Foil Printing In Textile Industry

As a textile manufacturer, chances are high you’re a foil printing enthusiast. We’re with you on that foil printing process. Foil printing on fabric is one of the old technique in the textile industry as it brings more flexibility and more speed. Those are all welcome advantages, given the high customer demands and a large variety of designs produced daily.

What is Foil Printing?

Foil printing is the process of applying designs to the fabric in definite patterns. In properly foil printing the color is bonded with the fiber, so as to resist washing and friction. Textile printing is related to dyeing but, whereas in dyeing proper the whole fabric is uniformly covered with one color. But in foil printing in one or more colors are applied to it in certain parts only and in sharply defined patterns.

In foil printing process heat, pressure and metallic paper are used to printing. This is used to create different shiny designs and graphics on fabrics. Foil printing gives the focus area an incredible look and is quickly becoming the preferred method of printing in the textile industry.

How it’s done

Actually foil printing is the process of transferring foil from a paper roll onto a fabric using heat and adhesives.Foil printing on fabric is a great way of adding shine and luster to a product. We love how designers have used foil printing in so many creative ways from adding a classy baroque look to a table runner to adding fun and bling to a cushion cover.

Today, there are a range of foil papers available in market. Metallic like gold, silver and copper and regular colours that can give our material a royal and shiny makeover.

You can view some of our textile foils right here.

For bulk manufacturing, rotary screen foil printing is commonly used.

Initially, a rotary screen is made using the design that needs to be printed. This screen is then used along with the foil paper, heat and adhesives to transfer the foil onto the fabric. The cost of making the screen is much more expensive for foil printing that it is for regular rotary or flatbed printing – this makes sampling or customised short runs more difficult to do.

Color gamut is a certain subset of colors and brightness that can be displayed on a device. It’s important for a video colorist must stay within this color scope.

8. Contrast ratio
Contrast ratio is the property of a display system, it is the difference between the lightest pixels and the darkest pixels within a shot. The bigger the difference, the larger the ratio.

9. Dynamic range
It is the range between the maximum light intensity and minimum light intensity. This allows you to maintain the relationship between the white and black levels when you’re adjusting the luminance of your video or image.

10.Gamma
This operation used to encode and decode the luminous of the video. It is the relationship between a pixel’s numerical value and its actual luminous. Simply gamma is the overall brightness of an image.

Hue is the pure spectrum color, defined by the dominant wavelength. It describes the color at its most saturated.

12. Luminous or luma
Luminous is the brightness information of color, ranging from white to black. However, it does not include any chroma, a.k.a. color information.

14.Temperature
Temperature is the warmth or coolness of the shot’s color. For example, blues and purples are on the cooler end, while reds and oranges are on the warmer end.

15.White balance
White balance is the process of removing any color casts from your shot so that all of the whites in an image are represented exactly as the human eye would perceive white. Unless you’re shooting RAW, it’s important that you get the white balance right in camera. If your white balance is way off, it’s hard to correct it without altering other colors in your shot or degrading the overall image quality.

To help you get started, here are a few questions:

  • Why are you blogging publicly, rather than keeping a personal journal?
  • What topics do you think you’ll write about?
  • Who would you love to connect with via your blog?
  • If you blog successfully throughout the next year, what would you hope to have accomplished?

You’re not locked into any of this; one of the wonderful things about blogs is how they constantly evolve as we learn, grow, and interact with one another — but it’s good to know where and why you started, and articulating your goals may just give you a few other post ideas.
