    What is Lycra Fabric?

    Lycra, or Spandex is a synthetic material which has an exceptional amount of stretch. Invented in 1968, and introduced in 1962, it has drastically impacted a lot of the clothing market. Spandex is actually an anagram of the word expands, which is exactly what this amazing material is known for. Lycra has a great number of uses from wrestling and gymnastics apparel, to sports wear, leggings, skirts, underwear and swimsuits. Lycra is also widely used in compression garments, and for cosplay. 

    How Printing on Lycra Fabric is Done

    We use digital printing methods that are done with environmentally friendly inks to create a permanently bonded, full colour print onto your chosen fabric. Custom Lycra fabric printing can be finished in a number of ways. From having it sent exactly as it comes from the printer to cut on the line with the white edging removed. Should you prefer you can even opt to have your custom printed Lycra fabric hemmed, using black or white thread and an overlock stitch.
