Printing techniques

The fibre is deciding what options of different dye stuff and dyeing techniques that can be used.

Borås Cotton today use two techniques: Digital printing and Screen printing.

Digital printing

Digital printing can be compared with a normal printer used for paper. Either you print directly on to the fabric or a transfer paper is used to transfer the print on to the fabric. This technique reduces the water consumption during process and the small amount of meters that can be printed is from 0 and up.

Screen printing

Screen printing is made in big machines where ”graverade” rolls are used to get the print. This technique has colour limits since one roll in the machine stands for one colour. Limit is usually 12 rolls.
