As well as selecting the right type of fabric for a garment, the printing method is just as important, we want to achieve a crisp and clear print, and ensure that we are being as environmentally friendly as possible with our print choices.

Just like an ink-jet printer, a digital print will print a pre-programmed design on to a roll of fabric.

Digital printing is one of the most environmentally friendly printing processes that is currently available.
