Vivid Digitally Printable Flock

 

Using our proprietary Vivid Fiber, digital printing onto flock provides a high quality color and image transfer method well suited for creating logos and other graphics for promotional apparel such as hats, shirts, bags, drapes, signage, and soft products.

Products with Vivid Fiber offer numerous advantages including:
 
  • Higher resolution than screen printing

  • Outstanding imaging gradation for better creative effects

  • Stays white at high temperatures

  • Won’t crush or melt (up to 410F)

 

Our unique Vivid Fiber provides advantages unavailable anywhere else. We can flock our Vivid Fiber on any type of material that suits your application – fabric, heat-sealable films, nonwovens, and paper, to name a few.

Our Vivid Fiber can be printed directly or indirectly using sublimation dyes.

Digitally Printing Vivid Product
-Specification Sheet

 

Machines Trialed:

 

Mimaki, Vutek, Roland, Gandi and Epsom; whichever printer is used it should have a Pieza head.

 

Inks Needed:          

 

Sublimation inks for polyester should be used. Pigments can be used in some applications.

 

Method of Printing:   

 

Transfer printing where you print on paper and transfer it to the Vivid product by heating it to 390ºF with a dwell time of approximately 20 seconds.  

                                

Direct Printing:      

 

Printing directly on the Vivid fabric using sublimation ink, then heating fabric to 390ºF for about five seconds. This method offers superior hand and less ink to achieve the same shade.  

 

Please note that temperatures and dwell times will vary depending on the machine and inks used and the desired end product trying to be attained.  Huntsman Chemical has a good ink for this process. 

 

Environmentally Friendly

 

Spectro Coating prides itself on being a good steward of the environment. Vivid HD fabrics are made in the USA with domestic raw materials. We only use water based, low VOC chemicals. Vivid HD fabrics have a much smaller carbon footprint than imported fabrics that travel so far to reach our markets.
