How good is the print quality?

We’re printing with the widest color-gamut, which creates brilliant, sharp prints. And we’re using the latest inks which means greater colorfastness. And we’re proud to be working with WelFirst Inc. for all of our digital printing, a 25-year veteran to printing, and Korea’s only official distributor of Kornit Digital. Kornit is truly unparalleled in their print technology and sustainability standards.

What about sustainability and Digital Printing?

We use pigment dye and sublimation technologies, which are more sustainable than traditional analog alternatives like screen printing, which wastes a bunch of water. Our digital textile printing solution uses ZERO water, and smaller quantities of color (90% less than screen printing). Read more here about the printing technologies.

How do I begin Digital Printing?

STEP 1: ORDER A PRINT SAMPLE

Before you place your first print order, order pre-printed fabric samples to check out the range of colors and print quality on our 9 fabric types. You can order a separate print sample for each of the fabric types.

We offer two kinds of samples for each fabric, and our print samples are nice and large too, at either 8.5” x 15” or 1-yard: 

Sample Option 1: Digital print swatch

EXAMPLE WHAT YOU GET SIZE
022787_3x.png This kind of print sample shows a couple different prints on the fabric, as well as the CMYK color values 22 x 38 cm (8.5 x 15 inches)

Sample Option 2: Color chart yardage sample

EXAMPLE WHAT YOU GET SIZE

This kind of print sample shows a color chart across the fabric, so you can see how specific colors look 

1 yard

 

STEP 2: CREATE A 5 YARD SAMPLE WITH YOUR ARTWORK

Now that you know how the colors look, print your own artwork on at least 5 yards to test it out. To make it easy, we provide artwork templates for each fabric item.
