our bags are manufactured
in the UK, CHINA and India

We have been printing in the UK now for almost a decade. During that time we’ve worked with everyone, from small independent business to global blue-chip brands. We like to think we’ve looked after all of them pretty well! We hold a large stock of cotton, canvas and jute bags onto which we can screen print up to 10 individual colours. For more complex designs, we might recommend our amazing litho heat transfer or digital processes that can really help to bring out details and colours.

We mostly use eco-friendly pigment water-based inks for our printing, which help us to always be keeping an eye on our environmental impact. But we can also print with Plastisol inks when finely detailed artwork and vibrant colours need to POP!
