Custom Swimwear Fabric Printing

Adding custom prints to a swimwear collection is something we handle for many of our clients. We offer a true digital print service on Nylon using Italian MS machines due to the colour saturation being true to eye. All other Bali Swim manufacturers will only offer you a sublimation service on Polyester, which is not nearly as soft & much harsher to the touch.

Every client of ours who started printing on Polyester moved over to digital on Nylon after comparing the differences in hand feel & colour depth.

We offer the same price for high-grade digital prints as we do for printing on Polyester via sublimation due to our tax exemption certificate.

Please submit your artwork in Vector format in EPS, PDF, CDR, or JPEG, 300 dpi, repeatable, and to scale. If this is an issue for you, please send us what you have, and our graphics team will see what they can do.

Digital Printing

Printing digitally overseas on recycled Nylon in either matte &/or ribbed fabrics will never fade in contact with salt water or direct sunshine.

Allow 2-3 weeks for any sample request, strike off’s & production orders

We print samples in 2m sections & bulk orders in 70m or more.

Sublimation Printing

If you’re short on time & require a speedy solution, we print your motifs via sublimation in Bali using REPREVE® PL/ECONYL®, recycled Polyester from Carvico.

Sublimation is sometimes referred to as digital sublimation when in fact, it has nothing to do with digital. It is a process of heat pressing your motifs onto the top of the fabric, more suited to brighter colours used mainly in Activewear production. Colours will fade over time.

No MOQ – It takes just one day for any sample request, strike off’s & production orders.

Custom Drawn

If you’re looking to create your own custom motif/s, you will need some good graphic skills or pay somebody to handle it.
If you have your own prints, send them here

Select Online Motifs

Selecting ready-made prints reduces a costly and time-consuming task to one that can be completed in an hour or so with minimal effort & cost.

Prints are easily found on sites such as Shutterstock, purchased for just a few dollars. Simply add a few words to the search bar describing the print you seek, for example, ‘abstract prints’ & from the drop-down menu on the top left side, select Vector format & you will find something like this

vector print

Click on the motif you like & a new page opens with more images of a similar nature, allowing you to refine your search further. Once you have selected your print, send us the link so we can check that the motif is suitable to print & if all is in order, for USD 30, we can purchase any print on your behalf, or you can purchase & send it over via WeTransfer.

Also, for USD 30, we can produce a 30cm strike-off sent to you for your approval.

Online sellers offer a huge selection of vector motifs suitable for digital print. Vector format is brilliant as it allows colour editing in minutes.
For example, a sky & dark blue, green & brown motif can easily be made into black, grey, ivory & tan.

Adding a print or two can bring any collection to life. We mainly work with digital prints on super soft Nylon, with colours impregnated into the fabric. All others on the island only offer sublimation printing on Poly. This is a process of heat pressing motifs onto fabric, never as true to the eye with colours that fade over time.

Other sellers can be found at stock.adobe.com, vectorstock.com etc.

We selected the motif below.
It’s repeatable left to right, top to bottom.

PRINT SCALE 1

Also, you can select any print from our Pinterest page for a free of charge

Most motifs repeat every 10 to 20cm.

Mock Up & Scalling

Once you have received your prices & have paid for your samples, we mockup your designs, colours &/or prints free of charge.
This is a great way to see more clearly what your final Collection looks like.

Dyes are supplied by Huntsman in the US & are OEKO-TEX® & GOTS approved, protecting our planet for future generations. The testing and certification process on which our standards are based guarantees maximum consumer safety.

Wash your swimwear in cold water after use, as leaving them damp for too long could affect the colours or cause them to bleed.
