PRINTING ON NATURAL FABRICS

Thursday, October 18th, 2018

Here is a selection of fabric by the metre that we have recently printed. We often get asked by customers about what colour their background shade will be and here are some examples of customer’s prints that use the natural shade of the fabric to create one of the colours in the print.

The fabrics in the pictures above are natural and bleached linen, cotton panama and cotton stain. The panama and the satin come in two base shades optic and non optic.

This has proved to be very popular and some of our best selling prints are single colours printed onto natural linen and another advantage of creating your prints this way is you can very easily screen print your designs allowing you to get a much better print price.

HTS can print digitally, rotary screen or flat bed print any of your print requirements and we have very low minimum orders at very competitive prices. If you would like any samples of the base shades listed above or any information regarding our bespoke printing service please visit www.htsprint.co.uk or drop give one of our team a ring on 0800 234 6686 and we will be more than happy to discuss your print enquiry.

HTS Print Furnishing Fabrics and Cushions for Chelsea Flower Show

Sunday, May 13th, 2018

HTS has printed and manufactured an exclusive range of home furnishing fabrics and cushions for artist Evelyn Binns.

The strict botanical accuracy and superb artistry of seven-times RHS Gold Medal winner Evelyn Binns can now be appreciated in a new and totally exclusive range of home furnishing fabrics, cushions and even bespoke wallcoverings.

What distinguishes this unique collection from most ‘floral’ fabric designs is its use of new textile printing technology to achieve completely faithful reproduction of Evelyn’s beautiful botanical watercolour paintings on a wide range of high quality fabrics.

The Botanical Home range currently includes the four furnishing fabric designs and six cushion designs, they are all feather filled and are available in 45cm and 60cm. The 54” width fabrics are available in a variety of 100% cottons including cotton satin, half-panama, linen union and bleached linen.

This will be Evelyn’s 14th consecutive Chelsea Flower Show so they are a well established exhibitor. If you are visiting Chelsea this year you can see the collection at stand number EA113 which is at the upper end of Eastern Avenue, traditionally the part of the show where all the artists can be found. The 11 acre show is open to the public from Tuesday 21 to Saturday 25 May and attracts a total of over 150,000 visitors.

Digitally Printed Cushion Covers

Tuesday, April 10th, 2018

I have posted this blog because lots of new customers are not aware of how we print our cushion covers. We are bulk digital printers and we print cushion covers fronts on the roll as per the examples attached.

Some cushion printers print on pre manufactured cushion covers and although this is suitable for some markets it does have restrictions in the fact you cannot print edge to edge and you have to have plain fabric for the cushion reverse.

HTS can offer a fully bespoke printing and manufacturing service with the main advantage you can everything printed and manufactured by one company. We also have a great deal of experience and can offer you any bespoke option you might require. HTS has a massive range of fabrics to choose from both the cushions fronts and backs. We offer three standard sizes but can quote on bespoke sizes and both feather and polyester fillers are available.

If you would like our 2013 pricelist or fabric samples give us a call on 0800 234 6686 or drop us a line at info@htsprint.co.uk More details of all our bespoke printing services can be found on our website at www.htsprint.co.uk

Printed Linen Cushions

Monday, December 11th, 2017


Digital prints on natural linen look fantastic, this is a really good example of how to create a design using the background shade of the natural linen as a large part of the design. Not every colour prints well on natural linen but if you are clever when designing and not to ambitious with your colour selection you can create something really unique. These cushion examples are an order we have just completed and they have a bespoke printed front and back on a really nice weight natural linen, black zip and a nice plump feather filler to finish the cushion off. We will have a new pricelist out in the New Year offering lots of new fabrics and cushion sizes. For more information visit www.htsprint.co.uk or send an email to info@htsprint.co.uk or call us on 0800 234 6686.

PRINTED ENVELOPE SIZE CUSHIONS

Saturday, October 14th, 2017

Printed envelope cushions are now proving to one of our most popular cushions, the standard size of our cushions are 457mm x 356mm, 18inchs x 14inchs, but we can make bespoke sizes but this cushion size is the most economical to produce. We have both polyester and feather fillers available in this size. Lots of designs just don’t work in a square repeat, or are difficult to set out and this cushion size allows you to design in landscape.

I have attached some images of a collection we have just printed and manufactured and we all agree at HTS this collection simply looks fantastic. The designer has been very clever when creating the collection allowing the background of the design to be the fabric colour and this has really worked well with our two new linen fabrics in both natural and bleached finish. The cushions have a printed front using the same fabric as the cushion reverse and filled with a feather filler.

PRINT YOUR OWN DESIGNS ON CUSHIONS

Sunday, September 24th, 2017

Great set of printed cushions, really good example of how digital printing can allow you to put a design collection together mixing different colour themes and as long as the prints are on the same fabric we are happy to offer a bulk print and manufacturing price. If you would like a pricelist please email info@htsprint.co.uk

They have been printed direct from the customers design files and if you want an exact colour match it always better to separate the colours and supply TPX pantone references. If you can do this then great but our in house design studio can offer colour separation and re-colouring of designs.

The designs have been printed on a 309gsm panama and have been backed with HTS black backing, black piping and finished off with nice plump feather filler.

Digitally Printed Fabric Samples

Saturday, July 22nd, 2017

Here are some sample prints on the various fabrics we can offer. Lots of customers find it hard to visualise how their design will look on different fabrics so here are some examples of different sample prints we have recently completed. We can offer re-colouring of existing designs, plus you can place different prints on small samples to make the best use of the fabric. A good example of this are the kitchen designs for Jamie Oliver, grouping several designs on the one print run.

One question we get asked all the time is what is the difference between the different print techniques we offer and why do we have the different options. Our customer base is so varied and which is why we offer the different print options. From printing camouflage for the military to high end fashion and furnishing to bespoke contract fabrics we really do now have a fabric for all print requirements.

Pigment printing on cottons and linens. This is ideal for furnishing printing for curtains and cushions and allows us to print on really nice linens and cottons plus we can use the colour of the fabric as the background shade of the print. Pigment printing gives a really good print mark and is a dry clean only product. Pigment prints are printed directly onto the fabric and are then baked to fix the colour and it is a very user friendly way of printing small runs and we can offer any minimum on pigments also we have a wide range of cottons and linens to choose from.

Reactive printing on cottons and linens. HTS can now offer reactive printing on cottons and linens and these prints can also be used for furnishing prints. As the prints can be washed, reactive prints can be used for apparel and garment printing. It offers printing on much finer fabrics such as cotton lawn and voiles and the colour range can print really bright colours. The reactive dyes are printed into the structure of the fabric, it is then steamed to fix the print and then has to be washed and finished. Because of the finishing process we have a 10 x metre minimum order on reactive prints.

Disperse printing on synthetic fabrics. Man made fabrics are becoming really popular for printing and our bespoke collection has lots of really nice looking fabrics. The advantage of printing on these fabrics is that the durability of the print and fabric is fantastic which allows us to print on fabrics which are on inherently flame retardant and can be installed in hotels, schools, and restaurants etc. The range of fabrics is quite remarkable from deckchair canvas to really nice poly/cottons for cushions.
