How your Custom Lamp Shades are Made
Custom lamp shades handmade to order. Your unique designs are printed onto Stiff Translucent fabric and then backed with a fire rated lining. Using dye sublimation, the inks are fused deep into the fibres of the fabric, resulting in a permanent print that won't fade. Your edge-to-edge printed lamp shades have a white painted metal frame at the top or bottom depending on whether you choose ceiling or table lamp shade. Your shade will come with a removable adaptor to alter the size of the fitting ring.
To keep your design nice and vibrant, regularly dust to maintain cleanliness. As with any electrical appliance, keep liquids away from the bulb and plug socket to avoid accidents.
Your designs are printed edge-to-edge all around the circumference of the drum. To ensure your design is always visible from any angle, we suggest patterns, or for small motifs/logos, you might want to tile the image. If you select one photo, this will be stretched around the bespoke lampshade and look distorted, so choose designs that have a repeat pattern in for the best result.
From coffee tables that need a little love to ceilings in need of a makeover, these beautifully printed lamp shades help illuminate your home with class and style. The textured fabric has a rustic, authentic charm, and your images look gorgeous when the lamp is turned on. Your designs are visible both on and off.

Frequently asked questions:
What light fittings does my lamp shade fit?
The fitting rings on your custom lamp shades fit standard UK light fittings. When installing a bulb into the lampshade, make sure the light switch is turned off so you don't burn your hand.
What is the maximum wattage?
For the smaller custom made lamp shades (20cm round and oval) the maximum wattage is 40w bulb. For the other sizes, it's safe to use 60w-100w bulbs but energy saving bulbs are better for the environment.
Is a bulb included?
Your printed lamp shades don't come with a bulb included, as it could easily be smashed during the delivery process and cause potential danger to the person who opens the package.

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.
