Innovative Printing Options

22 September 2020

We are super excited to share news about our latest printing achievements. Our company has just tested two printing options:

  1. Sublimation on synthetic hemp blends
  2. Digital printing on natural hemp blends.

Today we want to tell you more about the sublimation printing option. It is a printing technology that can be used on polyester materials:

  • This is an eco-friendly printing option because only water-based inks are used. 
  • The material (paint) passes from a solid-state to a liquid bypassing the middle – gas – phase.
  • At the beginning of the process, the selected element is printed on paper with sublimation ink.
  • In the second stage, the drawing is transferred to a woven, knitted, crocheted synthetic or semi-synthetic material by means of a certain temperature and pressure created by a thermal press or a calender press.
  • Drawings, logos, photos, etc. can be printed using sublimation.
