How Your Decorative Waste Paper Bins Are Printed & Made

Your paper waste bin is handmade by our teams of skilled craftsmen and print technicians, in the Contrado studios. Your designs are printed onto a custom semi-translucent fabric, which is then backed with a fire rated lining. Our print process of dye sublimation fuses ink deep into the fibers of the fabric, creating a rich and long-lasting finish. The fabric is then bonded with the wire frame, to create the body of the custom trash bins. The final step is adding the plastic base.

Care Instructions

To keep your custom trash bins looking vibrant and fresh, we recommend wiping it with a cloth whenever it gets a little dusty. We advise lining your bin with a plastic bag, to prevent the internal sides getting dirty. Due to the handmade construction of the bin, there is a small gap between the plastic base and the body of the bin. This helps retain the shape of the bin. It is therefore important to keep the bin lined, so small pieces of rubbish, such as pencil shavings, do not escape through the gap.

  • Wipe Down
  • No Soak

Design Tips

We print your artwork edge to edge on the semi-translucent fabric, all around the circumference of the bin. This gives your print a stylish 360° view. When it comes to designing your bin, if you use one image, be aware that it will be stretched around the whole bin. This could give designs featuring photographs, a slightly distorted look. We suggest using designs with a repeat patterns, or, why not use the tile tool?

Frequently asked questions:

What is the paper waste bin made from?

We use 3 different materials to create every bin by hand; wire to create the frame of the bin, fabric to create the sides and plastic to make the base insert.

What rubbish is suitable to put in the bin?

Your decorative waste paper bins are lightweight and stylish. They are made from fabric, and although they are sturdy, in order to keep them in optimum condition, we do not recommend placing any rubbish apart from light waste paper and similar items in them.

How many printed sides are on the bin?

These bins have one printed side. This side wraps around the whole bin, creating a 360° view of your design. Your bin will look striking and bold with artwork printed around the whole piece.

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 stopping any interpolation.

  • Jpeg-Tiff Print Guideline Icon

    Should I save my file as a TIFF or JPEG?

    For multi-colored or very detailed files we recommend using a tiff format, but they must be flattened. For simple colors and low detail files, a jpeg is fine.

  • RGB-CMYK Print Guideline Icon

    Which color 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)


    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).

  • Fill Bleed Areas ICON

    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.

  • Transfer-Print Guideline Icon

    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 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.

  • Pattern Alignment Across Seams ICON

    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.

  • print label option icon

    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.

  • Eco friendly Printing

    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 colors and prints, avoiding the downsides of steaming, such as excess or contaminated water returning into the waste system. We have one facility in London where we conduct all the printing, production and fulfillment.

Please note: As we make everything by hand, all sizes may vary slightly.
