FAQ

How to prepare your file for printing on cotton fabric?

Files for printing on cotton fabrics have to be at least 150 dpi in resolution, preferably saved in TIFF format. If you have your file saved as JPG or PNG you can use it as well. Make sure your design is saved in CMYK color palette, in CMYK: U.S. Web Coated (SWOP) v2 profile. The maximum size of the file we work with is 10000 x 10000 pixels.

Will the colours look the same on all types of cotton fabric?

Our printer is properly profiled for each type of fabric on which we print. Due to the unique structure of each fabric, you may have the impression that the colours printed on satin are more saturated than those on the knitwear. Cotton satin provides a perfectly smooth printing surface, while the delicate hair-covered structure of other woven or knitted fabrics can make the print appear lighter.

FAQ
FAQ

Can I order a sample of the fabric before placing an order?

Of course! We print 20cm x 20cm samples and 48cm x 48cm swatches. Prices of samples and swatches are fixed and do not depend on the type of fabric. You can order samples and swatches of any pattern, both from our catalogue and based on your own design. If you plan to place a larger order, start by printing samples.

How to wash your fabrics?

Use phosphate-free detergents to wash our printed cotton. Do not use bleach and strong stain removers. If you use capsules or other cleaning agents that you place directly in the drum of the washing machine, make sure that the detergent does not come into direct contact with the printed side of the fabric. Wash woven and knit fabrics at temperatures up to 40 degrees Celsius, preferably using a programme dedicated to delicate fabrics. Spin at low speed (preferably 400 rpm). Gabardine, panama and half panama require dry cleaning.

What does printing on cotton look like?

Certainly, you have printed something on a standard inkjet printer at home more than once. Now imagine a similar machine on a much larger scale in which you put a roll of cotton cloth instead of an A4 sheet of paper. Simply put, this is what printing on cotton looks like. First, a finish is applied to the surface of the material, thanks to which the pigments stick to the material. Then the roll is wound on the machine and the graphic file is sent for printing. At this point, the heads start working, which apply ink to the cotton and create a specific pattern on it. When the print is ready, the printed cotton goes to the oven, where the material is annealed to fully preserve the print effect on it. Finally, the material from the roll is sent to a cutting table, where every order is cut, packed and shipped.
