Digital printing on Scuba material
The custom Scuba fabric, UK printed, is popular for clothing and made in UK. Print thick lycra with your designs for fashion.
The front texture of Scuba fabric, UK printed, is smooth, thick and spongy making it a lively fabric due to the elasticity, the back texture is identical to the front. The feel of the fabric to the body is soft and flowing; enveloping the body in a comfortable way. The drape is nice and easy, hanging naturally and retaining its original shape once manipulated.
There is a slight sheen to the finish to the white base colour of the scuba fabric. When it comes to colour intensity, the range is bright and vibrant. The detail of final print, shows the intricacies of the work through the lines and detailing perfectly.
It is good for home furnishing accessories such as cushions. The natural vivaciousness of digital printing on Scuba material makes it perfect for use in garment making, in particular, it’s used in the making of dresses and body-hugging wearables.

Printing is good quality and I’m loving the scuba fabric. However,
Very pleased with the fabrics. Only criticism is I wish the width could changed too to be wider on Silk Impression (poly) 80gsm
Second time I ordered and very happy with the products and results.

Good quality materials, delivered on time as promised
Frequently asked questions on Scuba 275gsm:
What is the difference between the Scuba and the Heavy Matt Lycra?
The Scuba is pretty similar, apart from the weight which is 25gsm heavier than Heavy Matt Lycra. The Scuba also has a very slight sheen, although in comparison to the Lycra soft sheen it barely looks like it has any at all.
Am I able to print in really intricate detail on the Scuba?
The custom printed Scuba fabric provides a perfect blank canvas for your prints, with designs coming out crisp and with sharp fine lines successfully.
Is there a minimum amount of fabric that you have to order?
There is no minimum, but we would suggest not making an order smaller than 100cm x 50cm, as that's the fixed price starting point for the fabric printing. If you would like a small sample, we would suggest ordering a test print with your own patterns and designs. Or a swatch book full of our printed samples.
