Face masks have become a necessity in the fight against the coronavirus also known as Covid-19,

Officials across the world are recommending that people wear face masks to help slow the spread of the virus. With the highest medical grade masks being reserved for health care workers, who are regularly exposed to infected patients, there is a growing need for an alternative.

Medical experts are saying a mask is effective only if worn properly, fitting snugly from the top of the nose to below the chin, with no gaps. Masks should be worn the entire time you are outside, and should not be moved up and down. While no mask is 100 per cent effective, it can help the person wearing them, along with people they come into contact with stay safe.

People around the world have resorted to making masks from scrap material at home, which works in regards to safety but not necessarily for self esteem or mental wellness. 

When we look good, we feel good, whether that is with a pair of shoes or a new top, masks will be the new way of showing off your style, with other countries making wearing masks outside a necessity, there is a good chance this will come into effect in the UK, so now is the time to get ahead of the trend with custom printed and made face masks with your own bespoke designs.

Digitally printed on high quality, natural fabrics using reactive inks, means they will not only have excellent wash fastness and colour vibrancy but also the inks conform to relevant standards meaning there are no harmful chemicals being breathed in. We have had numerous existing customers place orders with their designs and company branding, so now is the time to get designing.

MOQ 100 (can be various designs)

There is a saying that says “don’t rest on your laurels” which means to be satisfied with your achievements and not to make an effort to do anything else.

As a business we are the exact opposite, we strive to be the best at what we do and constantly look at ways to improve and to offer a better service. That is why we have taken delivery this week of a new wash range and steam unit, which will increase the capacity of fabric we are able to process, thus improving on delivery timescales.

We understand that, you get out what you put in and we are committed to reinvesting in new process and machinery to constantly improve and better ourselves.

You’re stood at the front of a queue… at the cashpoint, the bar, or at a reception. Maybe at a wedding? Or perhaps you’re at a meeting, at work, or in a restaurant, and have hung your jacket or coat up? Or maybe you’re at a job interview where it’s often said that the interviewer usually knows who will get the job within the first thirty seconds of meeting them? That’s how massive first impressions are.

Or maybe you’re at none of the above – you’re just out and about. Wherever you are, you’re feeling more than a little self-conscious.

Why?

Because you know sooner rather than later, you’ll be reaching into your inside pocket for your wallet, purse, keys etc. Or maybe a gust of wind will take you by surprise? And that’s when that first impression of your suit or jacket quickly becomes a second impression. The lining of your suit or jacket matters…

Why?

Because you want to look great; you want to be noticed for the right reasons. You will probably vividly remember that jacket you saw worn by someone who went that extra sartorial mile. The person who rocked a bespoke, stylish or distinctive lining that turned an ordinary suit or jacket into a brilliant suit or jacket?

Let that person be you…

Stand out from the crowd and stand out in the crowd with your custom, bespoke suit lining or jacket lining. Let us lovely folk at Magic Textiles provide linings that set you apart, using your own choice of design or one of our distinctive styles. Companies such as Barbour, Paul Smith and Saville Row Tailors, amongst many others, have! 

We supply individuals and companies from all over the world with the exact lining that they want. From their beloved pets to their brand, from formal to informal – we provide the bespoke linings that our customers and clients want.

Magic Textiles will help you to stand out through amazingly sharp digitally printed linings on viscose taffeta or viscose twill – so we are able to print any design you wish! The fabrics we use offer superior wash and rub fastness, along with excellent comfort to the skin due to the reactive inks we use. So a beautiful silky, sharp look comes as standard.

The devil is once again in the detail. Let the inside of your clothing look as great as the outside. From one-offs to staff uniforms, from functional to fashionable: stand out from the rest and put your individual stamp on what you wear.

We look forward to discussing with you exactly what you want from your quality, custom-made bespoke suit lining or jacket lining fabric.

Happy birthday to us, Happy birthday to us, Happy birthday to Magic, Happy birthday to us!

Today Magic Textiles celebrates its 10th birthday and what a 10 years it has been,

but 10 years doesn’t scratch the surface.

