Flocking printing is one of the most widely used techniques for marking and personalizing textiles produced in small and medium series. Ideal for printing simple monochrome logos, flock printing is fast, for efficient and durable textile customizations.
Flocking and other techniques printing
The flocking method is relatively simple and is one of the different transfer printing techniques:
- Transfer by screen printing : high temperature transfer process carried out after printing inks on an intermediate sheet of paper.
- THE DTF transfer (Direct to Film) : four-color reproduction of complex patterns on a plastic film, then depositing a thin layer of powder glue to carry out the hot transfer.
- Iron-on transfer : visual printed on an adhesive sheet.
- Digital four-color process : uses cyan, magenta, yellow and black (CMYK) inks to generate a wide range of shades and tints, allowing sophisticated and varied colors or gradients to be printed.
- Sublimation : Process which relies on special heated inks, going from a solid to a gaseous state, in order to become permanently integrated into the fibers of the textile.
- Direct printing : consists of directly printing patterns or designs on a textile using a special printer, without requiring any intermediate transfer.
Why choose flocking?
- Soft, velvety texture : Flocking creates a soft, velvety texture on the textile, giving it a pleasant feel to the touch. This makes it comfortable to wear, and is particularly appreciated on clothing and items that will be in direct contact with the skin.
- Premium look : Flocking gives a premium look to prints. Embossed designs are visually appealing and add a touch of elegance to your designs
- Wear Resistance : Flocking prints are durable and wear-resistant, making them suitable for sportswear, football jerseys, hoodies and other items subject to heavy use.
- Good opacity : Flocking offers high opacity, which means that designs appear clearly even on dark textiles. It is ideal for complex designs and logos that require full coverage.
- High contrast : Flocking achieves high contrast between the patterns and the background of the textile, making them clearly visible and attractive.
