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.

CAMOFLARGE PRINTING

Tuesday, August 7th, 2018

Here is a really good example of how to use both DIGITAL FABRIC PRINTING and ROTARY SCREEN PRINTING to achieve a successful end result. This design has been technically designed by our Australian client by arranging a selection of small areas of colours to create the camouflage to work perfectly in their environment and as you can see (or not see!) from the attached pictures they have achieved this.

The design was created to be printed digitally and this allowed the size of the colour blocks to be very small and the fit to be so precise that the blocks of colour fall exactly how the designer required them to create the camouflage. The client supplied the individual separations with TPX Pantone references and the sample prints were all printed digitally and looked fantastic.

However there was a major problem with printing this design digitally it required to be printed on a dyed ground so that the reverse of the fabric was not white. This now made the print almost impossible to print digitally so we had to try and print it with rotary screens on a colour matched dyed ground. Our design studio then had to be place the design into a rotary screen repeat and engrave a test engraving to make sure we could engrave the design with the blocks being so small, both of these were achieved successfully. The base fabric was a polycotton ripstop and this now required to be dyed exactly to the required base shade which we used a local dyer to do with a successful outcome.

The rotary screens were then engraved, colours matched the original digital prints and then bulk printed. This allowed the customer to get exactly what they required in terms of print mark on a dyed ground and it was also done at a much lower price per metre.

This is a great example of using both digital fabric printing and rotary screen printing to get the best out of both print techniques. For more information on HTS print services please visits www.htsprint.co.uk or give us a ring on 0800 234 6686 to speak to one of our team.

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

Sunday, March 4th, 2018

HTS can offer oil cloth coating to all our print customers. We have a 10 metre minimum order and we can offer both a polish and matt finish.

Oil cloth coated fabrics are really popular and have allowed our customers to do so much more with their fabrics. Many of our customers have taken their designs that they have been using as drapes and cushions, had them coated, and then offered the same designs as tablecloths cut to size or on the roll. Other customers have turned their prints into different fantastic looking products such as aprons, wash bags and tote bags.

If you don’t have your own design you can choose a coated print from our open range of over 60 x designs available in several colour options. If you are looking for a particular style of print just let one of our team know and we will send you a swatch in the post. The fabrics come on the roll and has a fabric width of 128cm.

Printing Designs On Fabric

Tuesday, December 5th, 2017


HTS are very proud to announce that we are now printing for The National Trust. We were approached by them to see if we could reproduce an archive fabric for a property they were in the process of restoring back to its former appearance. The original design was photographed by The National Trust and supplied to us in a digital format. We then printed this on a heavy weight cotton satin fabric and it matched the original exactly which is amazing because the original design was a weave. For more information on our digital fabric printing service visit www.htsprint.co.uk or send an email to info@htsprint.co.uk or call us on 0800 234 6686.

Bespoke Branded ITV Cushions

Sunday, June 25th, 2017

New printed cushion range for ITV Studios. This is a great example of how digital fabric printing allows our customers to create a completely bespoke cushion range. The designer has picked the colour from within the ITV logo and we then match this colour and print the cushion back, giving you a printed cushion front and back. The cushion was finished with a zip at the base and hollow fibre filler.

Branded cushions are becoming very popular with lots of big name companies because they are a great way to advertise their brand. They are being used at special one off events such as exhibitions to brighten up their stands and when companies have hundreds of outlets they also use cushions in their receptions and offices.
