|First2Print did the printing for a custom pop-tab themed room for "Extreme Makeover Home Edition" see the bedroom at 37:20 in the video linked here.|
So, in my quest for creative digital prints, I became intrigued by First2Print, a company I recently noticed, after visiting their Facebook page.
Serving the apparel, accessories, home, costumes (they printed the "Spiderman 3" costumes for Spiderman and Venom), and other product markets, the company gives artists and graphic designers a wonderful way to showcase their images. Now, this is not an inexpensive endeavor, but really doable and worth the expense for the right project! (I'm thinking curtains, here.)
What you do:
Save your file as TIF, and make sure the resolution of your image meets their requirements. Create your color index and provide dimensions and design placement instructions. (They consult on all of this) Choose your fabric from those offered by First2Print (paying attention to the printable widths!)
What they do:
They consult with you, advising you on the best way to present your image to them, and any variables to consider. They help you decide which will present your image best for your project. A range of fabric choices including silks, cottons, jerseys, and polys are available from their in stock All fabric is steamed, washed, and dried to be permanent.
This is not a place to casually visit, but if you want to meet and consult with digital printing professionals, this is the place to go!
