We laminate textiles, papers decorative films to various substrates using specialist adhesives.

Our company offers a trade lamination service, you send us the fabric, and we laminate and return to you on the backing of choice

We have two systems.

Wet adhesive
Uses a liquid adhesive to bond two substrates together.
The adhesive is accurately spread onto the first substrate.

Dry adhesive
Uses an acrylic adhesive system to bond substrates together.
Used as an alternative to the wet system for troublesome textiles like Silk, but mainly used for the lamination of types of vinyl.

Digital Printing Services
Enables us to print small quantities without the need for setup costs.

We can print your designs directly to PVC, and many other digital printable materials.
Our focus is on achieving new creative lighting designs from images, illustrations and photographs.

Bespoke Print and Cut Service
We have just installed a new state of the art cutting machine that can cut and crease and has camera registration options.  
This new machine in combination with our extensive printing plant allows us to offer you unique lampshade designs for retail and commercial markets.
As an example of what we can offer you, we have digitally printed a candle design for a lampshade and then cut the flame out. We made up the shade and put it on a table lamp.

As you can see the light bursts through the cut-out creating a unique decorative effect.
Our equipment in combination with your designs can bring a new dimension and decorative effects to your lighting products.  
As an example, if your designs have windows, headlights or flames, we can make them all come to life!

You Think It; We Will Print & Cut It!

Lampshade Making Machinery
We can also source new and second-hand lampshade making equipment on request, including binding machines and sealers.
