Basic Information on Digital Fabric Printing

The Process


Before everything else, it's important to keep in mind the actual end product for the fabric in use. This part affects the print scale, color coherency, and fabric types.

The File

When sending in files, it is best to export it as .PSD or .TIFF. Since digital printing shows fine details on the fabric, it is crucial to create the file with high quality. 

Design Integrity

Print Design is used everywhere from fashion, homes, packaging, etc. and most of them are copyright. Most people sell their designs and license it off for use. If you purchase original artwork, Design 3eme is not liable for any copyright issues on files submitted.

We try our best to complete the print as quickly as possible, but there are certain variables that can affect the process. 

1) Color-Match. In order to get the actual color chosen to show up as the same onto the fabric, we color-match the files. Each hue, tone, and shade adds to the number of colors and adds more time to the process.

2) File Perfection. We know everyone's life is a busy life and sometimes you may forget to double check the size, dpi, repeat, etc. When we open the file we try to make sure everything is correct and confirm all the information before we print. 

3) Fabric Order and Treatment. We have in-stock fabrics of the commonly used fabrics, but for those unique and rarer choices, we will need to order a roll and can take a day or two for shipment. In other cases, you may bring in your own fabric. Sometimes those fabrics will have to go through treatment, which will add more time to the process.
