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, 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 lower grade on Polyester via sublimation due to our tax exemption certificate.
We require artwork in Vector format in either EPS, PDF, CDR or JPEG, high resolution 300 dpi, repeatable & to scale.

Printing digitally overseas on recycled Nylon in either matte &/or ribbed fabrics will never fade in contact with saltwater 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.
If you’re short on time & require a speedy solution, we print your motifs via sublimation in Bali using VITA 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 – Takes just 1 day for any sample request, strike off’s & production orders
If you’re looking to create your own custom motif/s, you will need some good graphic skills or pay somebody to handle it.

Mostly all prints are now purchased from online vendors such as Shutterstock.
Online sellers offer a huge selection of motifs in vector format, suitable for digital print. Vector format is brilliant as it allows colours to be edited in minutes.
For example, a sky & dark blue, green & brown motif can easily be made into black, grey, ivory & tan.
Selecting ready made prints reduces a task that’s both costly and time-consuming to one that can be completed in an hour or so with minimum effort & cost.
To select your print, go to www.shutterstock.com & type in some keywords related to the motif you’re seeking.
For this example, we used “small flower print seamless”. Adding the word seamless normally ensures the print is repeatable top to bottom & left to right.
Now, in the drop-down menu in the top left-hand corner, select Vector & press enter & you should see something like this https://tinyurl.com/yvaftttd
Click 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 good, for USD 30, we can purchase on your behalf, or you can purchase & send over via wetransfer
Also, you can select any print from our Pinterest page for a fee of 30 USD
Most motifs repeat every 10 to 20cm.
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.
