Printing Methods


Direct to Garment

Direct to Garment technology has revolu­ti­onised fashion printing. It’s built on the back of the inkjet method, where a print head passes over paper and lays down ink. This is where the similarities end and the innovation begins; we’re not using standard inks and paper. We’re printing your designs onto textile with results that last the lifetime of the garment.

Our printers uses Kornit DTG printers. They’re industry leading, employing CMYK-RG-W colour channels (that's the usual CMYK plus red, green and white) to maximise colour accuracy and print quality.

All Kornit machines use water based eco-friendly inks that are vegan friendly and not tested on animals. In fact their susta­ina­bility policy is big on eco. Our printers bring Kornit’s eco-credentials to bear with every single DTG print so you know exactly what goes into your product.

 

Dye Sublimation

Dye sublimation is the digital print method perfect for decorating polyester or polymer coated products. This method is used to print products like phone cases and mugs, but also textiles like tote bags and all-over t-shirts.

The print method uses a combination of heat, pressure and time to transfer dye to the product being printed on, and since it's a digital method we can use dye sublimation to achieve photo quality prints on our products.

Because heat and pressure are used the dyes cure within the textile fibres and the result is a near permanent, high resolution full colour print that feels as soft as the fabric itself! Pretty cool, right?
