Our Process

To better understand how digital textile printing works on fabric and to help you define your needs and possible solution requirements, we have defined the basic parts of the process. From design to finished marketable product.

What we do

Provide a comprehensive custom digital printing solution


Your unique ideas and designs set your company apart - and digital printing can help preserve them throughout the creative process. In addition to the cost effectiveness of digitally printing fabric, in house digital printing provides added security. If you are forced to outsource your samples and printed product, you understand the risks associated with sending your creative properties off site prior to production. When products are printed digitally in house, your designs stay within the company until you are ready to expose them to the market. Digital printing allows designers to see their work instantly and quickly make any needed adjustments to create the perfect finished product.


In the past, digital was not considered a viable alternative to screen printing due to machine & ink costs. Today, that has all changed. Digital has met these financial requirements and exceeded expectations. Our customers have seen huge cost savings in their sampling and short run costs. In addition, the larger machines output costs meet the competitive market costing of our customers. Digital eliminates the cost of screens... you can print millions of colors... imagination is the only limitation. In the digital world the cash register drives the sale, not your stock. Producing your products in house takes the expenses of duties and taxes from importing out of your budget.


Our expertise will allow you to print on the fabric of your choosing to yield the best results, because we understand that the process of printing on fabric is dictated by the fabric. We work with you to determine what machine, software, ink and finishing solution best suits your specific needs to bring the best printed fabric to market in your industry. We pride ourselves in the fact that we provide a complete printing solution, not just a machine. We specialize in providing custom printer solutions for our customers, making sure they have the right solution to meet their unique situation or need. And we would love to provide you with this same customized service.

Client Stories

Gain some insight into our business process from some of our partner success stories.

Spoonflower is an e-commerce company that makes it possible for individuals to design, print and sell their own fabric designs. They started as experts in e-commerce, but their passion for their business grew into a passion for textiles and designers to the point where they have become very good at digital textile printing. It has been amazing to see the passion and culture on which their business was founded continue through their rapid growth. We met Spoonflower prior to the launch of their business helping them understand the possibilities of digital textile printing and technology options. They are an example of how we strive to partner with companies in helping them to be successful.
