Printing


All dyes used are approved by OEKO-TEX®, protecting our planet for future generations. The testing and certification process on which our standards are based, guarantees maximum consumer safety. Also, being approved by the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) means the harvesting of the raw materials is handled in an environmentally and socially responsible manner, providing credible assurance to you & your customers.


General

There are two ways to print, digital on Nylon & sublimation on Polyester. Being the only manufacturer in Bali offering digital print technology guarantees you that you will receive prints in deep rich colours that never fade.

We also print when clients are short on time in Bali via sublimation on a recycled Poly from Vita PL by Carvico.


Requirements

The artwork (prints/motifs) you supply must be in EPS, CDR, Ai, Pdf, to scale* & 300+ dpi.
*To scale means we require the size in cm of the repeat of the print. In the main, print repeat every 18cm to 25cm.


Assistance

We can assist in some cases as long as you supply the artwork in Vector, high resolution & repeatable.
We have a file named “Easy Print Solutions”, click to download.


Simply Steps


Selecting your Prints

Purchasing prints online - a great cost-effective way to get started. Creating your own prints requires special skills & can be a challenge for many. There are literally tens of thousands of prints available online, formatted ready to go. One of the best we have found is

Pre COVID, Shutterstock would charge approx. $50 per print. Now if you open an account, they offer 20 prints for $20! Amazing. Don’t forget, select VECTOR format & save. We can easily turn these into beautiful art prints on amazing recycled fabrics.

Example how to select, purchase & forward to us.

Go into the Shutterstock top bar & type some descriptive words that you’re seeking. We use “tropical flower pattern” in this case. Select from the top left menu Vector. Select the one you like, save the link & forward that to us. We will then check the file to ensure that it’s repeatable & in high resolution. If we approve, then either you purchase & send us the file, or we do on your behalf. We charge $50 usd per motif. It’s that simple.


Digital Explained


For swimwear brands requiring a super soft high-grade print solution, then we print digitally on a recycled Nylon from the US, named Repreve™. Printing digitally offers deep rich colour tones with a super soft hand feel. Colours do not fade or bleed in contact with chlorine, salt water or bright sunshine.

Dyes are impregnated & compressed into the fabric for greater colour saturation.
MOQ 70m - 3-4 weeks to process. Whilst we are printing, we handle your patterns & grades.

We are the only producer in Bali to offer a digital print solution. All other suppliers print via sublimation on Polyester, less vibrant but much faster. Ideal for quick orders.


Sublimation Explained


For brands requiring a fast print solution, we print on VITA PL® a recycled Italian fabric in one day in Bali. No MOQ. Sublimation print is a process of heat press onto fabric.

Notes

  1. Sublimation printing price is similar to digital print. Bali printers charge much more than our overseas printers.
  2. Sublimation can be less vibrant than digital & will fade in time. Being a heat press process, it’s impossible to achieve the premium quality that digital printing offers.

Printing Sample meters


Sample prints are processed in two-meter sections. Once printed we will send you a high-resolution photo for your approval. You may request the actual fabric printed. After your approval, we are ready to start printing.


Fabric Packs


Having one of our fabric packs delivered to your door in most 4 - 7 working days from order is a great way to actually know the textures & finishing of all the fabrics we carry. You will receive a swatch of REPREVE Nylon Digitally printed & also a swatch of Vita PL Sublimation printed in Bali to compare, as well as a swatch of all of the fabrics show on our website, included their corresponding laser-copy colour cards.
A sure must for any designer requiring to actually know what’s on offer.

You can email us here informing the pack/s you’re after. Say either “Swim” or “Active” or “Swim & Active”
