Digital Textile Printing Services – Why use them?
Digital fabric printing has the fastest turnaround of any printing technique. It prints in small runs, on demand.
Since printing on fabric with a digital process uses short runs, it has a lower unit cost, making it the most cost-effective printing option.
No matter the colours used in your design, the unit price of your printed fabric will be given per 1 running metre of fabric.
Your Own Custom Fabric
At Citrus Rain textile printing company, we don’t only offer different types of fabric; we can print your design onto home décor accessories or articles of clothing.
From scarves and t-shirts to tablecloths and wallpaper, we offer a vast range of products for you to choose from.
Provided your design can be sent via digital format, our digital printing services place no limits on your creative freedom.
Green Printing Technology
With Minimised Consumption of Water, Energy and Chemical Substances
As opposed to traditional printing methods, which use a bespoke printing plate for each print, digital textile printing involves fewer materials and generates minimal waste.
For organic cottons and conventional cotton fabrics, the colours are set using a high heat rather than water or chemical substances that cause run-off.
For poly fabrics, we use dye sublimation printing, which uses transfer paper and a calendering machine to apply the design.
Our digital textile printers use sustainable pigment inks to colour-match your designs. Our fabric bases are selected for their ability to absorb the pigment and produce a quality finish.
How Our Textile Printing Service Works
The digital fabric printing process begins when you get in contact with us. We’ll discuss which material you’d like to select as well as any personalisation – such as labels – you’d like added.
Our friendly designers will be able to work out a quote based on your requirements and will talk you through submitting your design.
Once you’ve approved the concept we provide you with, your custom printed fabrics will go to print at our UK textile printing company in Manchester.
Choosing Fabric Type for Digital Printing
The fabrics that we offer are chosen with the textile printing process in mind. Whatever you settle on, be assured that the final result will look great.
To help you enjoy selecting your fabric type, we offer free sample swatch packs. Get a feel for the materials you like before making your final decision.
Some of our standard textiles are listed below. Our natural fibre fabrics are ethically sourced where possible.
- Chiffon – a semi-translucent lightweight fabric with a floaty quality and good drape
- Panama – a highly durable heavyweight fabric that offers high performance for robust uses
- Linen – linens are made from pure cotton, off-white material with a hand woven quality that takes print extremely well
- Lycra – a high-performance, material often used for sports clothes because of its great stretch properties
- Velvet – a soft, textured fabric with an expensive-looking finish
- Twill – a durable, medium weight material perfect for heavy-duty use
- Satin – a mid-weight fabric with a very delicate surface sheen suited to luxurious items
Digital Textile Printing Designs
We offer some guidelines to designers about how to submit their image files to the sales team at our textile printing company.
Since we use only digital fabric printers, your artwork, logo or graphics need to be easily sent via a digital format.
Other than that, there should not be any problems with printing whatever your imagination can summon!
Digital Print Quantity
Citrus Rain’s digital textile printing method is fast and flexible, allowing you to order in bulk and adjust your order quantity based on changing demands.
If you are a commercial customer, be assured that we operate a short run printing process that guarantees you do not miss out on business.
Note: We may have a minimum order quantity that applies to some textile products.
Once your minimum order has been printed, your bespoke product will be packaged and dispatched using a tracked delivery service.
