Welcome to Fabpad


Fabpad is a leading fabric print bureau within the University of East London. We offer a fast and friendly sampling service using reactive dyes and natural fibre fabrics such as silks and cottons. We now offer sublimation printing, meaning we can print onto polyesters. For people who have access to a heat press we can provide your print onto dye sublimation paper. 

We pride ourselves on providing a professional and valuable service to everyone. We print for students, independent designers, fashion and textile studios, photographers and artists.

If your job isn't simple sampling but for instance printing for an installation or artwork please talk to us about your project before putting in your order. Fabric printing is more complex than paper printing - there may be parts of the process that you haven't considered.

Clients of Fabpad include:

Reiss, ASOS, Agi & Sam, Bay and Brown and Ashley Williams.

Fabpad's office hours  are 10-4pm, shut for lunch between 1-2pm.
If you wish to visit us this needs to be booked in advance.

The easiest way to contact Fabpad is e-mail:

Our turnaround times remain the same: 5-7 working days for reactive fabric printing 4 days for polyester printing,  and we have a 48 hours express service.
