Soft Signage (Dye Sublimation Fabrics)

We use a printing process called Dye Sublimation for producing our fabric graphics. The "Dye Sub" process fuses ink directly to fabric materials using very high temperatures from an inline fixation unit. The use of fabrics in printing has grown significantly in popularity in the UK in recent years. In Europe, fabric graphics are used for modular exhibition stands, free-standing units (to rival roller banners), room dividers and backdrops. They are light, vibrant in colour, easy to transport and easy to install. Retail companies are becoming increasing more aware of the benefits of using fabrics in their window displays and POS. It is a green alternative to many other types of printed media and is aesthetically pleasing. We can print up to 3.1m in one piece, and offer a full in-house finishing service. 

We have been printing Dye Sub fabrics since 2009 and have a vast knowledge of the Soft Signage industry. We have very recently invested in two new MTEX 5032 printers, which offer direct to textile printing at a very impressive 1440dpi and speeds up to 60sqm per hour. Coupled with our laser precision textile cutter and two conveyor belt driven automatic sewing machine stations, our recent investments in Soft Signage equipment puts us in a fantastic position to help you with any fabric projects you may be looking to undertake.

We hold stock of a range of different fabric substrates, such as:

  • Backlit Fabric (315gsm)
  • Display Polyester (210gsm)
  • Flag Material (110gsm)
  • Blockout Fabric (270gsm)
  • Fabric Mesh (250gsm)
  • Canvas Fabric (300gsm)
  • Fabric Scrim (115gsm)
  • Voile (50gsm)

We can also supply you with aluminium frames or even lightboxes to hold the fabric graphics under tension, which can then be suspended from a ceiling, mounted to a wall, or can be designed as a free standing unit.

As well as interior graphics, we can offer bespoke full colour flags, as well as display flags such as feather flags and tear-drop flags.
