On The Mat

Posted by Scott on 30 October 2012


We now stock a range of bar/counter and floor mats. They come in a range of sizes which include choices of bordered or borderless designs. They are made from nitrile rubber with a knitted polyester surface (non-pilling). We sublimate high quality images of your choice. The finished prints are highly durable, designed for wet areas and can be washed without damaging the graphic.

New Fabric Printer

Posted by Scott on 7 April 2011

Mutoh fabric printer        Out with the old and in with the new. We have retired our fleet (x2) of sublimation printers and replaced them with this brilliant machine. It's the latest release from Mutoh for soft signage printing. It has some great features that increase our diversity and quality. The first is wave technology. The machine has an unique way of laying down the ink to elimainate banding - stripes which appear on images due to media feed or ink bleeding problems. It does this by laying down the ink in a wave pattern. Another feature really like is that it's built for production runs and high quality printing. If you need hundreds of metres in a hurry, then no problem - we can deliver. Another feature really like is the ability to print directly to fabric. It's loaded with a dual ink to give us the best of both worlds. Why do we need dual ink?

mFlag - Motion Flag range

Posted by Scott on 6 April 2011

mFlag Portable flag range   We've put together a great range of portable flag systems. We're on a mission to keep things simple and make your choices easy. Our new range of Motion Flags (mFlag) are completely interchangeable with their bases and mounts. This means you can own several models of flags and have a base for every occasion, ready to go. We dye-sublimate your flags onto high quality fabrics. All flag styles can be single or double sided. Double sided doesn't mean show through. A true double sided flag has an image reading correctly on both sides. We have the ability to print and sublimate both with or without paper. Using paper makes for detail, while going direct has outstanding show-through for single sided flags.

Wrap That Fence

Posted by Scott on 10 February 2011

Dye Sublimated Fabric Fence WrapYou've probably heard of vehicle wraps, but they're not the only sort of wrapping we do. Fence wrap is most suited for shows, events and festivals. The fences are required for crowd control or partitioning areas, providing the perfect advertising space waiting to be used. We produce fence wrap on a polyester 115gsm fabric. It's lightweight, giving it the seal of approval for easy transport and installation. We image onto it using the dye sublimation process up to 1850mm wide. This gives you super vibrant colours and a product that can be machine washed up to 60C and tumble dried to keep it in good order. The fabric has regular small holes (see pic below) which allow air to flow through, leaving your fence standing! It's lightweight, convenient and re-usable. Fence wrap is suitable for use both indoors and outdoors. The bottom fence wrap example is reinforced pvc mesh banner. This also has holes, is a heavy, and a more rugged surface.

Sublimation To The Nation

Posted by Scott on 28 September 2010

                         We are proud to announce our latest addition. Hopefully you are aware of the dye sublimation process, if not jump here and have a quick read about it. Our new heat press (pictured above) is bigger than our previous model so we've moved up from 1350mm to a maximum of 1800mm wide. This is perfect for fence wrap and other larger sized applications. We've been a bit guilty of not pushing hard in the dye sub line of goods. That's all changing now, and we have more products available than ever before. You'll be hearing about soft signage more and more. It's the buzz word for signs, displays and graphics world-wide. Dye sub is leading the charge in soft signage because of the way the ink is fused into the material. The graphic is way more durable than other digital processes. That said, there are still soft signage applications where it is more beneficial using solvent technology such as super-wide fabric prints. The soft signage sector represents graphics etc produced as fabrics and textiles rather than rigid materials, papers and self adhesives. Flags have been the most common use, but we are now producing display stands, banners, graphic panels, posters and furnishings for advertising and interior fit-outs with fabrics.
