HOW WE HANDLE PRINT REQUESTS
PRINTING & ART WORK
Most of our printing is handled overseas in china printing on a high-grade fabric called Repreve. Repreve has by far the softest hand feel of any fabric we work with. You can see here https://repreve.com
Digital printing is by far the highest grade of print & does not fade when in contact with salt or chlorine. Also, as the dyes are power pressed into the fabric, the colour will remain fast forever. What is referred to as ‘White Lines” when any printed fabrics are stretched, may occur but to a much lesser degree. The issue with digital prints is that we 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.
The dyes we use come from the US, all Eco certified
You can see the digital print machines here http://www.msitaly.com. Results are deep rich colours, no fade or bleed
In Bali, there are no digital print machines, so we have to print using sublimation machines. These machines are a system of heat press with the final print looking similar to digital but not so vibrant or deep. The colours can fade with time also to note.
The good thing about sublimation is the time it takes. For any sample request or production, we can print a few meters to several rolls, in a few days to a week.
In Bali, most of the orders we print on Carvico Italian Recycled Polyester. You can see the fabric here https://www.carvico.com/en/fabrics/vita_pl/
