Leather Swatches for Leather Printing
We are now able to offer printing on a variety of leathers, thanks to our new state-of-the-art leather printing technology. This allows us to print onto numerous different leathers with amazing colour reproduction and fine detailing up to 2 pt. Each of our leathers has a different thickness, handle, or texture, yet each and every one of them looks visually stunning once printed.
We don't expect you to just take our word for it though, which is why we have introduced our leather swatches. This is a pack of leather swatches that are 5.5cm x 5.5cm (that's 2 inches squared) printed with the classic Contrado sample design which shows both fine and solid details, a variety of colours that are vibrant, rich, dark, bright, and striking to give you as much variety as possible. This is the best way to show you exactly what to expect and to help you make the right choice.
The Nappa leather is sourced via Italian tanneries for printing and finishing in our own in-house atelier studio. This work is by hand and to order. As a full-grain, bovine-calf leather, it is graded to the highest level for print and manufacturing quality.
With our leather swatches, you can not only see the surface textures and the handle of each material, but you can touch it for yourself. You can make a fully informed decision with using the leather swatches before committing to ordering an entire project worth of material.

Frequently asked questions:
How are your swatch packs separated?The classic swatch pack includes the man-made materials, the natural has only the naturals, and the paper only the papers. The leather swatches contain only the genuine leathers; as we offer vegan-friendly leatherette options, we wouldn't want to put them in the same packaging as the leather swatches.
Are all of your leathers in the swatch pack?All of the leathers that we currently offer are included in the swatch pack, and as we introduce more and more leathers they'll be added into new swatch pack versions. We try to ensure that every material is included in the packs at all times, and the date your pack was printed along with the version number will be displayed on the leather swatches packaging. If you have any questions about your swatch pack please contact our customer service team via chat who will be happy to assist you.
Why are the leather packs smaller?The leather swatches are smaller for a number of reasons. Leather is a much more expensive material, which contributes to this greatly. If we were to create the leather swatches in the same size, we'd have to charge more for them. There are also limitations to the maximum sizes of each leather we use, dependant on the size of the animal. Smaller leather swatches are easier to create.
