Fine Art Textile Printing
Using the most advanced printers, inks, and fabric treatments available, iolabs can help further your artistic vision by offering custom printing on a limited selection of durable, and colorfast textiles. Fabrics are printed on roll media from manufactures that professionally coat the fabrics, allowing them to accept our UltraChrome inks. Prints will yield deep, rich colors and are perfect for fine art prints, giclée prints, banners, advertising prints and prototypes. We are happy to send textile samples. Textile printing requires a phone or email consultation before placing an order.
Printing costs are calculated by the square foot, including the printed image plus any border or extra fabric needed for hemming. The first print of an image will cost $18, $22, or $24 per square foot, depending on your chosen material (see rates at right). We offer discounts starting at 20% for additional copies ordered and printed at the same time. With advanced notice, we offer hemming for an additional fee. Your consultation with an iolabs Team Member will include a free, custom quote.
