How your Custom Address Book is Made
Our expert bookmakers bind your custom journals by hand using traditional methods. The ivory paper pages are bound into the spine, which comes in 4 colours so you can complement the printed design. We use specialist dye sublimation, where the the inks are fused deep into the satin fibres creating a permanent print that won't fade, peel away or scratch off. We finish the corners with shiny metal caps, to protect the edges and give a premium look.
Wipe clean with a cloth only. Keep the pages away from water and damp surfaces to avoid damaging your custom address book.
To make it a printable address book, we print your designs onto Monroe satin. This is a woven fabric, so the texture of the weave is slightly visible through the print. To guarantee a super sharp finish, we suggest using designs or images that have bold, large details. Images with fine, intricate, small details might not have as sharp a finish. Both the front and back cover are mounted with Monroe satin so you can design both sides with the same or different pattern. The back cover is good if it's to be used in a professional setting, so for address book business purposes, a barcode, logo or contact details can be featured on the back cover. This is an impressive, professional touch.
This beautiful printable address book is perfect to help keep your contacts organised and in one place. Sometimes, there's more information you need to make a note of that your phone doesn't allow space for, so store it in your very own custom address book. Not only is it a useful piece of stationery, but it doubles as a nostalgic memento that you can show to your children and reminisce over. Looking back at handwritten notes is always a joyous feeling.
If you're always on the go for business, provide employees with one of these printable address books. They can feature your logo and be customised for each individual colleage. This is a smart extension of the classic business card, and looks impressive in meetings. Address books are so versatile, as they can also be used as a journalistic black book of contacts. They're the perfect size to keep in your bag, but still big enough to write lots of detail.

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.
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.
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).
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
