How Your Custom Sports Bag is Made and Printed
Your custom gym bags are expertly handmade to order, using the best materials for the job. We print your designs onto two separate sheets of Linden Waterproof fabric - which is 100% waterproof - using a specialist process that fuses the ink deep into the fibres, ensuring your design doesn't fade with regular use and washing. Linden Waterproof has a stark, vibrant print reproduction with high definition colours and details. The two pieces of fabric are hand stitched together, and 2 metal eyelets are sewn into the corners to accommodate the black drawstring cord. Everything is finished by hand to produce a flawless finish, guaranteeing a bespoke product.
Your custom sports bags can be machine washed at 30°c and your designs won't fade over time with regular use and washing. The Linden Waterproof fabric is quick drying, so there's no need to tumble dry.
When designing your custom drawstring bags, take into consideration the position of the 2 metal eyelets, used to feed through the drawstring cord. You may want to keep specific elements of your design such as text or faces away from these area to avoid them being cut out. Depending on what you plan on using the bar for, you can bring this into the concept of your design and utilise the double sided printing to your advantage. If being used for school, one side could be printed with a cool design and the other with name, class and school details. Drawstring bags like this are also incredibly popular to hand out at events as goody bags, so you can upload your logo to maximise brand exposure. Another idea is to print totally constrasting designs on each side, allowing you to coordinate your bag with your outfit.
Design a gym bag for each family member and avoid any sports kit confusion. Printed with photos, names or a distinct pattern to reflect their personality, it's a neat way to ensure there's no mistakes made when picking up your gym kits. Custom sports bags also ensure it's easy for you to identify your kit when at the gym for example.
Leisure centres and gyms can offer a range of branded drawstring bags for members as a promotional offer. This is a great way to maximise brand exposure, as people would use the bags on a regular basis out in public. They're also an ideal bag for businesses to use as event goody bags for delegates to take away.
High quality waterproof sports bags are a great product to include in your design brand's range. Printed with your unique designs, customers can enjoy your artwork in a novel way. You can customise the bag all over, including a barcode and your brand's logo and information. Highly versatile, you can market it in several ways.
Frequently asked questions:
Are my designs printed on both sides?
Yes, you get to design the front and back individually, which allows you to print two distinct styles on each side and essentially get two bags in one.
Is my bag waterproof?
We use Linden Waterproof fabric which is 100% waterproof, making your bag an ideal accompaniment to your outdoor sports or swimming lessons.
How durable are these bags?
The Linden waterproof fabric is extremely hardwearing, and we use thick, strong black for the drawstring so your bag can withstand wear and tear.

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.
Should I save my file as a TIFF or JPEG?
For multi-coloured or very detailed files we recommend using a tiff format, but they must be flattened. For simple colours and low detail files, a jpeg is fine.
Which colour model should I choose? RGB or CMYK?
We advise providing images in the RGB colour space. Specifically using the sRGB image profile, to achieve best colour 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).
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.
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 the 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.
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.
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.
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 colours 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 fulfilment.
