Use this printed fabric for your Apparels, Home furnishings, Accessories & Shoes if you want to immediately capture the attention of your target clients. Hello, this is Tushar from Charu Creation Pvt Ltd, a fashion fabric company at Nehru Place, New Delhi. So friends, various Studies have repeatedly shown that the more appealing something looks, the more likely it is that consumers will pay attention. And therefore unsurprisingly; garment, home furnishing, accessory & shoe manufacturers are always on a search for fabrics which can capture the attention of their target clients towards their respective products in order to increase their sales.
So friends, Printed Foil fabric is one such fabric which has stood the test of times & has been one of the top fabrics for capturing attention. So what actually is Foil Printing? So friends, Foil printing is a special kind of printing procedure where heat, pressure, and a metallic paper called foil is used to create different shiny designs and graphics on various materials. Fabric can be one of the various materials.
The unique thing about foil paper is that it comes in a wide selection of colours and finishes. Although the most popular colours are clearly gold and silver foils, it also comes in many other colours and effects, such as gloss, matte, holographic and pearlescent which all help to replicate the look of precious metals. In the foil printing process, the die or the sculpted metal plate comes in contact with the foil and transfers a thin layer of the foil film onto the intended surface. As the metal plate is heated, the foil sticks to the surface only in the design of the plate and in the required areas with the desired imprint.
Foil printing can be carried on various fabrics such as Woven & knitted cotton, viscose, poly viscose, velour, organza, etc. Foil printing also called Foil stamping is increasingly becoming the preferred method of printing in many industries. However, it has some drawbacks also. Some foils could fade with time and some foils could scratch off or come off the surface of the fabric after few washes. Experts advise printed foil garments to be dry cleaned.
However, in case one has to wash them, then hand wash is recommended. Machine wash of printed foil garments must be completely avoided. Another drawback is that, the right side of the foil cannot be ironed. While ironing, the article should either be turned inside out or another fabric should be placed above the foil so that it doesn’t get stuck to the iron. A word of advise; as already mentioned, Foil tends to break down over time and fades, so when designing with foil, try and make it look a little distressed from the beginning itself.
This will keep the design intact for longer, and even add an interesting element to your pattern and art when the foil starts to break & fade away. For example, it would not make any difference if a ripped jeans becomes a bit more ripped with the passage of time but a regular jeans getting ripped off over time could make a difference to the beholder of the jeans. A fun fact, around 4000 years ago, a process similar to modern day foil printing was applied in ancient Greek. Under this process, Gold was hammered and beaten till it achieved a thinness of only 0.0001 mm.
This beaten gold was then used to embellish mummies and to decorate arms, coffins, and other substances.
