DIGITAL V SUBLIMATION PRINT


As printing can take the longest part of any process, best practise is to get started on any hand over of prints to us as soon as you are sure to use them.

Digital print machines for synthetics are not available in Bali. We require prints in high res Vector format.

Any print request we will strike off two meters & send you a sample via courier to your door for approval.


HANDING OVER YOUR PRINTS


We require your Artwork in Vector Ai, CDR, or Tiff, in the actual size of the print. & repeatable. This can be quite complex to the inexperienced, but not to worry, we have in-house graphics personnel who will go over any image you send over.

There are many sites offering prints at great prices, for example

SUBLIMATION


We print on Vita Polyester in Bali via sublimation print. Sublimation is a process of heat press onto the top of the fabric, looks similar to digital with slightly less-rich tones. Fast to print, no MOQ.

Pros

Printed on Recycled Italian polyester fabrics.
Strike-off/sampling – 3 days. Production 1 week.


Cons

Not as soft hand feel. Colours slightly subdued, liable to fade in contact with chlorine or Salt.

The price to print either sublimation in Bali or digital in China, is almost exactly the same. This is due to high print costs in Bali. Normally sublimation globally is cheaper than digital, yet the opposite is the case. That’s why we digitally print using the best printers possible & import the fabrics in under our tax exemption. You will find that other suppliers charge you more for a lower quality print.

 
 

ADDITIONAL INFO


Digital printing is by far the highest grade & does not fade when in contact with salt or chlorine. Also, as the dyes we use are power pressed into the fabric, resulting in the colours remaining fast with no fade. What is referred to as ‘White Lines” when any printed fabrics are stretched, may occur but to a much lesser degree than sublimation print.

Any print request we will strike off two meters & send you a sample via courier to your door for approval.

Digital prints require 2-3 weeks for sampling & 3-4 weeks for production with the MOQ being 70 meters per print. For samples we print 2 meters per motif.

Sublimation prints require a few days for sampling & one week for production In the main we print in China on a high-grade recycled fabric from UNIFI, named REPREVE.

By far the softest hand feel of any fabric we work with. https://repreve.com/
