How To Select Your Digitally Printed Fabric

  1. What is your application? Upholstery, curtains, top of bed… Think about how your design will be used and browse the base cloth categories.
  2. Then consider what is important for your base cloth… rub rate, sustainable attributes, texture, waterproof backing…
  3. When you understand your base cloths, choose your print. Go to the digital print library and use the filters in the sidebar to search according to designer, colour, or style.
  4. Bear in mind that the same print can look quite different depending on the chosen base cloth. This is why we recommend ordering samples. Simply log in or sign up for a trade account online, or contact your Project Sales Manager for assistance. You might prefer to make an appointment at one of our beautiful Design Studios and see our collections there. You can book an appointment using our web form for your local studio.

Our digital print library houses thousands of designs by Materialised designers as well as guest designer collaborations. Combine this with the ability to customise in-house for large commercial projects and we can, quite simply, find a design solution for anything!

The Digital Printing Process

For digitally printed fabric, first we print the designs onto FSC Certified transfer paper using OEKO-PASSPORT Certified inks.

Then we move to the dye sublimation process where the design is heat transferred ‘into’ the fabric. And if you’ve ever wondered just how durable this is, see the results of when we tested some digital prints in our lab.
