Full Colour Process on Non Woven Fabric

Offset Litho and Heat Transfer can both print digital images on non woven fabric. Both printing methods can print directly onto non woven fabric without lamination. People will normally think unlaminated non woven fabric is more eco friendly. I have another article explaining the reason and benefit of printing without lamination.

Herebelow are the differences of Offset Litho and Heat Transfer we need take care of:

printing technology Offset Litho Heat Transfer
Cost of Mass Production cheaper more expensive
Cost of Sampling much more expensive cheaper
Printing Area much more expensive small
Limitation (if printing directly to non woven fabric, no lamination) print onto white non woven fabric only any colour of non woven fabirc can be printed

无纺布胶印

无纺布上最常见的印刷是丝印,也叫丝网印刷。但丝印哪怕能准确地套印十多种颜色,终究无法印出灰度色、渐变色和数字图像;相反,胶印就能。在无纺布上胶印,最常见的做法是胶印在塑料薄膜上,再压膜(laminate)到无纺布上。但我们通常建议在无纺布上直接胶印,而不是胶印在塑料薄膜上再覆在无纺布上。为什么?

无纺布是种环保材料(不管它到底有多环保,至少人们概念中它是环保的),如果跟塑料薄膜粘在一起,降低了无纺布的环保概念。发达国家在垃圾分类回收方面比较出色,人们在丢弃垃圾时会想:这覆膜的无纺布到底该丢到哪个桶?布料?塑料?可回收的?不可回收的?作为我们一贯的营销概念,我们倡导单一材料的包装,比如:纸质手提袋就不要用棉质提手、金属盒就不要用塑料盖。单一材料包装有时会影响使用效果,但这种理念很有市场,可以说迎合了我们的客户和最终消费者的胃口。同理,直接胶印到无纺布上,与胶印到塑料薄膜再覆到无纺布上相比,色泽和印刷效果肯定要差一些,不能充分展示数字图像的细节。但通常客户觉得这点牺牲是值得的。

顺便说一下:能在无纺布上直接胶印的工厂不多哦。
