Materials & Fabrics

Jetflag 100g/m2 (±3 %) 3.2m wide FR

The JetFlag material is one of our favourite materials to use, and is usually our go-to medium for flags, as the ink permeates the fabric and prints through to the reverse giving a mirror-image. If you are looking for correct reading graphics on face and reverse (i.e. a logo or words that read correctly on both sides) then we print 2 pieces and sew them back to back including an opaque interliner.

Jetflag offers an excellent balance between weight and strength, it is light enough to fly in the lightest of breezes but will last several months of continuous usage. It is ideal for most kinds of promotional and corporate flags.

The JetFlag material can be used for multiple types of printing, such as Direct, Screen, or Transfer printing. For producing flags, we use water-based dye sublimation inks with one of these 3 printing methods.

This material can be used for Corporate Flags, National Flags, Windchaser Flags, & Soft Signage.

Decotex 220g/m2 (±3 %) 3.2m wide FR

Decotex is a very versatile display fabric, used for a very wide variety of soft-signage and fabric graphic applications.

This material can be used for double sided flags. Customers who require a heavy weight, double sided flag, we print on two separate sheets of Decotex and combine them together, usually with an opaque interliner in-between to prevent show through in strong sunlight, resulting in graphics that read correctly on both sides of a flag.

Decotex is flame retardant to the highest possible standard for textiles, making it suitable for use in areas such as commercial interiors, exhibitions and at public events.

Typical applications include exhibition graphics, retail display, cafe windbreaks, tension fabric graphics, fabric banners and high end flags.

Indoor & Outdoor use.

Woven 155g/m2 (±3 %) 1.5m wide

Woven Polyester is an incredible versatile fabric which can be printed and manipulated in many different ways to create striking national and corporate flags. Dye sublimation is a technique where heat is used to transfer the inks onto the material, this material can also be screen printed.

This type of Polyester is also great for flags as it is machine washable, we would advise a gentle wash. This is particularly favourable with flags flown at inner city locations where pollution can discolour the flags. These flags are a fairly heavy 155gsm which gives them a bold colour whilst still being light enough to fly. The fabric, an MOD grade material – if it’s good enough for the military then we are sure it up to the challenge of most locations.

This material is used predominantly for Corporate Flags and National Flags.

Indoor & Outdoor use.

Powerflag 155g/m2 (±3 %) 3.0m wide

POWERFlag material is a premium quality flag for outdoor use with unprecedented resistance against wear and damage from the effects of the wind and weather. The material gives brilliant colour and can last twice as long as conventional woven materials. POWERFlag unites value for money, elegance and quality.

POWERFlag has been rigorously tested by installing test flags on poles in exposed locations at an elevation of over 1200m above sea level. This means that the average and maximum wind speeds are much higher than typical ‘urban’ locations and the levels of UV are higher which accelerates fading from the sun. The results prove that POWERflag will last up to 3 times longer than standard knitted polyester flags and twice as long as woven polyester – until now the best material available. POWERflag represents superb value for money, they cost a little more initially but because they last so long you’ll save substantially in the long run.

This material is used predominantly for Corporate Flags and National Flags.

Indoor & Outdoor use.

Blackback 235g/m2 (±3 %) 3.2m wide FR

Our BlackBack material is a very popular one for exhibitions, for one special property it has – its thickness. More specifically, it’s thickness and ability to block out light from travelling through the material – hence the name, BlackBack.

It has an optic white face which is print receptive and gives accurate and vibrant colour reproduction. The opaque finish makes ideal for use in situations where you don’t want to see what is behind it.

Often seen as an ‘upgrade option’ to our Decotex material it adds an extra WOW factor to your graphics and enables the fabric to be used to create opaque partitions and displays.

This material is perfect for Tension Fabric graphics, creating exhibition stands, display booths and wall mounted displays.

Canvas 300g/m2 (±3 %) 1.6m wide

The Canvas fabric is a great high-quality material used for a variety of purposes, from creating a tough, durable printed texture for furniture, to an element-resistant scratch-proof wall art installation.

The transfer printing method used with the Canvas fabric ensures that the gaseous inks are bonded directly to the polyester fabric, ensuring that the design and material become one – which means the ink will never scratch or peel off, it is now part of the material.

Canvas is one of the Heavy weights of our range at 300gsm, it has all the tactile properties you would want to create a piece that is designed to be viewed close up or handled such as a cushion or other home furnishing.

Typical applications for the material is branded furniture and café windbreaks.

Indoor & Outdoor use.

Adhesive Vinyl 300g/m2 (±3 %) 1.5m wide

Adhesive vinyl is designed for any application where the graphics are to be stuck directly to a surface, suitable for small items such as stickers or much larger areas to create full boards or vehicle graphics. Available in both White and Clear versions this versatile material finds many uses.

The White version is opaque which means it can be used as an ‘over print’ to obliterate graphics or other markings on an existing sign or banner, making it ideal for date and info changes. Working in partnership with our supplier HEXIS, we specify a 5 year adhesive product for the majority of applications, this is designed to be long- term durable and resistant to cracking or peeling.

Adhesive vinyl can also be laminated in a range of finishes to make it highly scratch resistant and to enable easier graphics application.

This material is an ideal solution for stickers and window vinyl’s.

PVC Mesh 380g (±3 %) 2.5m wide FR

Our PVC mesh fabric is a highly-regarded fabric suited to high elevation environments such as the side of buildings or scaffold wrapping, thanks to its good air flow structure.

The Polyester base cloth is coated in PVC giving a high strength material which is considerably lighter than solid PVC’s, which is an important factor when used on large scale applications.

The material has been tested to establish the air-permeability and subsequent reduction in wind-loading compared to solid material. This data will enable structural engineers to calculate the stress loading on a hoarding or building that the material is attached to.

Ideal material for building wraps, banners and low windage event signage.
