Print Base Guide

Alexander Maverick offer a choice of six print base cloths, the range of these cloths expanding soon. All designs - whether standard, recoloured or resized - can be printed on any of the bases. Each cloth has unique qualities which will subtly alter the look of the printed colour.

Our fabrics can be post treated for fire retardancy, the specification dependant on the application the fabric is being used for.

To ensure satisfaction with your order, we suggest ordering a sample of your print on the base cloth(s) of your choice, as we cannot guarantee that printed colours will be an exact match to those on screen.

Also, if you would like to supply your own base cloth or discuss alternatives to the three options above, please contact our Alexander Maverick team who would be happy to discuss this with you.
