It´s really hard to implement printing into terry!
Used technologies can manage printing into plain cotton t-shirts, but fail with printing into terry loops. The surface of this material is very rugged and cotton yarns tend to bonding and overlapping. At present these difficulties are managed, but for the cost of high purchase prices and lower quality of printing. Direct digital printing into terry surface is necessary to chemically stabilize after printing. It´s not cheap moreover not ecological.
Using new technology
Benefits of sublimation printing are clear:
- color stability
- implementation of small series
- excellent color result
- lower costs of buying production equipment
How to combine advantages of cotton terry and sublimation printing?
Terry, as we know, is made from cotton loops. Natural cotton gives feeling of comfortable wiping. But sublimation print is possible to use only into materials with polyester structure. (polyester or polyamide).
We managed to combine two side materials, which is formed on one side only fibres of 100% cotton and the other side is 100% polyester. These two materials are in weaved in common structure. And this is the secret of uncompromising quality printing on cotton terry series IMAGE line. One side for advertising and other side for wiping .
We keep on stock towels size 50x100 cm and bath towels size 70x140cm of IMAGE line, therefore we reduced the reaction time to a minimum.
