Printing on real, soft nappa leather is a great way to show off your designs and artworks. Nappa leather is a full grain goat leather, so it is the best grade of leather that is available. We print directly onto it, deep into the fibers using the most up to date printing methods. This means that the ink is as strong as the leather, so with appropriate nappa leather care, it will last for years to come.

Nappa Leather Printing

Goat full grain nappa leather is a real leather with a thickness of 0.027" - 0.035". It is the best grain of leather that is available and comes in a choice of either textured, which has a stamped 'Bison' grain, or smooth which has a flat face. Our nappa leathers are tanned in Europe, using the best quality materials and processes, and is printed here in our studio, with your artwork and designs, using the most up-to-date printing technology.
surface texture nappa leather

Surface textures

There is a choice of surface textures when printing on nappa leather. A smooth option which has a flat face, and a textured option which is debossed. This means that the 'Bison' grain has been stamped into the leather. Our latest printing technology prints directly onto both flat and textured surface, and penetrates deep into the fibers so that your design will be completely undisturbed by any surface texture.

print detail nappa leather

Print detail

Both of our nappa leathers have a white base tone, so your colors will appear strong and rich. You can print fine lines up to 2pt with exceptional detail, and these will display clearly and beautifully. Our up-to-date printing technology means that you can print any color, whether it is solid color, images or patterns. Digital printing on nappa leather produces beautiful results.

usage nappa leather

Usage

Custom printed nappa leather has so many uses, as it is such a versatile and hard wearing material. Popular uses are bags, belts, jackets and skirts. This leather is not suitable for children's toys or pet products though, due to the risk of ink being forcefully removed and ingested.


Frequently asked questions on Soft White Nappa Texture 0.027" - 0.035"/Soft White Nappa Smooth 0.027" - 0.035":

Will my nappa leather or my print wear out?

Provided you make sure that you use appropriate leather nappa care, then your prints will last for years to come. Nappa leather is rub proof, and the ink is as strong as the leather itself.

Will my leather go hard over time?

No, it won't. Nappa leather keeps its original handle throughout its lifetime. This means that it is not going to stiffen over time. Your digital print on nappa leather can be folded, bent or even stretched and has great anti-wrinkle and low crease properties. The textured nappa leather doesn't show creases due to the rick texture, and you will only be able to see very light wrinkling on the smooth nappa, and only when you fold smooth face to smooth face.

Why are different leathers offered in different sizes?

This is due to the where the leather comes from. Cows are larger animals than goats are, and thus the leather that we would get from those animals will be in a larger single piece. The maximum print size of our digital printed nappa leathers is 51.18" x 25.59"

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-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?

    If each individual color is specifically important to your design, choose CYMK as our setup will print each color with the closest possible match within our available range. If the relationship between the colors within the image is more important choose RGB; this will reduce all colors equally to fit within our range.

  • Print-Roll Length Fabric Guide Icon

    Maximum dimensions

    For most of our fabrics there is no limit on the length of the fabric that you can order. We have a preview design window set up to 10 yds max to visualize the print, but that's not a print limit. If you'd like to order more, increase the quantity (x2 for 20 yds or x4 for 40 yds for e.g.) and then you can order as much as you'd like, with a built in automatic volume discount too. The maximum print width of each fabric can be found on the individual fabric 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 borders into your purchased fabric size. We trim squarely around fabric samples and fabric prints, leaving approximately 0.22" white space. Cutting neatly on the line has an additional fee.

  • Transfer-Print Guideline Icon

    Do you print on fabric a customer supplies?

    Unfortunately not; we like to 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 transfer paper to order, and if you have access to a heat press you can press your own fabrics easily.

  • Shrinkage-Print Guideline Icon

    What is the situation with material shrinkage?

    Just like many fabric printing processes, there is the potential for shrinkage. Depending on the fabric, please expect and allow between 2-8% shrinkage which you need to plan for in your dimensions.

  • Print-Both Sides Print Guideline Icon

    Can I print on both sides of the fabric?

    We do not offer printing on both sides of the fabric, as a lot of our fabrics are semi-transparent. As the customer, you can consider the effect of printing on both sides one of our fabrics and contact us, and we will get back to you if it's feasible.

  • Labels-Print Guideline Icon

    Can I order labels in another fabric? Will you cut them like you do with the normal fabric labels?

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

  • 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 where we conduct all the printing, production and fulfillment.




Sizing For Hemming And Shrinkage

Hemming Options ICON

We have a full Cut & Sew service here at Contrado, and are able to hem your fabric prints for a small additional charge. We create a small one- or two-fold hem that typically uses 0.22" to 0.75" (5-20mm) of material, depending on the thickness of the fabric. So, for example, if you want a finished piece of fabric that measures 100 x 100cm, you will need to order a size of 101.5cm x 101.5cm to allow for the hem (on top of that please also allow for shrinkage of min 2%). The thicker the fabric, the bigger the hem will be. You can choose to have your prints hemmed with either Black or White thread. On our silk and other light woven fabrics, one hemmed edge will be straight (vertically down the roll) and the other will be slightly rippled. The hemming material allowances are as follows and you need to make your print bigger to accommodate the hem:

  • Light Fabrics (20-100gsm): For silks and other light fabrics, we use 6-8mm in the hem (2 fold), so overall width/height will be minus 0.5"/ 12-16mm
  • Medium Fabrics (101-200gsm): For medium-weight fabrics that fray, we use 0.5 - 0.75" / 15-20mm in the hem (2 fold) so overall width/height will be minus 35-40mm
  • Stiff/Heavy/No-fray fabrics: we use 0.5 - 0.75" / 15-20mm in the hem (1 fold) so overall width/height will be minus 1.5" / 35-40mm

All of these measurements are approximate and can vary. Including with shrinkage it can mean a fairly significant difference to ordered dimensions, so please plan your print accordingly. Depending on how open the weave is, our fabric can shrink anywhere from 2% to 8% with the average being 2.5%.

How Would you Like the Edge?

We have four finishing options for your fabric order: 
  • As it comes. We cut around your image, leaving a simply scissor cut, perhaps uneven white fabric border. 
  • Hem with thread. We can hem your fabric with a choice of black or white thread. Please allow 1-2 days additional production time. See below for information on how hemming affects the size of your print. We offer an overlock hem as well as a folded hem (one or two fold depending on the fabric) however not all fabrics are suited to both hem types. If you can see both options, it means both are suitable, and you will be able to chose whichever you prefer. 
  • 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 fabric. This is the standard procedure for fabric cutting. This means that with some fabrics, for example, Georgette and Mulmul, which have a slight wave in them, some fraying will occur. This is unavoidable, as the cut follows the grain of the textile. 

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 bare 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.
