Towels Flat Screen Printing


  • TOWELS, like promotion towels, custom-made club towels or beach towels, and other terry products are normally printed on roll-to-roll. The fibre is usually out of cotton and can be printed with reactive type dye or inks and for highest fastness level VAT dyes are used. The easy to handle FLAT.SCREEN Printing System, developed by ZIMMER AUSTRIA is considered to be the most efficient and approved method on the market.
  • In the past BLANKETS were mainly made out of acrylic fibre. In the last couple of years more and more polyester is used - mainly for price reasons. Most Blankets have been printed using flat screen printing machines since many decades. Therefore, ZIMMER AUSTRIA has developed the proven and reliable MAGNOPRINT technology with the pioneering MAGNET SYSTEM PLUS, to ensure high quality results.
