Adding custom prints to an activewear collection can be extremely rewarding & quite simple to handle. To assist you in finding a motif, below you will find a section entitled “Select Online Motifs”, where we go over the process of purchasing prints online for a small fee.
We offer both digital print on Nylon & sublimation print on Polyester using Italian MS machines due to the colour saturation being much higher than what’s available in Bali. All other Bali Active manufacturers only offer a sublimation service on Polyester using lower grade printing machines in Bali.
Globally, sublimation print costs are much less than digital print prices. However, as we import our digital prints requests using our tax-free status, means we can offer the same price for both digital & via sublimation.
We print samples in 2m sections & bulk orders in 70m rolls or more.
Allow 2-3 weeks for any sample request, strike off or production orders.
If you’re short on time or need a quick solution, we print in Bali on a fabric named Eco-Olympus, suitable for Activewear brands requiring a fabric with good compression.
No MOQ – Allow 2-3 days for sample requests, strike off’s or production orders.
We require your artwork in Vector format in either EPS, PDF, CDR or JPEG, high resolution 300 dpi, repeatable & to scale.

Nowadays, brands more often select motifs from online vendors such as Shutterstock.com
They offer a huge library of motifs, mostly in vector format, repeatable & suitable for digital print. Vector format allows to change colours in minutes; for example, a sky & dark blue, green & brown motif can easily be transformed into a black, grey, ivory & tan motif. Working this way can reduce a task that can be both costly and time-consuming to one that is completed in an hour or so with minimum effort & cost.
To select your print, go to www.shutterstock.com & type in some keywords that describe what you’re looking for.
For this example, we used “wavy prints seamless”. Adding the word seamless normally ensures the print is repeatable both 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
Click the motif you like & a new page opens with more images of a similar nature, allowing you to refine your search further.
