In this blog post, we’ll explore the benefits of personalised tea towels, the printing method we use and popular design choices so you can understand the potential of personalised tea towels. 

So, let's dive in and discover how to make a statement with our new custom tea towels.


Benefits of Personalised Tea Towels

Personalised tea towels offer several benefits that make them a popular choice amongst designers and the hospitality industry.

Versatility and practicality
Tea towels are a versatile and practical addition to any kitchen, bar or restaurant. They can be used for drying dishes, wiping up spills, serving dishes, tucking into aprons or even as makeshift trivets. By customising them with your own artwork, you can make sure your brand is always on show. They’re also perfect for things like cooking classes and workshops!

Brand recognition
Tea towels are a practical item that hospitality industries use every day. By adding your business's logo or message to a tea towel, you can ensure that your brand is seen and remembered on a regular basis. They’re also ideal for handing out at hospitality trade shows and culinary-based events.

Creative potential
With the freedom to design what you like, graphic designers and illustrators can easily add their artwork to even more merchandise options. Tea towels are often a popular gifting choice and are also a great add-on to orders. They also stand out from other promotional items like pens or keychains, offering a practical use that customers will appreciate. 

New markets
Our tea towels can be used for more than just kitchens and bars. Schools and charities often use them as a way to raise funds. They’re a great way to involve children and participants and you get a top-quality product that makes for a valuable keepsake afterwards.

We print your personalised tea towel designs on 100% cotton. Not only is this soft, absorbent material perfect for drying dishes, but it’s also suitable for popping in the washing machine so it can be reused over and over.


The Screen Printing Process

When it comes to creating our personalised tea towels, we use 1 colour screen printing. It’s one of the most common printing processes for printing on fabrics and textiles and it works by pressing the ink through a mesh screen that has your design stencilled on it onto the tea towel.

The screen printing process is ideal for larger quantities of tea towels, and it allows for vibrant and long-lasting colours. When ordered in bulk they also come in at a lower cost per unit, making them a great option for businesses on a budget.

We offer four different material colours to print your design on, these include white, black, grey and natural. 


Popular Design Choices

One of the best things about personalised tea towels is the wide variety of design options available. We’ve pulled together a list of some of the most popular design choices below to help get you started!

Logos are a classic design choice for personalised tea towels. You can choose to feature a single initial, logo or motif in a variety of fonts or colours. Logo tea towels make for great additions to the launch of a swanky new bar or restaurant looking to exude luxury.

Quotes and illustrations
Adding a favourite quote or illustration to a tea towel can be a fun way to infuse some personality. Perfect for designers looking to feature food-related quotes, humorous sayings, or fun illustrations. You can choose from a variety of fonts and colours to create a custom design that fits your style.

Hand-drawn designs
As we mentioned previously, a hand-drawn design from a school or charity is a great fit for a fundraiser. Simply scan in and upload the artwork and we can help you create a quality tea towel keepsake that’s full of charm and nostalgia.
