Our Process


Our process for hand screened printed fabric covers all aspects of printing fabric. From prepping fabrics, to inspecting and shipping the finished product, we are focused on quality and customer service


Prepping

We prepare all of our fabrics for printing in house.
We desize greige goods- remove the natural waxes and sizing.
We bleach the goods upon request- to a “whiteness” standard.
Upon completion- the fabrics are pre-shrunk prior to printing.

Fabric Dye

VAT dyes-exceptional fastness properties, no stiff feel.
Pigment dyes-suitable for multiple applications.
Hi-Lightfast Pigments-on Acrylic fabric for outdoor use over 500 hours.
Direct dyes-for tinting the overall fabric-“tea-staining”.
