PRINTED AND MANUFACTURED KITCHEN RANGES

Friday, June 29th, 2018

Sorry it’s been a while since our last blog but since we launched the new look website in February and it had an immediate effect on business and we have been very busy. We have so much to tell our customers and hopefully new customers so we are going to do everything we can to make sure that all our new prints and products are posted so you are all kept informed.

Here is a really great example of how digital printing and screen printing can work together to create a great finished collection. This collection apart from the tea towels has been printed on our new linen.

The cushions are 45cm x 45cm printed linen front with a plain linen reverse nicely finished with a feather filler, hidden zip at the base and our customers own label. This design was set up by the customer to fit the cushion panel and it has worked really well.

The kitchen range was manufactured from what we call “fabric by the metre” this is a directional repeating design that we can cut into anywhere to get the maximum use of the fabric and this has gone across the range in two designs.

The double oven gloves are a top quality product and this collection is finished off with our thermally efficient tufted towelling, if you don’t require the towelling we can replace it with print all over.

Hob covers are a really popular product and these are made with or without the towelling as per the oven gloves, finished with matching binding, loops and customers labels.

Oven gauntlets are a new product and apparently are very popular with budding male chefs or at least that’s what our customers tell us. These are printed on both sides but you could have just the print on one side if required.

Printed tea towels, we screen printed this collection on our unbleached natural 10oz ½ panama and it has printed great and really compliments the other kitchen products and it is a better fabric to use for a tea towel.

The great thing about all our printing and manufacturing is that it is all printed and manufactured in the UK and we take great pride in putting in our own MADE IN THE UK care label displaying this.

If you would like any prices, samples or you would just like to discuss your printing and manufacturing requirements please give one of our team a call on 01254 398054 or drop us an email to info@htsprint.co.uk

BESPOKE PRINTED CUSHIONS WITH MATCHING PIPING

Tuesday, April 17th, 2018

Nice collection of colour matched bespoke printed cushions with matching piping. This collection is printed front and back on a really nice 250gsm cotton panama with printed striped matching piping.

This is a really good example of how digital printing can create a really bespoke collection of cushions without having to print hundreds of cushions. HTS printed the cushion fronts and backs together and then printed metres of the striped fabric to be cut up into piping. The cushions are all constructed with the matching colours and finished off with nice feather filler. We can also sew in customers own woven labels at no extra charge to give that extra bespoke finish.

HTS can offer this service on any of our fabrics and we don’t have large minimum orders and because the print process is digital you can have mixed designs on the same print run.

Printed Oil Cloth

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.

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

Saturday, January 13th, 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.

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.

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.
