How We Work

Our speciality is fabric printing and providing clients with fabric printed solutions. Often that means using fabric in new ways, or attaching fabric to various substrates in order to provide a final solution.

We offer our customers various solutions that include both hardware to support our graphics as well as the actual fabric graphics too.

Where we excel is in finding fabric printing solutions where others have come unstuck. We’re highly creative and have years of experience within our team. This means we often find solutions to printing that others can’t. And we love these kinds of challenges.

Being at the forefront of our industry, employing experienced printers and finishers and understanding dye sub printing like few others, we’re well placed to handle any fabric print project.

The Science of Dye Sublimation Printing

Dye-Sublimation is a digital print method where ink is heated up and pressed onto a substrate by undergoing sublimation, converting the solid ink into a gaseous state without becoming a liquid. At the same time, the dye then makes contact with a synthetic material (such as polyester) and, upon exposure to the heat, the fibres in the material open up and allow the dye to permeate into the fibre and then create a permanent bond.

In short, we use heat transfer ink to apply images to fabric, creating a bright, vivid permanent printed transfer. That's why it's a favourite technique in the fashion and art world.

At Brandstand we deliver dye-sublimation technology as a process to transfer your image onto fabric, film and metals.

Dye Sub Printing - An environmentally friendly choice

This process is a true environmentally friendly solution. there are no VOC's (volatile organic compounds) in Dye Sub printing, as often associated with solvent printing. The inks are water-based, the paper is recyclable, and all metals printed onto are recyclable.

As the Dye Sub print is biodegradable the printing technique results in minimum waste as no dye will get into the water system. 

Also, the same sublimation print can be used multiple times to print on more than just the one garment. This is a process which is called exhaust printing. Although subsequent prints will reduce in intensity, it will still work for a number of pieces and this will create its own unique effect.

What Textiles can be used?

Sublimation printing gets the best results when it’s used on synthetic materials such as polyester. This is because of the high temperatures that are used within the process that the material is exposed to in order to transfer the dye from the source to the garment. Fabrics, such as nylon, can’t withstand the heat and will end up melting during the process due to the high temperatures.

The printing process will also work better with an industrial heat press as it provides the fabric and the dye with a consistent heat and the correct amount of pressure to ensure that the print remains full and bright.

We can print on to the following materials:

Polyester Fabrics: Satins, Knits, Chiffons, Voiles, Lycra

  • Metals: White Gloss, Clear, Backlits, Reflective
  • Flooring: Floor Canvas 3mm tile, Autex Workstation, Rubber Backed Mats
  • Polycarbonate: Clear, White

In-house wide format printing ensures an excellent finish

Brandstand employs the latest technology to output bench-mark-quality true-colour large format digital prints. Although the majority of our output is in standard poster and banner sizes, we can print your custom sizes up to 1.5m wide x 30 m long in one piece. We offer a variety of printable media to satisfy the wide range of customer-driven quality and cost requirements, be it for an event-specific single use poster, a long-life art-house quality canvas finish picture, to long runs in customised sizes and finishes.

Brandstand Large format digital printing capability offers an affordable alternative to offset printing thus either reducing your annual cost for high-quality colour printing or allowing you to get more for your budget. Choosing Brandstand means you can order exactly what you need and get it when you want it.

Take a moment to look at our work. 



Originating in the USA over 50 years ago, Vans have become synonymous with the very best skateboarding shoes and clothing. We were approached by Vans NZ to produce a small run of branded textile.


Other than getting the brand and colours right there were few challenges here. The textile needed to be hard wearing and fit for purpose as the materials would be used to cover sofas and foot stools in retail stores across the country.


We printed and produced bulk rolls of commercial grade textile and delivered these to their furniture makers, who then turned them into very cool and completely unique branded sofas and foot stools.



Over the past 30 years, Trelise Cooper has established herself as one of New Zealand’s foremost fashion designers. Her clothes are known, admired and appreciated around the world.

Once she has created her initial designs and the decision has been made to go into production with a design, then often it needs to be produced as a small run using printed fabric to ensure that the design and fabric works well together.


We printed and produced bulk rolls of commercial grade fabric and delivered these to Trelise Cooper, who then used them to turn her designs into reality as part of an initial test run.



The Costume Studio has established itself as one of the country’s foremost creator of mascots and character costumes.


We’ve been working with this talented and unique team for the past 10 years , providing bespoke printed fabrics that are used in making up mascots and costumes.

We not only produce and print fabrics for them but we’re also involved in artwork creation and consultancy around best fabrics for use in certain ways.

They love our creativity, attention to detail, inventiveness and proximity to their own business.
