Print on bolts of fabric for apparel, upholstery, or for any application
Fabric is a generic term used for the cloth material commonly made from yarn, cotton, nylon, wool, silk, or other threads. Fabric is formed from a continuous strand of textile fibers or filaments both natural and synthetic and has been used historically to create clothing, accessories and to upholster home furnishings. Fabric is created by various methods such as knitting, knotting, weaving, chemically binding using glue, bonding, or melting together and mechanically tangling fibers together. While cotton may be the fabric of our lives, when it comes to printing the timeless fabric most often used is canvas. In fact the word canvas comes to us through history from the Latin word for hemp, “cannabis” due to the fact that the earliest types of canvas were made from woven strands of hemp.
When it comes to printing on bolts of fabric the uses are almost endless. Large printed bolts of fabric can be used for apparel, upholstery, or nearly any application where fabric is integrated into a garment or design structure. Here at SpeedPro we have a multitude of products that incorporate printed fabric elements into their design.
Banners and Flags made of fabric can be printed to advertise your business in several different styles such as Feather Flags where a feather-shaped flag where a pole bends over the flag top and with fabric that curves across the bottom, creating an attractive feather shape that grabs attention and is aesthetically pleasing. Feather flags’ unique design makes them particularly potent for advertising brand messages. The design of feather flags lends itself well to marketing for several reasons. Firstly, the curved flagpole rotates easily, swiveling in all directions in the wind. Secondly, the flag fabric is stretched taut, therefore no matter how hard the wind blows or which direction the flagpole turns, your message will remain visible. Finally, as the fabric is printed on both sides, the flag will be legible from both directions.
Fabric Point of service displays have a premium look and feel that makes them a perfect choice for advertising higher-end products in elegant stores. Fabric printed standing and hanging banners and for large panel displays are a perfect choice to brand such venues.
When it comes to trade shows fabric is truly king as the lightweight and collapsible functionality of fabric signs, backwalls, trade counters, tents, kiosks and exhibits make transport and set-up a breeze. Newer applications such as pop-up displays and table covers combine the ancient technology of fabric with new building materials to synergize eye-catching displays for trade shows and for use in stores. Fabric is the clear choice when looking for materials that have a high-quality appearance and are long-lasting.
Another benefit of printed fabric displays is that they can be back-lit to stand out even more. Printed fabric graphics with vibrant colors are already bright, adding lighting will make your colors and images stand out even more. Consider incorporating back-lighting with LEDs and give your booth an extra draw.
Consider also, inline displays that stand-alone displays typically with a custom printed fabric surface showcasing your graphics, and a simple structure that enables the display to stand up on its own. These types of displays are called inline because of their flat profile. Types of available inline displays include:
- Coyote collapsibles
- Formulate Fabric Displays
Formulate Fusion Fabric Displays include island exhibits that feature dye-sublimated fabric graphics which slip over tube frames and zip up just like a pillowcase. Some models include architectural shapes and sharper lines while others feature organic shapes and curved lines . Whatever overall look you’re going for, you’ll find a Formulate Fusion kit to match.
Depending on what kind of trade show you’re going to we think you might enjoy a mini-portable Pop-up Bar featuring fabric that stretches between the legs of the mini bar, to create an enclosed storage area under the counter-top. To brand it as part of your booth or exhibit simply attach graphics panels to the fabric sides and front and we put the whole thing on wheels for easy transport.
Other featured fabric products include fabric posters. Push-fit graphics held in place by a metal frame simply insert the poster into the frame and you can change the graphics on demand. Table covers and counter covers and fabric table toppers to sit up and display on top. The walls of booths are often made of fabric and we also feature collapsible fabric displays and folding panel fabric displays.
SpeedPro also creates matching booth kits — modular display kiosks and counters that you can place inside your both or tent to interact with visitors. Our studios produce four types of outdoor-tent-friendly booth models: Linear pro, Vector frame, Hybrid and Island modules.
