Frequently Asked Questions

How do we work?

Based in our London studio, our team of talented designers produce prints and graphics that clients use on many products, primarily in the kids fashion, home, toy, advertising, stationery and publishing markets.

We offer two services. You can purchase designs from our collection of ready made, unique artwork or you can commission us to create artwork for a specific project.

We pride ourselves on making the process of buying or commissioning artwork as convenient as possible.

For ease of reference, we breakdown our artwork into age groups and specific themes.

We know that you like to have the ability to use design assets across a range of products. Our solution is to offer a layout of placements and all over designs/patterns as we feel this offers you versatility when purchasing artwork.

We sell all artwork as shown, so cannot sell individual elements or split up the layout.

We do broadly try and base the collection on the different seasons but, as markets have different timeframes, we ensure we cover both A/W and S/S designs throughout the year.

This gives you the broadest choice of trend driven artwork to pick from.

Pricing information can be found on your Online Portfolio account. We sell our artwork in GBP, EUR or USD depending on your country.

Our commission rates are similar to our purchase prices and can be used to estimate your project cost.

We do include small amends and colour changes within the fixed price.

Start by either booking in a meeting with one of the design team or email us your requirements. We recommend you book a meeting as it gives the design team an opportunity to ask any questions straight away, but email is often easier if you have lots of inspiration images.

The designer who will work on the project will then send over confirmation details of cost and timeframes. We aim to get projects completed as quickly and efficiently as possible.

Once agreed, the designer will start the project and be in regular contact with drafts/progress and questions where appropriate.

With specific projects, we know that often clients require small embellishments/tweaks and these are all included within the project pricing.

When complete, you own the full copyright upon payment.

You can book a meeting here

We work on lots of projects and find that giving us as much information as possible always helps!

Booking an inital chat allows our designers to talk through your project and ask specific questions.

If you don't know where to start, check out our Trend Club for inspiration ideas and images. Then just send us your liked design images/styles, maybe some colour themes as well as details around targeted age group & markets which all help.

Yes, design copyright is fully transferred over to you after payment.

You are then free to use the design how you want and on any product.

We primarily sell the full copyright outright but we do license designs, especially artwork that is commissioned.

If your company works on a licensing basis, do contact us here with more details.

We offer appointments both in person and over Zoom.

Get in touch here about visiting you for an appointment or have one the design team show you the latest collection virtually.

Of course we can! We find clients often prefer to see the collection in person.

We print out the collection so can easily travel to you. Just get in touch or see if there is a free appointment time here.

Yes we do exhibit at Tradeshows and details of where we are next can be found here.

Requesting an online portfolio account

Access to our online collection is for business customers only.

To be approved for an account, please fill in the customer sign up form with yours and your companies details and one of the team will review and respond to the request.

As our online collection is for business customers only, each account request is reviewed by a member of the team.

We do try and approve requests as soon as possible but it may take up to 24 hours. Be aware we are based in the UK and work normal business day hours each Monday to Friday. If you send a request out of those times, it will be dealt with on the next working day.

Once approved, you should receive a confirmation email. It may end up in a spam or junk mail folder so do check those. If you dont recieve anything over 24 hours from registering, do contact us here.

Once logged in, you can easily view all of our designs in the collection. You can filter by categories or search for specific themes and design numbers.

You can save images for later reference in Wishlists and quickly purchase and download designs by Invoice or Credit card following the Shopping cart checkout.

With an account, you can view previous purchases from our site as well as download digital files and invoices.

At the moment, it isn't possible to share your Wishlist with other users on the Online Portfolio. If you would like to review a selection of prints with a wider team, please get in touch with us here and we can put together a PDF of your picks for you.

Nearly all of our files are created in Adobe Illustrator, with some created in Photoshop/Procreate - these are clearly marked under the product description.

All our designs are ready to use and fully editable with separated layers, fonts outlined and repeats in swatches.

Sometimes users downloading via Safari find that the files become postscript. This is an Apple error and you just need to delete the .ps at the end of the file. This should then open as normal via your Adobe software.

If you find that you cannot edit the file, it may because

a) you need to edit/pull out the pattern swatch from the Swatches Panel or

b) you need the files saved to an earlier version of Adobe. We can do that for you so do contact us. 

Our repeat patterns are not created to specific size but you can easily re-size them via the Swatches panel.

If you need to edit the text or know what fonts were used, please reply back to the order confirmation email and one of the design team will help out.


At present, we don't work with or represent freelancers, tending to create everything in-house. If this policy changes, we will announce it on our social media channels.

We do offer work experience placements. If you are interested in applying, please contact us here
