Print has grown tremendously in the fashion market. We see delicate details and vibrant colours printed on almost all types of fashion textiles. Even sports people will no longer happy with just the usual stripes and chevrons, they want to attract attention in multicolour printed swimsuits and running outfits.
Which came first, the chicken or the egg? We do not know whether the fast-moving digital technology has cleared the way for the popularity of print, or if the technology is eagerly following a demand. We do know, however, that the digital technology has granted us a world of opportunities to create beautiful unique prints, almost on a day-to-day basis.
Digital print offers you the individual expression
We have different taste, touch and dreams. The conservative attitude as to what to wear, how and when has retired. The trends of the fashion houses are more guidelines to fashion than they are instructions.
With the digital printing technology at hand, everyone can follow – even when the trend seems to change from one day to the other. If our crown princess Mary shows up at a charity concert catching everyone’s eye in a green patterned suit, it is very likely that those exact shades and details will trend immediately with fashion makers, big or small doesn’t matter.
Let us help you implement an individual expression or the urge to follow a new trend. If you want it all green, green it is! And we will even have your fabric ready in two weeks.
Do you need help to perfect your print pattern?
Either our in-house designer will help you create your pattern from scratch, or she will translate your idea into a print pattern and print a fabric sample for you. Naturally, she will also be happy to take your ready-made file through the quality procedure and right to the printer. It’s up to you.
The combination of having our own digital production under the same roof as our creative department enables us to help you right away. We also have our own pattern portfolio for you to get inspiration and possibly buy whichever licenses you like.
We are proud of Danish design – and at the same time, we collect our inspiration from all over the world
As fashion makers and designers, you are a valuable source to us. We need to have our finger on the pulse of the fashion market – that goes for the catwalk as well as the counters in the stores. We want to be your partner and your sounding board and therefore we too have to understand the consumer behaviour at all times.
Of course, we also visit fashion shows. We admit that our radar tends to turn towards print and polyester, but we do seek the general inspiration as well.
Another valuable source for us are the network of acclaimed fabric suppliers that we use. They have great knowledge of the current direction of the fashion in terms of shape and colour.
Transfer prints give you the best result
Whether project requires digital or conventional printing techniques, transfer will be the right answer. First, we print on the specially coated transfer paper, and then we reprint on fabric at high temperature (sublimation). When the ink meets the high temperature, it goes from solid to a gas and vaporises into the molecules of the polyester fibres.
Print on polyester
We have developed our printing techniques for polyester, but we also achieve good results on several polyester blends.
Polyester is a strong material that does not crinkle nor shrink and therefore, it is popular in almost all sorts of apparel. It has a good sweat-transporting quality, as the flat polyester fibres almost do not absorb moisture.
Sustainable fashion wear
Our digital printing technique uses water-based colorants only. No solvents. The consumption of ink is highly reduced using the transfer technique, and the ink is fully absorbed by the polyester fibres during the sublimation process. We produce no wastewater from the digital production, and the emission of CO2 is minimal.
Our colorants meet the requirements of the OEKO-TEX® approval in your printed fabric.
