DIGITALLY PRINTED WALLPAPER

Tuesday, November 20th, 2018

HTS have added two brand new papers to our bespoke collection for 2014. The new paper is called parchment and has been created for customers looking for a more traditional antiquated looking paper. The new Parchment paper has a textured feel to it and this gives the paper a natural movement. The Parchment Mica is the same paper with the Mica coating and this creates a totally individual looking wallpaper.

Here is the full list of our digitally printed wallpapers available for 2014.
147gsm UNCOATED NON WOVEN
147gsm COATED NON WOVEN
147gsm COATED NON WOVEN
140gsm BRIGHT FOIL NON WOVEN
140gsm MATT FOIL NON WOVEN
140gsm PARCHMENT
140gsm PARCHMENT MICA

The papers are printed in 10 x metre roll lengths and come in three widths 52cm, 70cm,137cm and the price includes trimming wrapping and packaging.

Digitally printed wallpaper allows you to print small quantities of wallpaper on traditional based substrates for a one off commission or to complement existing fabric collections. If you already have fabric design collections or single stand alone designs our in house studio can convert them into wallpaper repeats and we should be able to rework any existing design because we offer three paper widths. Our papers are a paste the wall product and are all flame retardant so they can be for contract use.

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.

NEW PRICELISTS AND FABRICS AVAILABLE

Saturday, February 24th, 2018

HTS has added several new fabrics to their range and re-structured their printing and cushion pricelist.

HTS has purchased large volumes of stock fabrics and this has allowed us to obtain a better price from our fabric merchants and we can now pass on these savings on to our customers.

The price per metre has been dropped to offer customers much more competitive print prices and one of the big advantages of digital fabric printing is that you can print more than one order in a single print run and as long as it’s on the same fabric you will qualify for the lower print price.

This lower print price has also transferred over to the cushion pricelist and the immediate feedback we have had from our customers is that the new prices are allowing them to venture into new markets. Our pricelist has our three standard cushion sizes but bespoke sizes are also available and they come with feather or polyester cushion fillers.

We have added several new fabrics and we have also just commissioned a new linen collection to be woven. There are new cotton fabrics available and we also have a brand new range of contract polyesters which are all fully flame retardant.

If you would like to receive our new pricelist and samples of our new fabrics just drop us an email to info@htsprint.co.uk or visit our website www.htsprint.co.uk. If you would like to speak to one of our experienced team members please give us a call on 0800 234 6686

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.

If you would like more details of our bespoke fabric and manufacturing services and would like to request swatches of our bespoke fabric collection then drop us a line to info@htsprint.co.uk You can visit our website at www.htsprint.co.uk or give us a call on 0800 234 6686 to speak to one of our team.

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

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.

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.

BESPOKE BRANDED CUSHIONS FOR CHANNEL 4

Sunday, April 30th, 2017

We have just completed this bespoke cushion collection for Channel 4 advertising all their different channels. This is now the second bespoke print and make up collection we have done for a television company, last year we produced the very successful ITV range www.htsprint.co.uk/blog/date/2013/02/

The cushions had a printed front with a plain reverse that is exactly colour matched to the background colour on the front of the cushion. It is printed on our new satin fabric which is fully flame retardant and is part of our new fabric collection for 2014. The cushions were nicely finished with black zips and filled with polyester filler, which was all supplied by HTS.

Lots of brands are now using cushions and digital printing to advertise their companies so if it’s good enough for big brands like Virgin, ITV and Channel 4 it’s good enough for you.
