1 printing

Printing means that the pattern is printed after the cloth is woven. There are reactive printing and general printing. The price of 30S printed bedding is about 100-250 yuan, and the good one is 400 yuan (referring to the addition of other indicator factors, such as yarn count, twill, cotton content, etc.).

At present, there are many kinds of embroidery pattern-making software such as Tajima, Sanno Fraxel, Wilcom, Behringer, Fuyi, Tianmu, etc. on the market.

3 jacquard

Jacquard means that the patterns on the fabric are woven with yarns of different colors when weaving. Compared with embroidered fabrics, the cost is higher, the quality is better, and the air permeability is better. So the price is above 800 yuan.

4 washing method

Since many products use printing, embroidery, jacquard and other processes, what should we pay attention to during the washing process of these products? We must know the correct method when washing printing, embroidering, and jacquard products, not only can Keep its color bright and enhance its service life.

Printing products

a. Detergents with bleach ingredients are prohibited, bleach has a strong detergency, but it has a bleaching function. It is easy to cause the color of printed products to fade.

b. Wait for the detergent to fully dissolve in the water before putting it into the product, no matter whether it is machine-washed or hand-washed, after selecting the detergent, fully dissolve the detergent in the water, and then put it in the dirty quilt cover. In this way, the dirty quilt cover can fully absorb the cleaning molecules in the detergent, which is more conducive to the cleaning of the product.

c. Do not soak in water for a long time (generally not more than 1 hour). Soaking in water for a long time will not only damage the color of the printed quilt cover, but also cause the fabric to swell, deform and shorten its service life.

d. Do not expose to the sun for a long time. Prolonged exposure will also cause the product to fade.

Embroidery products

Most of the embroidery products are made by computer embroidery, and some are made by hand embroidery. When washing embroidery products, the biggest worry is that the threads of embroidery are afraid that the embroidery thread will go off, spin, or even get broken. The first 3 points of this kind of product are carried out. Remember, before soaking, you must first turn out the inside of the embroidery quilt, and turn in the embroidered side. Then put it in the washing machine that has dissolved the detergent, and be sure to take a gentle washing method.

a. When washing embroidery products, no matter how large the capacity of your washing machine is, you can only wash these products individually each time. Do not put other clothes in to prevent the buttons or metal products of other clothes from tangling with the embroidery thread.

b. Before the embroidery products are dried out, try to flatten the products and then dry them, and avoid drying in households that have conditions for drying. Because the ribbons in embroidery products may be deformed during the drying process, resulting in unsightly appearance. Be sure to use a low temperature when ironing.

Jacquard products

a. Different types of jacquard fabrics need to be washed in different ways. If you want the jacquard fabric to be the same as the new one after washing, you need to operate it according to the steps when it was purchased. Different colors must be washed separately to avoid fading.

b. Because the jacquard fabric is loosely organized and there are long floating lines on the back of the fabric, try not to wash it with other thick clothes or clothes with zippers to prevent hooks and abrasions on the fabric.

c. For the cleaning of jacquard fabrics, you need to see if it is suitable for washing powder. Because some products are not suitable for washing machine, in order to avoid damage to the surface, you need to know whether it is suitable for washing with washing machine.