 

Although we have been in our purpose built facilities for around 6 years and the 4 years previously in a smaller unit, we have around 100 years experience in the textile and printing industry with expertise in print, colour management and fabrics.

We have built up a reputation for being high quality printers using various techniques such as rotary screen printing using pigment inks, reactive digital printing, which has seen a dramatic increase in the last 2 years along with acid inks on nylon based fabrics.

To keep up with growing demand and to give our customers a better, quicker experience we have recently invested in another digital printer which allows us to increase volume, whilst maintaining and improving on the quality of what we do.

Having gained the expertise in the printing industry, giving us the best footing to diversify, we have, in the last 2-3 years been manufacturing finished products for a vast range of customers, ranging from tea towels, to cushion and aprons to oven gloves.

One customer once said “if you could do the printing and production, you would have my business for life” and so we did. The said customer has now increased the range of products and quantity, and even sells into John Lewis.

The past 18-24 months has seen the business more than double in size due to increased demand and is going from strength to strength.

Here’s to another 10 years and more people Believing in Magic!

When it comes to bespoke textile products, we are experienced in making various products to the highest standard.

However there is the odd occasion when a customer asks for a product that we don’t make. But that isn’t where the buck stops.

If you have read some of our previous post and pages you will see we are big into asking questions and as the saying goes “if you don’t ask, you don’t get”. just because we don’t currently make it, doesn’t mean we can’t. We have a wealth of experience and a highly skilled team that regularly make home textile products such a Digitally Printed Tea Towels, Bespoke Cushions, Printed Aprons etc.

As we have total control over everything we do, (from printing the fabric with reactive inks, to steam, wash and dry, plus a talented production team that individually cut every item before being sewn, trimmed and boxed), we are able to work to your exact specification, whether that is from detailed instructions or a physical sample to take apart and reverse engineer to recreate the product with your design. If it is a new product to us, we will make it from plain fabric to get the correct measurements before making a bespoke sample ready for full production.

Our door is always open to anyone to come and see what we do and how we do it, if that meeting then turns into an impromptu product development session, then so be it. You can give instant feedback and make changes right there and then. We are constantly pushing ourselves to make better products to a higher standard, even that means getting an existing product, and taking it apart to see if improvements can be made.

Our rich history in the printing industry gives a fantastic base to start from giving you the confidence to know what you receive is to the highest quality and promotes your artwork and brand to the highest heights.

If you have read some of our previous posts you will know we are a very inquisitive company and like to ask questions. One we would like to ask you is:

What challenges are you facing with your current printer/production company? 

As we have a wealth of experience in the printing and production industry, we are aware of issues that arise and have worked hard to overcome any problems that may arise.

 

Is the lead time to long?

Is the MOQ to large

Are you stuck to one design per order?

Are the colours dull and lifeless?

Are the prices to high?

Are the colours consist from batch to batch?

 

If you are experiencing any of these problems, 2018 is the time to make a New Year resolution and  share these problems, allowing us to give you a solution. We pride ourselves on being a company that focuses on what can be done and not what can’t. Whether that is a product we don’t currently make or a new colour we need to match to, we have the experience and skill to solve these challenges.

As everything we make is bespoke, we can reverse engineer an existing product to see how it is made, from there we produce mock ups and samples on plain fabric to get it right before we go to print. If you are a new customer to us and have a specific colour you have used previously, we can match both visually to a print colour chart on your selected fabric along with a high tech spectrometer to give us a great chance of getting an exact match.

On the other hand, are you new to the printed fabric industry and looking to set up a new business with your own designs? if so it is always best to start on the right foot, that is why we offer a free sample to new customers to give you an idea of how the design will look on a finished product, giving you an educated decision on how to move forward.

We are also an open book when it comes to showing people what we do and how we do it, that’s why we welcome you all to come and see us to discuss your individual requirements. We feel it is good for you to see the processes we undertake to understand how your designs are brought to life, allowing you to make changes where needed before going into bulk orders. 

 

From everyone at Magic Textiles we wish you a Magical Christmas and look forward to making 2018 a fantastic year for us all.
