Laundry test for best print results

Before products are added to our range, they are put through rigorous testing to ensure they live up to our high standards. Products/prints must go through a cycle of ten washes without losing color saturation before we consider them satisfactory for our customers. We accept nothing but brilliant prints with realistic color reproduction. This is the best way to establish quality assurance.
