What is Printed Leather?
For printing onto leather we introduced specific dyes to print deep into the fibers of the hide. This new method eliminates the need to use outdated methods, which create printed leather by using a synthetic coating that sits on top of the material’s surface. The leather itself has a white base color, which means that your colors will be strong and rich. White leathers will be printed with exceptional color accuracy. We use the latest technology to ensure the best prints, as a result we’re able to print leather with any design, from images and patterns to solid colors.
How to Print on Leather
Our leathers come directly from the tannery, so they have already been tanned and treated. To create your custom leather prints, upload your design or artwork to the design interface of your preferred leather. Our digital printing method penetrates the inks deep into the fibers of the printed leather, causing it to be undisturbed by the surface texture. All our leather printing services are carried out in our West London, UK facility, ensuring quick turnarounds and fast delivery times.
Purpose of Leather
Custom printed leather is great for any number of uses, from clothing such as skirts and jackets, to accessories like belts, wallets, purses and even shoes. Printing onto leather means that your next craft project can be totally customized, and your materials will feature your design, in full glorious color. From thinner, flexible leathers to thick leather board and multiple options in between, we have a range of printed leather than you can choose from and design in bespoke sizes.
Our leathers are available in smooth and debossed, full grain and corrected grain, and in vegan friendly faux leather. Digitally printed leather keeps its original handle and doesn’t get stiff over time. It is durable and has been rigorously rub-tested. The ink is as strong as the leather itself, so provided you care for your printed leather, it will last for years and years to come.
