab, under ‘Print Size’. To see how this fits with the dimensions of your image/design, you can refer to the ‘Images & Text Tools’ tab under 'Quality Information'. Here, you will be able to edit the dimensions of the image.

    • RGB-CMYK Print Guideline Icon

      Should I choose RGB or CMYK?

      We always recommend using an RGB color space when you upload your images. More specifically, we suggest using the sRGB image profile, to achieve best color results. This will need to be done 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

      Is there a maximum length I can print on?

      There is no length limit for most of our fabrics. Our preview design window is set up to displaying a maximum of 10m (32.8 ft) to help you visualize the print, but that doesn't mean this is the print limit. If you'd like to order more, you can increase the quantity (x2 for 20m or x4 for 40m for example) and order as much as you'd like. Larger volumes will receive an automatic discount too. While the fabric length is nothing to worry about, each individual fabric will have a maximum width side: These can be found on the fabric's page information or in the design interface. 

    • Borders-Print Guideline Icon

      Should I add white space for borders or cutting onto my design? 

      Yes, that will help you when it comes to cutting or framing your printed fabric. We recommend always adding a little extra space for borders into your purchased fabric size. When we print your materials, or send out fabric samples, we typically trim squarely around the fabric, leaving approximately 5mm white space. Cutting neatly on the line has an additional fee.

    • crocking-Print Guideline Icon

      What is crocking?

      Crocking is the term used to describe fading along the creases in a fabric. It typically can occur after constant washing or heavy use of digitally printed natural fabrics. Crocking can be minimized by hand washing your fabrics at a cooler temperature, rather than machine washing. If you want to make sure there's no chance of crocking, we'd suggest you use a poly fabric. 

    • organics-Print Guideline Icon

      Is it normal for colors to appear lighter on organic fabrics?

      Yes, our organic fabrics don't have an additional coating like non-organic fabrics have, which means it absorbs the inks deep into its fiber and reducing the color strength slightly (this can be approximately -40%). If you would like a bolder, more vibrant color for your fabric, we would suggest using a non-organic fabric. 

    • Transfer-Print Guideline Icon

      Can I supply my own fabric for you to print onto?

      Unfortunately not; all of our fabrics have been tested meticulously to ensure we know exactly how to get the best results, and our facilities cater perfectly to them. If you are set on a fabric we don't offer, we can offer custom printed sublimation paper to order which will allow you to heat press your designs onto your own fabrics.

    • Jpeg-Tiff Print Guideline Icon

      Which is a better image format: TIFF or JPEG?

      If your design is simple and less intricate, a JPEG will be absolutely fine. However, if you have created a design with multi-colored detailing, we would recommend saving your design in a TIFF format. 

    • Shrinkage-Print Guideline Icon

      Will my material shrink during printing?

      Similar to other fabric printing processes, shrinkage can occur. The amount of shrinkage will depend on the fabric, but as a general rule of thumb, please allow for 2-8% shrinkage when working out your measurements. Shrinkage is not an exact science, and the amount of shrinkage will vary from print run to print run. We'd always suggest order a little more than you need for your project. 

    • Print-Both Sides Print Guideline Icon

      Can I order double sided printed fabric?

      Many of the fabrics we offer are semi-transparent, so printing on both sides of the fabric is not a service we offer. 

    • Labels-Print Guideline Icon

      Can I order labels in a different fabric? Are the labels cut like normal fabric labels?

      At the moment, all of our fabric labels are printed on satin fabric. For now, we believe this is the best choice, but will potentially introduce other options in the future. All labels are cut to the same label format. If you would like to choose a different fabric and format for your labels, you could always order a sheet of the fabric of your choice to create labels yourself. 

    • Eco friendly Printing

      How do you print your fabrics in an eco-friendly way?

      Our fabrics are printed with water-based inks as environmental consciousness is always front of our minds. Water-based inks include no chemicals or solvents, and our printing process uses heat to fix colors and patterns into place to avoid excess or contaminated water returning into the water system (this is something that can occur through steaming). All printing, fulfilment and production is done in our one facility, and rather than rolling the fabrics or sending them in a tube, you will receive your material folded up. This amounts to 150 tubes saved a week, as well as much more space on the delivery van for more orders. (For delicate fabrics we ensure to package appropriately).

    • colour palette

      Will there be slight color differences between my orders?

      Although very rare, there could be a slight color difference from one print run to another. This is a normal part of the printing process, however we are always working to improve our color profiles. It is unlikely that  the difference in print runs will be hugely different (for example, it's unlikely your orange is suddenly going to be red). The likelihood of color variations can be intensified fabric to fabric due to materials having different grains and textures; natural fabrics typically have more muted color tones, while poly alternatives have a bolder hue. This is because the construction of the material is different, and the printing method has to be altered slightly for more delicate, natural textiles.


    Sizing For Hemming And Shrinkage

    Hemming Options ICON

    Our full cut & sew service at Bags of Love can be used to your full advantage. We even offer hemming for your fabrics at a small additional cost. Our hems are created with a one or two cold hem that typically uses around 5 to 20mm of fabric (depending on the thickness of your chosen material). Please bare this in mind when you are ordering your printed fabric with hems: If you would like your finished piece to be 40" x 40", change your dimensions to 41" instead to allow space for your hems (you will also need to include additional for potential shrinkage). The thicker the fabric, the bigger the hem will be. Your printed fabric will be hemmed with either Black or White thread. If you are ordering a lightly woven material or a printed silk, you will find that one hem will be straight, while the other slightly rippled.  The hemming material allowances are as follows and you need to make your print bigger to accommodate the hem:

    • Light Fabrics (0.6 - 2.9 oz): For silks and other light fabrics, we use 6-8mm in the hem (2 fold), so overall width/height will be minus 12-16mm
    • Medium Fabrics (3.0 - 5.9 oz): For medium-weight fabrics that fray, we use 15-20mm in the hem (2 fold) so overall width/height will be minus 35-40mm
    • Stiff/Heavy/No-fray fabrics: we use 15-20mm in the hem (1 fold) so overall width/height will be minus 35-40mm
    All of these measurements can vary and should only be seen as an approximation. If you allow for hems and slight shrinkage, it can add a fairly significant amount to your ordered dimensions, so please make sure to consider these things prior to ordering. Depending on how open the weave is, our fabric can shrink anywhere from 2% to 8% with the average being 2.5%.
     

    Choose From Three Finishes

    We have three finishing options available: 
    • As it comes: We simply cut around your image with scissors - leaving a perhaps uneven white border. 
    • Hem with thread: We can offer your fabric hemmed with a black or white thread. This will add an additional 1-2 days of production time to your order. Please refer to the dimensions above to gauge how the hemming will affect the size of your print. You will have a choice of an overlock hem or folded hem (one or two fold depending on the fabric) however not all fabrics are suited to both hem types. In the design interface, you will be able to see which options are available to you. If you can only see one hem available, this means that this is the only suitable hem for this material type. 
    • Cut on the line: Rather than our 'as it comes' option, we will cut neatly on the edge of your design against the grain of the fabric. If you have a border around your design we will cut around that border. If the design takes up the whole fabric, we will neatly cut around the edge of the image. Cutting against the grain is standard for fabric cutting, and as such lighter materials such as Georgette or Mulmul will have a slight wave in them, and some fraying may occur. 
    All of our fabrics are carefully hand cut. It is not always possible to maintain a perfectly straight cut for certain fabrics, so please bear this is mind if you see your edge has a slightly uneven look or a little fraying. This is not a flaw in the material. If you have any questions 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.
