As the heat and rain are just facts of life, it’s hard to imagine humans having never been without umbrellas since our ancestors learned to fashion tools. However, the umbrella as we know it today indeed has a history that tells us how uncommon its use was for centuries and of its exclusive associations.
Digital Printed Umbrellas and Dye sublimation Umbrellas.
This is a method of printing umbrellas digitally and allows full panel print. Also called edge-to-edge print for artwork using vibrant colour, pattern or photos.
As technology has progressed, this method of printing has been made more accessible. This means it is available on shorter production runs and we are pleased to offer digital print on umbrellas on quantities of over 100.
Sublimation or heat transfer printing is the application of sublimation inks onto a surface using a heat press to provide the required combination of heat, time and pressure. This combination causes the inks to be converted from a solid to a gaseous state enabling them to penetrate the material so that a permanent, full colour image is formed. The colour penetrates the surface of the item so that the result is colourful, long lasting and resistant to scratching unlike some other printing methods that merely print onto the surface of the item.Benefits of digital print on umbrellas and dye sublimation of umbrellas.
