How Your Towels for the Beach Are Made

Your unique designs are printed onto a sheet of microfibre towelling material, which is then cut to your selected size sewn together by hand. Hems are stitched around the edges and finished to an exceptionally high standard. If you've chosen to print on both sides, the design you've chosen for the reverse is printed onto a different piece of fabric which is hand sewn to the front piece of fabric. This produces a doubly thick and doubly warm towel for beach use. We use a specialist printing process that fuses the ink into the fibres of the fabric, so your designs are permanent. Due to the technical microfibre fabric's pile, small flecks of white will be seen on the face of the towel, giving your design an authentic towelling effect. 

Upon first receiving your customised towels for the beach, we highly recommend washing it before first use. This will soften the fabric and make it feel extra nice against your skin. Mircofibre towels will also feel slightly flat to start with, but after a few uses, the pile will begin to fluff up. 

Care Instructions

Machine wash at 30°c for best results. Because we use dye sublimation, the print won't fade over time with washing. There's no need to tumble dry as microfibre fabric is quick drying.

  • Wash At 30 Degrees
  • Wash at 85 Fahrenheit
  • Tumble 1
  • Hang Dry
  • No Wring
  • Low Heat

Design Tips

The pile of the microfibre towelling is made up of small loops, giving the towel more surface area and ability to soap up moisture quickly. When brushed in the opposite direction, small flecks of white textile will be visible through the design. Although minimal, it's impossible to avoid when printing on terry towelling fabric. Due to this, we suggest using designs that are highly detailed with repeat patterns and motifs, instead of solid blocks of colour, especially black.

How does this product enhance my...

  • Home

    From children's swimming lessons to trips to the seaside in summer, make an event out of it with customised towels for the beach. Choose a design that reflects your individual style, such as bohemian prints inspired by Moroccan architecture, or floral patterns that are reminiscent of vintage designs. Whether you holiday abroad or in New Zealand, beach towels are an essential item, especially for children, so let your kids design their own towel and encourage them to swim.

  • Business

    Supply your hotel guests with a branded towel for beach or pool use. Not only is this good promotion for your hotel, but it's an extra touch to the holiday that won't go unappreciated. For summertime events, create a pop-up beach and let people hire or buy printed towels for the beach, featuring your event branding and hashtags. This is a cool way to help extend the reach of your event, encourage more visitors and give your guests a unique event experience.

  • Design Brand

    Design your own line of beach towels, handmade and printed. They have many uses, so can be advertised as beach towels, gym towels, camping towels or anything else you think your customer base would enjoy. Printed using high quality inks and a specialist printing process, your artwork designs are permanent and won't fade with use or with washing over time. To generate interest, create collections based on different themes and appeal to a wider audience.

Frequently asked questions:

What is microfibre?

Microfibre is an innovative fabric that has a looped pile, creating more surface area and allowing for quicker absorbency and quick drying. It's a perfect fabric for beach towel purposes.

Can I print on both sides?

Your unique towels for the beach can be printed on both sides, so your designs definitely stand out. We hand sew together 2 pieces towelling fabric so it's extra warm and thick.

Are they machine washable?

These are completely safe to put in the washing machine at 30°c, and because we use specialist dye sublimation printing process, your designs won't fade, peel away or scratch off.

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 stopping any interpolation.

  • Jpeg-Tiff Print Guideline Icon

    Should I save my file as a TIFF or JPEG?

    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.

  • RGB-CMYK Print Guideline Icon

    Which colour model should I choose? RGB or CMYK?

    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)


    What does GSM mean?

    Grams per Square Meter (GSM) is an international standard for measuring the weight of paper or fabric. GSM uses the weight of a square meter (1000 x 1000mm) as an indication of the weight and thickness of a given fabric. We class 20-100gsm as light (summer fabrics, gauzes and fine silks), 101-249 gsm as medium (most clothing fabrics) and 250+ gsm as heavy (upholstery fabrics, and other specialist fabrics).

  • Fill Bleed Areas ICON

    What are bleed areas?

    When designing your product, it’s best to make sure that your image is slightly larger than needed. In printing, the extra printed image is referred to as a “Bleed Area” or margin, and it is removed from the finished piece. A bleed area acts as a buffer for slight inconsistencies in the manufacturing process. however, it’s important to fill your bleed areas completely, or you may end up with white, unprinted strips along the edge of your finished product.

  • Transfer-Print Guideline Icon

    Do you print on garments a customer supplies?

    Unfortunately not. All our garments are printed on flat fabric and sewn into finished products, which gives a better-finished result and all-over print. We 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 paper to order, so if you have access to a heat press you can press your fabrics or flat garments easily.

  • Pattern Alignment Across Seams ICON

    Can you Align a Pattern or design across panels of a garment?

    We always strive for the greatest accuracy when printing and constructing your garments. However, due to unavoidable stretch or movement of the fabric during the stitching process, we cannot guarantee perfect pattern registration across garment seams. We are generally accurate within 2-3mm, which is close enough for most patterns but may show slight issues with detailed geometric patterns.

  • print label option icon

    Can I print my own Labels?

    Most of our garments now come with printable label space for you to add your own company information and branding! If you would like to sew in your own labels, we also offer Printed Fabric Labels here.

  • 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 colours 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 fulfilment.

Please note: As everything we provide is handmade to order, all measurements may vary slightly.
