Digital print

Freedom of design with digital printing technology. Everything is possible with outdoor-proof digital printing; any pattern, design and image to the confectionery information including cutting and folding lines printed on the material.

Technique

At our production site, we have two digital printing lines to produce printed materials roll to roll. We can print on any of our all-season qualities up to 243 cm in width. The prints can be applied on the inside of the product as well as the coated side for a distinctive exterior look. This ‘two sided’ approach to designing fabrics for outdoor applications offers unique opportunities for customising outdoor products. With the high resolution (up to 1200dpi) we have the ability to print to photo quality. We offer limitless solutions; from standard collections to custom dual sided prints.

Ink

Our machines are UV inkjet printers with UV curable pigmented inks. Unique due to the high UV resistance, resulting in a very high colour fastness and colour brilliance over time. We rip the designs into CMYK colours resulting in a very stable and reproducible portfolio.

Sustainability

Digital inkjet printing in terms of sustainability is a process with a very low environmental impact. It is minimum application technology, compared to traditional techniques. It saves up to 90% on ink, 80% on water and 60% on energy. Additionally, only the necessary chemicals are applied which ensures no waste. The inks are cured with UV LED technology, which means no water and heating are required to dry and cure the inks.

The prints themselves are already very durable in terms of UV resistance and rubbing fastness. To further protect the prints and keep them clean in outdoor use, they are treated with a finish which makes the fabric dirt-resistant and water-repellent. This ensures a long lifetime of the printed materials in outdoor use.
