  • 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.

    With our polyester fabrics fading should be less noticeable after washing, but extra care should be taken with our soft velvet.

    Our bull denim, 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.

  • Having trouble uploading your design?

    Answer: If you're struggling to upload your design to the website, then it's important to check the file format, and the file size. We accept the following file formats: JPEG, PNG, GIF, TIF, SVG, AI & EPS. If your artwork is not saved in one of these formats then it won't upload to the site.

    We have a file limit of 30mb. If your design exceeds our file limit then your design is unlikely to upload to the site.

    Please contact us at hello@wovenmonkey.com if your design is still not uploading, after checking the file format is correct, and it's under 30mb.

  • Why is my design showing at the wrong size?

    Answer: If your design is appearing at the wrong size on the preview page then it could be due to the image resolution. Therefore it's always important to check the image resolution of your artwork before uploading it to the site.

    If it's appearing too large then it could be due to the image resolution on the site being set to low. For instance you might have created your artwork at 300 DPI, but it's set as 150 DPI on the preview page. This will result in the design appearing at double the original size.

    If the artwork is appearing too small, then it might be due to the image resolution of your design being below 150 DPI.

    The advice given only applies to non-vector images. That's those which aren't PDF or AI files. With vector images you should leave the DPI at our default setting of 150 DPI.

  • What file formats am I able to use?

    Answer: JPEG, 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.

  • How long do I have to wait for my order?

    Answer: For all orders we aim to print, fix, cut, pack and despatch your fabric within 5 to 7 working days. The majority of our parcels are sent using Royal Mail although larger orders may be sent by courier.  Our working days are Monday to Friday.

  • Is every design uploaded automatically put up for sale?

    Answer: 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.

  • 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.

    For the polyesters in our range we use a dye sublimation process. This results in fabrics which are more vibrant in colour, and give better wash results.

  • How do I cancel an order?

    Answer: If you wish to cancel your order please get in touch at orders@wovenmonkey.com. We ask that you contact us as soon as possible as any delay may mean your order could have been despatched already.

  • Am I able to return my fabric?

    Answer: At Woven Monkey we want our customers to be happy with the fabric they receive. Due to the bespoke nature of our service we will only consider returns where there is a fault in the base fabric or print, as we are unable to re-use or resell material that is returned to us.

    Any fault must be reported to us within 14 workings days of receipt of the item. If after inspection the fabric is determined to be faulty we will offer you a reprint or a refund and we'll contribute to a customer’s return delivery costs.

    If you wish to discuss returning your printed fabric please contact us at orders@wovenmonkey.com
