Please find below the answers to our frequently asked questions.

  • What method of printing do you use?

    Answer: We use wide format printers which print directly onto the fabric using water based pigment inks. This is just like a much larger version of an inkjet printer you may have at home, which has been specially adapted to accept fabric. Our printing method is far more eco-friendly than others, as we don’t use additional chemicals in the preparation or printing of our fabrics. Also there is very little wastage involved in both ink and materials.

  • What are your prices?

    Answer: The prices in our table below are for shop designs only. They include both the fabric and printing cost.

  • What is the maximum length of fabric?

    Answer: We can print up to 5m of continuous fabric at a time. If you are looking to place an order greater than 10m please contact us at sales@wovenmonkey.com to discuss your requirements.

  • Does your fabric shrink?

    Answer: Shrinkage will occur when the fabric is washed. The amount will vary depending on the fabric. Please visit our “Fabric Guide” for more information.

  • How do I best care for my fabric?

    Answer: We recommend our fabrics are washed on a 30ºC  delicates wash cycle. Some fading is typical with pigment inks, especially with dark colours. We also suggest when using a tumble dryer this is used on a low temperature setting.

    Our cotton drill, cotton-linen and half panama are dry clean only.

    When ironing a standard cotton setting will be fine, but please avoid spraying the fabric with water as this can cause staining or marking.

  • What file formats am I able to use?

    Answer: JPG, PNG, GIF, TIF, SVG, AI & EPS are all acceptable file formats. The file must be no more than 30MB. All AI, SVG and EPS files are converted to PNG before printing can begin.

  • What is the ideal image resolution to use?

    Answer: The ideal image resolution to use would be 150-300 DPI. However, you have the freedom to upload an image at any resolution, but the preview will always be displayed initially at 150DPI. You can also alter the resolution once the image has been uploaded.

  • How do I ensure my colours are printed correctly?

    Answer: Please make sure before uploading your file that the colour profile is RGB (for those that want more technical info, ideally sRGB IEC61966-2.1). We do not check the design before printing.

    We always recommend you purchase a swatch of your fabric before ordering a higher quantity. This way you can check to see if the colours match your design.

  • Is every design uploaded automatically put up for sale?

    Any artwork you upload to the site will still remain under your copyright. Therefore unless you have set up a store on the site and submitted your design to be sold, it will not feature on our shop.
    This means any design you upload to the site will remain yours, and will not be sold unless you've requested it.
  • How do I set up my store so I can sell my designs?

    Answer: Once you have logged into your account go to ‘My Store Details’. From here you will need to provide us with the following:

    1. Store name
    2. PayPal email address (we need this to send you your commission)
    3. Store Description


    There is also optional information you can give us, which will help you personalise your store:

    1. Profile Picture
    2. Shop Banner
    3. The city you are from
    4. A link to your personal website
  • What commission can I earn from selling my designs?

    Answer: We have 3 different commission rates which are based on the monthly sales of your designs.

    With Monkey Merchant you will earn 10% on each purchase of your design (excluding test swatches). Once you have earned over £50 you will automatically become an Ape Entrepreneur and receive 11% commission. If you achieve over £120 of commission you will receive 12.5% as a Gorilla Tycoon. Please be aware these commission rates are reset at the end of each month.

  • How is my commission paid?

    Answer: When you set up a store you will have to provide us with your PayPal account details. All payments will be sent through PayPal. This will be the first week of the following month. Please be aware if the total commission is less than £5, the amount will be brought forward to the next month. Therefore a payment will only be made if the total is at least £5.

  • Why can it take a few days for a design to appear for sale?

    Answer: Each design which is submitted has to be checked to ensure it complies with our terms & conditions and there are no errors in the artwork, such as the repeat not working. Once approved it will then appear on the site.
