In recent years, affected by the level of consumption and consumption habits, ordinary umbrellas have entered the fast-moving consumer goods industry in developed countries such as Europe and the United States. Umbrellas with pictures and Umbrellas with designs have become part of the fashion under the influence of international fashion trends. Outdoor umbrellas that are widely used in outdoor dining, beaches, scenic spots, etc., are often used for one year, and will be continuously updated in the second year due to store renovation and aging of the umbrella surface.
So how do these umbrellas quickly print patterns on the fabric?
The most advanced printing technology at present is digital thermal transfer printing. Many customers think that the cost of heat transfer umbrellas is high, but next, I will calculate an account for you. I think you may change your previous ideas. If an umbrella factory receives an order for 100 umbrellas, the pattern is so complicated that it must be printed with digital heat transfer. At this time, there are only two options: open-plate printing and digital printing. For open-plate printing, if the colors are too mixed, then four-color printing is required. One color costs one printing fee, and four colors are the cost of four colors, moreover the printing fee is calculated separately. Let’s take a look at the digital printing. If it is a 21-inch umbrella, according to its printing area, it is about one square. Both the cost and the process are relatively simple and quick.
Some people think that digital printing is expensive. Of course, digital printing is expensive for fabrics that print several meters. But for small quantity customization, digital printing is the most suitable.
