Care: the Soft Twill fabric placemat is machine washable at 30°c and can be tumble or hang dried. Do not put the Oilcloth matte tablemat in the washing machine, all you need to do is simply wipe clean with a damp, soapy cloth and you’re done!
We hand make all customised placemats, printing your designs onto the chosen fabric, cutting to size and hand-stitching together. The digital printing process we use ensures your images won’t fade, even with every wash so the placemat fabric can literally be passed down generations!
What Will My Fabric Dinner Mats Actually Look Like?
The last thing anybody wants is to find fibres in their food so we use a single layer of fabric and hem the edges to prevent fraying. Your photos or design are printed edge-to-edge on the front to give off a bold teatime statement. Both fabrics produce a vibrant print, and the Oilcloth matte doesn’t develop a cracked patina over time so remains smooth even after heavy use.
Do You Have any Design Tips or Ideas?
The placemat is your canvas so go as mad or as mellow as you like! The edges are hemmed which means only a fraction of your design will be lost, so try to keep main features of your photo away from the hem areas.
Photo Placemat Inspiration
Print a placemat for each family member, featuring their face and name. This will put an end to any disagreements over who sits where! You could even go down the star sign route and print each fabric tablemat with everybody’s individual sign and characteristics. For families with duplicate signs, customise it to the person, so Dad and Son, or His and Her.
For unique wedding favours, personalise these gorgeous fabric placemats with your guests’ names and a thank you for helping to make the day extra special. To customise it even more, feature a monogram of you and your partner’s initials, keeping it in line with your wedding colour scheme. Because they are easily folded, they’ll fit into most handbags so guests don’t need to worry about carrying round an extravagant favour.
The imagination of a child is something beautiful, so encourage creativity and learning even at the table by designing a fun game to print on your custom fabric placemat. For fussy eaters, this could turn dinner time dramas into tea time triumphs!
When the festive season is near, these make great personalised Christmas placemats. Choose a traditional nativity scene – perhaps a photo from your child’s school play – or create a set, each one printed with a different image relating to the holiday season. I.e. snowman, elves, Christmas pudding, drummer boys etc. And because they’re easy to clean, it doesn’t matter if a little cranberry sauce tries to escape your plate!
