When you are getting ready to design a scarf, you will want to start by thinking about the many fabric possibilities available. Despite the fact that silk is a classic scarf material, you may want to consider other options such as rayon, cotton, or even polyester when deciding on a material for your scarf project.
If your scarf will be worn as part of a uniform, consider polyester, which is less fragile than silk.
The next important option to make will be whether you want an oblong scarf (rectangle) or a square scarf. This will depend on your preference for the material. Due to the fact that we are custom producing your scarves, we can make the final size to the specifications that you specify. If you require sizing recommendations, we can review your needs and give a recommendation based on our findings.
Once you’ve chosen your scarf’ material and shape
The artwork you choose to have printed on your scarf will be the next step in the process. We may print your scarf using traditional methods if your design comprises a single solid colour. Traditionally, we’re referring to silk printing in which ink is saturating the silk and allowing for colour penetration from top to bottom. When creating your scarf design, keep in mind that traditional printing is the most time-honoured kind of printing.
Traditional printing uses screens that print one colour in each place of your artwork, whether you hand paint your original design or make your design on a computer. With eight colours, we will need to create eight screens to print the ink on each cloth piece. Because traditional printing requires a larger order quantity than DIGITAL PRINTING, we prefer digital printing in most circumstances.
We can print your scarves digitally to capture all of the fine details of the colours in your artwork if your original design contains many gradations or mixes of colour or includes an image. Send us an email with your artwork and we’ll let you know what we think is the best way to print it.
Don’t forget to think about how the finished image will be worn when designing scarves so that nothing is upside down or facing the wrong way.
As a result, it is always a good idea to examine your scarf design from several views to ensure that it will be visually appealing from all aspects.
Last but not least, the size of your scarf has an impact on the ultimate cost. To avoid wasting valuable time designing the ideal design, it is a good idea to first discuss the size with us. This will allow you to design your scarf (including any bleed regions of the design) to be the most cost-effective and visually appealing solution.
The material you pick will determine whether you want an oblong (rectangular) or a square (triangular) scarf. If your design consists of a single solid colour, we can print your scarf using traditional methods. The artwork you select for printing on your scarf is the next step in the process. Your artwork is printed one colour at a time on a screen using traditional printing. In order to print each piece of cloth in eight different colours, we will need eight screens.
