What is Outdoor Fabric?

Outdoor fabric is simply fabric that is recommended for use outdoors. You would expect these to be waterproof fabrics, but not all of them are. Some of these fabrics are simply water resistant; water resistant fabrics tend to be lighter and softer, so are much more suited for use making garments, whereas waterproof fabrics tend to be stiffer, and are great for outdoor furniture and for things like cushions for outdoor seating. 

Waterproof fabrics fall into one of two categories; they are either hydrophobic, which means water fearing, or hydrophilic, which means water loving. Hydrophobic fabrics are waterproof, however they are still permeable by steam. They have small pores which water cannot go through, however because steam particles are so much smaller than water, they can still pass through. Hydropholic moves water using chemical diffusion. The fabric is negatively charged, and the positively charged water molecule is attracted through the gaps between the molecules of the fabric. This pushes the water through the gaps until the water vapour passes all the way through.  

Finishing Methods for Waterproof Outdoor Fabrics

Whether you have created a personalised outdoor upholstery fabric for waterproof furniture, or custom outdoor fabric for garments, or cushion covers, you will be given a choice of edge finishing options. You will be offered a choice of two different hems (overlocked or baby hem) in a choice of two different thread colours (black or white), or the option to have your fabric sent "as is" with a white border, or "cut on the line" with all the white edges removed.

If you are opting to have your fabric hemmed, please make sure that you allow for the hem in your fabric measurements. 

  • Light fabrics: 2 fold hem taking up 6-8mm, so the actual height and width will each be 12-16mm shorter than your measurements
  • Medium fabrics that fray: 2 fold hem taking up 15-20mm, so the actual height and width will each be 35-40mm shorter than your measurements
  • Heavy/stiff/no-fray fabrics: 1 fold hem taking up 15-20mm, so the actual height and width will each be 35-40mm shorter than your measurements

Make a Collage

If you can’t decide on which photo to use, you can upload multiple images and create a photo collage. This can be done using one of our pre-set montage templates, or you can create your own entirely from scratch. It’s super easy to do and the possibilities are endless.

How to add your collage to your product

Step 1 – Click the start design button & select your product options.

Step 2 – Go to the ‘Images & Text Tools’ tab, click the ‘add images/Text’ button on your product & ‘Select Images to Upload’ or use the Facebook/Instagram tabs.

Step 3 – Choose the images you want to use for your collage, upload & select them from the uploaded photos list.

Step 4 – Click ‘Create montage’ & select your collage style.

Step 5 – Add the collage to your design.

Hints and Tips

  • The more images you add to your collage the smaller each image will be. Fewer images will be larger and give you more clarity and detail.
  • The more people in an image, the less detail there will be. If you have 10 images of a group of five friends, each person will be smaller than if you have 10 images of just one person.
  • Try to make sure that the longest side of each image is around 10 centimetres. There is a handy ruler built into the design tool to help you with this.
  • Smaller products will not be able to fit as many images as larger ones will.

Outdoor Fabric Printing Methods

All fabrics that we print in our studio are printed digitally. There are a few different methods that we use to do this - including dye sublimation and pigment printing. Every one of our printing methods bonds your custom design to your custom outdoor fabric. Pigment printing is localised printing. this method applies the dyes directly to specific parts of the fabric, building up the colours and design. Dye sublimation is done in two steps; first your design is printed onto a transfer sheet, and then using heat, your personalised design is bonded to you custom outdoor fabric.
