Textile Printing

What is reactive printing?

Reactive printing is a process that gives superior wash and rub fastness and a brighter colour yield than pigment. Reactive print requires steam and washing after printing. this washes off all unfixed dye which gives you an excellent wash fastness.

What is the best printing method for my requirements?

Due to our vast experience and expertise we will determine the best method of printing for your individual requirements, whether this be digital or rotary printing.

How is my textile design printed?

Using reactive inks allows for superior rub and wash fastness, there are 4 processes involved in the reactive printing process. It all starts with coating the fabric, custom designs are then printed onto the cloth. After the fabric is steamed and then washed off. These extra processes really allow colour to develop and inks to lock into place

What material/fabric is most suitable for XYZ?

Take a look at our printed fabric guide to give you an idea of what fabric best suits your individual requirements. if you are still unsure call us on 01538 388877.

Will my fabric shrink?

There is a chance of shrinkage when printing onto naturally formed cotton – this it due to the nature of the cotton and is out of our control and quite normal.

5-10% tolerance

Please note with all trade orders, there is a 5-10% print tolerance of quantities being higher or lower. This means for example if you order 30 tea towels, we may deliver 33 tea towels or 27 tea towels potentially. This is because there are 6 processes involved in production

  • Print
  • Steam
  • Wash
  • Cut
  • Sew
  • Trim

If an error arises in these areas, there need to be enough to cover this – which is why we may print an extra row. Any unders will be refunded for, and any overs will be billed for.

Will my design look the same on fabric as it does on my screen? (profiles and gamuts)

With reactive digital printing, everything that we print is produced from customer supplied artwork files, which we then print using the colours in our colour space which is determined by our printer profile. Our printer profile has been designed to try and create the best possible colours and give a wide range of available colours to be digitally printed from. With our profile, a wide range of colours and shades are achievable within our colour space. We do always recommend sampling any new colours because not all colours are within our colour space, if a Pantone which you had embedded into your artwork is not achievable, our profile will convert the colour within, to the nearest possible colour within our colour space.From this, we always recommend choosing a colour chip off one of our printed colour blankets as all of these shades are achievable within our colour gamut.
