Fisher Textiles Announces SGIA Product of the Year Wins In Textile Media Category


Fisher’s winning fabric media include ET4000 Board Short, GF4020 Nirvana Purity, DD7701 Primary Flag, UV2610 Tango and GF9766 Poly Cube.

ET4000 Board Short, winner of the Textile-Media-Apparel award, is a versatile fabric media for board shorts, dresses and Hawaiian shirts that is lightweight and breathable. It is
water repellent, made from 91% Recycled Polyester and 9% Spandex. Closed loop environmental benefits of recycled versus virgin polyester include decreased waste in landfills, reduced energy consumption and petroleum conservation.

GF4020 Nirvana Purity, winner of both the Textile-Media Banner and Textile-Media-Framing Systems (Frontlit) awards, is a breakthrough soft signage fabric with a pigment coated
white-back for complete opacity. This premium product gives a two-in-one solution for Dye Sub and UV printable fabric with a built-in liner and a finished back, providing cost savings in material and labour. Nirvana Purity is ideal for hanging banners, roll up banner stands and single or double-sided SEG.

DD7701 Primary Flag, winner of the Textile-Media-Flag award, is a bright white 100% poly fabric treated for direct print with a multi-chemical process dialled-in for consistent application to facilitate outstanding print quality and control of ink migration. Direct printing is the preferred method for outdoor longevity because it drives the ink further into the fibre, offering improved colourfastness, promoting longer use and better colour vibrancy. Primary Flag has a nice drape, is extremely durable and made to withstand outdoors.

UV2610 Tango, winner of the Textile-Media-Framing Systems (Backlit) award, is the newest UV-curable and latex compatible fabric for backlit framing systems with a bright white point and quick dry time. It is an excellent backlit because of the fabric’s ability to evenly disperse light and promote printed vibrancy of colour and detail when illuminated. It has a tight base structure for the perfect amount of opacity in framing systems and equal stretch (1.25%) to enable a smooth and tight fit.

GF9766 Poly Cube, winner of the Textile-Media-Home Furnishings award, originally developed for cubicle walls, has become a very popular decorative throw pillow fabric because of its unique three-dimensional weave, slight sheen and extreme durability. With the rise in customisation and the vibrancy of print detail utilising Dye Sub, quick turnaround time and low minimums required, throw pillows have become a hot product for the industry and a quick way to personalise any living space.
