CUSTOM CUSHION PRINTING

Saturday, January 13th, 2018

We have posted this blog to show a really good example of a design that is perfect for digital printing, this design has so many different colours and such a high level of detail that it would be impossible to print this any other way than digitally. The artist has professionally photographed their appliqué work and then edited the files to prepare them for printing. The feedback we have had back is that the prints are a really good interpretation of the original. The design has been printed on our 309 panama, backed with the same plain fabric and filled with our feather fillers to give it that extra finish.

Digital fabric printing allows customers to print as many colours as they want and there is no extra charge for this. The design repeat does not have to fit into a screen circumference. More and more companies are now switching to digital fabric printing because of the amount of designs and colour ways you can produce in one print run. With our bespoke cushion printing service you can print as many designs as you require in one print run and as long as they are on the same fabric you can have the bulk cheaper prices.

NEW PRODUCTS AND SERVICES FOR 2018

NEW PRODUCTS AND SERVICES FOR 2018
Thanks to all our customers and suppliers for their continued support and business throughout 2013 we really appreciate it. We have lots of new products and services for 2014 and here are all the details.

DIGITAL FABRIC PRINTING
Pigment prints on cottons – Pigment printing is a really user friendly method of fabric printing because it offers customers the opportunity to print small bespoke collections. Pigment prints are used in so many products such as cushions, drapes and pre-production sampling. We have customers such as Cath Kidston and Disney who use our digital pigment printing service to sample all their new collections. Pigment printing prints the colour direct onto the fabric and is cured and fixed by baking the fabric with heat.
Reactive prints on cottons and silks –This is the perfect method of printing for kitchen products and apparel garments because the prints can be laundered in a washing machine after printing. HTS has its own range of pre-treated fabrics but customers can supply their own fabrics as long as they are prepared for digital print. HTS can offer the digital print pre-coating service for larger orders. Reactive printing dyes the colour into the structure of the fabric and is steamed and washed to fix the colour.
Disperse prints on polyester fabrics –It has so many uses from fabric for film sets, car interiors to contract upholstery. Our new fabric collection is woven with flame retardant yarns so if your prints require an FR rating then this is your route. Disperse printing is our most durable method of printing and it offers great durability and colour fastness.

FABRIC PRINTING
HTS offers rotary and flat bed screen printing on cottons, polyesters and silks. When screen printing your collections you would need to engrave screens so it’s important that you know how many colours your designs are. Most of our fabrics from our bespoke collection can be bulk screen printed.

HTS OPEN SCREEN/DESIGN COLLECTION
If you would like to produce a screen print but don’t want to the expense of engraving screens or if you don’t have your own design you can use any of our designs from our open design range which at our last count was well over 1000 x designs and has a great range of stripes checks and spots.

PRINTED AND MANUFACTURED CUSHIONS
2013 was the year of the bespoke digitally printed cushion, we couldn’t believe how many cushions we printed and manufactured. There are three standard cushion sizes available and they can be printed on any of our fabrics. The options for cushions include prices for printing front and back, plus we can supply feather or polyester fillers. You can place multiple designs on your print order as long as the prints are on the same fabric. The cushion pricelist is fully inclusive of printing and manufacturing. Bespoke sizes are available.

PRINTED AND MANUFACTURED KITCHEN PRODUCTS
HTS can print and manufacture tea towels, aprons, waist aprons, double oven gloves, table cloths, napkins plus any special requests. The designs can be digitally printed or if you require a lower cost and larger volume, we can screen print your order.

OIL CLOTH COATING SERVICE
We offer our printing customers an oil cloth coating service, the fabric comes trimmed to a width of 140cm and is available in a matt or polish finish.

DIGITALLY PRINTED WALLPAPER
Our digitally printed wallpapers have been really popular with our existing and new customers in 2013. New for 2014 is our brand new paper Parchment, this paper is more of antiquated traditional looking wallpaper and it really complements our existing five wallpaper substrates available and they are all available in three different widths.

HTS BESPOKE FABRIC COLLECTION
HTS has its own bespoke fabric collection which has been updated for 2014 including several new fabrics. The fabrics come prepared for print or prepared for digital. Both our cotton and polyester fabrics are available in a swatch book.
