Lead Times & Deadlines

Our approximate lead-time for custom printed tea towels, cushion covers, aprons, bags and most other items made from digitally printed fabric, is approximately 2-3 weeks, most of the year. 

This is a guideline only and is not a guarantee.  Also, please note that this estimate is from when we have received payment/order confirmation, and print-ready artwork, and is not from the date of the initial enquiry. 

If you have an urgent deadline, then please contact us to see if we can produce your products on time. 

Our lead-time depends on our workload, so generally speaking we’re busier and our lead times are longer, in the run-up to Christmas, and other key events of the year. 

Please note that it is the client’s responsibility to ensure that we are made aware of the deadline, if there is one, at the time of order. 

Our approximate lead-time for ceramic mugs does depend on volume, but is usually approx. 3-5 working days. Again, this is an estimate only and not a guarantee. 

Super Fast Tea Towels

While production times for products that are made up from pigment-printed fabrics are usually around 2-3 weeks, we do have another approach with much faster lead times. 

We print onto tea towels, cushions and tote bags which we have made up in advance, which means that the most time-consuming processes (cutting, trimming, sewing and inspection) have already been done, allowing us to quickly print directly onto the product. 

This is suitable for short-run production (10-100 units), and we can potentially meet very tight deadlines with this process, of just 2-3 days, possibly even less, depending on current workload and quantity. 

An example of this: A customer came to us recently having been let down buy their usual supplier, and required 50 digitally printed tea towels for Friday – the problem was that it was now Monday afternoon… 

Actually, we didn’t get them delivered for the Friday – we managed to get them printed in just one day and get them out of the door on the Tuesday to be delivered on the Wednesday AM. 

So if you do have a super urgent requirement for digitally printed tea towels in small to mid volumes, just submit a quote request, email us or give us a call on 01625 876 949.
