Here's what to do

When you have chosen your fabric head over to our Order webpage to upload your artwork.

It is important that your artwork is print ready.

Here is a checklist of what you need to do as well as our printing specifications here at The Silk Bureau.

  1. Make sure your artwork is SAVED at the size you want it printed at. There will be some shrinkage from your artwork to the printed fabric size which is totally normal. It’s hard to say what that shrinkage is but it’s usually about 5 – 10%
    1. If you have designed an all-over Repeat pattern, just send the single repeatable tile and enter many metres you want to print.
    2. Double check that your pattern REPEATS seamlessly without any obvious “join” lines.
  2. FLATTEN the artwork. This means your artwork file should be uploaded to us as a SINGLE layer.
  3. Embed your Color Mode – this must be RGB. We find that Adobe RGB (1998) and sRGB 2.1 are the most popular, although you may have used another. That shouldn’t be a problem. If it is, we’ll let you know.
  4. SAVE your artwork as an uncompressed JPG (JPEG) or TIFF
  5. Open our Order page.
    1. Choose your fabric from the dropdown list
    2. How many metres do you want printed? Please note we charge for a minimum of 1m.
    3. Upload your SAVED jpg (jpeg) or tiff file – Wait for the file to fully upload before proceeding.
    4. Is it a REPEAT file? Select Yes or No from the dropdown
    5. Just follow through the rest of the form answering the questions as you go.
    6. Remember to upload your current Student ID card.
    7. Finally agree to the Terms & Conditions and press the SUBMIT button. You will receive a confirmation email detailing your selections.

You can always give us a call with any questions you may have. Call 01386 861122 or email info@silkbureau.co.uk
