Sublimation Printing on Heavy Weight Polyester fabrics

Sublimation Printing - Zero Waste

This process is possibly one of the friendliest.

Artwork is first printed onto a transfer paper, which we source from sustainable forest crops, after use it is then recycled through a specialist waste collection service.

The dyes we do use are certificated as Azo dye free.

The dyes are cured using a combined pressure and dry heat process that does not require water.

No excessive wasted consumables involved.

WE JUST DON'T STOP!

Printing Scarves

Shrinkage

The processes involved in digital textile printing causes the original fabric to shrink. If you are printing scarves, the size of the finished product will be important to you. For example, if you have square artwork, you will be expecting your finished scarf to be square!

To get the printed fabric closer to the size you need, all fabric intended for scarves must go through an extra step to reshape it. Please allow extra time on your deadlines to allow for this process. 

Let us introduce you to the …

Stenter

The stenter is an enormous piece of machinery that has many uses, including coating our fabrics and reshaping scarf orders.

After travelling through a solution to soften the fabric, it then passes over a flat bed, gripped on the selvedge edges to pull it back into shape. 

It’s a long and precise process that needs to be carefully monitored.

Shrinkage Disclaimer

If you have selected to use our hemming service, we will check the stentered fabric for you before we begin to finish your scarves. If you are not using our service, it’s up to you to check the size BEFORE you cut out the individual scarves from the fabric length. We cannot re-size after your scarves have been cut out.
