Frequently asked questions on Double Butt 2.4-2.6mm:

Will my print rub off?

It won't. The method of digital printing on cow leather we use prints directly onto the flat leather. The inks create a very strong bond with the leather and will become as strong as the leather itself. The inks we use pass the Martindale Abrasion Test.

Will my cow leather get stiff?

It will not. Leather keeps it's original handle and doesn't get stiff over time. The double butt, full grain leather is stiff to begin with, it is part of its charm, and durable nature. However, it will not stiffen further over time.

How big can I print my full grain leather?

Due to the nature of leather, not every piece is exactly the same size. As it is dependent on the cow itself. We can offer our double butt leather in print sizes up to 55.12" x 55.09".

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, preventing 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 color space. Specifically using the sRGB image profile, to achieve best color 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)

  • Print-Roll Length Fabric Guide Icon

    Maximum dimensions

    The maximum dimensions of the leather will depend on the type of leather. You will find more information on each leather product page. If you'd like to order more, you can increase the quantity, with a built in automatic volume discount too. The maximum print width of each leather can be found on the individual leather pages or in our design interface.

  • Borders-Print Guideline Icon

    Do I need to incorporate white space within my design if I want a border or some cutting space?

    Yes, that might help you! Always incorporate any extra space or boarders into your purchased fabric size. We trim squarely around fabric samples and fabric prints, leaving approximately 5mm white space. Cutting neatly on the line has an additional fee.

  • Transfer-Print Guideline Icon

    Do you print on leather a customer supplies?

    Unfortunately not; we like to test meticulously so that we know what gets best results on our materials, and our facilities cater perfectly to them. 

  • Shrinkage-Print Guideline Icon

    What is the situation with material shrinkage?

    As we use the newest printing technology for printing on leather, there is no shrinkage with the the material during our processing at all.Print-Both Sides Print Guideline Icon

  • Can I print on both sides of the leather?

    Unfortunately, we do not offer printing on both sides of the leather. 

  • Labels-Print Guideline Icon

    Can I order swing tags in another leather? Will you cut them like you do with the normal leather swing tags?

    At the moment no, our swing tags are all printed on the same nappa leather. We may introduce more in the future, but for now this is the best choice. The swing tags are all cut the same way. You can order the leather of your choice and make the swing tags yourself, but we do not cut different leather into swing tag format.

How Would you Like the Edge?

We have two finishing options for your fabric order: 
  • As it comes. We cut around your image, leaving a simply scissor cut, perhaps uneven white fabric border. 
  • Cut on the line. We will cut neatly on the edge of your image. Please be aware, when we cut along the line, we have to cut against the grain of the material. This is the standard procedure for fabric cutting.
All of our fabrics are cut manually by hand, with the utmost care and attention. If your fabric has a slightly uneven look on the edges, or a touch of fraying, this does not indicate a flaw in the textile. It is not always possible to achieve a perfect straight cut with certain fabrics, so please do bear this in mind when it comes to your design. If you have any queries 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. 
Please note: As we make everything by hand, all sizes may vary slightly.
Not suitable for children’s toys or pet products, due to risk of ink being forcefully removed and ingested.
