Designing Your Own Leggings-Frequently Asked Questions

People get intrigued once they see our leggings designs. They get more interested when they learn they can design on their own. We come up with these Frequently Asked Questions in designing your own leggings in Australia.

Will the colours be exactly the same as the images I use?

Like all printing processes, colours vary from screen to print. Please keep this in mind. Our printer is setup to do bold / vivid imagery.

Can I use different artworks for the different legs?

Yes there is an option to upload an additional image for the right leg on the design platform.

What is a hi-res artwork / photo and why is it needed?

In order to create high quality prints we require images that are print ready quality. If you supply us with an image that is less then 150 DPI, the design platform will warn you and ask you to resubmit your artwork. Some artworks look fine with less pixels but others may look slightly pixelated.

What type of images can I use for my leggings?

Your design is completely up to you! You can use photos, drawings or artworks that you have made. Please remember that the responsibility is on you to have permission to use the imagery or artwork provided. We do not copy other legging designers, masterpiece artworks and so forth. Please see our terms and conditions for more information here.

Can you help me design something I have in mind?

Yes we offer design services for an additional cost. Please email us at info@pinstokill.com with more information about what you had in mind. We have helped businesses with uniforms, individuals make presents and so forth. You can also purchase stock images from websites such as Etsy to print on your leggings.

Is there anything specific I need to know when doing a custom design?

A couple things to keep in mind are:

  •  The 3D platform is a representation of the positioning of your design but it may vary slightly during production.
  •  If you supply us with a low resolution image (below 150 dpi) your leggings will also be low resolution. We can’t do magic but some people don’t mind it!
  •  We print directly onto white fabric. If your design is light in colour your leggings may be opaque. This isn’t a problem if you are happy to wear appropriate underwear 😉
  •  We are sewing stretch lycra, so please allow up to 1cm movement on seams. This means we can’t guarantee matching up prints at the seam.
  • Colours vary from screen to print but we can assure you that our printer is setup for deep / vivid colours.
What size image should I upload?

Preferably upload an image that is 105cm heigh x 55cm wide and this is then wrapped around the leg. You can supply an image that is smaller and then this is repeated across the leggings.

Can I write a message on the inside of the waistband?

Yes you can. All our leggings come with a default “Made for you” . With custom leggings you can adjust this for free and write a message like “Made for Sally” or “Made for you because your awesome!”. For our range you can also customise the waistband for an additional $10. You can use up to 35 characters to write your message.


What size should I order?

Please visit our sizing chart here for more information and advice.

Tell me about your fabrics?

We use Bright Lycra fabric that has 80% polyester for digital printing. For custom leggings we are also offering matt lycra fabric that offers greater breathability properties.

Where are your products made?

All our products are designed and quality checked in-house in our Melbourne studio in Australia. Manufacturing is completed offshore in China through a reputable supplier we have sourced.


What does Pins mean?

We noticed a few of our international friends didn’t know what the word “Pins” means. In Australia it means legs. So now you have learnt an Australian word and you can help spread the word about Pins to Kill.
