Here’s a better understanding of what our fabric gifts are made of and how we print them.

We make use of die sublimation. This means the images are initially digitally printed on coated heat-resistant transfer paper as a reverse image of the final design, which is then transferred onto polyester fabric in a heat press operating at a temperature around 180 to 210 C (375 F).

We can print up to 3m wide and as long as a roll of fabric.

We print onto polycotton and polytwirl.

Polycotton gives you a nice vintage feel, and has a yellow tinge to it. I don’t’ like this option too much as it doesn’t have a vibrant colour once printed.

Polytwirl is my favourite! It ends up with beautiful, vibrant colours, and a shiny finish to it!

Both items are extremely durable and long lasting. It’s a hit for our drawstring bags, and don’t get damaged after one look. My nephew has used his for 4 years now and it still looks good as new! And boy it’s been through a lot. What makes the die sublimation process a bonus for us, is that you can happily wash your items in the washing machine, without anything happening to it, as it’s already been cured at a high heat!

So, when your gifts arrive, they are made to stand the test of time and last for ages! You can be assured of high quality! The only reason you may need a new one is because your little one has outgrown the little butterflies or monsters!
