Printing on Velvety Fabrics
Get ready to fall in love with our stunning Velvet Shimmer fabric. Featuring a soft and smooth face and a print that can't be beat, this wonderful fabric is just begging to be part of your next project. To stroke it is to love it!
Velvet has a very distinct handle and appearance, and our Shimmer is no exception. It has a very short pile, which is an attribute to velvet fabric. Velvet Shimmer is soft, with a slightly coarser back, and slides over skin without any resistance. This is a stiffer fabric, which holds shape very well.
Printing on velvet fabric is fun and easy with Shimmer. It produces super sharp prints with very clear details. With the shiny shimmery finish to the face of Velvet Shimmer, images look impressive with the added sheen. Its shiny surface reflects light well and catches the eye when either stationary or moving. It's possible that the pile will be pressed into different directions during the print process, resulting in a varied colour and shine finish depending on where the light falls.
Printing on velvet is great fun and works with a wide range of uses. With a great recovery, these fabrics are highly suitable for use in cushions, upholstery, bags and many more homeware and accessory options. Velvet Shimmer works brilliantly for upholstery velvet, so why not create printed velvet upholstery fabric? There are so many options and printed velvet fabric is a wonderfully versatile textile, so whatever you make, you are sure to have a great result!
Reviews for Marbled Velvet
based on 5 customer reviews
I initially purchased some fabric, that got lost in the mail. I contacted Contrado, and they were incredibly polite and nice, and immediately made sure to resend my order. It arrived after just a week.
The fabric and the printing itself is very nice and high quality, and I honestly cannot praise them enough.
Excellent colour reproduction of a flower photo onto a chiffon scarf. Made a great present for my wife.
Very pleased with product quality– especially pleased with how fast it came! Very happy customer.
So quick, great quality, good price. Love using Contrado to print with! Customer service is fab too.
Brilliant product quality and fantastic delivery service.
Frequently asked questions on Velvet Shimmer 371gsm:
What is the difference between the 'Velvet Shimmer' and the 'Plush Velvet'?
The Velvet Shimmer has a reinforced woven back which makes it stronger, whereas the long pile Plush Velvet has a stretchy quality, which it wouldn't have if it had a structured back. The surface qualities are completely different too, you may want to test them for yourself by ordering a swatch pack and feeling the samples.
Can I use Velvet Shimmer to make clothing?
Velvet Shimmer is a stunning fabric, that has a beautiful, shimmery surface. Although it would look beautiful made into a more structured item such as a coat, because it doesn't have a lot of stretch, we prefer using it for DIY projects such as upholstery and soft furnishings. For fashion, we recommend using Plush, Soft, or Marbled velvet.
Would you recommend using printed velvet fabrics in the home?
Absolutely - not just in the home, but in the workplace and your wardrobe too! There are so many uses for these velvety fabrics. They are perfect for upholstery and accessories such as cushions and curtains. The smooth surfaces with their velvety sheen give them an elegant finish that can give any room a tasteful finish. Washable velvet can be cleaned in a cold wash.
