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

NEW WEBSITE AND PRODUCTS FOR 2015

Friday, February 2nd, 2018

Hello everyone and a belated Happy New Year, wishing all our customers and suppliers a happy healthy and successful 2015.

We have not updated the blog since last year because we have been creating our new website, and anyone who has done this will know what a tricky process this is. HTS would like to say a big thank you to Steve @ Fish designs for all his patience and for doing a great job.

If you visit the website www.htsprint.co.uk you will see all the new products we are offering and the main advantage being that we are now a printer and a manufacturer. This gives our customers exactly what they have been asking us for – a one stop shop for printed products!

New products are digital or screen printed tea towels on different base cloths, aprons, double oven gloves in different styles, napkins, table linen including runners, make up bags and AGA covers.

These new products sit alongside our very successful existing services which can all be found on the new website.
We now have a news feature on the website and we will try and update this as often as we can as well as still posting our blog, Facebook and Twitter sites.

If you would like any information or pricelists please drop us a line to info@htsprint.co.uk or give us a call on 0800 239 6681, look forward to hearing from you.

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.

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.

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.

If you would like more information on our bespoke printing and manufacturing services or any of our design services please drop us a line at info@htsprint.co.uk ring on 0800 234 6686 or visit our website www.htsprint.co.uk

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.

Branded Colour Matched Cushions

Wednesday, July 5th, 2017

This customer read about the bespoke cushion prints that we did for ITV http://www.htsprint.co.uk/blog/date/2013/02/ and this inspired them to come up with the attached cushion range.

We took the company’s logo and then individually printed the cushion backs to match the customers exact colour requirements.

The cushions were printed on HTS exclusive poly/cotton, this is a fabric we have had woven especially for our cushion orders and allows us to print full colour cushion backs whilst the fabric maintains a very soft luxurious feel.

This is another great example of how you can create a totally bespoke cushion collection for promotional use or home interiors.

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.

Digitally Printed Cotton Fabric

Saturday, May 20th, 2017

Have a look at these images of a new print we have just done to show how digital printing can allow designers to create tight fitting small design repeats with detail. This design could have been flat bed or rotary screen print but the print mark of the design on the fabric would not have been as sharp as it is and that’s why it was a perfect print for digital.

It’s been printed for a London fashion house, one of three designs where digital printing has allowed them to print in different colourways. The design was printed on really nice cotton and was then oil cloth coated because part of the print is being made into shoes.

It’s a good example of showing how you can place several designs together with HTS and as long as they are on the same fabric you can obtain a lower print price.

We now have new fabrics added to our bespoke fabric collection and we can offer both pigment and reactive printing on cottons. If you would like to use silk or a man made synthetic fabric we can also offer you printing on these fabrics. So whatever your print requirements we have them covered. Please visit www.htsprint.co.uk for more details or give one of our team a ring on 0800 234 6686.
